Photoshop is the best and most powerful image editor on the market. It has the tools to take a regular photograph and transform it into a work of art. Photoshop was the first editing software to work with layers which makes it much easier to work on large projects without worrying that any change might affect a different segment of the project.
There’s a whole host of tools that include changing backgrounds, adjusting facial features, creating 3D images, video editing, and much more. There is a learning curve to get the most out of most of the tools and features, but Adobe has an extensive collection of guides to help get the most of each tool.
Photoshop is a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud collection of apps, and therefore, it can seamlessly integrate with the other products, to allow you to combine multiple types of images, videos, and audio clips into your work.
Photoshop is a layer-based editing program. What this means is that for each action you take, a new layer is created. This makes it easier to edit the image and ensures that even if you make a mistake, it won’t ruin the entire project.
The program comes packed with tools that can adjust color tones, add texture, filters, text, hundreds of fonts, magic wands — the list just goes on and on.
There is no point in getting into a “how to use Photoshop” tutorial in this post, as there are entire books written on the subject. I will say that, for most questions you might have, YouTube will have some helpful videos that will help with basic editing and photo touch-ups.
