30 years ago, the world was introduced to the revolutionary software application Adobe Photoshop. Of course, with all great things, this leading industry standard was not created overnight. The Adobe team has given us one-of-a-kind features and updates that get better and better with every year. In September 1994, Adobe Photoshop 3.0 was released, and the world was introduced to one of the most important Photoshop features ever, layers. Two years later they did it again. In November 1996, Adobe Photoshop 4.0 brought us two more noteworthy features, actions and adjustment layers. For decades now, Photoshop has been the undisputed leader in the photo editing software space. There simply isn’t another software as powerful and dynamic as Photoshop. The software comes with a wide range of tools and integrations making the editing experience a breeze for everyone.
Beginners can take advantage of the tutorials and different projects that are offered in Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. All the applications come with a user-friendly toggle on and off option, just in case you forget those wonderful shortcuts and expanded tool options. Each tool has its own “How to Use” instruction, provided in one sentence for easy understanding for each user.
Working with other Creative Cloud programs is a cinch. It makes your workflow more efficient due to the integrated communication all the programs in suites have with one another. The Creative Cloud platform even allows you to update all your software in one place.
The toolbar in Photoshop offers endless possibilities in every area of design. The range of tools makes it possible to work in any medium. The endless options of pencils, erasers, and filters, and thousands of brushes can be added or removed to make each project have their very own custom features. There is a healing brush tool that works like a paintbrush. Allowing users to simply brush away any imperfections a photo might have. A cloning tool that can stamp any image with an exact copy made from another place of that image.
Getting Hex colors has never been easier with the eyedropper tool. Just click the part of the image you want to inspect and instantly get the color code in any Format you need. The dodge, burn, and sponge tools make you a master at manipulating the light, shadow and saturation of your image. The smudge, sharpen, and blur tool, while creating totally different effects on your photo, have the same retouching approach as the healing brush tool. You literally just paint yourself a new picture. Making composite images isn’t just for the advanced designer anymore. Working with tools like the magic wand and quick selection tool helps to easily and accurately select any object from an image. Saving you time and allowing you to get right to work, on the more important, tediousness and time-consuming edits. There is even a select and mask option that allows you to get right to refining the edges of any selection you make. For pictures with many objects, just use the object selection tool and draw a box around the object you want to be selected.
Photoshop takes manipulating the pixels in your pictures to a whole new level and making mathematical vectors possible for everyone. It has changed the way designers create today. Making the far-fetched possibilities of your imagination a reality.
