But maybe Photoshop is really intended to do more than just “Photoshop” pictures — it can do it all.
Here’s a look at everything Photoshop can do.
1) Save Files as Adobe Compatible Formats
If you’ve got a Windows PC, Photoshop should be right there when you open a document. You’ll see a window with a sign that reads “Save to Photoshop.psd.”
You’ll also see options to save as various other file formats, including Adobe Illustrator (AI) files, or as a PDF, for printing.
You can also create a.PDF document from any Photoshop file using a PDF generator, which saves the file as PDF and provides a few different options for page size, margins, orientation and more.
You can also save as a Photoshop Cloud.psd file, which serves as a kind of virtual hard disk for saving your files. This lets you easily retrieve or replicate your work from different computers.
2) Embed Fonts
One of Photoshop’s biggest strengths is that it works like a word-processing application — you can embed font styles and fonts into an image. This lets you create an image that comes complete with a whole collection of premade text elements.
You can also create text layers that have certain fonts embedded within them. This can be very helpful, as there are preinstalled fonts that come in a wide variety of styles. You can also get creative and combine your own fonts with others.
3) Make Graphics
If you have certain shapes and images already, you can take them and make them into graphics.
Most graphics editors let you get really specific with your shapes and graphics. For example, you can use some of Photoshop’s shape tools to get fine-tuned control over what kinds of shapes and graphics you’ll end up with. You can also manipulate those images and use various tools to create layer-based graphics.
4) Place Photos in the Canvas
If you’ve got a good picture in a particular spot in your design, you can use Photoshop’s Create Stroke to place it in a container within the image. You can also use the “Place” tool to load a specified image into the file and add it to the canvas.
5) Convert to Grayscale
As the name suggests, converting a color picture to grayscale makes it look more old-fashioned — like old black-and-white film.

How to open an image
By default, when a new image is opened, it is opened as a window that contains two sides. The bottom of the new image, called the canvas, is used to create the image.
When an image is opened for editing, the Background layer can be deleted. To do so, right-click on the Background layer and select Delete.
Select the Layer panel (Window → Layers) and check the box next to Background to make sure the Background layer is set to active.
If the Layer panel is not visible, click the triangle next to the New Image icon in the top-left corner of the workspace and select New → Layer (you can also use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+N).
If there is no background in the canvas, the image will be white.
How to delete, copy and move an image
The image window can be easily resized. You can use the handles in the sides of the window. You can also resize the image to a specific size by clicking and dragging the corners.
To resize the image, simply drag one of the corners of the window. To reset the image size to the original size, simply drag the middle of the canvas.
You can drag and drop an image from your computer to the image window.
To copy the image, simply drag the image to the clipboard and paste it to the image window.
To move the image to a different location, simply click and drag the image to a new location.
How to edit an image
Adobe Photoshop Elements has three different editing modes. You can create and edit images in the Foreground, Background, and Layers modes.
In Foreground mode
In the Foreground mode, you can select and edit the image. You can select the entire canvas and then edit the selected area. You can also highlight multiple layers at the same time. When you are done, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE (Windows) or CTRL+D (Mac).
Foreground mode can be accessed by clicking the Edit button in the top-left corner
There are several ways to use this tool. Click on an area in your image to select it. Then, hold down the Alt key and click on an area in the background.
Several shortcut keys are available for quick access to the basic tools. The “c” key is used to undo an action, “u” to erase it, and “x” to exit to the main document window. The tools are:
“P” to make selections
“S” to zoom in and out
“U” to undo
“I” to invert the selection
“B” to blur the image
“D” to desaturate the image
“X” to exit the brush tool
“C” to clone the image
“V” to paste it somewhere
“T” to transition it
“Y” to apply a blur
“F” to fill the selection
“K” to make a selection from any color
“G” to make a selection from a light area to a dark area
“J” to make a selection from a dark area to a light area
“L” to make a selection from a dark to a light area
“G” to make a selection from any gray to any other gray
“Z” to make a selection from any black to any other black
“S” to make a selection from any white to any other white
“V” to make a selection from any transparent to any other transparent
“K” to make a selection from any opacity to any other opacity
“U” to make a selection from any brightness to any other brightness
“B” to make a selection from any darkness to any other darkness
“X” to make a selection from any transparent to any other transparent
Each brush has a unique shape and behaves differently. For example, the Normal brush has a standard shape, but the Round brush has a round shape. Click on the brush to access the settings. You can set the following parameters, including brush size, opacity, size of the background image to which it will be applied, and angle of the brush.
Choose a brush by clicking on it in the brush list.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-like binding activity of Vibrio vulnificus biofilm exopolysaccharides.
Vibrio vulnificus is an important human pathogen known to attach to surfaces and to form biofilms, a key factor in human infections. Biosurfactant exopolysaccharides produced by marine Gram-negative bacteria including V. vulnificus are hypothesized to play a role in the adherence of bacteria to surfaces. In the present study we employed a fluorescent high-performance size-exclusion chromatography technique to quantify and visualize binding of V. vulnificus biofilm exopolysaccharides to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) adsorbents. The inability of V. vulnificus biofilm exopolysaccharides to inhibit the absorption of PAHs to glass surfaces was confirmed, as was the potent inhibitory effect of V. vulnificus cell-free supernatant on PAH adsorption. This binding was structure-dependent and inhibited by exopolysaccharides as small as disaccharides. Complementary isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) and quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) data demonstrated exopolysaccharides binding to PAHs strongly, particularly those with conjugated double bonds. The observed hydrophobic interactions between V. vulnificus biofilm exopolysaccharides and PAHs could explain the enhanced biofilm formation observed on PAH substrates and the varying toxicity of crude oil extracts.
