Adobe Photoshop is graphic design software used for creating logos and digital graphics, working with vector graphics, and manipulating images in digital and print formats. It can remove red-eye, retouch photos, and combine images. It is used by web designers to create website mockups but building a website with it is discouraged. Graphic artists use it to design various items. Trial versions are available.

Adobe® Photoshop® is graphic design software used to create professional logos and digital graphics and to work with vector graphics. It is properly referred to as computer software that enables graphic artists, web designers, and developers to accomplish the creation and manipulation of images in digital and print formats. This computer software can be used to work with images that are only in print format because scanners allow you to turn printed photos and artwork into digital graphic files so they can be manipulated in a variety of ways using Adobe® Photoshop ®.

One of the ways Adobe® Photoshop® can be used to manipulate images is by removing what is known as red eye in photographs. This powerful and versatile software allows even an experienced user to change the background and foreground of a photo. It is used to perform photo retouching to make a person’s image flawless by adjusting tones, lighting and shades and covering up imperfections by printing them with another color or parts of another image. Adobe® Photoshop® provides digital tools that enable a user of this computer software to perform operations that make it appear that someone has been found in a particular scene or geographic area.

The power of Adobe® Photoshop® to manipulate images makes it possible to cut a person’s photo from one scene or background and paste it into another scene with a different background. In fact, it can be used to combine any number of images to form an image limited only by your imagination. Of course, such image editing skills can be used in criminal activities and to create deception. Web designers often use Adobe® Photoshop® to create website mockups that showcase their chosen color scheme and placement of information such as navigation links and advertisements. These templates can then be “cut” into sections needed for building a functional website with this software.

While Adobe® Photoshop® can be used to fully build a website, this use is generally discouraged due to the self-generating code that can be difficult to modify later. Graphic artists who design press signs, flyers, brochures, book covers, business cards, and many other items often with graphics use Adobe® Photoshop® to have complete control over creating the image or images they want. Trial versions of this software are often available for users to use before purchasing.
