Before digital imaging came to life, most photographers, whose desire is to improve their images, need to undergo manual editing inside the so-called “dark room”. But in today’s time of digital imaging, photographers can now modify images the easy way by using post-processing software programs like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and etc..
Most of the editing tools found in Photoshop is similar to the same old dark room arrangement. So, if you’re new to Adobe Photoshop, it is very overwhelming to transform an image digitally. In this article, I’ve listed three Photoshop features, which I find useful and effective, to help you get started in using Photoshop. One of the greatest things about Photoshop is that it allows you to explore and experiment every editing feature in the program.
What’s good in Photoshop is that you can create multiple layers which give us more room to modify and add effects without destructing the original and modified setting of the image. If you’re not satisfied with what you did, you can always delete layers and make a new one all over again. Moreover, you can choose to arrange layers depending on your style.
Similar to Lightroom, Photoshop has its action wherein you can record edited steps for easy editing workload. When dealing with portrait images, a recorded, edited steps of workflow are all you need for portrait actions in photoshop.
Adobe Photoshop’s Adjustment Layers are a great way to make huge changes, modifications and styles to an image without compromising the original setting of the file. With Photoshop, you can simply adjust sliders of saturation, contrast, brightness, exposure and more. So as long as you use Photoshop, you can play with the adjustment layers anytime you want.
Clone Stamp Editing Tool
This is actually the one of the best tools in Photoshop. It allows you to copy the same color and texture of an image to another. With this feature, you can wipe out curved lines, bad color mixtures, dark spots and etc.
