Photoshop is an incredibly powerful tool for someone that knows how to use it well. Many people have a difficult time navigating it because they become overwhelmed by all of the features that are included. This is unfortunate because it is really a great system. Learning how to use shortcuts and understanding the basics of it will go a long way in helping you to become more proficient with this exciting program.

The image that you are working with is the first element of four that you need to familiarize yourself with. You can have more than one image open at a time. This allows you to switch between them as you work and use elements from one to enhance the other.

The toolbox is the second part of Photoshop that you need to understand. Located on the left of your computer screen, when you hover your cursor over a tool, you will be shown how that tool functions. Additionally, the keyboard shortcuts can make using this element easier. If you see a small arrow on the bottom right when you hover, it is an indication that additional tools are available if you right click.

You will notice that colors are available for your background and foreground colors at the bottom of your toolbox. There are many different ways to use these options to create stunning visual effects that make your photo work appear more natural. You can use these to create new colors and shading on your photo.

Under that, you will notice that there is a quick mask mode button. This tool allows you to change the screen mode. You can also use the F key to open this part if the system.

Most of the time, you will remain in standard mode. If you switch to full screen, you will get a black border around your photo. There are also tools here to help you modify your photo.

The control panel is the third element of photoshop and it is located at the top of your screen. Depending on what tool you are using, different options open up on the control panel. These work together. You will also have options to save your picture here and to open new ones. The keyboard shortcuts are also listed for your convenience in the right hand column.

Whether you are working the program on a PC or a Macintosh, the options will be the same. The shortcuts using your keyboard will vary but, the experience is the same.

There are other drop down menus that are available for you to use. If you learn the keyboard shortcuts, you will save yourself a great deal of time and effort. There is a filter drop down menu that has in excess of 100 filters that you can choose from. These allow you to make simple alterations that will give your photo an entirely new appearance. Here, you can add effects such as watercolor or different types of lighting. More information about this will be discussed in another blog post for the Photoshop Basics.
