Question:CS – Creative SuiteAdobe's 2003 "Creative Suite" rebranding led to Adobe Photoshop 8's renaming to Adobe Photoshop CS
with the Extended having extra 3D image creation, motion graphics editing, and advanced image analysis featuresQuestion:2D vs. 3D - 2D and 3D refer to the actual dimensions in a computer's workspace. 2D is 'flat', using the X & Y (horizontal and vertical) axis', the image has only two dimensions and if turned to the side becomes a line. 3D adds the 'Z' dimension. This third dimension allows for rotation and depth. It's essentially the difference between a painting and a sculpture.

On choosing the photo to be cartoonized, choose a clear and sharp photo with the face of the person clearly seen. Blur, out of focus, or under-exposed photo is a bad choice. The larger the resolution of the photo is the better
(To rename a layer, right-click on the name in the Layers Palette and select Layer Properties). We will keep the original photo (the 'original' layer) intact in case something ''wrong' happened in our cartooning activity and need the original picture.
The value for 'Detail' depends on the picture. Most of the time a value of '2' gives the best result
Next, we will apply some shading to give depth to the picture and then colorize it
On the 'Color Picker', pick a creamy brown color. This color will be used for the skin color. (I picked #FAD594 for the skin. You don't need to be too picky here. We can change the color easily later whenever we need to).
(I picked #B24747 for the shirt. You don't need to be too picky here. We can change the color easily later whenever we want to).

• In 1987, Thomas Knoll, a PhD student at the University of Michigan began writing a program on his Macintosh Plus to display grayscale images on a monochrome display
• This program, called Display, caught the attention of his brother John Knoll, an Industrial Light & Magic employee, who recommended Thomas turn it into a fully-fledged image editing program.
Step 1: Preparing the Canvas1. Open the original photo in Adobe Photoshop
2. On the Layers Palette, drag and drop the background layer to the New Layer button to duplicate it. Rename the new layer to original.
3. Lock this layer (click the lock all button ), and turn the visibility of this layer off.
4. Double click the background layer. Click OK.
5. Create a new layer. Rename it into background. We will use it as background layer for our cartoon photo. Fill it with orange using Paint Bucket tool.
6. Move the layer to the bottom. Now our layers will look something like this:
Step 2: Removing Unwanted Areas of the PictureTake the Pen Tool, create a patharound the object (Rihanna for thiscase), load path as selection (ctrl +Enter), inverse the selection (ctrl +shift + i), cut (del), then deselectthe selection (ctrl + D).
Step 3: Creating outline of the picture1. Copy the Layer 0 layer (drag and drop it to the create a new layer button). Rename it to outline.

9. Create a clipping mask between shirt layer and skin layer. Press Ctrl + G while the shirt layer is still selected.
10. Repeat step 4 through step 9 to make layers for the color of lips, eyes, iris, and hair. By the end of this step, our layers will be like this:
11. Now that weve done preparing the layer for each color , we can start coloring each part of the picture. Lets start with the hair. From the Tools Palette, pick Pencil Tool (or press B).
12. On the Layers Palette, select the hair layer.13. Make sure the foreground color is pure white. (Press X if you have to switch foreground and background colors).
14. Start painting the hair. Use a hardbrush with the opacity set to 100%.Make sure that you zoom in whencoloring, so that it is nice and tidy.
