Photoshop: July 2010 Archives

Screen-shot-2010-07-15-at-2.pngThere is this great Photoshop app for my iPad that I've recently discovered.  Understanding Photoshop.  Can't get much simpler than this.  The digital revolution has made taking photographs these days so different than in the past.  It's so amazing to me how far we've come.  Remember not wanting to "waste" your film back in the day?  Or when you did get your pictures developed, you wished so badly that you could just cut out that goofy person in the background, or wipe away that horrid pimple on your nose?  "It would've made such a beautiful picture" you'd think to yourself, or have you running for the scissors.  That's the beauty of digital today; no worries about how many pictures you're "wasting" or that jerk that might be ruining your shot.  Now we can just delete any pictures we don't want to keep, and crop out anyone or anything we don't want in the image.  I love my digital camera and I never go anywhere without it.  I find myself taking thousands more pictures these days than I ever have in the past.  BUT, if you're also like me and basically use the photo software that comes with your camera or iPhoto to crop and erase blemishes, there is something 10 times better out there, and that is Photoshop.

Photoshop can be intimidating to a lot of people; all those tools, all those layers.  But Photoshop can be your friend.  And what a great way to learn about it just by calling it up on your iPad!  The app is only 99 cents, and includes 17 different training videos and hands-on lessons, interactive quizzes, a quick reference guide, and the ability to interact with the trainer with comments and a Twitter client.   

ps_app_screenshots.pngThe Understanding Photoshop application has video tutorials that cover a variety of tips and tricks that will help you get the best out of Photoshop.  From learning how to manipulate colors in your images to erasing unwanted blemishes and even an entire person from your pictures, these tutorials offer it all.  So whether you're new to Photoshop or even an advanced user, you'll find useful techniques and powerful shortcuts to get your work done faster.
