INTRODUCTION

Photoshop is Adobe`s photo editing, image creation and graphic design software. This
software provides many image editing features for raster images as well as vector graphics. It
uses a layer-based editing system that enables image creation and altering with multiple overlays
that support transparency. Layers can also act as masks or filters, altering underlying colors.
Shadows and other effects can be added to the layers. Photoshop actions include automation
features to reduce the need for repetitive tasks. An option known as Photoshop CC (Creative
Cloud) allows users to work on content from any computer.

Photoshop was created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll. Since then, it has become
the main industry standard in raster graphics editing, such that the word "photoshop" has
become a verb as in "to Photoshop an image," "photoshopping" and "photoshop contest", though
Adobe discourages such use. Photoshop has vast support for graphic file formats but also uses its
own PSD and PSB file formats which support all the aforementioned features. In addition to

raster graphics, it has limited abilities to edit or render text, vector graphics (especially
through clipping path), 3D graphics and video. Photoshop's featureset can be expanded
by Photoshop plug-ins, programs developed and distributed independently of Photoshop that can
run inside it and offer new or enhanced features.

Photoshop's naming scheme was initially based on version numbers. However, in


October 2002, following the introduction of Creative Suite branding, each new version of
Photoshop was designated with "CS" plus a number; e.g., the eighth major version of Photoshop
was Photoshop CS and the ninth major version was Photoshop CS2. Photoshop CS3 through
CS6 were also distributed in two different editions: Standard and Extended. In June 2013, with
the introduction of Creative Cloud branding, Photoshop's licensing scheme was changed to that
of software as a service rental model and the "CS" suffixes were replaced with "CC".
Historically, Photoshop was bundled with additional software such as Adobe Image
Ready, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Device Central and Adobe Camera RAW.
ADVANTAGES OF PHOTOSHOP

Many users who haven't experienced Photoshop might wonder why it has an almost cult
following. Photoshop is a powerful image editing program created and maintained by Adobe.
There are a lot of advantages of the Photoshop. The advantages of Photoshop include:

1. Friendly interface vs. control balance.

Although Photoshop has an intimidating layout to new users, it actually is much easier to
work with than competing programs, which can be inconsistent. Each of the windows that
display information or provide function can be opened from a single menu, resized and
relocated for personal preferences. Most importantly, the interface isn't overly simple. Some
programs make a mistake by not providing enough options, which can become frustrating
because it ultimately reduces your productivity. Photoshop strikes a balance by having
several automatic functions, while still providing manual access.

2. High-Tech coding.

The programming experts at Adobe are skilled at reducing a visual element into data that
computers can manipulate. This results in a higher-quality result when it comes to color
correction, resizing, HDR imaging and so on. Programs by less capable companies might
excel in a specific area, but Photoshop usually creates the best products for a majority of the
processing effects.

3. Huge number of features

Photoshop can do nearly anything regarding online media. Although it started out as a
photo processing program, it has evolved to create and edit video, create 3-D images and
facilitate graphic design. Many users don't use a majority of the program simply because they
aren't working in that specific field. Adobe has begun offering simpler products, such as
Photoshop Elements, for users who don't want all the extra features
4. Adobe creative suite

Almost all of the files created by an Adobe product are transferable between the different
programs in its Creative Suite. This means that a graphic can be created in Adobe Illustrator,
added to a photo in Photoshop, sent to Adobe Premiere to add in a video and then sent to
After Effects for post processing without trouble or loss quality. Files created or opened in
other programs might need to be converted to a higher compression file, such as a JPEG,
which reduces the quality of the finished product.

5. Community support.

Because of the popularity of the program, an enormous amount of free education and
support is available online. Many websites specialize in creating tutorials to teach you how to
do specific tasks, such as creating a spaceship or airbrushing. The sheer number of people
using the product ensures you are not the only one with an issue or looking for a specific
technique.
STEPS TO DO A HEADER

1. Create a new file.

2. Edit the height and width.


3. Choose a picture to be edited and choose rectangular marquee tools. Draw the preferred
section that we want.

4. After draw the line, then go to edit-copy and go to layer slide edit and paste.
5. Google and save the preferred image. Click file-open-new picture. Click lasso tool draw the
picture to its line. Copy- paste in our main layer slide.
6. Edit transform-perspective- choose preferred angle. Then set opacity 80. Follow the steps for
another one pictures.
