Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Personalizing the workspace, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…In order to navigate quickly between tools, the tool options, the menu…items across the top and our panels, I like to customize the Photoshop workspace.…First of all, since all of the tools are on the left,…let's dock the panels that we're going to use next to them so…that we don't have to keep crossing the entire width of the monitor…every time we need to select a different layer or mask or tool.…Now some of…you might be thinking well, why don't you just move the tools over to the…right-hand side, which would be perfectly fine,…except most of the options for the tools…that I need are back over on the left-hand side, and most of the menus…that I use more regularly are across the top, again on the left hand side.…
Of course if I had two monitors I could also…set up all of my panels on the secondary monitor.…But for now let's customize the workspace so that we…don't have to waste as much time moving between the different tools that we need.…I'm going to select my Layers panel and I'm going to…click on the tab and drag it over to the left.…
