Adobe Photoshop is hands down, the most popular program for creating and modifying images for the web and for print.This is true not only because Photoshop is available on a wide array of platforms ranging from Mac to Windows to UNIX, but because after four generations of development, Adobe Photoshop has the most intuitive user interface, the most complete set of tools, and the largest number of reference books around.

So what exactly can you do with Photoshop?

Well, like any image-editing program, you can use Photoshop to “alter” images like photos, downloaded icons, or scanned artwork.

Altering an image includes doing such things as changing the colors within an image, modifying the size and scale of an image, or putting one picture “within” another.
