What Best You Can Do With Photoshop?

Photoshop is one of the most powerful applications around. When it comes to working with photos, there’s almost nothing it can’t do. Even the name “Photoshop” is a byword for image editing.

Since it launched more than 25 years ago, however, Photoshop’s picked up loads of new features that let it do even more. Adobe has developed the Creative Cloud into a suite of overlapping apps. Some of the tools from programs like Illustrator have made their way into Photoshop and vice versa. Photoshop can now do a lot more than just edit photos.

Let’s look at some of the ways you can make use of my favorite program, Photoshop.

1. Editing Photos:

Editing Photos is Photoshop’s original use, it’s in the name after all. Even after a quarter of a century of competition, Photoshop is the most powerful image editor out there. You can modify any pixel in an image pretty much any way you’d like.

  • If you just want to enhance the colors, add some contrast, or crop the image, you can.

  • If you want to do a full magazine style retouch, you can.

  • If you want to make an old photo from your grandparents’ wedding look like it was printed yesterday, you can.

  • If you want to create a photo of you being hit on the head with a hammer by a killer doll, you can.

Basically, if there’s any conceivable way to edit an image, you can do it with Photoshop. It’s used by tens of thousands of people every day. There might be some competitors out there but it’s still the industry standard and no app really beats it on features. Photoshop, first and foremost, is always going to be an image editor.

2. Digital Painting:

Most paintings, cartoons, book covers, and other art that you see online isn’t created with a paintbrush, paints, and a canvas. It might not look like it but most of them are now “painted” using a computer. Photoshop is one of the most popular apps for doing just that.

Digital painting uses technology to emulate old school, brush-in-hand, beret-on-head painting. With a Waccom graphics tablet you can draw or paint without having to use a mouse, or god-forbid, a touchpad. This means you can work with a far more natural tool for the job. When you paint, different colors will combine to create new colors just as you’d expect acrylics or oils to do. You can get the effects of everything from a felt marker to a can of spray paint all while staying within Photoshop. There’s a reason so many artists use it over more analog tools.

Creating digital art has a steeper learning curve than editing photos. Luckily, Christian’s put together this great list of Digital Art courses if you want somewhere to get started.

3. Graphic Design:

Although Adobe also has graphic design specific apps like InDesign and Illustrator in the Creative Cloud, many of their tools have been incorporated into Photoshop as well. For example, the Pen Tool is a staple in almost all Adobe’s apps.

While Photoshop isn’t the best graphic design app out there, it is entirely competent. Something more specialized will make your life easier but there is very little you can’t do. If you’re going to do regular design work, investing time in learning one of the other apps is worth it, but if you just occasionally want to create a Christmas card, design your t-shirt, mock up a quick logo for your business, or even create a business card, Photoshop is perfect.

4. Web Design:

One of the most important steps in web design is creating a mock up: a finished design made in an app like Photoshop. It’s something that amateurs often skip. I know that when I first started designing websites, I jumped straight into coding rather than taking the time to plan out what I wanted the site to really look like. All I had was a rough vision in my head.

As you can imagine, this led to all sorts of problems. Designs took a huge amount of tweaking and going back and forth to make things look right. I’d spend an hour changing something with code that would take 30 seconds in Photoshop.

There’s a reason professional web designers start in Photoshop. It’s far easier to resize objects, move things around the page, and just try ideas out. Once you start working with HTML, one tiny tweak can start breaking all the work you’d done before. Anyone planning to design a website should start in Photoshop.

5. Editing Video:

This last use might be a surprise to you but it’s entirely possible to edit video in Photoshop. You’re not going to cut together a Hollywood blockbuster, or even a short film, but for editing small clips it can be really convenient.

The best thing about editing videos in Photoshop is that you get to use adjustment layers just as if you were editing a photo. If you want to convert a regular video you shot on your iPhone into a high contrast, black and white, film noir style clip, you can do it with just three layers.

If you know how to edit photos but don’t know how to use apps like Premiere Pro and After Effects, Photoshop can be a great alternative. All the tools you’re familiar with are there. Another awesome feature of using Photoshop to edit videos is you can also create GIFs!

6. Whatever You Want:

Photoshop is an incredible app with an awesome array of tools. While it was originally meant for editing photos, it can do a whole lot more. In fact, there’s almost nothing you can’t do. It might be a bit time consuming but if you wanted to create a spreadsheet or write an essay, you could actually do it with Photoshop’s tools.

Barring the DC vs Marvel, which is better, debate; nothing has quite vexed the minds of people as the timeless uncertainty of CorelDraw or Illustrator. When it comes to these two vectors based software most of the graphics community draws a clear line as to which one triumphs the other.

