Adobe Photoshop - Using Layers

Adobe Photoshop - Layers Make Editing Images Easier



Adobe’s Photoshop is unquestionably one of the most advanced applications for image editing. The application features tools that offer everything under the sun for image editors ranging in skill from beginner through advanced.


I’ve chosen to review some basic features like layers that make life easier for pulling multiple elements into one file to create an original image or editing an image as needed.  For starters, upon opening a blank document, the application lets you choose a size and resolution for your new image.


From file menu, select new.



Select new file dimensions as needed.





To make sure your layer window is viewable, go to “Window” in the navigation and scroll down to layers, select to open and make visible.




You can now open your file(s) and pull mutiple images or selected elements into this file for editing or creating a new image.






When your ready to save a new file off, for the Web for instance, select from File menu, “Save for Web”







Here you are given the option to select final file size and format. Once you’ve selected, hit save and save to wherever you choose. This feature allows you to layer images with various content and art to create a final product for use in print or web based on your needs.



If you don’t own Photoshop or the Adobe Creative Suite and think you would like to, buy it now on campus. As a student you can buy the whole suite for $300-400, I believe. It’s normally $1700.00…incredible deal. Photoshop alone I think is about $100.
