* Learn Photoshop CS6: The Basics with this book.
* Learn Photoshop Elements 12: The Basics with this book.
In this book, I’ll show you the basic use of all the features in Photoshop CS6. I’ll start with the tools, a simple way to create pictures and graphics, and use a technique called layer filters to alter images. For the most part, you’ll manipulate photographs, so I’ll teach you how to make good subjects look their best and how to make a subject fit in its surrounding area. I’ll also cover how to add a few special effects to your images and work on backgrounds.
To help you enjoy Photoshop more, I’ll give you a few techniques that can take a familiar image and transform it into something new. You’ll learn how to use layer masks, how to convert a file from a color space such as CMYK to RGB, and how to use layers to create your own patterns. All the tools to create a smiley face or a pirate are here.
I’ll help you turn an image into a picture that’s truly extraordinary. And when you’re ready to learn more, you’ll find your way to the deeper tools to work with layers and layers of layers, as well as on selections and masks. You’ll learn how to crop images and scale them up and down. Plus, you’ll discover the tools to save your work, save your work, and save your work.
Let’s start by getting acquainted with the basics of Photoshop, which are very similar in both Photoshop CS6 and Elements.
Getting Started with Photoshop
You can use Photoshop CS6 as you would any other copy of Photoshop. However, I do suggest that you explore Photoshop by creating your own projects and saving them as files.
Start by creating a new document. You can call it anything you like; for example, projects.psd. (See Chapter 8 for step-by-step instructions for creating documents, and how to save your projects as Photoshop files.)
Figure 4.1A shows the new document open.
After a document has been created, you can use the File New command. Choose the type of file you want to create, and then click OK.
You can also create a new document by selecting Photoshop Elements from the File menu and selecting New. A new file will be created. By default, a new document is opened in the Organizer and
Photoshop Elements includes a free version and a commercial version that allows more features and also provides more web-based collaboration and cloud storage.
The most recent version of Photoshop Elements is Photoshop Elements 2020.

The free Adobe XD web app is a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. While it’s mainly for making web and mobile designs, it does have some features that can also be applied to other types of graphics, such as photos and paintings. In this article we’ll look at some of the basic features you’ll need to know.
The app can be used with the computer or on your tablet. When on your computer it just acts like Photoshop, but when on your tablet you can use your finger to add new layers and objects, and make adjustments to existing layers, and even use the App

How can I run scripts from an iOS app as Fastlane
I have a Fastlane Runner.py file that can run scripts on my Mac as follows:
from Fastlane import fastlane
app = fastlane(description: “Run Scripts”)
# start building the app after all lanes have finished.
# maybe wait a bit to let other builds finish before running this one…
# optionally wait until all tasks in this lane have successfully run,
# or until a certain number of tasks have run.
When I run this as Fastlane Runner.py, everything works as expected.
When I try to run this as an iOS app, I get the following error:
Error: Could not find task “app1”. Make sure you have added it to your lane’s Tasks section in the Fastlane file, or use run
I can clearly see that the task was added to the iOS app, and the task was added as an internal task to the lane. However, when I want to run this, Fastlane is trying to run scripts in the Fastlane Runner.py script. I’m assuming the tasks.yml file for the iOS app only have the internal tasks.
Any idea how to fix this?
it worked just fine when we switched to bundle id as it’s required for the fastlane start_build_service. i.e. :
