Photoshop can come across as a very daunting piece of software to someone that has never used it before, let me walk you through my top tools to be using.

Even us designers had to start somewhere!

Below you will see a list of all the essentials you need to get the ball rolling. There are numerous tools, some you might use daily, others you might have never used after 10 years but, let me tell you a little more about what tools most benefit me. Don’t forget, if you are still finding things a little confusing, just head over to our forum where we will be more than happy to answer your questions for you and guide you through the process in further detail – It’s what we’re here for!

Tools are a really important part of Photoshop, you’ve got your brush, layer adjustment, clone and so many more.
