Using online Help

For complete information about using palettes, tools, and the application features, you can use online Help. Photoshop Help includes all the same topics and information as in the printed Adobe Photoshop 7.0 User Guide.

Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady each include complete documentation in online Help, plus keyboard shortcuts, full-color galleries of examples, and more detailed information about some procedures.

Online Help is easy to use, because you can look for topics in several ways:

• Scanning a table of contents.

• Searching for keywords.

• Jumping from topic to topic using related topic links.

First you'll try looking for a topic using the Contents screen.

1 Display online Help, choose Help > Photoshop Help (Photoshop) or Help > ImageReady Help (ImageReady).

Note: In Windows, you can also open Photoshop Help by pressing F1.

Your browser opens. The topics for the Photoshop 7.0 online Help system appear in the left frame of your browser window.

4 In the right pane, click Using the toolbox to open that topic.
