Managing Design Suite Workspaces in Photoshop CS4


I have spent this weekend learning a bit more about Photoshop CS4 and Dreamweaver CS4 if for no other reason than I am determined to learn how to create websites and blogs that are really nice, and the fact that this education is free makes it even more enticing - especially since I am currently broke.  But that's beside the point.  Anyone who knows me knows that when I get determined to do something, I usually do it.  Thanks to www.Lynda.com, and Adobe TV, I have been watching video after video tutorial on Photoshop CS4 and Dreamweaver CS4.  Some I understand, others I don't.  Sometimes the instructor speaks too fast, and other times the instructor is pretty darn good.  As in the case of the tutorial I have embedded in this post - I was starting to get a sore butt from sitting for hours watching videos when I came across this one.  The information is fairly basic, and the instruction is easy to understand, making this tutorial really good for understanding your workspace within CS4. 

I hope you enjoy this video.  If you don't have CS4 yet, don't fret - neither do I, but I'm going to get that CS4 Web Premium Suite for my birthday in April if it's the last thing I do.  That, and hopefully a large hard drive for storage (and no, my mind is not in the gutter), and maybe a new Mac computer, and a million dollars, and...and...you get the picture.  That's another thing you should know about me - when I have goals, I'm not one to let anything stand in my way of reaching them.  So, I thought I would try to learn as much as I could about the CS4 Web Premium programs and how they work together (especially Photoshop and Dreamweaver) so that I would be able to dig right in and enjoy the new toy when (notice I said "when") I'm able to afford to get it.  Gotta think positive.

Here is a short and basic tutorial that I found very interesting.  If you are using Photoshop CS4 (I'm jealous) Well, not really, but hopefully, this video will be helpful.  I think it is fantastic the way that all the CS4 programs integrate together seamlessly.  Wow!  What a program!
