PHOTOSHOP BASICS

  1. 1. A seminar on PHOTOSHOP By SAYEEDA HAJIRA
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Photoshop is unlike other common software interfaces which emulate virtual typewriters or graphing paper. Photoshop creates an artist’s virtual studio/darkroom.
  3. 3. WHAT ARE THE USES OF PHOTOSHOP? • Photoshop is the most leading and popular graphic editing software provided by the adobe system and is used to edit different kinds of pictures,photographs,etc. • The software Photoshop was created and designed by Thomas Knoll in 1987 Photoshop have many uses: to color correct your digital images, prepare them for printing or web, design web pages, slice pages(make hyperlinks), you can also create gif animations, work with video, 3D content(Extended version), you can also make brand new images painting or drawing them with drawing tools, many other things.
  4. 4. HOW TO USE PHOTOSHOP? • Photoshop is a learned process, rather than something you can just purchase and instantly know how to use. Playing around with software itself is a start. • Once you have done that, I suggest looking up for some tutorials.
  5. 5. WHY USE THE PHOTOSHOP? • If you are talking about Adobe Photoshop-then you use it to digitally edit your photos. • There are a variety of different effects which I think are endless. • It is fairly easy to use and I like the format over what other programs have to offer. • As well as photo editing, you can just draw photos from scratch. • You have full control over your work because you are working with layers.
  6. 6. WHEN TO USE A PHOTOSHOP? Photoshop is basically used for graphics editing. Color adjustments, transform and edit image. It is a good software which can almost sort out of your many problems with its powerful features
  7. 7. TOOLS OF PHOTOSHOP Pen tool: Photoshop includes a few versions of the pen tool. The pen tool creates precise paths that can be manipulated using anchor points. Measuring and navigation:The eyedropper tool selects a color from an area of the image that is clicked, and samples it for future use. The hand tool navigates an image by moving it in any direction, and the zoom tool enlarges the part of an image that is clicked on, allowing for a closer view. Selection:By using path selection tool, we can select path nodes.
  8. 8. Continued.. Cropping:The crop tool can be used to select a particular area of an image and discard the portions outside of the chosen section. This tool assists in creating a focus point on an image and excluding unnecessary or excess space. Cropping allows enhancement of a photo’s composition while decreasing the file size. The “crop” tool is in the tools palette, which is located on the right side of the document. By placing the cursor over the image, the user can drag the cursor to the desired area.
  9. 9. ADVANTAGES • Photoshop is wonderful • Photoshop is the leading digital image editing application for the internet, print, and other new media disciplines. • The advantages can range anywhere from helping someone improve the quality of a photography. • The more you learn how to use Photoshop, the more it can improve your skills.
  10. 10. DISADVANTAGES • The biggest disadvantage of Photoshop is that it is not designed for beginners. • There are a lot of different tools that do very different things, so it takes time and patience with yourself in order to learn how to use each one correctly. • Photoshop also takes up a large amount of room on your computer as well as RAM memory, but if your willing, you can buy memory for your computer at a local media/electronic store.
  11. 11. CONCLUSION Photoshop are a powerful combination for your digital workflow. It can take you from start to finish, and now you know how to go about doing it. Granted, there are lots of steps to remember, each of which has its own options and settings, but if you commit to an efficient, streamlined workflow, your life will be easier down the road.
