Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a graphics editor software for raster or bitmap images developed by the Adobe systems for Windows and Mac operating systems. Since its release in 1990, Adobe Photoshop has become the industry standard for image editing and graphics processing, so much so, that today ‘photoshop’ is used as a verb, as in ‘photoshopping an image’. Photoshop edits and composes images in layers, supporting all available image formats, and also supports text rendering, 3D Graphics processing, as well as video editing.
