What is PHOTOSHOP????
Photoshop is the leading digital image editing application for the Internet, print, and other new media disciplines. It is embraced by millions of graphic artists, print designers, visual communicators, and regular people like you. It's likely that nearly every picture you've seen (such as posters, book covers, magazine pictures, and brochures) has either been created or edited by Photoshop. The powerful tools used to enhance and edit these pictures are also capable for use in the digital world including the infinite possibilities of the Internet.
It is almost impossible to use or even learn all of Photo shop's tools to their maximum benefit. Photo shop has been around since 1982! That's around 25 years of troubleshooting and advancing software. This workshop will go over the main features of the program so that you will feel confident to explore the remaining features on your own.
As you see in the picture above that Brittany Spears is made to look more attractive by removing her bruises , her thighs are also worked on to make her look slimmer as well as the colour contrast and the background has been also changed to remove shadow which results in dramatic change in the way she appears. Such pictures once altered are then used from Magazine covers, Posters and for Publicity. What we get to see in these magazines in the end is not reality but a glamorised worked on doll by PHOTOSHOP!! and then we wonder how come we don't look that great in pictures and My god, she always stays fit and never bloats and then we also wonder these ppl are on juice and crash diet..and actually the reality is........
