Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up your Photoshop workspace, part of Digital Matte Painting: 1 Concept.
Before we get started with our concept painting, I want to have you optimize your…Photoshop work space for matte painting. If you haven't changed your work space in…a previous session, Photoshop defaults to the Essentials work space.…You can go up to the right corner of the interface, and look through the Drop- down…menu to see the various preset work spaces that Photoshop offers.…The painting work space is a good starting place for creating a special matte…painting work space. So, go ahead and choose that one from the menu.…
Your painting work space may look slightly different from mine, depending on what…options were chosen in a previous session. Your work space should be optimized, so…that the windows you use less often are hidden.…If you decide you need a certain window that is not visible, you can always go up…to the top menu, choose Window, and then the window you need.…In the painting work space, there are a lot of windows open taking up space that…you don't need. So, first close swatches.…I will encourage you to do all of your color picking using the heads-up color…
