Photoshop Crib Sheet

Am just learning Photoshop (real Photoshop - CS 8.0, to be precise ). I still fear it, but am getting the hang. This page is a kind of aide-memoire for things i like to do.

It is my increasingly firmly held conclusion that Photoshop is a mistake. A program that's about editing bitmaps is fine, but as soon as you start talking about composing bitmaps, as Photoshop does, you're in the realm of a draw program, and the correct way to do this is to be object-oriented from the ground up. Photoshop tries to tack this sort of functionality onto a bitmap editor, and so fails.
