This tutorial is designed for intermediate to advanced users and assumes that you have at least a fair understanding of each of the programs used.

The Basics – Photoshop Tools Part 1 of 3

One of the most powerful and the leading, industry standard software on image and graphics editing or creation is the Adobe Photoshop, or merely Photoshop. If you’re just starting to learn about Photoshop, you might know some of its tools and basic editing tasks like resizing and cropping but to be able to fully understand and master all of its tools takes a lot of time. That’s the reason why the main purpose of this Photoshop Tutorial is to help you learn the basics of Photoshop (starting with Photoshop tools) for you to get started with it. People tend to skip the basics or the fundamentals and start on learning the advanced Photoshop tutorials which they thought is easier. But they’re wrong. Jacob Gube once said, “If you take the time to learn the basics, you’ll run into less trouble because you understand how things work.”
