What is Photoshop : learn about photo editing.
So what is Photoshop ? it is a program or a software that allows its different users to edit their photos and images, to remove the unnecessary bits and only keep what they need, to enhance colors, delete imperfections, giving the photos a professional air when a normal camera was used rather than a professional one.
With two or three clicks, the background can be changed, or the lights made dim.
And when dealing with a lot of photos, it helps you organize and choose only the best shots you want to continue on into editing.
Adding to that the fact that it not only allows you to edit but to also create new images of your own. Now that’s a software worth your while !

- Enhance the quality of the image by playing with the brightness and contrast among other tools, you first need to select the photo you’re going to be working on, then go for Adjustments, you’ll find a slider that will allow you to play with the brightness of your selected image, as for contrast well just like the brightness it has a moving slider to either increase or decrease the contrast, as needed.
- Changing the background is a little bit trickier, you see first you need to select the image and then select the image with the background you want, you can adjust the sizes of both images as you wish then hit Enter to lock it in. all you need to do now is grab the Quick Selection tool, run it throughout the image over the parts you want to keep then click on Refine Edge at the top of the screen and there you go.
