Most people look at Photoshop as a program that has many levels of complexity. They say things such as, “I probably don't use 10% of the program,” or “I just use it to open my digital camera images.” Although it's true that Photoshop has a deep level of complexity, it's also true that the program is easy for the beginner to use. This is one of the features that has made Photoshop so popular: It's easy to jump in and get started and, as your needs grow, the program grows right along with you.
