It used by professionals and amateurs to edit the digital pictures. Adobe Photoshop has established a diverse niche for itself, and many experts have started referring the Adobe Photoshop as the best photo editing software. Adobe Photoshop offers a plethora of editing features which are often not provided by its counterparts.

Adobe Photoshop: Photo Editing Software

For about three decades, Adobe Photoshop has maintained its numero uno position as one of the best software tools for photo editing. In all these years, it has exhibited outstandingly consistent vision and has leveraged some of the latest advances in the computer science to deliver its users a comprehensive set of efficacious tools. Using Photoshop, you can not only edit the pictures and remove flaws from them, but also completely transform them.

Adobe Photoshop offers many smart tools designed for maximizing the clarity and reducing noise from the pictures. The camera shake reduction tool can analyze the trajectory (the direction of movement) and then reverse the blur caused by camera shake digitally. Apart from these, Adobe Photoshop also supports the addition of a variety of photographic enhancements to uplift the quality of the original picture in multiple ways.

Another awesome feature offered by Adobe Photoshop is the Advanced Healing Brush, which enables the healing of the irregular areas in the pictures by painting over those areas. Not only can you remove the blurred areas from the picture, but using Adobe Photoshop, you can also create a broad array of blur effects to make your pictures look even more appealing. For instance, you can use this blur effect to give a more authentic look to the prop blades or spinning wheel.

3D Printing: The Future of Photoshop

In 2014, the Adobe added a feature of 3D printing into the Photoshop to facilitate the designers to create and print their own 3D creations with much ease. 3D printing, which is also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of making 3D solid objects from the digital files. The future of 3D printing seems quite bright as it is being implemented in a variety of applications and tasks. The applications of 3D printing are proliferating, and its availability through Adobe Photoshop is making the designers and creative professionals to use 3D printing in diverse industry verticals.

3D printing in Photoshop supports a broad spectrum of 3D file formats subsuming IGES, PLY, U3D, and VRML. Also, it aids users with a streamlined 3D painting experience, 3D printing workflow improvements and the ability to combine different print jobs into one single print bed.

The 3D printing feature in Photoshop enables the users to –

  • Leverage the 3D mesh simplification for better overall processing and performance. With 3D mesh simplification, one can view the objects in three-dimensional and the number of the polygons in the design have been reduced to enable faster processing
  • The 3D printing allows the users to edit the colors in 3D easily while eliminating the problems of incompatibility with the vertex color, which is the most significant element contained by the 3D scans
  • Development and application of three-dimensional bump maps for adding the texture to the 3D objects from the pictures. These textures are transformed into the bump maps for allowing flexibility as well as versatility required to manipulate depth and height in the customized 3D objects

I want a career in video editing, can any editors advise on what certification I need and what type of work experience will impress future employers?

As the owner of a video production company, where you went to school is not nearly as important to me as what you can show me, namely your reel. When beginning in video production & editing, gaining experience is the most important priority. The 2 most common ways are to go to film school or start by yourself with tutorials from Google/YouTube.

I am not going to cover film schools but you can do a local search if that is your interest. Depending on your financial resources you can shoot your own video and then practice editing it. Another excellent inexpensive asset is to buy stock footage from a stock footage company like VideoBlocks and practice editing with others content. Once you have your basic skills in place you can contact local video production companies and request to intern with them, a common intern relationship allows you work alongside a production crew to gain real life professional experience on paid projects, you can generally include your contributions in your reel. If possible, make yourself available to be on shoots as well so you get to understand both sides of filmmaking.

The last thing to consider is if you want to freelance or work in a production house, you may want to wait to decide until after interning and having the experience working for a production company. Many times as you gain competency, you can make the switch from intern into paid position within the same company. The simple truth is that as your skills increase so does your

demand and other opportunities which often lead to side projects when employedfulltime in production.
