In the photography of yesterday, the image captured through the camera’s lens was pretty much the final result. To alter the image after taking the photo was a practice known to few and made available to less than that. This is not the case today thanks to digital imaging. Adobe Photoshop in particular has allowed a level of image editing that is basically ‘magic’. Photoshop allows the average user not only the ability to touch up a photo, but the potential to reinvent it. Let’s take a look at some of the most basic features of Photoshop that even those new to digital editing can do.
Got an awful blemish on that photo you want to post on Facebook? Not a problem with Photoshop’s retouching tools, which can render even the most hideous acne invisible with the stroke of a few keys.
Torn or worn photos? Family heirlooms that cannot be replaced? Photoshop can take a scanned photo and retouch tears and scars, water damage and more to make the photograph like new again, even to the point of reinvigorating colors that may have faded over time. This ability is worth the price of Photoshop alone.
You will never have to have a closed eye again! So what if somebody blinked at the wrong time, with Photoshop, you can open their eyes easily.
