Adobe Photoshop or just Photoshop, as it is called, is a graphics editor that has been developed by Adobe Systems. Thomas Knoll first created the Photoshop program in 1987. Knoll was still a college student when he came up with the idea of this photo editing software. To spend more time developing his program, he took some time off from school to focus his attention on his program. When this program first came out on the market it was known as ImagePro and was later changed to Photoshop.
The Photoshop program has many exciting features that help you create some wonderful pictures. One of the great things about Photoshop is that documents created by Adobe may be imported or exported into your Photoshop project. This is great when you have started a project on another computer because you can email it to yourself and not have to worry about not being able to open it. This program also has the ability to read and write raster and vector images. This works well when you are importing clipart into your projects.
Adobe Photoshop has changed in recent years. It has been expanded so that it can be sold on an international scale. The language availability is expansive and it does work in twenty-five languages. Special features have been added for Arabic and Hebrew languages. For example Photoshop in Middle Eastern countries comes with special typing settings. Users are now able to type Arabic and Hindi digits and there is a ligature option. Also when using Photoshop in Middle Eastern countries, the program will allow you to type from right to left instead of left to right, whether you type single characters or full paragraphs.
The key to using Adobe Photoshop is to read as much as you can and to experiment with the program. Playing around with the various features will give you a chance to see what you can do. It is always a good idea to read the owner’s manual as well. There is a great deal of information inside the manual that helps you get started. Just like with any other computer program, there is online support and tech help available to you twenty-four hours a day. All you have to do is contact a customer service representative and this person will help you in any way possible.
