      In your directory

    Correct Answer
    C. In the layers palette
    Explanation
    In Photoshop, the layers palette is where you can organize the order of your images. The layers palette allows you to stack and rearrange different layers of images, text, and other elements in your project. By adjusting the order of the layers in the palette, you can control which elements appear on top of others, helping you to create the desired composition and visual effects in your design.

    To change the size of an object but not distort the image you must press and hold SHIFT while you are in the transform function.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pressing and holding the SHIFT key while in the transform function allows you to change the size of an object without distorting the image. This is because the SHIFT key maintains the aspect ratio of the object, ensuring that it is scaled proportionally in both width and height. Without pressing SHIFT, resizing the object may result in a distorted image where the proportions are not maintained. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    To make a drop shadow, you do not choose the file and fill the original image with black. Instead, you create a duplicate of the image and apply a shadow effect to it, which is then positioned behind the original image. This creates the illusion of a shadow being cast by the original image. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Explanation
    The Elliptical Marquee Tool in Photoshop is used to create oval or circle shapes. It allows the user to select and create a perfect elliptical or circular selection. By dragging the tool on the canvas, the user can define the size and shape of the ellipse or circle. This tool is ideal for creating rounded shapes or cropping images into circular or oval forms. It is the most appropriate tool for achieving the desired result of making an oval or circle shape in Photoshop.

    If you are trying to separate an image from its background and the Magic Wand tool is selecting too many pixels, what adjustment do you have to make?

    • A.

      Adjust the brightness and contrast

    Correct Answer
    B. Adjust the Tolerance
    Explanation
    When using the Magic Wand tool to separate an image from its background, adjusting the tolerance is necessary if the tool is selecting too many pixels. Tolerance determines the range of colors that the tool will select. By decreasing the tolerance, the tool becomes more selective and only picks pixels with similar colors, resulting in a more accurate selection of the desired image.

    To make a triangle or a shape with sharp edges you must use this tool,

    • A.

      Lasso Tool

    • B.

      Rectangular Marquee Tool

    • C.

    • D.

      Shape Tool

    Correct Answer
    C. Polygonal Lasso Tool
    Explanation
    The Polygonal Lasso Tool is the correct answer because it allows you to create a shape with sharp edges by clicking and creating straight line segments. This tool is useful when you need to make precise selections or create polygonal shapes in graphic design or image editing. The other options, such as the Lasso Tool and Rectangular Marquee Tool, do not provide the same level of control and precision for creating shapes with sharp edges. The Shape Tool, on the other hand, is used for creating predefined shapes like rectangles, circles, or polygons, but it may not give the same level of flexibility as the Polygonal Lasso Tool.
