In Photoshop CS6 Essential Training, Julieanne Kost demonstrates how to produce high-quality images in a short amount of time, using a combination of Adobe Photoshop CS6, Bridge, and Camera Raw.
The course details the Photoshop features and creative options, and shows efficient ways to perform common editing tasks, including noise reduction, shadow and highlight detail recovery, retouching, and combining multiple images. Along the way, the course explores techniques for nondestructive editing and compositing using layers, blending modes, layer masks, and much more.
Let's begin in Bridge and select these three images to open in Photoshop. Once they're selected, I'll use Command+O or Ctrl+O on Windows to open them in Photoshop. Now that the three files are open, I can navigate between the three documents by just clicking on the tab at the top of the window. If I want to rearrange the order in which they appear, I can click on a tab and then just drag it to the right to move it. If I want to remove one of my images from the tabbed area at the top and float it, I can just click and drag down into the image area and let go.
I can do this with multiple documents if I want to, and in fact, I can even tab two floating documents by just clicking and dragging one on top of the other. Now you can see that in this floating window I have these two tabbed documents. If I want to put them all back together, I simply click on the title bar area and drag it up to the tab area in Photoshop. I really prefer this method of looking at my images because I always know exactly where to find them. Sometimes when you drag them out and then you click on another image, the floating document will go behind the other images.
In order to get that back, you can always go under the Window menu and at the very bottom, it will list your images. So in this case, I would just select WhiteSands04 in order to bring back that floating document. I'll go ahead and put it with the others for now. And then I just want to show you that you can close your tab documents by clicking on the X icon, or you can use the keyboard shortcut Command+W or Ctrl+W.
