3 1. GETTING STARTED 1. Begin by opening Adobe Photoshop CS5. On a PC, click Start > Programs > Adobe > Photoshop CS5, or click on the shortcut on the desktop. On a Mac, click Macintosh HD > Applications > Adobe Photoshop CS5 > Photoshop CS5 shown in Figure 1, or click the icon in the Dock. Figure 1. Navigation to Photoshop CS5 on a Mac Setting up the document Setting up your document correctly from the start will make your job much easier as you work through your project. This will require some advanced planning. For example, if your final output will be a brochure, you may need to set up your document to be horizontal and double-sided. To create a new document, click File > New. This will open the Document Setup dialog box (Figure 2).
4 Figure 2. Document Setup dialog box Here you will be able to name your file, set up the correct page size, and orientation for your document. Options include, but are not limited to: Page Size and Orientation Change the page size by typing in new values for width and height. Page size represents the final size you want after bleeds or trimming other marks outside the page. In the Preset dropdown menu you can find such common sizes as letter, legal, tabloid, etc. Typing in exact values for Height and Width gives you more control over the size and orientation of your page. Resolution Resolution is the number of pixels on a printed area of an image. The higher the resolution, the more pixels there are on the page, the better the quality of the image. However, high resolution increases the size of the file. The standard recommended resolution for printed images is , for Web im ages it is 72. Color Mode Choose a color mode that will best fit your project. For example, when making a graphic for a web site choose RGB. When making an image for print choose CMYK. Background Contents Choose the background: white, color or transparent. When you have entered all of your document settings click Ok. Opening an image from a disk If the image you have is saved on a disk, select File > Open, and then navigate to the disk drive where your image is saved. Choose the image file and click Open. At this point, you may want to save your image under a different name so that you can always have the original to fall back on in case of a mistake. To save your file, select File > Save As and type in the new name of the file in the dialogue box..
5 2. Interface Layout Figure 3. This is the layout of Adobe Photoshop interface. Menu Bar If you look at the top of the screen you will see the Menu bar which contains all the main functions of Photoshop, such as File, Edit, Image, Layer, Select, Filter, Analysis, 3D, View, Window, and Help. Toolbar Most of the major tools are located in the Toolbar for easy access. The Image The image will appear in its own window once you open a file. Image Name The name of any image that you open will be at the top of the image window as shown above. Palettes Palettes contain functions that help you monitor and modify images. By default, palettes are stacked together in groups. These are the palettes that are usually visible: Color, Adjustments and Layers. If none of the palettes are visible, go to Window in the Menu bar and choose the palettes you need.
6 3. Palettes Below is the description of the most commonly used palettes in Adobe Photoshop CS5. Palettes used for more advanced image editing will be covered in the Adobe Photoshop CS5 Tutorial -Intermediate. Color, Swatches, Style The Color palette (Figure 4) displays the current foreground and background colors and RGB values for these colors. You can use the sliders to change the foreground and background colors in different color modes. You can also choose a color from the spectrum of colors displayed in the color ramp at the bottom of the palette. Figure 4. Color palette In the Swatches palette (Figure 5) you can choose a foreground or background color and add acustomized color to the library. Figure 5. Swatches palette The Styles palette (Figure 6) allows you to view, select, and apply preset layer styles. By default, a preset style replaces the current layer style. You can use the styles in the palette or add your own using the Create New Style icon. Figure 6. Styles palette
7 History The History palette (Figure 7) stores and displays each action performed allowing you jump to any recent stage of the image alteration. The alterations should be created during the current working session; after saving or closing the document the History palette clears all the contents. Each time you apply a change to an image, the new state of that image is added to the palette. It is important to know that once you click on any of the previous stages, all the changes that were made after it will be lost. Adjustments Figure 7. History palette The Adjustment layers palette give you the ability to apply an effect to a group of layers in Photoshop, and then you can edit that effect later, while preserving the original layers. Figure 8. Adjustments palette
8 Layers Layers let you organize your work into distinct levels that can be edited and viewed as individual units. Every Photoshop CS5 document contains at least one layer. Creating multiple layers lets you easily control how your artwork is printed, displayed, and edited. You will use the Layers palette (Figure 6) often while creating a document, so it is crucial to understand what it does and how to use it. A) Layer Visibility -The eye shows that the selected layer is visible. Click on or off to see or to hide a layer. B) Layer Locking Options -Click the checkered square icon to lock Transparency; click the brush icon to lock the Image; click the arrow icon to lock the Position; click the lock icon to lock all options. C) Layer Blending Mode -Defines how the layer s pixels blend with underlying pixels in the image. By choosing a particular blending mode from the dropdown menu you can create a variety of special effects. D) Fill -By typing in a value or dragging the slider you can specify the transparency. Layers Palette color of the image or object. E) Opacity -By typing in a value or dragging a slider you can specify the transparency of the entire layer. Figure 9. Layer palette
9 F) Layer Lock -The icon shows when the layer is locked and disappears when it is unlocked. Double-click the icon to unlock the layer. G) Layer Options Menu -Click the black triangle to see the following options: New Layer, Duplicate Layer, Delete Layer, Layer Properties, etc. Some of the options are presented as icons at the bottom of the Layers palette. H) Link Layers Can be used to link layers together. I) Layer Styles -If a layer has a style, an F icon shows at the bottom of the Layers palette. Click the little black triangle to see style options. J) Layer Mask -A grayscale image, with parts painted in black hidden, parts painted in white showing, and parts painted in gray shades showing in various levels of transparency. K) Layer Set -This option helps to organize images with multiple layers. Click the icon to create a folder for several layers. L) Create New Fill or Adjustment Layer -Have the same opacity and blending mode options as image layers and can be rearranged, deleted, hidden and duplicated in the same manner as image layers. Click the icon and select an option to create a new fill or adjustment layer. M) Create New Layer -Click this icon to create a new layer. N) Delete Layer -To delete a layer, select a layer in the Layers palette and drag it to the trash can icon; or, select a layer and click the icon.
