Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Customize the Photoshop interface, part of Customize Photoshop: A Practical Approach.
- [Voiceover] In this segment, I'd like to talk about…customizing the way your interface and your tools appear…and sometimes, in some cases, even work in Photoshop…and to do this, we're going to work through Prefrences…and we're going to start with general preferences,…which is, as you can see, the keyboard shortcut…Command + K on Mac, Control + K on Windows.…And I'm not going to talk about setting all these,…but just a few key ones here.…One to pay attention to here is this one right here.…If you do a lot of image compositing and you're,…you know, placing a lot of images inside of other images,…this may be a nice one to turn on because…you may have to automatically resize a lot of your images,…particularly if they're not at the same dimensions…and dimensional resolutions.…
So that's a good one to turn on…if you do a lot of compositing.…Export Clipboard by default is turned on,…notice mine's turned off for a very good reason…is if you're copying and pasting a lot from one image…to another or layer to another in Photoshop,…
