Defining Image-Editing Software

Photoshop is an image-editing program. An image-editing program allows you to manipulate graphic images so that they can be reproduced by professional printers using full-color processes. Using windows, various tools, menus, and a variety of techniques, you can modify a Photoshop image by rotating it, resizing it, changing its colors, or adding text to it. You can also use Photoshop to create and open different kinds of file formats, which enables you to create your own images, import them from a digital camera or scanner, or use files (in other formats) purchased from outside sources. Table 1 lists some of the graphics file formats that Photoshop can open and create.


Photoshop files can become quite large. After a file is complete, you might want to flatten it, an irreversible process that combines all layers and reduces the file size.
