Photoshop CS2 has some powerful and convenient features. However, it does not have all the features of the older version. Even so, if you are using an earlier version of Photoshop, you can download the latest version of Photoshop, along with the CS2 extensions, and perform the steps to replace them.
Topics in Photoshop: The Image Editor
When you first open Photoshop, you see a large window that includes tools, brushes, palettes, and other features. (See Figure 2-1.)
**Figure 2-1:** The Photoshop interface.
You can access many of Photoshop’s functions by using the tabs on the right side of the interface. You can also hide certain tools to put them at the top of your toolbox. This makes them more available to use.
The following sections introduce you to Photoshop’s major features.
The primary feature in the main workspace is the Image section. It includes the following sections:
Backdrop: The backdrop holds your image.
Layers: The layers give you a way to group objects and manipulate them together. You can manipulate everything on a layer, including color, and it remains layered on top of everything else.
Gradient Map: A gradient map is a convenient way to color a selection or fill an object. The gradient you choose has a physical location on your monitor as a result of its calculation by Photoshop.
Tools: You can use the Tools palette (shown in the margin here) to perform various tasks on your image. The tools are grouped into various categories, including Painting, Design, and Motion.
Buttons: The buttons at the top of the screen are for various commands. You can also place the tools in the Interface, which displays a large version of a color selection.
You can perform all of the following functions in the main workspace.
Creating a new document
When you open Photoshop you see the New Document dialog box, which enables you to specify a new document’s name and the resolution of your new image. You also have the option to select any default settings.
You can also create a new file by choosing File⇒New, or simply pressing Ctrl+N, and specify the size (pixel count) that you want. After you select the new document, the New Document dialog box closes, and you are presented with your new file.
The File Format (Expert) option saves your new file as a
It has been recently updated to version 20.0. There are other useful variations which run on the Mac, which have been incorporated to offer further options.
Let’s take a look at the basic use of Photoshop Elements and learn how to edit and crop, retouch, resize, create a web presence, create and edit memes, and make Photoshop Elements at home.

The Spot Healing Brush allows you to click on a specific area of an image and selectively grab the surrounding pixels to fill that area. You can also click and drag in order to move the area you are working with. You can control the intensity and opacity of your selection, and you can invert the selection to remove elements you don’t want. The Spot Healing Brush is great for removing dust or scratches from your photos.
The Healing Brush is similar to the Spot Healing Brush, but it is designed to perform “editing” in addition to simple repair work. The Healing Brush can be used to fill holes in an image, repair skin blemishes, or smooth out wrinkles.
Each blend mode provides different effects on the way the two layers are combined. The modes give you control of how much of each layer to use in the final product.
Overlay: This mode means that the new color is added to the bottom layer, and it is only shown on top of the image.
Addition: The new color is added to both layers, so it’s added to the top, and it’s shown on top.
Soft Light: Both layers are combined as they are in the original photo. This gives a slight bluish-toned glaze to the image.
Hard Light: Both layers are combined as they are in the original photo. This gives an extremely bright, colorized image.
Exclusion: The new color is added to only one layer, and it is shown on top.
Multiply: A color is added to both layers, but its luminance and saturation are turned down. This gives the result of a light filter that dims the image.
Screen: The new color is added to both layers, but its luminance and saturation are turned down. This gives the result of a dark filter that darkens the image.
Darken: A color is added to both layers, and its luminance and saturation are turned down. This gives the result of a filter that darkens the image.
Luminosity: Both layers are combined as they are in the original photo. This is the default blend mode. It gives the result of a simple lightening or darkening filter.
Color: The new color and the original color are both added to both layers. The two colors are combined as they are in the original photo. This gives the result of a simple color filter.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA — An Orlando man who had been charged with “swatting” threats to police and a school was released from jail after police noted evidence that his claims were false.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, an Orange County judge on Thursday night ordered the Orange County Sheriff’s Office to release Jameel Ades of Orlando after he claimed he would turn a gun on a police SWAT team.
The judge found that there was no evidence that Ades was in possession of a gun, and that he posed a threat to public safety.
Sheriff’s officials believe that Ades, who they say is associated with a group of other swatters, had been playing with the idea of alerting law enforcement of phony threats — all for kicks.// This file is part of libigl, a simple c++ geometry processing library.
