One of the main problems of the education system is to improve the training quality of the younger generation for professional activities in the information society. At the present stage of higher education development, many methodological innovations are associated with the use of IT-based teaching. One of the areas of computer technology use in education is e-learning tools that help to better and more quickly master the most difficult sections of a particular subject. The use of computer-based teaching programs in the educational process, in particular, the Photoshop Graphic Editor program in the Delphi programming environment, allows the teaching process to differentiate, contributes to increasing the motivation and motivational readiness of students to apply acquired knowledge and skills in real life. The authors single out a comparative analysis of pedagogical literature as one of the leading methods in the study of this problem. It was revealed on its basis, that the study of the Adobe Photoshop graphics editor within the school curriculum is not considered, and attention should be paid to the pedagogical experiment that justified the use of the Photoshop Graphic Editor program in the Delphi programming environment when studying basic disciplines. The main result of the research is the development of the Photoshop Graphic Editor teaching program in the Delphi programming environment. The significance of the results obtained is in solving such a major scientific problem as the development of basic competence in the field of computer graphics by future teachers in the natural science cycle. The research results fill in the existing gaps in the theory of higher education and also contribute to the solution of questions on the motivation in learning computer sciences by students of pedagogical departments of universities.
