Photoshop changed the way photography was captured, stored, shared and disseminated. Physical medium was replaced by electronic signals and photographic editing shifted from being accessible only by the well trained and experienced, to just about anyone with a computer and some software….

Understanding some of the principles and fundamentals of Photoshop is the best place to start.
