Adobe Photoshop is the most advanced image editor there is, capable of everything from simple retouching, to complex 3D designs and illustrations. The possibilities are endless as it has many features and tools, and fortunately, there are also many tutorials if you want to learn how to use it.

The undisputed leader for its power and versatility

The number of tools in Adobe Photoshop are overwhelming, but with some practice, the results are amazing. Adjusting color levels, alpha channels and masks, artistic filters, textures– the possibilities are only limited by your creativity.

What's more, Adobe Photoshop includes a basic video editor that’s integrated with all the traditional tools. Activate the timeline, drag the clips, and start assembling your masterpiece.

Panels and layers: synonyms of Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is divided in two spaces: the workspace and the panels, where you can choose tools and modify them to your use. With the panels, you can also manage the layers, which are the overlapping levels that make up a photograph and its effects.

The first thing that catches your attention as soon as you open the interface is that it’s now dark gray, which has changed for the first time ever. This is the same color you have in Photoshop Elements, Premiere Pro and After Effects.

The new color and the way the panels are organized help you focus on the image. If it's not your style, go to Preferences and change the color back to the original, or to either of the new two shades.

The best in its category

Adobe Photoshop is not a program for everyone, both for its price and for its steep learning curve. It is, however, an indisputably powerful tool, and photo editors wouldn’t be what they are today without the advances that this program introduces version after version.

If you want the best image editor, no matter the price or how difficult it is to use, Adobe Photoshop is with a doubt the best option.

What's new in the latest version

Smart Objects are more powerful, layers have enhanced features, motion effects with blur, focus mask, and improved Content-aware technology.

Changes

  • Smart Sharpen: All-new Smart Sharpen is the most advanced sharpening technology available today. It analyzes images to maximize clarity and minimize noise and halos, and it lets you fine-tune for high-quality, natural-looking results.
  • Intelligent upsampling. Enlarge a low-res image so it looks great in print, or start with a larger image and blow it up to poster or billboard size. New upsampling preserves detail and sharpness without introducing noise. Extended features included.
  • As part of Creative Cloud, Photoshop gives you all the powerful image and video editing features you've come to expect, and it includes the advanced 3D editing and image analysis tools that were previously in Photoshop Extended.
