  1. 1. Crossing Over Into Photoshop<br />Adobe Photoshop Tutorials<br />
  2. 2. The Tool Bar<br />The tool bar in Photoshop is very similar to that in Illustrator, but the tools work differently for RASTER graphics.<br />Below is a link to a series of video tutorials for each tool on the toolbar. Please refer to this useful resource when you find yourself unsure of what to do with a tool.<br />http://simplephotoshop.com/photoshop_tools/index.htm<br />
  3. 3. The Critical Tools 1/2<br />MOVE tool:<br />Use this tool to move your layer around the artboard<br />MARQUIS tool:<br />Use this tool to select an area using a rectangular or elliptical shape<br />LASSO tool:<br />Use this tool to select an area using a rectangular or elliptical shape<br />MAGIC WAND tool:<br />Use this tool to select an area that is similar in color/ value<br />BRUSH tool:<br />Use this tool to add pixels to an area (just like a paintbrush) <br />ERASER tool:<br />Use this tool to eliminate pixels in an area (just like an eraser)<br />
  4. 4. The Critical Tools 2/2<br />PAINT BUCKET tool:<br />Use this tool FILL an area with color<br />PEN tool:<br />Use this tool to create a path<br />TEXT tool:<br />Use this tool to insert text<br />EYE DROPPER tool:<br />Use this tool to select a color from an existing file<br />HAND tool:<br />Use this tool to move your image around when zoomed in<br />MAGNIFYING GLASS:<br />Use this tool to zoom in and out<br />
  5. 5. About Raster Images<br />Raster files differ from vector files in a number of ways, but the following are the key differences. <br />Continuous tone<br />Raster graphics blend color and value through a series of pixels based on the resolution set out by the designer. Basically, each image represents a series of square-based dots that make up your final product. <br />
  6. 6. Resolution<br />Pixels per inch (PPI) are a measurement for digital devices, all of which display images through a series of pixels. HD Televisions, for example, are high resolution because of the number of pixels used to define the images on the screen. <br />Dots per inch (DPI) are a measurement for print devices, most of which print images through a series of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black dots. <br />Basically, the more dots or pixels an image has before you manipulate it, the larger the file. <br />It is impossible to improve the resolution of an image beyond it’s original format<br />
  7. 7. Resolution in Action<br />At 72 ppi resolution this image starts to lose sharp, crisp detail and appears fuzzy.<br />At 300 ppi resolution this image is sharp and detailed.<br />
  8. 8. Pixilation<br />Raster files differ from vector files in a number of ways, but the following are the key differences. <br />What you see is usually what you get<br />Unlike vector graphics, raster graphics cannot be enlarged without compromising image quality. <br />. <br />
  9. 9. Go Raster!<br />Raster files differ from vector files in a number of ways, but the following are the key differences. <br />When is raster better then vector?<br />It’s difficult to create photorealistic images, like a natural-looking face with all its shades and contours, using vector art. <br />. <br />Although both images work graphically, raster graphics allow for more realistic transitions<br />
