67. PSE 12 – Palettes in Editor

Here is the power of Photoshop and all its possibilities. You have selected an image in the Organizer, clicked the Editor Icon at the bottom and at the top of this new section you are in the Expert Mode/Tab.

  • To the right of the work space is called the Panel Bin.  Photoshop Elements places the Effects Palette and the Layers Palette there by default.  We are going to add another palette.
  • Above in the menu: Window >  History
  • By clicking on the Undo History you get two things: this puts the palette into the panel on the right, and you now have an easy way to get rid of anything you choose to manipulate in a picture, once we get started “playing” with pictures.  As always in Photoshop, there are more ways to do the same action.  We will explore other ways of “undoing” in later posts.
  • In PSE 12 – once you select Undo History you’ll get a pop up window that has five more tabs of options: Information, Navigator, History, Histogram, Color Swatches, Actions.
  • If you find that you would like to use any other the other tab more frequently than History; go to the menu: Window > (select the tab name you use most) – this puts a check mark in front of that word and it appears at the front of the pop up window as the default.
