Chapter 2. Photoshop Essentials > Photoshop and Graphic Design

Photoshop and Graphic Design

Adobe Photoshop is all about image manipulation—starting with raw photographic material (or even from scratch) and creating something unique. Artists often use Photoshop as a sort of digital brush that can be used for photo-realistic images—images that look real but aren't—or fantastic, surreal digital effects.

For graphic and Web designers, it is even more indispensable. The odd thing is that when Photoshop is handled by a professional, its use goes mostly undetected. Think about every photographic image you encounter in your busy day: in catalogs and glossy magazine ads, on Web sites and book covers. If those images grabbed your attention and enhanced the message, they most likely had work done on them in Photoshop.
