A Basic Adobe Photoshop CS5 Tutorial

Author: David Peters

Adobe Photoshop CS5 has some great new functions, which make this latest version of the Photoshop software a real must. Check out just what can be learned by following professionally made step-by-step video tutorials for Adobe Photoshop CS5 as explained in this article.

Adobe Photoshop CS5 has a GREAT NEW Feature called Edge Detection that will finally allow you to quickly make selections of images with both hard and soft edges. Adobe Photoshop CS5 has an amazing added feature called Edge Detection that will finally let you quickly make selections of images with both hard and soft edges. Discover how easy and fast you can composite two images together in Adobe Photoshop CS5, even if there is hair to deal with.

Understanding Photoshop can be a daunting task especially when facing the program's lack of simple tutorials and somewhat unintuitive interface. Set aside any worries though as the basics of Photoshop are easy to understand.

Upon first inspection you will see that Photoshop CS5 is basically made up of four areas: the menu bar, at the top, the toolbar just below it, the toolbox on the left and the palettes on the right. The different modes and options you can choose are located in the menu bar and toolbox which always stay the same. The toolbar will change with the context.

An updated status of your image is provided by the palettes. This includes a history of all of the actions and changes you have made along with a thumbnail image of the current results.

To demonstrate the way the interface changes as you use it, try selecting the type tool from the toolbox (the one that looks like a capital T). You will see straight away that the toolbar changes entirely to allow you to set font name, font size and so on.

Now notice the updates in your palettes. The type tool modification will be added to your history in the history palette, and a new layer will be generated for your text and displayed in the layers palette.

Whatever you're trying to do in Photoshop CS5, then, the chances are that your starting point will be either the toolbox or the menus. While the toolbox contains everyday tools such as selecting, filling and making shapes, the menus have more complicated functions like blurring, sharpening, and all the other effects Photoshop CS5 can achieve (mostly to be found under the Filter menu).

You can adjust the settings of tools from the toolbox using the toolbar. When doing this, options from the menu will typically open a dialog box. Should you want to change any actions you have made to your image, simply do so through your palettes. While the palette history is helpful, palettes have other uses also such as changing colors.
