DIGITAL IMAGE EDITING MADE EASYPhotoshop is an invaluable tool for the artist and some form of a photo editing program should a part of any artist's set of tools.
But Photoshop is complex and it can be intimidating to get started. Sure, there are plenty of tutorials available for using the program but most of these are overly complex or just focus on showing you a quick trick without going into any depth.
As artists, we have a very specific set of needs when it comes to using the program. And we don’t have to know every single feature of the program in order to accomplish our goals.
We need to know how to enhance our photo references without making them appear manipulated, how to remove or move subjects within a scene, how to resize them, and how to crop our images to make our compositions stronger. We may want to lay a grid over the reference or isolate the values and tones so they are easier to recognize. And of course, when our traditional art is complete, we need to know how to make it look its best so that we can share it with potential patrons or clients.
THINK PHOTOSHOP IS TOO COMPLEX?Photoshop is a powerful imaging program, but it doesn't have to be complex. The traditional artist can benefit greatly from what Photoshop has to offer - especially when it comes to preparing and editing photo references or editing finished traditional artworks to share.
