How to draw on photos in photoshop

First, after you upload a photo, you need to create a layer that will be that same photo. Please note that in the “Layers” menu a loaded photo is displayed with a “lock” - this will not allow us to perform any actions with a photo. Therefore, we double-click on our “closed” layer, the “New layer” window will appear. Set the parameters, if any, and click "OK".

The second step is to choose a tool with which we will draw on the photo. Depending on what you want to draw, you can choose different tools. A pencil, brush, color replacement or patterned stamp and many other tools can help in drawing a wide variety of objects.

Once we have decided on the tool, you can start drawing. This is done using the selected tool and the left mouse button. If you need to describe some specific part without harming the rest of the photo, you can simply select the desired fragment with the Area and quietly draw inside it.

Any action can be undone by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Z the desired number of times.
