Hi, this is Software video review from SoftwareSlant.com and today I’m going to review a software called Adobe Photoshop CS4, and actually I’ll be reviewing the 64-bit version because that is much different from the normal 32-bit version.
One difference is that it just can use a much, much more memory than your standard 32-bit Photoshop. Now if you go Settings that now and if you go to Performance you can see that this is the available RAM for Photoshop and that if you’re running 32-bit version you can actually use that much. But if you’re using this 64-bit version then you can go ahead and use all of that.
Another nice thing that’s new in Photoshop CS4 is actually it can now use your end video or other at Graphic Sky if you have a powerful graphic sky you can use that, and it can actually make all the effects and all the drawings faster by using a special video card, and this is the first and dangerous to it I think and it’s really that much faster.
And another thing is that it now allows you to do a lot of trivial things and more and more, but if you just go ahead and just create a new document then we’ll see how we can get over that.
Now, we’re going to do a gradient there and then I’m going to add some text and just show you basically how that program works and how everything really, really seen as though. As you can see that’s the sample text that I put in there. Now, you can also add a lot of effects and well, anything basically you want. The program is really for professionals so there are a lot of good features that are actually only available or not available but only professionals probably know how to use but this is basically just an overview of how things work.
And I will show you couple of effects now and adjustments okay. If we go to adjustments and I go to color balance, and just show you how all of that. I go to adjustments brightness and contrast this is actually how it can look. Then, there are a lot of good features but the main thing is if you want to use Photoshop we’ll actually read a book probably read a book of some kind, and then you can actually pretty much do anything with it, and the new version is just faster and the effects are better. And basically, anything is really, really better with that one.
So, I’ll just keep on showing you some of the effects there and so you get an idea from that. Okay, so you now see how that looks, and this is actually very, very full now. So that is basically the Photoshop CS4, and there are a lot of things you can do with it. Well, the best thing is just actually if you go ahead and use it for itself and that is the best way actually.
