Figure 3-1 shows a layered image with an optional selection made in the Multiply layer, giving you a way to keep the two areas in separate elements while still maintaining the visible details. Photoshop uses a pixel-by-pixel approach and is primarily aimed at raster images such as those in TIFF, JPEG, or PNG formats. Photoshop features an excellent set of industry-standard tools, which means that when you need a specific effect, you can use the tool with confidence that it provides the results expected from the program. Photoshop makes working with raster images, vectors (see the next chapter), and graphics much simpler, enabling you to create and modify images far more efficiently than you could otherwise. Shooting RAW is still the best way to create a digital image. The one drawback of shooting in RAW format is that it’s not compressed — which can slow down your editing speed if you’re working with large files. However, you can still create images without worrying about the size or quality of the file if you shoot a large number of images — RAW is an excellent file format for making a work of art or for everyday life. **Figure 3-1:** Raster images are great because you can make changes in small detail. Creating a Layer-Based System Photoshop is designed to work with raster images, or pixels, so it uses a layer-based system. These layers allow you to see and manage any changes you make to the image as you make them. Each layer has a specific function, from blending to text and anything in between, all of which you can change later. You may notice that Photoshop’s image files are big, so it’s important that you save as little as possible. Taking a moment to save your file every few minutes, even when you think you don’t have the time, will make a huge difference in the time it takes to save the day. Building a Basic Image in Photoshop To start, select File⇒New to create a new document, as shown in Figure 3-2. From the panel on the left, click the Layers button to open the Layers dialog box, shown in Figure 3-3. **Figure 3-2:** To start a new document, click New. **Figure 3-3:** Set up your layers in the Layers dialog box. In the Layers dialog box, as shown in Figure 3-

The present invention generally relates to word processing and, more particularly, to a system for determining when a document should be passed through a plurality of document processors, such as when the document is waiting to be bound into a book. A typical document production process includes the use of an optical character reading (OCR) device that feeds the text of a document into the document production system. In the typical document production system, the OCR feeds the text into a data conversion system that analyzes the text and creates data representative of the text. In a typical document production system, the data from the data conversion system is fed into a layout system that processes the data into an appropriate layout for the document, including a number of physical cutting and binding operations. The layout system also feeds the data into a binding system that processes and binds the text of the document into a book. A conventional OCR typically includes a serial interface that is directly connected to the data conversion system and the binding system. A problem with the conventional system is that it is very time intensive, particularly when data from a series of documents is fed into the document production system. To handle the time associated with the serial interface, conventional systems employ a single optical scanner that is shared by multiple users, e.g., book binding operators. With a shared scanner, the system will only allow one user at a time to use the scanner. Of course, such time intensive systems require a high degree of cooperation from the user to prevent one user from monopolizing the scanner. Unfortunately, the users often forget to leave the scanner idle, thus leaving the data conversion system idle, waiting to feed data to the data conversion system, until the scanner is free. Thus, during the time when the scanner is idle, there is no processing of the data. The data conversion system is therefore idle while the scanner is idle. In some systems, the data conversion system may stay idle for up to ten minutes or more, after the scanner is free. This is an especially problem if the data conversion system is coupled to a data storage system, such as a computer database. Data storage systems also suffer from high latency due to the sharing of a scanner. More specifically, when a user enters data into the data conversion system, the data is saved to the data storage system. Thereafter, when the user wants to review the data, the data must be retrieved from the data storage system and fed into the data conversion system to permit analysis of the data. Because the OCR cannot be used to analyze data in
