Adobe Photoshop is the pioneering software in the arena of photography that allows users to enhance the quality and appeal of their pictures by editing them. Using Photoshop, one can add custom effects such as Dragan Effect to increase contrast and adding cold colors to their pictures. To apply Dragan effect to the pictures the user must choose the 'Lab Mode' and then apply curve from Image Settings to enhance the contrast. After that, one needs to choose 'RGB mode' to apply the High Pass filter. One can saturate the image in red by manipulating the hue and saturation.
