CS5 & Mac

Can someone help me please? How do I open two images in CS5 on the screen on a mac? I just don't seem to be able to do it as easily as I could on a PC
Thanks

Same as you would on PC, either file open or select your images and right click open with CS5. Just be aware that they don't tile like previous versions. Look for the file names lined up at the top of the image.
Hope this is of help.

Just one more thing. How do you drag and drop an image onto a blank canvas if you can't have 2 open along side each other?

Click
Window > Arrange > Tile

That's on PC. Not sure if the Mac works the same.

This will tile the windows on screen so you can see them both. Not as convenient as the older versions, but I haven't found another way yet. Mind you, I have only had CS5 for a few days.

"How do you drag and drop an image onto a blank canvas"

open your blank canvas ( it will go next to the open image you already have)

clik & hold on the image you want to copy & drag it away from the other image both should now be available to view........ then as you would before!.

as with most things in photoshop theres 101 ways to do everything........... you should also be able to copy & paste from one t' other!

that would be:

select all (control & A)

copy (contol C)

paste (control V)

good luck.
