How much do you know?

Do you know how much you know about Photoshop? Sometimes we don’t know our strengths (or weaknesses) until we are tested. When we use Photoshop, a lot happens in the comfort of our own home or workspace, and we only use what we know. But there are SO MANY features in the program, and learning about them helps discover more methods (and often easier ways) to edit your photos. To help you out, I put together a Photoshop quiz to give you a head start.

Photoshop is a BIG program

I’ve been using Photoshop for over 25 years and still learn new tricks and techniques. The beauty of the program is that you don’t need to understand all of it to create successful photographs. Once you grasp the basics — such as layers, masks, and adjustments — you already know around 80% of what you need to do for most effects. And, the more you learn, the easier it is to add even more tools to your inventory to play with.

Test yourself with a Photoshop quiz

If you’d like a little fun, take the quiz below to test your Photoshop knowledge! This is a quiz I put together with many masking and layering concepts in mind, two of the biggest pieces in Photoshop for creating beautifully finished photographs. And, if you’d like to learn even more about Photoshop, take a look at my new course: Layers & Masks.

    For Question 3, I don’t need to hit any modifier key (spacebar) to move the selection. If I press the spacebar, the canvas is moved. While the selection is still active, I can move it wherever I need to. Maybe that’s a Windows thing, I’m working on a Mac. Good little brush-up quiz, though.

      That’s interesting. I wonder if your keyboard shortcuts are modified? I’m on a Mac and the modifier key is required to reposition the selection while it’s active.

    That could very well be, but at this point I have no idea where I would change it. I appreciate the training vids, thanks for those.

      Hi Tim, I assume you are speaking of question 7 (not 3) ;-)
      Your description makes me think you have already made your selection and released the mouse button.
      But in fact the question mentions a selection in progress (before releasing the mouse button), you can adjust the location of the selection by pressing the spacebar, then you can terminate your selection after releasing the space bar.
      Very effective tip !

        The questions are randomized, so the numbers won’t really match up :)
