Adobe Photoshop, or simply Photoshop, is a graphics editing program developed and published by Adobe Systems. It is the current market leader for commercial bitmap and image manipulation software, and is the flagship product of Adobe Systems.
Photoshop is a design program used to manipulate raster (bitmap) images. Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard image manipulation tool used for many tasks, from photo retouching to creating posters. One of the most versatile and powerful programs available to the designer it is essential for a professional finish. Photoshop or Photo manipulation is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception (in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means.
In brief, we can say, to digitally edit or alter a picture or photograph Photoshop is essential now- a- days.
Activities of Photoshop
To describe Photoshop as merely an image editing application does not do this package justice, as it can do far more than that. For example it is almost equally at home helping you design and create entire Web pages and print adverts as it is at enhancing, re-touching or editing photographs and other digital images.
Indeed, its ability to produce almost complete Web pages, complete with all the java necessary to handle button rollovers and image swapping behaviors, makes Photoshop a tool not just for those working in more general media design and print houses, but also one that Web designers can use alongside their HTML editors.
It would be impossible to cover even a fraction of Photoshop's features, which include just about every image editing, enhancing and printing feature you could wish for.
Facilities of Photoshop
Now Photoshop has reached the market with some terrific facilities. You can paint directly on 3D models, wrap 2D images around the 3D shapes. Conversion of gradient maps to 3D objects has become very easy. Adjustment tool lets the user to access every tool nondestructively and to enhance the color for our images.
Masks panel: Mask panel is used for creating and editing the images quickly and lets the users to create the editable pixel and vector based masks and more.
Auto-blending of images : With this tool we can create a single image from a series of shots which have different focal points with this command. Moreover coloring, extending and shading are become very easy with this tool.
Auto-alignment of layers : We can use this layer to create the accurate composites. Moving, rotating and warping the image have become very easy than ever.
Extended depth of field : Different exposure like color, focal point images can be combined with this tool into a single color-corrected image
SketchUp is developed for the conceptual stages of design. SketchUp is powerful yet easy-to-learn 3D software. We think of it as “the pencil of digital design”. This award-winning product combines a simple yet robust tool set that streamlines and simplifies 3D design. SketchUp is used by professionals and consumers alike. It contains a unique interface that allows 3D forms to be created, viewed, and modified quickly and easily. The core of its simplicity is that you draw the edges of the desired model in 3D space, just as you would using a pencil and paper. SketchUp infers your design intent and automatically determines the nature of the lines and fill shapes to create 3D geometry.
The combination between SketchUp & Photoshop
SketchUp already excels at non-photorealistic output, but to push your images even further you can use Photoshop to create some interesting effects. Before going to Photoshop however, you can use SketchUp’s various display modes to output some different styles that can be combined to achieve fast and effective results when you do go to Photoshop.
You can create a model using SketchUp & makes it just realistic using Photoshop. SketchUp helps you create 3D textured model where Photoshop improves it realistically or even artistically. Various kind of advanced tools of Photoshop enable you to produce such models or photos or something like that just what you exactly want.
If we compare SketchUp with pencil or brush by which we create a picture, then Photoshop is the colour which makes a picture just realistic. While SketchUp makes our dreams come truth, Photoshop turns the truth rather better condition which is just beyond our expectation or rather to say Photoshop renovate our dream in real.
Photoshop is the other name of completeness. It alters the ugly or uncomfortable things into beautiful & comfortable one. Briefly, the combination of SketchUp & Photoshop enables us feeling relieved & relaxed.
