Adobe Photoshop Basics

As a graphic designer myself, it is one of the most important factors to have the best software possible to facilitate the creation of master pieces.

For many years, Adobe has provided its users with a variety of tools for different purposes such as designing and programming. 

In this post, we will be discussing the basics about one of the best known tools that Adobe has introduced to the world many years ago, and that is the well known Photoshop.

Users of all types have either heard of Photoshop or have used it in some ways. 

The main objective of the software is to allow a user to apply modifications to an image based on the needs.

The basic interface of the software allows a user to choose an image locally or even from the cloud for further modifications. 

Photoshop allows a user to quickly apply basic modifications to an image such as: resize, crop, reformat, and more. However, we need to understand that the options do not end here. Photoshop is a very powerful tool that allows to apply extensive modifications to an image such as removing background, applying color corrections, and more.

The tool also easily allows a user to undo any step during image modification. This is useful especially when mistakes are made, and the original part is needed to be retrieved again. However, it is always suggested to keep a duplicate copy of the original file in case if things don’t go right such as a sudden power failure where it could cause to lose the main file.

Users are also capable of modification various sections of the software based on needs such as the amount of undo steps that is possible in the tool. 

In further tutorials, we will be discussing the basics about various elements/tools available in Photoshop. This allows you to gradually gain a better understanding of the software and applying more comprehensive image modifications.
