Version 7 & CS (1)
Clive R. Haynes FRPS
The settings suggested below are the ones that I used in Version 7 and Photoshop CS (as opposed to 'CS2')and as such may may prove a useful basis and guide for establishing your 'Preferences'.
Please note that the notes below form a basis for Photoshop Version 7 as some of the settings were as Version 6 whilst others were beginning to adopt practices that in time evolved to Version 'CS'. Sorry about that, it's just that with time, references to earlier versions of Photoshop are becoming a little hazy.
|The Preference Settings may be found via: Edit > Preferences|
|Note for earlier versions of Photoshop (V5, V5.5 and 6) the route to 'Preferences is via: File > Preferences.|
|Once available, a list of 'Preferences' is presented. Start at 'General' and work through by clicking 'Next'|
|In each section I only list the boxes I have 'ticked' or the options I have chosen and/or set. If I don't mention it, then I've left it at the default setting. Here and there I'll add the occasional comment.|
Image Interpolation - Bicubic (Better)
History States - 20 ..... You may wish to opt for more 'History States' but remember the more you have the greater the amount of memory occupied for this function.
Other Cursors - Precise

& Scratch Discs
To confirm all above 'Preference' settings - Click 'OK'
To save / restore your 'Preference settings', as from time to time they may be altered, perhaps as a temporary measure, see 'Preferences - Locking' in the Contents list,
