Now this last little segment here before we close out this intro tour, it's not going to be really that cool of a demo. I just want you to be aware very briefly of other programs that have access to Photoshop. That's part of a glory of Photoshop is that because it's the industry standard so many other programs use it.
Now no program operates in a bubble. There is no one program that does everything. Photoshop comes close, but if you want to have a wider array of things that you can do with Photoshop you need to use additional programs. But again because Photoshop is the standard, so many other of those programs accept Photoshop files. They understand the way that Photoshop thinks, meaning we could bring a lot of our Photoshop work over into another program.
If you were using another image editing program that would not be the case. Other programs wouldn't recognize your native files if you were using another Image Editor. So say for example I wanted to do really sweet motion graphics for broadcast. I would probably choose Adobe After Effects for that. Well, Adobe After Effects can take in layered Photoshop files. What if I was doing art? I could also use Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Illustrator recognizes Photoshop files and layer comps which we will talk about later.
Likewise, Adobe InDesign for page layout also understands Photoshop files and brings them in natively. I could bring in layers selectively. I could also like Illustrator bring in layer comps to InDesign as well. And now as of CS3 Flash could even understand Photoshop files. So you could just bring your native PSD file into Flash. Again, Photoshop is the world standard image editing application and that really has its perks.
So I hope you have enjoyed our brief tour through Photoshop of what Photoshop can do. I am so excited to actually get into the program and show you what I am doing here so you could start making this magic for yourself.
