Calibration You need to configure your monitor to the best settings for brightness and color. A well-calibrated monitor does a good job of displaying colors; if it’s close to “right”, the monitor profile will only need to note a few small adjustments. To calibrate your monitor, you will need to use the controls on the monitor itself to adjust brightness and color. Refer to the monitor’s user manual if you don’t already know how to do this. ▶ Set the Target Color and Contrast: these values are referred to as the White Point and the Gamma.

Brush panel Yes, photographers have to know how to paint, too. Well, just a little. We use tools that embrace a painting metaphor to mask, retouch, and sometimes to adjust areas of images. Being able to build the right brush tip is a very useful skill, and the means to do so are in this panel. Clone Source panel This panel’s purpose will be better understood when I describe retouching later. But briefly, this panel lets you configure those tools we use in retouching so they can automatically scale and rotate material from one part of an image as it’s used to repair another.

WUO. General While learning Photoshop, some users find it useful to have the application take notes of what they do. If this seems handy, enable the History Log. It’s up to you whether it records your actions into a standalone text file or into the document itself (accessible by using File> File Info… and choosing History). You may be tempted to choose a Detailed history, but be warned that it is deeply detailed. It is also here where Warning Dialogs can be reset. When an annoying message keeps appearing, you may notice a checkbox in its dialog that says Don’t Show Again.
