An Introduction to Adobe Photoshop

About the Author

After leaving school in Sheffield, UK, Steve worked in the print industry for 10 years before being made redundant. He decided to return to education and completed courses in many subjects including Information Technology, Business and Finance, Sound Engineering and Music Production, Science and a BSc. in Biomedical Science.

After graduating, Steve had several jobs in various scientific fields including immunology and developmental genetics, during which time he developed a keen interest in digital imaging which progressed into an interest in creative Photography.

After his current contract had expired, he undertook a course in Photoshop Artistry at the University of Sheffield. He soon realised that he had already amassed a great deal of knowledge in this field and knew more about image editing and processing than the lecturer. The lecturer asked if Steve would take over in teaching the course as he was leaving for another position. He contacted the University and was given a position as an associate lecturer teaching Photoshop Artistry, Computer Graphics and Advanced Digital Imaging.


An Introduction to Adobe Photoshop

When Photoshop was first introduced back in February of 1990 it caused quite a stir amongst the creative community. For the first time, designers and photographers were able to perform image editing tasks without resorting to high end equipment that cost double the amount. It started a revolution that continues to this day. Over the years there have been many other programs that perform similar functions to Photoshop. However, Adobe’s image editing software has seen off all comers and after 21 years, it is still the industry standard program in its field.

Adobe Photoshop is a massive program and it would take a volume of several thousand pages to cover every parameter of every function. In this publication I aim to provide a tour of the Photoshop user interface and cover some of the basic functions of Adobe Photoshop, in the form of a general overview. This will provide a good foundation to build on as you read the more advanced books in this series on Adobe Photoshop.
