Photoshop, now up to version 7.0, is the leading professional image-editing program, released by Adobe. Photoshop is useful for both creating and editing images to be used in print or online. Easy to use, but full of high-quality features, Photoshop is the best choice for any image manipulation job. Opening Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Click the “Start” menu and go to the “Programs” folder. You will see an “Adobe” folder with “Photoshop 7.0″ inside; click this icon. Photoshop will initially open with a tool panel and a variety of windows, all of which look incredibly intimidating at first. You can ignore the right-most set of windows for now. First, let’s familiarize ourselves with the main menu. File – create new images, open pre-existing images, print, exit the program, etc. Edit – undo, copy, paste, cut, preferences, basic image manipulation, etc. Image – change the image or canvas size, rotate, adjust brightness & contrast, etc. Layer – Create / delete layers, merge layers together, layer effects, etc. Select – Adjust the selected area of your image Filter – Apply filters and effects to your images View – Zoom in and out of your images Window – Open or close different windows within Photoshop Creating a New Canvas / Image Go to the “File” menu and select “New” (or press Ctrl+N).

Pick a size large enough to work with; you can always “crop” your image later, so it’s better to have too large an area than too small an area. For comparisons sake, your monitor’s total space is probably 1024 x 768. Make your decision, and click “OK.” Your canvas will open as a blank, white window. The top of it will say “Untitled” (until you save it), and will be at 100% (unless it is too large to fit on the screen at once, in which case it may appear at 66.7% or smaller). Opening a Pre-existing Image Go to the “File” menu and select “Open” (or press Ctrl+O). Find the image on your computer that you wish to edit, and click “Open.” Your image will open in a new window within Photoshop.

Here is a break down of all the tools contained on this bar: 1. Marquee Tool – used for selecting areas of an image 2. Move Tool – used for moving an image to a different area of the canvas 3. Lasso Tool – used for selecting areas of an image that may not necessarily be comprised of straight lines 4. Magic Wand Tool – used for auto- selecting large areas of an image that are similar in color 5. Crop Tool – used for reducing the image to a certain area (“crop
