If you'll be doing a lot of resizing and scaling in Photoshop, consider changing the Image Interpolation method. Use Bicubic Smoother if you'll be increasing pixel dimensions regularly; select Bicubic Sharper when downsizing. If you work on a monitor set to a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, consider changing the UI (user interface) Font Size to Small. That shrinks palettes and gives you a little more room to work.

If you use Adobe Bridge regularly, mark the check box to launch the program automatically. (I explain how to use Bridge in Chapter 4.) And consider whether you want to automatically save the history log with each file, in a text file, or not at all. (The history log tracks all the changes you make to a file; however, as metadata, it does increase the file size. Read a metadata history log using the FileOFile Info command.)
