How to Simplify Photoshop for a More Efficient Workflow

Photoshop is a behemoth of a program, and while it has a ton of features and functionalities in it, very few photographers ever need all those options. All those extras can make it a bit tedious to navigate through the interface and find what you need. This helpful video tutorial will show you how to simplify Photoshop's interface to make it easier to navigate and to make your workflow more streamlined.

Coming to you from Matt Kloskowski, this great video tutorial will show you how to customize Photoshop's interface to your needs to make it easier to use and more efficient. I will be honest: this is something I have never really considered before, but after watching this video, I realize that I use maybe 15% of Photoshop's interface consistently and maybe another 15% rarely, meaning I could significantly simplify and streamline my workflow. I have done this in my audio-editing applications, and it has made a huge difference. Not only does this make it easier to find whatever I am looking for at the moment, it keeps me more focused on work, as I am not fumbling through a ton of menus all the time. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Kloskowski.

From his default YouTube page, this guy shows mostly landscape oriented videos. I get tired of people giving advise in a generic way just for clicks. Many people I know are freaking scared of the pen tool, but somehow understand its power. In my commercial photography, no tool pen would pretty much mean no regular client. I get why so many people here write that they don't watch the videos.
