That does not mean that it is a simple program, everything will depend on the level of depth we want for our project. In the event that we need to carry out simple editing tasks, it will not cost us too much.
And it is that the program itself presents us with a series of predefined tools and functions which greatly automate these photo editing tasks. However, as we get to know the basic tools and deepen them, we will become aware of the complexity of this program.

In addition, each of them has a good collection of customizable settings and options.

How could it be otherwise, the first thing we have to do is locate it to be able to use it in our project. As a general rule, this is a functionality that we should find in the toolbar that comes by default in the program.
This is the one that is located in the left part of the main window and that is placed vertically. Here we should find an icon in the shape of a notebook sheet that refers precisely to the Notes tool. However, this is a program that has a multitude of customizable functions, including the functions that we want to have on the screen. It may be the case that the icon that we mentioned does not appear, but this is something and we solve it quickly. We just have to go to the window menu and mark the notes option that we see in the list that appears.
At that time we will see the icon that interests us appear in the bar previously mentioned to be able to access the function with which we are going to work. It goes without saying that this particular functionality will be of great help to us when adding notes to your images easily and quickly.

However, when working in a more professional and current way with this type of hidden information, it is preferable to use the Notes tool. Some of you may not yet know about this useful functionality of Photoshop.
But now that we are going to talk about it, it is likely that they will use it to be much more interesting. When it comes to editing photos, there are many steps and sessions that we carry out in the same project. Therefore, it will never hurt that we can add comments and ideas of our own in the form of notes that are attached to that image. We tell you all this because this tool will serve us precisely for that. Specifically, it offers us the possibility of adding comments, or instructions to the project in which we are working in the Adobe program.

With this we want to tell you that, if later we are going to print this project with attached notes, either on paper or another file, these will not appear.

In fact, it is called Notes, so this will be where we can see all the contents of the different notes that we are attaching to the project.
