Intro To Photoshop

Photoshop is  an important tool for all digital photographers and photojournalists. It can sharpen pictures, giving every photo an overall sense of professionalism, even if, originally, the lighting wasn’t perfect, or the photo was crooked. Photoshop, if used responsibly, i.e. not modifying the  content of the photos, is an essential device for any modern journalist.

Here are some examples of what can be done with photoshop:
