learning Photoshop from beginners, in this article I will share tips on how to learn Photoshop right starting from
the basics and what you should understand when you just want to learn Photoshop. And, here is the right
sequence in learning Photoshop for beginners or rather beginners who are new to Adobe Photoshop.
1. IDENTIFY PART OF PHOTOSHOP WORKING ROOM
The first step in learning Photoshop is to recognize and learn first the parts of the Photoshop workspace such
as the menu bar, option bar and other parts. And the following is an explanation of the parts of the workspace
- Workspace, a place to do image editing
- Menu Bar, Photoshop section that has many menus and is useful for making commands (such as New, Open, Save, etc.)
- Tool Bar, also known as the Tools Box is a bar that contains various editing tools.
- Option Bar, advanced settings on the tool used.
- Panel/Palette, a panel that has the use of each (Navigation, Color, History, Layer, etc.)
2. LEARN THE USE OF LAYER
Layers are layers in image editing (so each object has layers, to make editing easier). Now, in studying this
layer, you have to learn the functions in the layers panel and layer menus such as creating a new layer, type of
layer, and others.
3. LEARN TOOL FUNCTIONS
As we all know that tools are an important part of Photoshop. Because, all editing processes that we do in
Photoshop must use the tool. And here is a brief explanation of the types of tools and their functions.
- Selection Tools, to make selection on objects in an image (Lasso Tool, Magic Wand Tool, etc.)
- Crop And Slice Tools, to cut objects.
- Annotation, Measuring and Navigation Tools, functions to note, measure and navigate functions (Ruler Tool, Note Tool and so on)

- Retouching Tools, to refine, edit and retouching photos (Smudge Tool, Blur Tool, etc.)
