    What is a digital image?

    According to Wikipedia, a digital image is “...a numerical representation of a two-dimensional image.” This means that a digital image is a computer-readable package of code that, when passed through a software application like Photoshop or your favorite browser, can be interpreted and displayed on your screen for you to view. A digital image may be a photography, a drawing, or an illustration; digital images usually have file names like JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, etc. Usually, digital images are still images. If it moves, we usually call it an animation or a digital video.

    This history of digital images is long and fascinating, and the technology behind digital images is complex and interesting.

    What is Photoshop, and what does it do?

     

    Photoshop is an app that allows you to manipulate digital images. Photoshop is a professional-level tool that is the industry standard for digital image manipulation. Once you start learning Photoshop basics, there’s no limit of what you can do or where you can take your skills!

    Here are some basic things you can easily do with Photoshop:

    • Open and make simple edits to a digital image (crop, resize, make adjustments, add text, etc.). Just make sure you have permission to edit the image.
    • Manipulate a digital image in simple to sophisticated ways (such as removing red eye, whitening teeth, removing imperfections, etc).
    • Combine two or more digital images. This is called a “collage” or “composite” and there are many different ways to do this in Photoshop, from the obvious to the extremely subtle.
    • Create digital images from scratch.
