    Just got Photoshop.

    Glad I remembered this section - just got Photoshop. So far I've sat and stared at it and gone "urmmmm uh"

    Is there away that I can have the little icons and text underneath them saying what they do, rather than having to scroll over them to see what they are meant to do... at least until I get used to it?

    I don't think you can do this. I would recommend Adobe's Classroom in a Book, it's structured very well for learning the full range of Photoshop.

      Di I did the same as you when I first installed PS but found that apart from the Adobe online videos there is a wealth of info on YouTube and that is where I get most on my help, but to answer your question I don't believe it is possible.

        Take a screenshot, print it off, and write the descriptions on it, and sit it by your keyboard. Just a thought

          I have just moved from Photoshop Essentials to Photoshop CC, and it is a bit of a learning curve for me.
          Last night whilst looking for something I found this handy image of all tools...

          A useful overview of the tools, might help you a bit.

            Might invest in the book. Been using GNU so that as almost become second nature, forgot about Youtube for a moment, been on and found quite a few videos. Thanks for the mental reminder.

            Also very handy site that. Thanks.

              When I first started using Photoshop, I think it was Photoshop 2 .............. not CS2, just 2. It came with a manual as thick as War and Peace and when I thought I was ready to start using "Layers", I read the chapter on layers. By the time I had finished the chapter, I knew much less about the subject than before I started.

              The training books and videos available now are superb and quite easy to understand compared to then and I wish you well in your new adventure Di.

                      Hi Di
                      Well done on what you have done so far.
                      just out of curiosity, hows about starting a new thread here and telling everyone including me how you made the borders and saved as a brush.
                      It sounds a good idea.

                              Nat.

                              Best of luck with the course. What I've found locally clashes with my work hours. I'll find something eventually but for now will rely on Youtube and books.


                              Phil, Thanks for that. Found him and book marked. Alas not had chance to do anything this weekend. Real life and work does seem to intrude.