10 4. Toolbox If you used other Adobe products, such as Illustrator or InDesign, you should be familiar with the toolbox in Adobe Photoshop CS5 as it shares some of the tools from these applications. If you are a new user of Adobe products, you should keep in mind that you might not need to use all of the tools. In this tutorial, only the basic tools will be discussed in depth. Some tools in the toolbar have additional hidden tools. These tools have small black triangles in the right-hand corner.

Basic Image Editing Now that you know how to find your way around in the Adobe Photoshop CS5 interface and are familiar with the most common commands, palletes, and tools, you can start doing some basic image editing. In the next few chapters of this tutorial you will learn how to crop, resize, correct, and sharp/blur your images.
15 11. Cropping Cropping is one of the most basic editing techniques that can improve your images. Cropping helps to bring out the most important features in your image and focus the viewers attention on these features. Cropping also allows you to make your image a standard photo size. There are several ways to crop images in Adobe Photoshop: 1. Cropping with the Crop Tool 2. Cropping to a specific size 3. Cropping with the Marquee Tool Cropping with the Crop Tool The Crop Tool allows you to make a precise selection of an image you wish to edit. To crop with the Crop Tool, follow these steps: 1. Open the image you wish to crop (see Getting Started for detailed instructions). 2. Select the Crop Tool from the Toolbox (see Selection Tools for location and description). 3. Click on your image once and drag the mouse out to make a cropping border (See Figure 11). Figure 11. Cropping border
16 4. Resize the border by dragging the squares at the sides and corners till you are satisfied with the way your image looks. 5. Once you are completely satisfied with your cropped image, press Enter. Note: You can also rotate your cropping border. Move the cursor outside the border, you will see how it turns into a double-headed arrow (Figure 12). Drag the arrows in the directions you wish to rotate your selection. Figure 12. Rotating the cropping border Cropping to a specific size If you wish to print your digital photos or other images on standard size photo paper, you will have to crop your images to a specific size, such as 8x10. To crop an image to a specific size, do the following: 1. Open the image you wish to crop. 2. Select the Crop Tool from the Toolbox. 3. In the Options bar, specify the values for Width and Height (Figure 13). Figure 13. Crop Tool Options bar 4. Click in your image and drag the cropping border. Notice that the border is con strained -you cannot make it wider or longer than the specified values (Figure 14). For example, if you entered 8 for Width and 10 for Height, whatever size you make the border, the area within it will fit on an 8x10 photo.
17 Figure 14. Cropping to a specific size 5. Once you are completely satisfied with your cropped image, press Enter. Cropping with the Marquee Tool If you are in a hurry and need just a simple crop, you can use the Marquee Tool and a menu command. To crop with the Marquee Tool, follow the steps below: 1. Open the image you wish to crop. 2. Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool from the Toolbox (see Selection Tools). 3. Click and drag the mouse to draw a marquee around the area you wish to crop (Figure 15).
18 Figure 15. Drawing a marquee 4. In the main menu, go to Image > Crop (Figure 16). The image will be immediately cropped. Figure 16. Image > Crop
19 Resizing in Photoshop can help you print your images in standard photo sizes, resize and preserve the high quality of digital photos, and enlarge small images to a poster size. Resizing to a specific size 12. Resizing To resize your image to a preset size, follow the steps below: 1. In the main menu, go to File > New. 2. In the New dialog box, click on the Preset dropdown menu. You will see several preset sizes, such as 2x3, 4x6 and 5x7 with the preset resolution of 300 ppi (Figure 17). 3. Choose the size that you wish and click OK. Figure 17. Preset size in the New dialog box Note: All the preset sizes are in portrait orientation. If you wish to resize an image with the landscape orientation, you need to create your own preset. To create your own size, do the following: 1. Type in the values for Width and Height, for example 7x5. 2. Type in your desired resolution (150 ppi for high quality prints, and 72 ppi is good for web images). 3. Click the Save Preset button
20 Resizing digital photos Digital photos usually have large dimensions but low resolution, 72 ppi, which effects their quality when their size is decreased or increased. When printed, the photos with the changed size will look pixilated. To resize the digital photos without loosing the quality, follow these steps: 1. Open the digital photo you wish to resize. 2. In the main menu, go to View > Rulers. You will see the dimension of your photo (Figure 18). Figure 18. Dimensions of a digital photo 3. In the main menu, go to Image > Image Size. 4. In the Image Size dialog box, check the Resample Image box off (Figure 19). Type in your desired resolution (anything between 150 and 300 ppi). The photo is now x inches. Figure 19. Changing resolution
21 Enlarging If you want to make your digital photo into a poster size image, you can do it in the Image Size dialog box. However, just increasing the dimensions will make the image appear blurry and pixilated. To enlarge the image without loosing the quality, follow these steps: 1. Open the digital image you wish to enlarge. 2. In the main menu, go to Image > Image Size. 3. In the Image Size dialog box, make sure the Resample Image box is checked off and choose Bicubic Smoother from the dropdown box (Figure 20). Figure 20. Increasing the size by 10 percent 4. Change the Document Size measurements to Percent. Type in 110; this will in crease the size of the image by 10 percent (Figure 20). 5. Continue enlarging by 10 percent till you are satisfied with the size.
