When you open an image in Photoshop it opens up to look like this. It puts the image in its own image window, and at the very top of the window we have the title bar that we can click and drag to reposition that image anywhere on our computer screen. Also notice that the title bar contains the name of the image as it was found on whatever medium that you chose to open it from, and it also gives me the current zoom ratio. In this case about 30%. And it also gives me the color space that this image is currently in. In this case RGB. If I go down to the bottom right hand corner of my image, I can click and drag on this small area to resize the image window. And now of course my image window is smaller than the actual image, which means that I might need to reposition the image inside my image window, either by using the hand tool here and clicking and dragging actually in the image to see a different portion of the image. Or another way I could do that is also by using the scroll bars, and you'll get the scroll bars of course when your image window is smaller than the actual image. And another way to move around the image window is to click the up and down arrows or the left and right arrows next to your scroll bar. And finally I could just click in an area that the scroll bar is not in, in the scroll bar area. And that would jump to showing me the other sections of the image. I can re-expand my image window by clicking on this icon right here, and it will open as large as possible to show me the image at this particular zoom ratio. If you wanted to zoom in a little bit more, I could use the zoom tool. That's the this tool right here, looks like a magnifying tool. And when you click on it the default is zoom in. And that's the plus icon, so if I click once it begins to zoom in, and notice how my zoom ratio changes. So currently I'm seeing 2 pixels for every 1-screen pixel. And when you are at a 100%, it's showing me 1-image pixels for every screen pixel. I am going to hold down the option key while I'm using the zoom tool to zoom back out. We can change the zoom ratio by going down into this area right here and selecting this value, and typing in a new value, say 60, and I'll just hit the return key and it will zoom to 60%. This icon right here will allow me to access the web DAV options. Web DAV stands for web distributed authoring and versioning. And if you are working in a work group environment, this might be activated and enabled, in which case you can check out images from a Web DAV server while other people are using the images. And this is designed so that one person can edit the image, while other people can actually use it but not edit it. If you want to learn more about, I suggest you speak to your network expert. This section right here shows me information about my document. Currently it is showing me my document size. And we can choose from different options by clicking on this pull down menu here. See, you can see that we have different options, from document size, we can see the color profile being used, the document dimensions, how much available scratch disk space we have with, while using this image, the overall efficiency or working with this image and your CPU, And we could also choose to always know what the current tool is - if I choose a different tool that will be updated right now in that section. Generally I am, usually leave it on document size, and I want to talk about what this means here. Currently we have two different numbers which happens to be the same. And one number is the size of the image if it were being printed or flattened out. And the other is the size including all layers and channels. So I haven't really added any layers. But if I added a new layer and added some content on that layer - so I'll just drag out a selection marquee and fill that with a little bit of color. Notice how that second value has changed. It's now larger than the first value, indicating that my Photoshop document with layers is about 7 megabytes, but flattened out it would be about 5 & 1/2 megabytes. Finally, the way I usually look at my images in Photoshop is using the second viewing mode. Currently the default opens to the standard viewing mode and this will show you other images that you might have open in the background and/or your desktop. Generally I like to work in full screen mode and that means if you click that, I'll zoom out by hitting the command and minus key - it puts your image on a gray background.
