Photoshop enables you to create, modify, combine, and optimize digital images. You can then save the images to print, share via e-mail, publish online, or view on a handheld device, such as an iPod.
As its name suggests, Photoshop excels at editing digital photographs. You can use the program to make subtle changes, such as adjusting the color in a digital photo or scanned print, or you can use its elaborate filters to make your snapshots look like abstract art. See Chapter 7 for more on adjusting color and Chapter 10 for more on filters.
