    Hi there, I'm just about to start using photoshop. I have picture editing software before but it is not an adobe photoshop. It is very different from the other. I just want to know how to use the hand tool, brush tool and other tool in photoshop. Can anyone help me with this one? If you have a tutorial site for this one kindly provide it. Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks.

    I think he ment, what do they do...

    Now asking this question is as good as asking for the True meaning of life ( no not 42...)

    but the hand tool is simply to pan around your image
    I have been using photoshop for 3 almost 4 years, and still have tons to learn...

    I know a lot of programs are different, so knowing which programs you have are key. Also, you can find out how to do anything on youtube. I couldn't figure out how to do the digital diet on people to slim them down a little in their pictures. Youtube showed me that all you had to do is select filter, liquify & either the pucker tool, warp tool or bloat tool. I hope this helps you...

    I always suggest Adobe classroom in a book. Great hard copy tutorial with projects to get your feet wet into Photoshop, good luck.

    True but, a thread isn't just for the benefit of the OP. Most of the people that visit TPF are not members of the forum and visit as guests.

    As it is today, there are 4 current versions of Photoshop:

    Photoshop Elements 10
    Photoshop Lightroom 4
    Photoshop CS 5
    Photoshop CS5 Extended

    Each version of Photoshop includes access to instruction on how to use the software. It's called Adobe Community Help and with Photoshop open on your computer ACH can be accessed by pressing your computer keyboard's F1 key or clicking on 'Help > Photoshop help' on the Applications bar.

    This is what the ACH first page looks like for CS5, except for the arrows I added:

    Or just steal a professional photographers photos, slap your copyright and phone number on it, call it your own...That should work right? I think you owe me an apology please.

    Every photoshop program have a toolbox which appear left side on the window. you just select the tool and use it on the image. Hand tool is use for moving the image in the window. If you want to use this tool any time with the using of other tool just press and hold the spacebar. Brush tool is use for paint in the image. It fill any color whatever you have to selected for your image.
