Photoshop is the industry standard when it comes to digital editing of photos, illustrations, and art. It is used by Professional Photographers, Designers, Artists, Drawing talents, Illustrators, 3D artists and is indispensable as a toolset because there is no better alternative.
Photoshop can be purchased for around 10 Dollar per month by creating an account on Adobe and is often purchased in combination with other Adobe software such as Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop Sketch or Illustrator.
Photoshop is a grid and layer-based graphical drawing and layout program from Adobe Inc. The first version was launched in 1988 and was developed by the brothers Thomas and John Knol. In the meantime, Photoshop has become the industry standard due to the almost infinite amount of functions and applications.
Photoshop is extremely suitable as a photo editing program but is also used by artists and designers for the layout of logos and the design of flyers. Photoshop is less suitable than for example Illustrator or Indesign for the creation of large documents or magazines.
How do you start with Photoshop?
To learn how to work with Photoshop, you first need to understand what layered working means. You can see layers in Photoshop as transparent sheets that lie on top of each other and of which you can easily change the order. You can also make the layers more or less transparent. In addition, you can edit each layer separately or give a specific effect without affecting the other layers.
How long does it take to learn Photoshop?
Because of the almost infinite number of possibilities and functions in Photoshop, you will never stop learning. And before you know it all, a new version usually comes out with new functions. It is possible to learn to work with Photoshop within 3 to 6 months, with a little bit of guidance and to be able to do most of what you want. If you already have mastered other Adobe packages, this time frame can be a lot less because the menu structure of most Adobe software is kept the same as much as possible.
Often the beginning is the most difficult, but once you understand how the basics work, you quickly discover what else is possible. It is therefore advisable to ask an online Photoshop teacher for guidance or to follow Photoshop webinars for at least the first few weeks. YouTube videos and books can also help you, but this works better as a supplement to online Photoshop lessons or webinars.
What can you do with Photoshop?
There's nothing you can't do graphically in Photoshop. However, other graphical formatting packages are often more convenient for specific layout purposes. Photoshop is originally a photo editing program and has been expanded over the years with new features. Because photo editing was the basis, this is also where the software really excels.
The second thing Photoshop excels in is digital drawing and painting. With Photoshop you can draw and paint just as real as you could with a pencil, pen, paint on a canvas on paper. That's because you use the same kind of techniques in photo editing as in drawing and painting.

There are several ways to learn Photoshop. This can be done through self-study or through various online photoshop courses and lessons. Once you understand the basics, the rest goes very fast.
