    In the foreground color picker box there are 7 characters in a hexidecial color code combination.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a hexadecimal color code combination consists of 6 characters, not 7. A hexadecimal color code is a six-digit combination of numbers and letters that represents a specific color. The first two digits represent the red component, the next two digits represent the green component, and the last two digits represent the blue component. Therefore, there are only 6 characters in a hexadecimal color code combination.

    A layer that is active must be visible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a layer can be active without being visible. In software such as Adobe Photoshop, for example, you can have multiple layers in a document, but only one layer can be active at a time. The active layer is the one that you are currently working on or making changes to, but it doesn't necessarily mean that it is visible. You can choose to hide or show the active layer as needed.

    The History panel in the software can indeed be found or opened from under the Window main menu. This menu typically contains various options for managing the software's interface, and the History panel is one of the features that can be accessed from there. By selecting the Window menu and locating the History option, users can view and access their past actions or steps performed within the software. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    When you copy/paste an image from the Web into a Photoshop file a new layer is made.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you copy/paste an image from the Web into a Photoshop file, a new layer is made. This is because Photoshop treats the pasted image as a separate element, and creating a new layer allows for better organization and editing flexibility. Each layer in Photoshop can be edited independently, making it easier to make changes to specific elements without affecting the rest of the image. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    A Smart Object Thumbnail on a layer means you can edit that layer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A Smart Object Thumbnail on a layer does not mean that you can edit that layer. Smart Object Thumbnails are small icons that represent the content of a Smart Object layer, which is a layer that contains embedded or linked external files. These Smart Objects can be edited separately from the main document, but the presence of a Smart Object Thumbnail does not grant direct editing capabilities to the layer itself. Therefore, the given statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given answer is that the Rule of Thirds actually uses a 3x3 grid, not a 4x4 grid, for determining where to place the focal point in an image. This grid divides the image into nine equal parts, with four intersecting points that are considered the most visually appealing areas to place the focal point. By placing the subject or point of interest at one of these intersecting points, the composition of the image becomes more balanced and visually engaging.
