If you tell me what photo editor I like the best, I’d say, of course, Photoshop. It can do almost anything with photos! In this post, I’m going to share with you the single reason I love Photoshop.
Can do almost anything with photos
Yup, that is the reason why I love Photoshop. Yeah, and I mean it can do almost anything. It can make a photo look so much better, remove unwanted items like scars on the face or rubbish in a background.
Enhance photos – If you have a ‘dull’ photo, don’t worry. You can use Photoshop to enhance the lighting and colors, which makes it so much better! Take look at this before-and-after picture, for example.
Before: Dull and ‘boring’
After: Beautiful and glorious!
What a photo enhancement! Even I can hardly believe that a dull and nothing-special photo can be turned into a glorious sight by just using Photoshop!
Cool touch-ups – Besides photo enhancements, Photoshop does some cool touch-ups. For example, a person in a normal photo can be turned into as if it were in another place, and maybe even another dimension. After all, Photoshop can do almost anything with photos.
Before: Just a normal photo of a man holding a spear taken in a studio.
After: Now he really looks like a warrior!
Anyway, if you want to enhance your photo colors, here’s the easy and basic tutorial – Turn Ho-Hum Color into WOW! with Photoshop
Remove unwanted items from photos like scars – And you know what? It is SO easy! In fact, I never realized it, until I was playing around with Photoshop, with the clone stamp. My first serious attempt was the photo of my face when I had chicken pox; quite successful!
I then wrote a howto post on that.
You can also remove rubbish from a background, a bird from a sky, and etc. Thanks to the clone stamp in Photoshop.
Photoshop has lot of tools, features, and options. For example, you can modify the size of your brush, exactly the way you want it. Not only that, it lets you adjust how blur you want the edges of the brush to be!
Also, there are a lot of features, like lighting or hue adjustments, layer merging, clone stamping, embossing, canvas size adjustments, selective colors, adjusting the hue, the list goes on and on, all of which makes it able to do just about anything with photos.
Photoshop is easy! You just need to know how to use it. Here are the 35 basic tutorials to get you started with Photoshop.

Me too! I looooove Photoshop. I think you can get “student prices” on most software you buy, Gloson.
Did you hear about the web designer who photoshopped himself to look 25 years younger? He was good but he shocked one of his prospective customers who was expecting a young goodlooking man!
