Photoshop uses layers to create seamless, layered images. This enables you to cut, copy, and paste sections of the image together. When you apply a layer mask, you can adjust the way the layer looks.
In this article, you’ll learn how to work in Photoshop as a freelance graphic designer or expert illustrator.
If you’re an amateur or beginner at Photoshop, you can use this tutorial to work with layers to create a complex image.
When you open Photoshop, you’ll see the window shown in Figure A. As you start a new image, you’re prompted to choose whether to open a single-image or multi-image file. If you choose to open a single-image file, you’ll see the window displayed in Figure B. If you open a multi-image file, you’ll see the window shown in Figure C.

Some users may not know what Photoshop is, since it is commonly called Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Camera RAW, or Adobe Photoshop, depending on the platform or the software publisher (even though they are all the same product). There’s a big list of Photoshop alternatives on Wikipedia.
Adobe offers a solution to the Photoshop ‘black box’ problem. Your Photoshop images can be saved as PDF (Portable Document Format), PNG (Portable Network Graphics), PSD (Photoshop Document), TIF (Tagged Image File Format), JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), and JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group).
Adobe Photoshop is used by photographers, graphic designers, web designers, and even both of them. It has several specialized features and tools to edit text, create graphics, and modify images.
Adobe Photoshop is a huge, complex program with many tools. Here’s a list of various options that you need to know to use Photoshop – other than the main Command Line.
This is a small list of Photoshop’s features. We’re going to cover the majority of them.
Why Use Photoshop Elements?
With Photoshop, there is a huge learning curve, and whether you are a Photoshop novice or an expert, you will need to spend much time learning to use the program, or at least to use all of its features.
It is very complex and most of the features are not available unless you pay for the professional version. You can get Photoshop for free by using Photoshop’s website or by downloading and installing Photoshop Elements 11 on Windows.
Adobe Photoshop Elements is a digital photo editor and image editing software. It is a stripped down version of the professional version Photoshop and contains most of the features found in professional versions.
As you can use Photoshop Elements for free, why not use it to save time and money?
A comparison of Photoshop’s features
You may also use Photoshop Elements as a great alternative for graphic designers and web designers who need to create different types of graphics, edit photos, or design websites. It’s as easy as it is good to use.
As of version 11.0, all major Photoshop features are present, from color editing, to canvas scroll, to a range of filters, layers, and much more. It also offers many tools and features that are missing in Photoshop, but which you may need for graphic design or web design.
While it takes
Continuing the Portfolio Series, I present my intuition on Visualizing Data with Bar Graphs for iOS. In this post, I’ll be covering:
Visualizing with a Visualization Data Model
Properly Accessing Data in Memory
Preparing Data for Plotting
Making a Bar Graph
There are many reasons to convert data into graphical form, and often it’s for the benefit of the user. Data can be made more meaningful through interpretation and placement in a visual context. In this post, I’ll be exploring how data can be represented visually through bar graphs.
Data Visualization: The Basics
Data visualization is the application of the scientific methods and techniques of study using graphical techniques that attempt to help those with data. Data visualization can be as simple as an image (picture), or it can be as complex as a multi-layer graph. Regardless, data visualization is the art of human perception through the use of numbers and shapes. The latter often being bar graphs.
There are numerous variables that can affect visualization. While I’ve been creating iOS bar graphs for a while now, I’ve only recently applied myself to the area of data visualization. However, I’m pleased to say that I’ve learned a few things about creating the next generation of “Times of Bar Graphs”. In this post, I’ll cover:
Data Visualization: The Basics
My initial experiments with data visualization were my own creations, as well as my notes on various blogs and resources. These notes are very brief, I have little doubt of their validity. However, I also found myself still wanting more. I wanted to know things like:
How to properly access an array of data
How to prepare data for plotting
Should you add functionality?
Perhaps the most interesting question was about comparing bar graphs, pareto charts, and bar charts. I wanted a good explanation of the differences between these types of data representations. So, I dug deep and found answers.
Visualizing Data: A Visualization Data Model
To graph data, you need a way to access the data. Since a graph is a structured layout of data, you have to know where to begin. One of the most common ways to do this is to use a Data Model. A Data Model is an object for accessing data that has been chosen for your specific application.
An Italian soldier who fought the Nazis in Poland was interviewed after his capture in July 1944. He told the interviewer that he surrendered because he was fed up with the humiliation of being forced to wear the German army’s campaign uniform.
The interview in the Alpine region of the Dolomites is especially poignant because the author of the book (Museo della Resistenza, Udine, 1998) is an Italian who resides in the Italian Alps. He cited the interview in his book.
The ex-prisoner stated that after he was captured the Nazis had him change into the German Army uniform. On July 18, 1944, after two months in captivity he was transported to a POW camp in Germany.
“I had changed into the German uniform for the third time” he stated. “I remember the uniforms I had worn as a soldier, army hat, long pants, boots, and boots. I was dressed in the Italian army uniform and everyone laughed at me.”
He told the German interviewer that he was not happy because “they had taken away all my identity”.
“I said, ‘What an honour’, because I was very proud to wear the Italian Army uniform.”
The ex-prisoner said that he started to realise how the Italians were treated by the Germans. They were looked at as an inferior race.
“I could understand that the Italians had been treated like this before the war. We were looked down on.” He told the Italian interviewer.
“As a soldier, I felt what the Italians were getting treated like. This was not the way that an Italian could be treated.”
“I understood for the first time that the Italians were treated like this in the Nazi state.”
“I put my head down and thought about what they were going to do to the Italians.”
“What happened next was that the Germans put the Italians in jail, and then they treated them like they had been treated in the concentration camps.”
“The Italians were treated as if they were dogs. The Germans treated them like they were dogs and wanted to eat them.”
“It was the end of Italy and I felt Germany would win.”
“There was no longer any Italy.”
“If I had been captured by the
