What is Photoshop

Photoshop is a super powerful program for creating and editing images. This program creates amazing drawings.


The program is distributed by Adobe and its full name is Adobe Photoshop. The program itself is more than 20 years old and today has a CS plugin. The latest version is CS6.


Photoshop is a program for creating and processing raster graphics, in other words, a graphic editor. Raster graphics, this is an image that consists of individual pixels of different colours – camera photos, site pictures, game sprites.


By itself, Photoshop is just a collection of tools that come together. But everything is done so carefully and neatly that it creates a real working lab for the artist or designer. There are drawing tools – different brushes and fillers, insertion and text tools, vector graphics … The latest versions even allow you to load 3D models in popular formats created in 3D graphics editors.


The program makes it easy to include various modules developed by third-party developers, which are hundreds. If you do not have the tools in the standard program set, and they are usually enough for any query, you can use some exotic filters, brushes, palettes …
