Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can arrange your work space in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.


Steps

  1. 1
    Look at the default work space
    .
    It is the default setting for the essentials mode, which is indicated in the top right corner. It uses a tab system. We have two documents open, each in its own tab.

  5. 5
    Click an option to see how it looks
    .
    Remember, we've only got two tabs open, so some of the options are grayed out for us. They would become available if we had more tabs open. We will click "2-up vertical".

  10. 10
    Look at the new work space
    .
    Keep experimenting to see which one suits best. Maybe we prefer horizontal, and it may depend on the style of work we're doing as well. We might prefer vertical tiles, and so on. Having more tabs can also determine how practical each of the work space options is. When we have three documents, four documents, or six documents, it will consolidate in a way that suits the documents that are open.

    Click "Consolidate All to Tabs"
    .
    This takes us back to where we began.
