Why Photoshop is Essential for Web Designers in 2024

As a seasoned web designer, let me take a couple of minutes to explain Photoshop’s impressive toolkit of features in 2024.

I demonstrate how to achieve this in our Adobe Photoshop Box of Tricks Course. Thanks to Preserved Timber Products for allowing me to use this photograph as an example.

While opting for a professional photographer can yield optimal results, client budget constraints often limit this choice. This is where building up our own Photoshop skills comes to the fore. Leveraging a blend of Photoshop AI and traditional tools proves to be a game-changer in enhancing smartphone photos, allowing designers to elevate the quality of images within the confines of varying client budgets.

I may have many miles on the clock with Adobe Photoshop, but I can comfortably transform low-quality photographs in as little as 10-15 minutes. This is a huge cost-saver compared to organizing and managing professional photo shoots.

Enhancing Smartphone Photos with Content-Aware Tools

Today, smartphones have become our go-to cameras; the ability to refine images captured on these devices is a game-changer. With Photoshop’s content-aware tools, web designers can seamlessly adjust and improve smartphone photos. From extending cropped images to revamping backgrounds for product photography taken in less-than-ideal settings, the possibilities are endless.

The ability to manipulate elements like the sky, quickly switching from a grey, gloomy day to a bright, sunny outlook, can transform a potential problem into a serviceable photo for our site, enhancing the overall appeal of web design projects. The new photos may not be masterpieces, but they can be more than effective when dealing with clients who cannot afford a professional photographer.
