Roles : Lead Product Designer
The Challenge
The problem as stated is Photoshop can do so many things... the toolbar is pretty unwieldy. Can we set it to a more simpler state for new users and a more complete state for power users. 
The Solution
Allow users and educators and the Photoshop team to simplify the toolbar in Photoshop and save that customized toolbar with settings across sessions.
Test Driven Design Prompt
Any user should be able to create their own toolbar without any instruction. 
Generative Explorations
Initial Drawings not far off from the final design in this case.
Live Demo
Show only the tools you want. So great if you're a teacher. Or if you're completely type-a and can't stand stuff in your toolbar that never gets used.
