What is Photoshop?
Adobe Photoshop is one of the most powerful image modification programs on the market today. It is widely used throughout the world, and has shown its handiwork to the public through altered photos of famous people, such as President Bush. It is so dominant that when we notice that an image has been altered, we say it has been “Photoshopped.” While this handout offers some very basic tips on using the tools available in Photoshop, more comprehensive guidance can be accessed on the web or in the help menu of your version of Photoshop. The version used for this tutorial is Adobe Photoshop CS.
Photoshop is the leading digital image editing application for the Internet, print, and other new media disciplines. It is embraced by millions of graphic artists, print designers, visual communicators, and regular people like you. It’s likely that nearly every picture you’ve seen (such as posters, book covers, magazine pictures, and brochures) has either been created or edited by Photoshop.
