More about Adobe Photoshop

If we consider the licensed version, we can talk about a huge list of possibilities. All the possibilities are there for forming high quality images:

  • using pictures or parts of pictures to design a set of pictures, editing pictures or photos;
  • changing pictures after they are printed, scanned photos in order to get a more decent quality. Color-related defects are also corrected;
  • photo retouching and restoration of old images;
  • complex graphics, including correction and rendering of deep shades one by one (multilayering);
  • working with different volumes and shapes in 3D and 2D formats, modification of existing textures;
  • working through various drawings or sketches;

  • processing image formats of raster and vector pictures within basic variations;
  • instant posting to the Internet or forwarding for printing with a printer.


The program is gradually changing, so its appearance depends entirely on the version used. At the moment, the creators have darkened the main screen, this was done not for greater effect, but so that the user was able to fully concentrate on the task at hand. The image is better seen on a black background.

If this option was inconvenient, it is possible to return to the familiar version, it has a light gray color within the working window. To switch, you need to activate the keys Ctrl+F2, you can also do this through the tab on the editing, and then you need the item installation and interface.

All the main elements are located in the upper area - the control panel. It is divided into three areas. The left part provides the following:
