The most popular tasks that people perform in Photoshop are:
Creating images from scratch
Adding and altering digital photographs
Making adjustments to existing images
These tasks are performed by manipulating multiple layers, which are linked to various regions of the image. You can edit each of them individually or modify them collectively to create a new image.
Photoshop also offers the ability to perform:
Raster image editing
Image composition, manipulation, and adjustment
Image color management
File format conversion

Alternative tools for editing photos
Most avid Photoshop users have used Photoshop or another image-editing program, such as Paint Shop Pro, GIMP, or Adobe Photoshop Elements, but some photographers express dissatisfaction with the tools provided by their computer image-editing software.
They prefer the “handcrafted” look and feel of the previous industry standard, Adobe Photoshop. Users often comment that they find newer versions of Photoshop too confusing, and that it lacks the file format export abilities that past versions offered. Many users don’t like that Photoshop doesn’t have the same basic toolbox of older photo-editing programs. Many of them feel that the whole world has moved on from Photoshop and that it’s better to start over from scratch than to use a “unfinished” image-editing program.
You may be thinking, “Why do I need another image-editing program? Why can’t I just use Photoshop? What else can I do that I haven’t done before?”
There are a few options to consider when

How to use Photoshop, Elements to edit images
When editing images, you need to be able to perform basic editing tasks. This includes correcting exposure, adding and editing shadows and highlights, and cropping images to precisely cut out parts of the image.
Get your images into Photoshop by opening them up in Photoshop Elements, which is located at the bottom of the main window.
Click on the new image tab to create a new image.

Save an image in Photoshop Elements
Once you have your image open, you can save it to the desktop or your computer’s temporary folder. These folders can then be moved to the ‘Downloads’ folder which can be found in your computer’s main user directory:
Back up Images
As with many programs, not all the images you import into Photoshop Elements will be saved when you close it. In addition, the amount of space they take up can become an issue, so you should always back up copies of the images you create.
The best place to store your image files is on a separate hard drive and preferably one that is not connected to your computer. If you’re thinking about backing up a large number of images, look into purchasing a plug-in or add-on that will help you do this.
Elements supports the typical methods for backing up images:
Print the image out.
Export the image.
Save an image as a PDF.
Copy the image and paste it into another document.
If you have a lot of space, you can archive images and use them as part of an archive.
Adding Shadows and Highlights
Adobe Photoshop Elements supports most of the basic photo editing tools. You can correct contrast and brightness, clean up the black levels, add shadows and highlights, and perform a variety of other tasks on your images.
Edit exposure by increasing or decreasing the overall exposure by dragging the curves over an image. Dragging the highlight up highlights the bright areas, while dragging the shadow to the right shows darker areas.
Adding Shadows and Highlights
Highlighting can occur in two ways – highlight clipping, and highlight scattering.
How to send a request through browser using paypal interface without redirecting to paypal page?
I have a web app which requires the user to login to the app using paypal through a payment page. Once the user is logged in to the app, the user needs to be redirected to another page.
There are two issues, one is the redirection to paypal page. The other issue is that I need to send a post request to a webservice once the user is logged in to the app. I am not sure how I can send a post request using paypal interface on browser.
I read about paypal web services, I would like to know if I have a user account in paypal, do I need to make use of paypal interface or paypal web services?
The paypal website does not create an online transaction. The paypal website is designed to facilitate you conducting transactions with paypal customers. There are methods by which your application may send a transaction to paypal.
The paypal website serves a basic client API which allows it’s users to access their paypal account information and conduct transactions.
There are other ways to build a transaction. One way would be to conduct a barebones transaction using the HTML Express Checkout api. This will allow you to pass your sensitive credentials through the webpage (the website). It doesn’t provide you with a secure login mechanism.
If you are going to conduct a transaction, you will need to create an explicit exchange of funds between you and the paypal merchant. For an API integration, you may only need to get the user to paypal, then redirect them to your website.
You would use the Express Checkout API from paypal to get your paypal customer to pay your website’s merchant account. If you are using the same merchant account as you do your paypal account, you only need to setup the redirect.
If you need to use the same merchant account to process your sales, you may need to create a set of orders, then transfer funds. This is problematic for API integration, since you may need to create a transaction, then get the approval from the paypal merchant after the customer has been redirected.
It is possible to redirect your customer to paypal after they have made an initial payment. This would mean that you need to paypal, then redirect your customer to your website. Then redirect your customer back to paypal. You

If you’re trying to print an image with Photoshop, first make sure that the Print dialog box is visible (choose View Print Setup).

After you’re happy with the settings, click Print to make the changes take effect. When you’re using the Print dialog box, see Print Preview to learn more about your options.
In addition to a Print dialog box, you may see a Print icon in some versions of Photoshop; click this icon to open a Print dialog box, which gives you more control over printing your documents. Once you find your way around the Print dialog box and determine your final settings, click Print to close the dialog box and send your file to the printer.
