Give Descriptions of the tools and Pic/Symbols of Tools.

Sample Before.

1. Rectangular Marquee Tool.

The Rectangular Marquee tool is used for making rectangular selections within an

2. Elliptical Marquee Tool.

The Elliptical Marquee Tool, which is what we'll be looking at here, is another of
Photoshop's basic selection tools. It's nearly identical to the Rectangular Marquee
Tool and works much the same way.

3. Lasso Tool.
The Lasso tool make freehand, polygonal and magnetic selection.

4. Polygonal Lasso Tool.

Similar to the lasso tool, except that instead of holding your mouse button down to
draw, left-click on various points to create a selection with a series of straight edges.

5. Magnetic Lasso Tool.

This is a very handy tool for selecting areas which have reasonably well-defined
edges. Left-click at the starting point of your selection and simply move the mouse
along the edge.

6. Magic Wand Tool.

The Magic Wand tool allows you to select an area of an image based on its colour.

7. Crop Tool.
The Crop tool is to trims image.

8. Healing Brush Tool.

The Healing Brush tool paint with a sample or pattern to repair imperfections in

9. Spot Brush Tool.

The spot healing brush is the default healing tool in Photoshop and can be used to
clone areas from an image and blend the pixels from the sampled area seamlessly
with the target area.

10. Patch Tool.

The patch tool uses the same complex algorithm as the healing brush to carry out its
blend calculations, but the patch tool works with selection-defined areas instead of
a brush.

11. Red Eye Tool.

The Red Eye Tool in Photoshop removes the red eye in the flash photos. Earlier
removing red eye was a task of creating adjustment layers, adding blur, modifying
the saturation and so on. Removing red eye has been made very simple with the Red
Eye tool.

12. Clone Stamp Tool.

The clone tool is used in digital image editing to replace information for one part of a
picture with information from another part.

13. Background Eraser Tool.

The Background Eraser tool erases area to transparency by dragging.

14. Magic Eraser Tool.

The magic eraser tool erases all colours within a set tolerance. This is essentially the
same as using the magic wand and hitting Delete. Using this tool you don't need to
drag, just click once.

15. Colour Replacement Tool.

The Colour Replacement tool lets you replace a specific colour in your image. For
best results use soft brushes with this tool to help blend the colours into the original

16. Blur Tool.

The Blur tool allows you to soften hard edges and reduce detail in specific areas of
an image.

17. Sharpen Tool.

The Sharpen tool sharpens specific areas of an image.

18. Burn Tool.

The Burn Tool is really the inverse of the Dodge Tool. Instead of compensating for
overexposure it allows you to darken areas that have been underexposed.

19. Sponge Tool.

When you adjust saturation you adjust the strength of a colour. With the sponge
tool you paint with a brush to either increase the saturation of decrease it.

20. Pen Tool.

The standard Pen tool draws with the greatest precision; the Freeform Pen tool
draws paths as if you were drawing with pencil on paper, and the magnetic pen
option lets you draw a path that snaps to the edges of defined areas in your image.
