Today, How to digital scrapbook is now very easy to master thanks to the power of the computer and digital camera technology. And, there are also photo editing software programs that can help in making your ordinary looking photos into professional looking pics. One software program that is very popular among photography enthusiasts and professional photographers is Adobe Photoshop.
You might wonder why professional photographers need a photo editing software program. You should be seeing Photoshop as a photo processing lab, as included in Photoshop is everything that a photographer would need to make sure that every photo taken is incredible. Here you can edit and manipulate your photos to make them look their best, as you will soon discover in this Photoshop tutorial.
The software is somewhat easy to learn. However, if you are a first time user of the program you will need to play around and get yourself used to the desktop and various tools. There are various photoshop tutorials available over the Internet that can get you started on the basics if you feel uncomfortable with what you are seeing on your screen but I will attempt to make it easy for you to get started from here on.
There are four basic areas within the Adobe Photoshop software. At the top you see your menu bar, below that is your toolbar, the toolbox is located on the left side of your screen and the palettes are located on the right. Once you have an idea where things are all you need to do is hold your mouse over each toolbar and toolbox item and you should see a screen tip appear telling you the name of that tool.
What is the most amazing thing is that you can take photos using an average camera and then use Photoshop tools to make them look like they were taken with the most expensive camera on the market. You can basically use your ordinary 3 megapixel point and shoot camera and take average pictures then use Photoshop to create a masterpiece. Such is the power of this program.
Also, you can never avoid errors on the photos you take. For example, you may experience red eye on the photos where the subject will have red eyes. When this happens, it will be almost impossible for you to remove the red eye unless you take them to a professional photographer that will be able to edit the photos for you. However, with Adobe Photoshop, all you need to do is remove the red eye with one of the tools provided.

Shaky hands and blurry photos are another problem with many photos. Photoshop contains sharpening tools that are able to remove these errors. On the other hand, if you like the blurry effect there are tools included for that as well.
Dull colors and lighting problems are no longer a problem as Photoshop can take nearly any problem that seemed insurmountable and fix it with a few clicks of the mouse. Is your photo missing someone? Simply remove that person from a different photo and paste them where you want them to go. Now, this is a bit more tricky and requires a bit more experimentation, however it can be accomplished with Photoshop. Using Adobe Photoshop, you can be sure that you will be able to turn those ordinary looking photos in to something magical.
