Photoshop: What Is It?
Thomas and John Knoll, two brothers, created Photoshop in 1987. In 1988, they sold Adobe the distribution rights. Initially, the item was known as Display.
Both Windows and Mac machines can run Photoshop. Users can generate, modify, and save images in a variety of formats because it is a raster graphics editor. Photoshop may be used to edit a single image or big groups of photographs.
With the help of Photoshop’s layer-based editing system, you may create and modify photos with several overlays. Layers serve as filters that impact underlying colours and can be used to add shadows and other effects.
Keyboard shortcuts and automation capabilities in Photoshop can help you speed up time-consuming operations. Install new brushes, textures, plugins, effects, and other helpful add-ons to Photoshop to keep it functioning better.

How Do Artboards Work in Photoshop?
Similar to its cousin in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop’s artboards feature treats each artboard as a unique layered document. The layers, layer groups, text, smart objects, and other elements that can be added to a Photoshop document are all separate for each artboard. Both the order of the artboards itself and the layering order in each artboard can be changed in the Layers palette.
