Workspaces in Photoshop CC

Photoshop is an awesome tool for a lot of different things. You can edit photos, edit videos, and you can even create and manipulate 3D. There’s matte painting, digital art and design, too. With all of its capabilities, Photoshop is loaded with all kinds of panels. These panels are essential for controlling every aspect of your work. From adjusting adjustment layers via the Properties Panel, to controlling type, picking swatches and even picking and customizing brushes, each one of these has their own panel. If you’re a diverse designer like me and do all sorts of design work, then you need certain panels for certain jobs, and others, you don’t need at all. It can be a real pain moving all of those panels around and organizing them each time. That’s where workspaces in Photoshop CC come in.

Workspaces in Photoshop CC

Photoshop has a few built-in presets, and they are actually quite handy. If you’re painting, there’s a workspace for that. If you are designing, there’s a workspace for that, as well as 3D and Photography. If you aren’t happy with how any of those workspaces are set up, then you can create your own. This is a huge time saver, because you can just click a button and all of your favorite panels are there. All of the panels you don’t need or don’t normally use aren’t there cluttering up your desktop. In the video below, you’ll see how Workspaces work in Photoshop, and how you can use them to your advantage.
