Part I: Welcome to Photoshop
Brush (Chapter 5): Drag with the brush tool to paint soft lines. If you're thinking that sounds kind
of dull, wait until you learn about the multitude of settings available to you in the Brushes palette.
Pencil (Chapter 5): Drag with the pencil tool to paint jagged, hard-edged lines. Its main purpose
is to clean up individual pixels when you're feeling fussy.
Clone stamp (Chapter 7): This tool copies one portion of the image onto another. Alt-click (Win) or Option-click (Mac) the part of your image you want to clone, and then drag to clone that area to another portion of the image.
Pattern stamp: The pattern stamp tool lets you paint with a pattern. Either choose a preset or define your own pattern using Edit ® Define Pattern and then paint away.
History brush (Chapter 7): The history brush reverts portions of the image to any of a handful of previous states throughout the recent history of the image. To specify the state that you want to revert to, click in the first column of the History palette. It's like an undo brush but way, way better.
Art history brush (Chapter 7): Like the history brush, the art history brush paints with pixels from a previous image state. But with this brush, you get a variety of brush options that create different artistic effects.
zLA Eraser (Chapter 7): Drag with the eraser tool to paint in the background color or erase areas in a layer to reveal the layers below. Alt-drag (Win) or Option-drag (Mac) to switch to the Erase to History mode, which reverts the image to a previous state just as if you were using the history brush.
Background eraser (Chapter 9): The background eraser rubs away the background from an image as you drag along the border between the background and foreground. If you don't wield this tpol carefully, though, you wind up erasing both background and foreground.
Magic eraser (Chapter 9): The magic eraser came from the same gene pool that produced the magic wand. When you click with the magic wand, Photoshop selects a range of similarly colored pixels; click with the magic eraser, and you erase instead of select.
- Gradient (Chapter 6): Drag with this tool to fill a selection with a gradual transition of colors, commonly called a gradient . You can click the gradient icon in the toolbox and select a gradient style from the Options bar.
Paint bucket (Chapter 6): Click with the paint bucket tool to fill a contiguous area of similarly
colored pixels with the foreground color or a predefined pattern.
Blur (Chapter 5): Drag with the blur tool to diffuse the contrast between neighboring pixels, which blurs the focus of the image. You can also Alt-drag (Win) or Option-drag (Mac) to sharpen the image.
A, Sharpen (Chapter 5): Drag with this tool to increase the contrast between pixels, which sharpens the focus. Alt-drag (Win) or Option-drag (Mac) when this tool is active to blur the image.
Smudge (Chapter 5): The smudge tool works just as its name implies; drag with the tool to
smear colors inside the image.
Dodge (Chapter5): Drag with the dodge tool to lighten pixels in the image. Alt-drag (Win) or
Option-drag (Mac) to darken the image.
Burn (Chapter 5): Drag with the burn tool to darken pixels. Press Alt (Win) or Option (Mac) to
temporarily access the dodge tool and lighten pixels.
Sponge (Chapter5): Drag with the sponge tool to decrease the amount of saturation in an image so the colors appear more drab and eventually gray. You can also increase color saturation by changing the Mode setting in the Options bar from Desaturate to Saturate.
Path selection (Chapter 8): Click anywhere inside a path to select the entire path. If you click

inside a path that contains multiple subpaths, Photoshop selects the subpath under the tool cursor. Shift-click to select additional paths or subpaths. You also use this tool and the direct selection tool, described next, to select and manipulate lines and shapes drawn with the shape tools.
Direct selection (Chapter 8): To select and edit a segment in a selected path or shape, click it or drag over it with this tool. Press Shift while using the tool to select additional segments. Or Alt-click (Option-click on the Mac) inside a path or shape to select and edit the entire object.

vector text to your image.
