5 Photoshop tools I use the most

I’m pretty sure that no matter how good you are at using Photoshop, there's always more to learn. There are so many uses for one of Adobe’s best photo editing apps from retouching, to masking, to creating collages or even for digital drawing. Its creative uses are infinite and seemingly its only limitations are what you can come up with.

Adobe Photoshop CC is such an expansive, diverse editing suite, and there are some tools you are bound to use more than others, depending on what type of content you're creating. For example, as a graphic designer, you're more like to use the pen tool and paint bucket tool than a portrait photographer carrying out beauty retouching. All of the tools have their uses and many of the tools on there I still don't know much about, as there are so many.
