The purpose of this guide is to introduce basic Photoshop features and concepts so that you can use the program effectively. By the time you complete this module, you should be able to use Photoshop to open files and scan images, move around images using navigation tools, understand basic imaging concepts, do basic image editing, and prepare images for print and online presentations.
This guide includes the following sections:
This guide is designed to get you up and running with Adobe Photoshop! It covers version CS5 (Creative Suite 5) of Photoshop.
The user interface is pretty much consistent from one version to another, but if you are using a version other than CS5, some features may work a little differently. I've checked the features against Adobe Photoshop Cloud and these tips still seem useful.
Information includes not only text and numbers, but images as well. The expression "a picture is worth a thousand words" is as true today as ever.
Adobe Photoshop is the industry-standard tool for digital imaging, which makes Photoshop expertise a valuable commodity in the workplace. Learning Photoshop is also a good way to learn imaging concepts. Concepts you learn from working with Photoshop apply to other imaging tools as well (including Photoshop Elements, which has a very similar user interface and features).
The ebooks on this list can be viewed and/or downloaded by different user groups.
