The One-Way Photoshop Game

I've no idea why I thought this might be fun, but here goes.

There are two ways to play:

The first way is to think of a function Photoshop has only one way of performing.

The second way is to double-check first-part suggestions and try to find another way of doing them.

If this generates no interest I'll move it to Salon and say I was kidding

Sounds like not only an interesting game, but an educational one. Since I don't have much of an idea how calculations are used, that's my guess for the function that has only one way of doing.

Ed, I'm still learning what I can do with the Calculations command, but "Apply Image" will do similar blending with some differences as to which channels they can address -- at least in some versions of PShop. I can blend different single channels together in Calculations, but it appears that Apply Image lets me blend a single channel with the COMPOSITE channels of an image. (Warning -- this is not necessarily accurate, it's just what I know about today)

Ok, it is my belief that PS has numerous ways of doing every task available to it and then some so here is my only idea in this game that can't be refuted in some way. Or at least none that I can think of.....

You can't do anything in Photoshop without first turning it on. There's only one way to do that. You must click on it first.

Yahoo!! I win Do I get a prize?

Except that deb has overlooked the fact that Photoshop can be started by adding it to the startup task list in Windows. Now you do not even have to click.

DJ, this might be a Mac thing, but I don't have to click on PhotoShop to use it. I can drag an image file to the PhotoShop icon and it will open up. Or I can double click on an image file and the Mac operating system knows to open PhotoShop.

I think you can do the same thing in some versions of Windows...

.... so do I get a prize??

Sorry DJ

Here's my contribution: You can only create the "File Info" note by choosing File >> File Info

I'm putting on my body armor now
