So what exactly can you dowith Photoshop?Well, like any image-editing program,you can use Photoshop to "alter"images like photos, downloaded icons,or scanned artwork </li><li> 5. -Altering an image includes doingsuch things as changing the colourswithin an image, modifying the sizeand scale of an image, or putting onepicture "within" another-Adobe Photoshop you can easily importall of your photos and videos into thesoftware quickly </li><li> 6. -Friendly Interface-High-Tech Coding-This results in a higher-qualityresult when it comes to colourcorrection, resizing, HDR imagingand so on.-Photoshop usually creates the bestproducts for a majority of theprocessing effects. </li><li> 7.

Saving Photoshop Essential FileFormats-.PSD-JPEG (Joint Photographic Expert Group)-most popular and widely used file format forviewing and sharing digital photos. It supports 24-bit colour, which means it can reproduce roughly16.7 million colours, and even the cheapest digitalcameras can capture images as JPEG files. Most highend digital SLR cameras give you the option ofcapturing images in either the JPEG or RAW format. </li><li> 12. -GIF-The GIF file format, which stands forGraphics Interchange Format, has beenaround even longer than JPEG, and its theformat of choice for web graphics.-GIF also allows web designers to createsimple animations-PNG (Portable Network Graphics)- PNG files support up to 48-bit colour, giving usmore than 1 billion possible colours! That maysound impressive, but even JPEG files support morecolours than the human eye can see, so any realworld differences between 24 and 48-bit colour areminimal at best. You can even re-save the same PNGfile multiple times without degrading its quality </li><li> 13. -TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)-TIFF files can be very large, especially whencompared with JPEG files. TIFF is the universallyaccepted standard for images destined forcommercial printing and is compatible with virtuallyall page layout programs like QuarkXPress andInDesign.-EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)-another print industry standard format-PDF(Portable document format) </li><li> 14. -The most important thing to remember is to saveyour working-Photoshop file as an unflattened PSD file to useas your master copy,which will preserve all of your layers, channelsand so on in Photoshops native file format,allowing you to return to your work at any time.From there,-you can save a copy of your image in one of theother six formats depending on where the imageis headed (print, the web, or a multimediaprogram) or which format your printer hasrequested. </li><li> 15. WORKING WITH TYPE IN PHOTOSHOP-A picture is worth a thousand words,yet sometimes, the picture alone maynot be enough-we need to add a word, phrase or caption to animage to help convey a certain message. Or we maybe designing a print or web layout and need text forheadings, banners or buttons. And of course,sometimes we just want to create cool looking texteffects </li><li> 16.
