In the history
of photography, there has never been a time that we can achieve such phenomenal
results in editing as has happened in the digital age. And while there are a myriad of tools that
the computer and internet have made available to us to enhance and change the
images that come from a photo shoot, none can top the popularity and power of
Adobe Photoshop. The program has become
so synonymous with editing and creating effects that the term, “to Photoshop”
has become a verb that means to enhance or alter an image.
We can “Photoshop
in” new outfits, accessories or even people to a shot where it was just not
possible before. So if you want a
picture of you shaking hands with the president, you don’t have to go to Washington to get it,
just “Photoshop” your image into the image of the president and it will look as
real as if you had been there.
can “Photoshop” out things from a picture we don’t want to see there
anymore. So if you have a physical flaw,
that can be removed. You can even remove
a distracting person from the background of the shot. The program is so sophisticated that these
images are possible and you really cannot tell the alteration has been made.
become such a de facto standard for photo processing that if you are setting up
a photography studio or business, a copy of the software is as necessary as
Microsoft word or PowerPoint. The good
thing about this software is that it is readily accessible and a lot of people
know how to use it. So if you feel
insecure about learning yet another computer application, you can probably find
a college student, someone at the high school or maybe the junior high that
knows Photoshop in and out and can help you jump start your use of the software
has not always dominated this genre. The
program was created in 1989 by two brothers, John Knoll and Thomas Knoll. While the brothers developed Photoshop for
custom uses they had at the time, it wasn’t long before the market potential of
this software became evident. So, being smart
entrepreneurs, John and Thomas founded a little company called Adobe and began
operations in 1990.
Adobe has been
a shining example of how to achieve success in the age of the internet. Today few of us who use the internet are not
aware of Adobe. You probably cannot find
a personal computer that uses the internet that does not have a free copy of
the Adobe reader on it to read PDF files.
The PDF format is yet another example of how this little company has
created and then taken over a particular market of online business.
become skilled at using Photoshop, the first thing to do is probably find a
copy to play with. Like most computer
applications, you can probably find a copy on a friend’s computer just to
tinker with it and get a feel for the controls.
Then if your friend is a wizard at Photoshop, let him or her show you
some of the real “wiz-bang” things they can do with Photoshop using the same menus
you were just tinkering with. This little
Saturday afternoon experiment could turn you into a Photoshop addict forever.
After that, you
would do well to download a copy for yourself.
You can get an evaluation version that will give you most of the
features. But you really only need that
if you are not sure if you are going to buy a copy. Since Photoshop dominates this market, you
almost certainly will buy a copy so you might save some frustration and
purchase a licensed copy right away.
Now, you will probably find yourself playing with the software for long
hours just having fun and that’s great.
But don’t overlook the value of taking some organized classes in photo
editing using Adobe Photoshop. These
classes can show you the shortcuts and how to get the most out of the software.
From there on out, your imagination is the only limit to how you will use this tool to make your photographs better for your customers. And you will be able to respond enthusiastically when someone says, “that’s ok, you can just Photoshop that and fix it right up.”
All our lessons in NPLPhotoshop.com are designed to assist you in teaching your students the most powerful features of Photoshop.

Ideas will come easily as your kids immerse themselves in the curriculum you are guiding them through. Each of these lessons is engaging, relevant, and fun.
We are here to help you (novice, expert and everyone in between) find creative and constructive ways to integrate technology into your class.
