3 Quick and Useful Photoshop Tips

Everybody's busy at the holidays (including me!)
so here's just 3 quick tips that will speed you
on your Photoshop way  - so you can get back out
there and finish your shopping!

1…Make a New Document from a Layer
To create a brand new picture from any layer,   
go into the Layers palette and choose Duplicate Layer. 
Then, change the document setting to "New”, say OK,
and begin working fresh on a new picture file from there.

2…Layers Palette or Tool Bar Getting in the way?
Press “Tab” to make them magically disappear.
Press "Tab" again and they’ll come back.

3…How’s the view?
Expand your viewing and work options by pressing the letter ‘F’
to toggle through your view options up to full screen.

That's it!

Go on now. There's is no more. Oh, wait. There is one more thing...

Until next time...remember to really take time to enjoy the holiday season because, as the late Andy Rooney  used to say, "Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes."

We all could use just a little more time.