22 Digital cameras tend to cause various problems, such as red eye or hot spots, if you use flash, or underexposure, if you don t. In Photoshop, you can correct these problems, as well as adjust the overall color of your digital photo. Red Eye Removal 13. Correcting The digital camera flash is located right above the lens, which causes the red-eye ; however, you can fix your photos easily in Photoshop. To remove the red eye, follow the steps below: 1. Open a photo you wish to correct. 2. Select the Zoom Tool from the Toolbox. Click and drag a rectangle around the eye (Figure 21). Figure 21. Red eye zoomed in 3. Make sure your default Foreground and Background colors are black and white. 4. Click and hold on the little black triangle of the Healing Brush Tool button and select the Red Eye Tool. (Figure 22). Figure 22. Red Eye Tool
23 5. Click on the red part of the eye and paint, holding down the mouse button. You will see how the red will disappear (Figure 23). Hot Spot Removal Figure 23. Red eye corrected Using a flash can also cause another problem -shiny areas on people s faces or the flash reflection in the shiny surfaces. To correct this problem, follow the steps below: 1. Open the photo you wish to correct. 2. Select the Clone Stamp Tool from the Toolbox. 3. In the Options bar, change the Blend Mode from Normal to Darken (Figure 24). Figure 24. Setting the options for the Clone Stamp Tool 4. Set the Opacity to 50 percent. 5. Choose a soft-edged brush, set the diameter to 40 or thold down the Shift key and click in the clean area (without hot spots ) to get a sample of color (Figure 25). Figure 25. Clone Stamp selection 7. Paint over the hot spot, the light area will gradually darken (Figure 26). Figure 26. Corrected image
24 Adding Flash If you took pictures indoors without a flash they will turn out underexposed and dark; in Photoshop, you can make your photos lighter. To fix underexposed photos, follow these steps: 1. Open a digital photo you wish to correct (Figure 27). Figure 27. Underexposed photo 2. In the main menu, go to Layers > Duplicate. In the next window, name the layer Layer Make sure Layer 1 is selected in the Layers palette. In the Blending Mode drop down box, change the Blending Mode to Screen (Figure 28). The whole image will lighten. Figure 28. Changing the Blending Mode
25 4. Keep duplicating Layer 1 till you are satisfied with the your image (Figure 29). Color Adjustment Figure 29. Corrected photo Color adjustment options in Photoshop CS5 can help you to make your digital photos look more natural. To color correct your images, follow these steps: 1. Open the image you wish to correct. 2. In the main menu, go to Image > Adjustments > Levels. You will see a dialog box displaying a diagram of the colors in your image (Figure 30). The black triangle is for shadows, the gray is for midtones, the white is for highlights. In the Channels dropdown menu, you can choose between RGB, Red, Green, or Blue. These indicate whether your changes effect all the colors, or just one (red, green, or blue). Figure 30. Levels dialog box
26 3. Make sure the Preview box is checked off. Choose the channel you wish to change and drag the triangles. Dragging the black triangle to the right will make the shadows in your photo darker; dragging the white triangle to the left will make the higlights in your photo lighter; dragging the gray triangle to the left will make the midtones in your photo lighter, dragging it to the right will make the midtones darker. You will be able to see the changes in your image. Figure 31. Underexposed photo Figure 32. Corrected photo
27 14. Saving Remember to save your work often. Saving frequently lessens the risk of losing the work you have been doing. To save your Photoshop document, do the following: 1. Click File > Save. 2. Navigate to the place you would like your document to be saved by using the drop down menu and the navigation window. 3. Enter the name of your document in the Save As text field. 4. Choose a format to save your project in from the Format dropdown menu. (Figure 33) Figure 33. Saving a document 5. Click the Save button in the bottom right corner of the dialogue box. 6. Check to make sure that your document is saved in the place you intended. Note: If you save your file as PSD (default Photoshop saving format) your layers will be preserved, but the file size will be large. If you save your file as JPEG (a common image format) your layers will be flattened and become one layer. The file size though will be significantly smaller.
