Have you ever worked on a piece in Photoshop and spent hours working on a single image, while editing you realize that you made a mistake while doing so. You have done so many details to the image is too late to press undo.With Photoshop, there are many ways of editing. One of the ways to help stop this problem which I love is that Photoshop allows you to do non-destructive editing and preserve everything to your piece.
There are many ways to edit in Photoshop, but one of the ways is with non-destructive editing. Non-destructive editing is simply a way of editing that does not destroy your original image. You can do this by creating a duplicate copy of your original peace, and then creating adjustment layers that you can edit and delete if you don’t like the changes made to your image. Adobe on their site talks about the many ways of non-destructive editing, which to me is a better way of editing because you can always go back and redo or undo something you don’t like or need to fix. It also goes into details about making object smart objects which then you can create smart filters to adjust anything on your image without permanently changing your image. Examples include transforming your image and editing it in camera raw. There’s so many things you can do to keep your peace in its original state without doing any damage by creating a masterpiece that you can quickly apply edits to without touching your original image. This comes in handy especially when you have a piece that you have to do a lot of major images and and removing objects in your image. This is also convenient when you have a 100 photos to adjust the white balance on. All you would have to do is apply an adjustment layers once to all of them and watch Photoshop do the rest.
To do destructive editing doesn’t mean that you destroy your picture, it simply means that you do permanent editing to your image. And weighs you want to do this is if you need to change the white balance of an image, or just the the color tone of your photo. Both destructive and non-destructive editing comes in handy when you need to do editing on multiple of objects within your image, and also will you need to do the editing with your whole image.
When editing a smart object you are able to rasterize your graphics. To rasterize your graphics simply means to convert your image into pixel form. One of the pros about this technique is that you are able to link it and updated from anywhere in Photoshop. The con about this technique is that if rasterize a text layer, you are now unable to edit the text.
They’re also vector graphics which use a different format than a rasterized graphic period instead of pixels they use connection points to make up a line or curve in your image. These are helpful when you need to scale something down or up without losing it’s quality, which vectr.com explains. Working with vector graphics come in handy when creating things such as logos and designs.
I love working with Photoshop because of all of its editing capabilities. There are so many ways to edit in Photoshop it’s your choice of how you want to do it.
