Get the ultimate foundation in Adobe Photoshop CC, in this update to the flagship series Photoshop One-on-One. Deke takes you on a personalized tour of the basic tools and techniques that lie behind great images and graphic design, while keeping you up to speed with the newest features offered with Creative Cloud. Learn to open images from multiple sources, get around the panels and menus, and work with layers—the feature that allows you to perform masking, combine effects, and perform other edits nondestructively. Then Deke shows how to perform important editing tasks, such as cropping and straightening images, adjusting the luminance of your image, correcting color imbalances and enhancing color creatively, and finally, retouching and healing.
Presumably, after you modify a graphic, you're going to want to close it, which is why I'm going to end this chapter by showing you how closing and quitting work. Once again looking at my files inside Bridge, I have already got the TIFF and JPEG files up and inside Photoshop. I'll open that PSD document as well by double clicking on it. I'll get that same warning that we saw before, the missing fonts warning here. Doesn't matter unless you want to edit the text. So, I'll go ahead and, but we don't need the fonts unless you want to edit the text.
So I'll go ahead and click on the Don't Resolve button and zoom on in. And now I'm going to go back to Bridge and grab that PNG file by going up to File > Browse in Bridge. And the reason I'm doing this is because if you installed Fireworks, then Bridge is set up to go ahead and open PNG files in Fireworks by default. And here's how you change that. You can either just right click inside the image > Open With > Photoshop. Or, if you want these PNG files to open in Photoshop by default, then you go up to the Edit menu here on a PC, and you choose a Preferences command.
On a MAC, you go to the Bridge Menu > Preferences. Either way you've got a keyboard shortcut of Ctr+K on the PC or Cmd+K on the MAC. Then over here on the left hand list, switch to this option, File Type Associations. And you're going to have to scroll all the way down to the Ps, at which point you'll see the Portable Network Graphics format. And you want to change that from Fireworks to Photoshop, and then go ahead and click the OK button.
And now if you double click on welcome.pmg then it opens automatically inside Photoshop. Now, let's say we decide to make some changes here. I'll switch back to the welcome.tiff file, and I'll go up to the Image menu > Adjustments, and choose one of the more fun commands, Hue Saturation, which allows you to rotate the colors inside the image as you are seeing here. I'm going to go ahead and send the colors to purple by taking this hue value to plus 90, and then I'll click OK.
Now let's say at this point I want to close the image. Obviously I can click on the little close box up here in the Title tab or in the Title bar. Or I can go up to File > Close Command, which has a shortcut of Ctrl+W, or Cmd+W on the Mac. At which point I'll get an alert message, because after all I have some unsaved changes. And anytime you have unsaved changes inside Photoshop, you'll see a little asterisk after the file name, all the way after, outside the little parentheses here.
And that indicates that you've done something that has not been saved to that file, and that indicates that you've done something to the file that has not been saved. Now, if you want to save the changes, you click on the Yes button here on the PC, or the, or the Save button on a Mac. If you don't want to save your changes then you click on the No button here on the PC, or the Don't Save button on the Mac. And then if you wanted to cancel the Save operation, you would just go ahead and click on the Cancel button, or press the Escape key. And that's what I'm going to do in this case because, for now I want to keep the file open.
I'm now going to switch over to the welcome.JPEG file here. And notice underneath the Close Command here in the File menu you've got this guy, Close and go to Bridge, which is not only going to close the image, in this case there are no unsaved changes, but it's going to switch me back over to Bridge as well. To return to Photoshop, you just go ahead and click on the boomerang icon, which takes you back to the last used Creative Cloud application. All right, let's make changes to the other open files.
I'll switch over to welcome.pst here. And I'm just going to turn off a layer, and then turn it back on by clicking on the eyeball icon here. And that's considered a saveable change in Photoshop, which is why we now have a asterisk after the file name. And now I'll go over to the PNG graphic, and this time we will go out to Image > Invert, just for the sake of variety here. And we end up with this effect here. Now let's say I want to close every single one of these files.
When I go up to File > Close All command, at which point I'm going to get this alert message asking me if I want to save the changes to the front file here. And let's say I don't want to save any of the changes. I want to click No, but I don't want to have to click No three times in a row. In that case, you just go ahead and turn on the Apply to All checkbox and then click whatever button you want. In my case, I'm going to click the No button here on the PC. That would be the Don't Save button on the Mac. And that goes ahead and closes all the files without saving them in a single operation.
Now if you want to quit Photoshop, then you go up File > Exit. On the Mac, you go to the Photoshop menu > Quit. In both cases, you have a keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+Q for quit here on the PC, and Cmd+Q on the Mac. And that will go ahead and quit Photoshop and return you to the last used application, which in my case is Bridge. And we'll see that none of the files has been modified.
And that's how you close one or more files with and without saving the changes, as well as exit Photoshop.
