How to Edit Photo in Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop was first launched in 1988 by Adobe Inc. and since then along with other Adobe products, Photoshop has become a stellar photo-editing tool.

With its amazing features and diverse use, there is no doubt that mastering Photoshop in one day is not possible. But starting off with a few basics is not as hard as it sounds.

When I first heard and wanted to learn Photoshop I almost got goosebumps thinking it is a tool that can only be used by masters or genius or artistic people and it is no child’s play. But then I quickly realized that even masters start from the bottom and learning one step at a time can take you a long way.

So here’s a quick tutorial on a few commonly used features with which you can start off your photo-editing journey on Photoshop.

1 – Remove Background
There are many editing tools and each tool can be used for more than one purpose.
But here I will tell you the easiest and cleanest way to remove a Photo Background without a trace using Pen tool.

  • Go to left pane>pen tool
  • Unlock the layer
  • Zoom in the image by pressing CTRL and Plus ( +)
  • Start making a selection using pen tool by connecting pen dots. To complete selection connect the last dot with the first pen dot.
  • After making a selection with the pen tool, right click, a new window will open, press  make a selection and hit enter
  • Open a background image or create your own in another window
