4 Amazing Photoshop Features You Didn’t Know Were Even Possible
We all use software to do things, but what software actually needs to do the job? I’m sure that many of you have used programs such as CorelDraw or Paint Shop Pro to make little graphics, logos, or collages. If you’re like me, you know the importance of a good photo editing program. These programs can make the difference between an OK photo and a great one. If you’ve ever tried to take a decent photograph, then you know how important it is to have a great photo editing program so that you can crop, resize, change the background, add text, and so much more.
There are a number of different types of photo editing programs, and I’d like to talk about some of them now. The most popular photo editing software available today is Adobe Photoshop. If you need to edit a picture, photograph, or any other image, then you should definitely try using Photoshop. Here are some of the major features of Photoshop that make it so popular:
– Image Enhancement: Photoshop has several different image enhancement tools including Parallax, Curves, Corrections, dodging, and so much more. These tools can make your photo look great no matter what you have drawn. This is just one of the many image enhancement features available in Photoshop.
– Raster Image: Photoshop uses the Raster method of computing where there are multiple images with similar dimensions stored in memory at the same time. Each image gets a tick, or pixel, which tell Photoshop where to draw the image. The result is a single image at the end. Each frame in the video plays the same amount of time as each tick of the Raster image. That means everything is played at the same intensity and that creates a beautiful and smooth video.
– Cropping: Cropping is an easy feature in Photoshop and one that I don’t think is always recognized by new Photoshop users. Basically, cropping is removing part or all of a picture to change the size. In the past, Photoshop offered only small sizes for cropping. But, with image enhancement tools like blur, you can crop into any size without losing quality of the image.
– Perspective Control: Perspective control in Photoshop is similar to its clipping tool but offers a lot more features. Its real power is in the masking capabilities of Photoshop, as you can add different filters to create different shapes and patterns.
