Photographs help capture the moments that we wish we could hold on to forever. Your wedding day is encapsulated in a collage of photos. Your daughter’s first birthday party is a gem you keep on the mantle for display. You want to be sure that these photos look as wonderful as the real events felt when they were happening. Whether you are a professional photographer or just one of those people that likes the best things in life, Adobe Photoshop has solutions for all of your photo needs.

The best thing about Photoshop software is that it is not difficult to use. The average person can use Photoshop Elements or any of the other Photoshop products to make beautiful prints without much in the way of instruction. You will have access to cutting edge technologies like Flash and your results will be breathtaking. Take full advantage of this wonderful software that you have in your possession.

If you have an image you want to enhance, you can use Vanishing Point to beef up your image. You can get outstanding results by using Vanishing Point to duplicate, paint or paste images that enhance the perspective of the elements around the photo. Extend the top of that castle you snapped a shot of when you were in England that got cut off by tree branches. Replace the elements of photos that are missing, such as old, historic family photos or damaged prints.

There are a few things you can do to adjust color or the presentation of your images in pictures that can make your photographs appear more professional. You can create near perfect prints using TIFF. If you want to edit your digital photos alter in Photoshop, save them in Tagged Image File Format. This will hold your image quality. Click on File and Save As in your image-editing program. You can find TIFF in the drop down list menu.

If your photos just aren’t crisp enough, you can use a sharpening tool to jazz them up. Another way to sharpen your photos is to use the image editor’s sharpen tool to sharpen up the sides of elements in your photos. You can use the Unsharpen Mask or Sharpen but be careful with them. They cause your image to be grainy or distorted. If you want to put more emphasis on your subject you ca soften the background. To do this you need to choose the whole subject with the image editor’s magic wand.

Pixels are also very important when you want to obtain the clearest picture possible. The more pixels you have the better quality of the photo. For instance, if you have 100 pixels you will have okay pictures that are somewhat mediocre. If you have 150 pixels you will have adequate but not optimum prints. Once you reach 200 pixels you will be able to produce excellent prints that are of great quality. 300 pixels will give you outstanding photos that will impress all that see them.
