Photoshop is an image editing software developed by Adobe Systems.
The program was created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll and launched in February 1990. It is now available in 26 languages worldwide.
Written in C++, the software is designed to run on Windows operating system and Apple’s OS X.
As part of the Photoshop portfolio of tools Adobe launched Photoshop Touch, built specifically to be used in touch screen devices such as tablets and mobile phones, or interactive worktop stations.
What tools does it offer?
Tools in Photoshop include pens, shapes, measurements, navigation tools, selection tools, video editing, 3D capabilities, mobile integration, camera raw, 3D printing tools, and colour replacement tools.
The amount of design tools available in the software is one of its biggest assets when compared to other providers.
One of the downsides to Photoshop is its complexity when new users join in, however, there are plenty of online courses out there that offer training to help users get to grips with the technology.
