Photoshop’s interface is highly customizable; you can rearrange panels, hide them, and pop panels in and out of your dock at will. Once you open a panel, though, it doesn’t automatically close after you have “done your business.” That can get annoying—fast. Luckily, Deke has a remedy for this minor irritation. In today’s free episode of Deke’s Techniques, he reveals the preference that enables you to collapse iconic panels quickly, by simply clicking anywhere else in Photoshop. (Iconic panels are the ones represented by icons in the secondary panel bar, like Properties, Brushes, etc.) Plus, get a bonus tip on moving around the fields in a panel straight from the keyboard.

Pop quiz: What exactly does the Exposure slider do in Adobe Camera Raw? Chances are some of you will say it controls highlight, some will claim it affects the midtones, and some will just throw up your hands. Deke McClelland is here to clear up any confusion you may have around this adjustment and help you master exposure in Camera Raw.
Today in Deke’s Techniques, he’ll help you take a dark, heavily shadowed image and bring out the brightness—and rugged handsomeness—of its subject: fellow lynda.com author James Williamson! (Did you know these guys hang out together? Worlds collide!) He’ll accomplish all of this using the controls in the Basic tab in Camera Raw, including the Exposure slider. He’ll also show how to avoid clipping your shadows and highlights, work directly in the histogram, and make other adjustments in the Effects tab to diminish any noise that might occur as the result of your exposure adjustment.
