What is Photoshop?

Photoshop is software for Macintosh and Windows-based computers that enables you to edit photos and artwork scanned to disk and to print your results. Here’s an example: Your job is to take a picture of Mr. High-and-Mighty CEO, touch up his crow’s feet, and publish his smiling face of the cover of the annual report. No problem. Just shoot the photo, have it digitized to a Photo CD or some other high-tech gizmo, open Mr. H & M inside Photoshop, dab on the digital wrinkle cream, fix his toupee(and for heaven’s sake, do something about those jowls), and there you go. The man looks presentable no matter how badly the company is doing.
