Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and marketed by Adobe Systems. It can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers, color-manage images, and much more. Photoshop was created in 1988 by Thomas Knoll and has evolved to encompass all aspects of image editing, including photography. One of its most important features is that it allows users to seamlessly work between a raster and vector imaging system.

How to Get Started with Adobe Creative Cloud
Creative Cloud is Adobe’s new suite of apps. It includes everything you need to design, publish and share your work. What sets CreativeCloud apart from other design suites is that it’s a cloud-based service, meaning that all the apps are available on multiple devices, so you can work on your designs wherever you go. Getting started with creative cloud is easy! All you need to do is download the app of your choice onto any device and sign up for an account. Once signed in, you’ll be able to access all the tools in one central location. There are three levels of membership: Basic (for students), Creative Cloud (for individuals) and Business/Enterprise (for organizations). For example, if you’re a student who just wants to use Photoshop CC for your projects, then basic will suit your needs best; if you’re using Photoshop for personal or professional purposes but not as part of a team with many members, then Creative Cloud will likely work best; and if you’re using Photoshop as part of a larger organization which requires significant collaboration among members such as working across teams or sharing assets across departments, then Business/Enterprise is what you should get.
