She reviews the Welcome (startup) screen where you can access tutorials, webinars, brush packs and other products, plus a gallery of artwork to get you inspired. On the Get Started tab you can choose from a variety of different layouts, including the photo art layout. This layout will load the Photo Art workspace, which includes some important tools like Clone Source and Underpainting tools. The Colors and Layers palette is also essential.
