Photoshop- A Multi-Disciplined Designing Toolby Ravi Bhadauria ADMEC Multimedia Institute
Photoshop is like a full designer kit. It is an all-rounder software - web designer, graphic designer, product designer, packaging designer, user interface designer, editor or photographer everyone works on it. This designing tool was developed and published by Adobe Systems for multiple operating systems like Windows and macOS.
Reasons to Acknowledge Photoshop as a Multi-Disciplined
1. Provides Flexibility
Photoshop gives us flexibility to do variety of things like making animations for post-production designers and artists. Logos, frames, wallpapers, flyers, book covers, brochures and packaging design for package designers. Mockup designs, wireframes, rough sketches for web designers. Image editing, colour correction, smoothening - removing blemishes, digital paintings, banners, user interfaces etc to some extent.
2. Exceptional Designs Originator
We can make before-after images, day - night scenes, rendering etc, that means we can convert a picture into a completely different theme, colour scheme and mood.
3. Wide Range of Options
We have a wide range of fonts and brush styles through which we can make posters, scary banners, fire-based themes, matte paintings and many more and we can even download and then import more font styles and brushes from various sites like brusheezy etc to make this software more powerful.
4. Different Pre-sets
There are different pre-sets like web, animation, film-video etc for doing work on these variety of fields. We can use many artboards. Even it has different colour modes (like RGB- stands for Red, Green and Blue and CMYK- stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key means Black) for printing, publishing and web media.
5. Modifiable Settings
We can adjust the settings of the workspace in photoshop according to our liking and interest as if we make the settings or arrangements for our office cabin.
6. An Indispensable Software
Unlike other software (like After Effects for animation artist, Illustrator and InDesign are specifically for graphic designers etc) in the adobe suite, Photoshop is the essential software which is required to every kind of designer.
7. Dominant in Photo Manipulation and Editing
In Photoshop we can add a person to photos. We can add a single person into 10 to 100 different group photos. The challenging part is photo should look real -this is what we called photo manipulation. We can also cut photo of a single or multiple people from group photos that we can place it on individually or on different photographs.
8. Easy to Learn and Comprehend
It is easier to learn this software because of its simple interface though it has wide variety of tools and features. Though it is a raster-based application but still with the help of tools like adaptive angle, warp, transform, guidelines we can almost manage the overview of a design to be made.
9. Support Various File Formats
It has various file formats like. gif, .tiff, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .pdf and many more. It also gives us option to directly import our designs to the portfolio site like behance.
10. Build for Multi Purposes
By using Photoshop one can execute multiple tasks such as designing website landing pages, website designs, templates and sales funnel design. Mostly used by e-commerce, production and other websites. It is also used to design a product with logos, contact us form, social media icons and call to action button, contest, event and survey images or user interfaces design, creative and attractive business cards.
11. Provides 3D Workflow
Photoshop provides a workflow for 3d where you can execute tasks from opening a 3D file scaling, moving, and rotating the object. You can even work with meshes, add lights, create textures or even materials. It is used for making 3D text and shapes in photoshop though it takes some time in rendering but at least we can adjust light, camera, views, bevel and we can work with various other options of 3D.
12. Innovative Designing Tool
We can work according to colour schemes - Photoshop is so smart because with the help of features like curves, level, hue, saturation - it automatically adjusts the shades and colours of the design according to our need and mood.
It gives us power to make our own unique beautiful illustrations, designs and simultaneously give us flexibility to change or edit already made designs into different one according to our thinking, need and purpose. We have a wide variety of tools, features and saving pre-sets with which we can create a different world full of creation and innovation - beautiful designs.
Therefore, in each and every way photoshop is self-sufficient, complete and multi- disciplined designing software.
