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. And once again looking at my files inside Bridge. I've already got the tiff and jpeg files open inside Photoshop. I'm going to open the psd document as well by double clicking on it. And I'm going to get that alert message telling me I'm missing the fonts. Doesn't matter, unless you want to edit that text. So I'll just go ahead and click OK, and zoom on in.
And now I'm going to go back to Bridge and grab that png file by going up to the file menu and choosing 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, choose open with and choose Photoshop. Or if you want these PNG files to open in Photoshop by default. Then you go up to the edit menu here on the PC and you choose the preferences command.
On a Mac you go to the bridge menu and choose preferences. Either way you have a keyboard shortcut of Ctrl + K on the PC, or Cmd + K on the Mac. Then over here in 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 P's 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.png, then it opens automatically. Inside Photoshop. Now, let's say we decide to make some changes here. I'll switch back to the welcome.tif file. And I'll go up the Image menu, choose adjustments, and choose one of the more fun commands. Hue saturation, which allows you to rotate the colors inside the image, as you're seeing here. I'm going to go ahead and send the colors to purple by taking this hue value to +9, 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 the file menu, and choose the close command. Which has a shortcut of control W or command W on the Mac. At which point, I'll get an alert method. Because, after all, I have some unsaved changes. And any time you have unsaved changes inside Photoshop. You'll see a little asterisk after the filename, all the way after, outside the little parentheses here, 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 the 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.jpg 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. Alright let's make changes to the other open files. I'll switch over to welcome.psd 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 save-able change in Photoshop, which is why we now have an asterisk after the file name.
And now go over to the png graphic, and this time we'll go out to the image menu. And choose the invert command, just for the sake of variety here, then we end up with this effect here. Now, let's say I want to close every single one of these files. Then I go up to the file menu and choose the 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 reply to all check box, 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 a 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 to the file menu and you choose the exit command on the Mac, you go to the Photoshop menu and choose the quit command. In both cases you have a keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Q for quite and Command+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.
