Yet even first time will be able to open up the program and play around with the tools and pallets available without messing anything up too badly. There are a variety of tutorials available over the Internet that can get you started on the basics if you feel uncomfortable with what you are seeing on your screen but I will attempt to make it easy for you.
When you open up the program you will be looking at the four basic areas in Adobe Photoshop CS2. At the top you have your menu bar and below that is your toolbar; the toolbox containing all the tools that you will use to edit your image is located on the left side of your screen and the palettes which have the variety of options for layers, text editing, colors, etc. are located on the right. To see what each item does in your tool box I recommend you hold your mouse over item and you should see a screen tip appear telling you the name of that tool.
What is the most amazing thing is that you can take photos using an average camera and then use the Photoshop CS2 tools to make them look like they were taken with the most expensive camera on the market. You can basically use your ordinary 3 megapixel point and shoot camera and take average pictures then use Photoshop CS2 to create a masterpiece. Such is the power of this program.
Most people are unaware of the fact that Photoshop CS2 is the hidden tool of professional photographers because even professional photographers encounter problems with their photos. One of the most common problems is red eye and is nearly impossible to prevent regardless of how good a photographer you are or what type of camera you have. In the past your photo would be ruined if it had red eye on it. Thankfully Photoshop CS2 has the tools we need to remove red eye without anyone ever knowing the problem existed in the first place.
Another common problem when taking photos is shaky hands which create blurry photos. Again, Photoshop CS2 comes with sharpening tools that are able to remove these errors. On the other hand, if you like the blurry effect there are tools included for that as well.
Another thing that is hard to predict are lighting problems however I am sure you are already aware that Photoshop CS2 can take nearly any problem that seemed insurmountable and fix it with a few clicks of the mouse. Is your photo missing someone? Simply remove that person from a different photo and paste them where you want them to go. Now, this is a bit more tricky and requires a bit more experimentation, however it can be accomplished with Photoshop CS2. Using Adobe Photoshop CS2, you can be sure that you will be able to turn those ordinary looking photos in to something magical.