Illustrations are always quoting that theirs is an industry standard while Corellers maintain that just because something is an industry standard it doesn't necessarily mean its the best. Like how Goliath was the standard of strength and courage only to be knocked out by a much smaller and smarter David.

People who say Illustrator is an industry standard, mostly quote what they read online or for that matter, talk about it on an international level. Those with hands-on experience in Indian industries would know that CorelDraw is still used in a lot of firms.

I always maintain that a design software is like a pencil. You hold a pencil and it does what your brain tells it to do. That connection is a make or breaks for a fine artist or calligrapher. The output should be the representation of a visualized input. That being said, I'm sure no one would like to draw with a bad quality pencil if there's a better one around (though I've seen a very good friend just pick up flaky, brittle charcoal sticks and churn out masterpieces).

Corel and Illustrator are both big names. They've been tried and tested and quality wise, both are equally awesome. But like DC, Illustrator seems like it has to carry the weight of humanity around while Corel like Marvel has adapted to what the market needs.

Everything aside, when it comes down to a clash of the Titans and you have to bet your demonetized currencies on a savior, here's my unbiased opinion:

1. If you work is going to be mostly web-based, choose the illustrator. The best part about it is that you can copy paste an illustration straight from Illustrator to Photoshop. It's magic.

If you want to make print stuff, Corel away, as it is extremely friendly when it comes to large-scale type treatment and layouting (here's where InDesign comes into play, but we're strictly talking Illustrator vs Corel).

2. Do you like gradients in your work? Hail Corel.

3. Is your work predominantly illustrations? Choose illustrator, as it is very good for 'pen to paper-paper to digital' conversions.

4. Illustrator, if you're the type of person who likes to take a canvas and Picasso away.

5. Corel, if you like keeping a sketch pad and use different pages to visualize and reach your final masterpiece.

6. User Interface? Corel.

7. Exporting different file formats. They'd say its illustrator, but Corel is as good.

9. Diehard print fan? Corel

10. Color Management? Illustrator.

The list is long and I don't want to keep typing forever, so I'll stop at ten (as general lists go). So in conclusion, both are equally good for all said above as I've done pretty much everything on both and it's just a personal choice as to which glove fits your hand the best.

Deep down, I feel the Indian graphic universe isn't really black and white where Superman or Batman would easily swoop down and tackle a problem, but manifests itself a lot in the grey areas.

That's why I'd bet on Wolverine.

5 top job opportunities for a graphic designer

Work for a design company or start your own studio, the choice is yours. This is the flexibility of being a graphic designer. The career options are plenty.

We list five job profiles that you can take up if you are a graphic designer.

Advertising art director 

Graphic designer

If you are the advertising art director the basically, you’re the big boss. The advertising art director works along with the copywriter(s) to create effective visual communication. But the job is not limited to an ad agency. Film production houses, studios, web design companies, graphic design companies, and even print & publishing houses hire advertising art directors. This means ample job opportunities in the market for trained & skilled graphic designers.

Animator

 Graphic designer

Don’t be surprised. The basic job of an animator is to produce several digitally or hand-drawn images, and even puppets. Over a period of time, it has been noticed that good graphic designers make great animators because they have a sense of visual appeal. This is the most important requirement for an animator as it is their job to put different images in a sequence for impactful & unforgettable story telling. From 2D & 3D model-making to stop-motion and computer-generated animation, with knowledge of graphic design, you can choose to work in any type of animation or even multiple types at a time.

Graphic designer 

 Graphic designer

Well this is what you basically train for. Based on the needs of a client, a graphic designer produces ideas & concepts to create a visual brand. As mentioned before, being a graphic designer allows you to work in different industries including advertising, magazines, computer games, websites, books, and corporate communication.

Illustrator 

 Graphic designer

This is the big picture! You can either choose to be just a graphic designer or become an illustrator. It is the work of an illustrator that takes a story or an idea forward by giving it a visual representation. These can be through drawing, photography or digitally created.

Printmaker

 Graphic designer

In this fast moving digital world, there is still a huge demand for graphic designers in print & publishing. This is best suited for those who are a little more adventurous, and like doing things with their bare hands instead of sitting in front of a computer. Woodcuts & silk-screens are two of the most common techniques used by printmakers to create images. The designs are created by hand, and then transposed onto surfaces, usually with a printing press. You could be creating interesting book jackets for famous authors or unique invites for celebrities. This industry also allows graphic designers to enjoy the best of both worlds. Instead of using traditional methods, you can adopt digital printing process to create great designs making them work closely with computer artists.
