Photoshop Tutorial : Introduction to Adobe Photoshop

Brief introduction

Here is a brief introduction in Photoshop.All the cool images you see on the internet , i mean ... about 90% of them are done in Adobe Photoshop . I use Adobe Photoshop CS3 . If you're serious in learning Photoshop , and making a career out of it , i suggest you buy the software . Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS5 also do very well . So ... somehow you managed to install and run the software . If not , make sure you meet the following requirements :

  • Operating System : I recommend you to use Windows XP Service Pack 2 if not 3. It's a little old , but it's one of the most standard and stable OSs (Operating Systems) out there. It will also work with Vista Business , Ultimate, Enterprise or Home Premium . If you own a mac , Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS4 Extended will also run fine on a MAC with OS X v10.4.11 through 10.5.4 , 10.6 .

  • Processor : If you want a smooth running Photoshop , i suggest you to upgrade that old , dusty hardware of yours to an at least 1.8 gigahertz processor . For MACs PowerPC G5 , or a multi core Intel processor will do just fine.

  • Memory : You will need a minimum 512 megabytes of RAM. I have about 2.5 gigabytes of RAM , and i can't say that it runs perfect. So memory ... the bigger the amount , the better it will run.

  • Hard-Drive Space : 2 gigabytes for a PC and about 3 for a MAC. Others : You will need a monitor capable of displaying a resolution of at least 1024 by 768 pixels and a 16-bit video card that supports OpenGl 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0. I have a nVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT , but any card that will meet those requirements would do just fine.
