Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is well suited for editing photos and creating graphics. I think a product like Adobe InDesign or Illustrator is better for creating text-heavy documents such as brochures.

Google Cloud Storage

Google Cloud Storage is ideal when you need to export large data samples from Big Query. It is also fairly good when managing a lot of users in a corporate environment. While there are other storage options available, Cloud Storage gives you enough options and flexibility to control and manage your large file sets quickly and efficiently. It is also a viable option for federated accounts. It is not the best when you need a lot of flexibility or features. Folders can't be deleted for instance, and managing or organizing folders is not its best feature. It's more a solution for simple exports and handling of larger BQ data sets.

Pros

Cons

Adobe Photoshop

  • Photoshop is not the easiest program to simply pick up and learn. It does require a learning curve to produce the best results.
  • The interface of Photoshop is unique and sometimes requires patience if one is not used its intricacies.
  • If Photoshop had some batch processing capabilities, it would be perfect.

Google Cloud Storage

  • The software sometimes doesn't play nice with certain software programs.
  • Google Cloud Storage sometimes creates conflicting copies of the same data set.
  • Google Cloud Storage's unified API generally works great but doesn't seem to be as fast as Amazon's service.

We have 11 people using the program almost every day and when needed, we pull in other free lancers to continue the work flow. We have our Adobe subscription set to auto-renew every month and we're not getting rid of that anytime soon!

Usability

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop 4.5
Based on 6 answers
The overall usability of Adobe Photoshop is a nine. I say this because if you know what you are doing, great. If not, there are more than enough tutorials or examples online that can help you get on your way. Upon first glance, it can be intimidating, but you get adjusted quickly after a few trial runs.

Google products are generally very user-friendly. Google Cloud Storage is no different. Management of Google Cloud Storage is very easy, with no programming experience required. In fact, managing Google Cloud Storage could be done by almost anyone who is not too technically challenged. Usability is about as easy as it gets.

Reliability and Availability

Adobe Photoshop is very reliable, but is never 100%. There have been times when Adobe Photoshop has had trouble opening, but nothing a little computer restart couldn't fix. I use Adobe Photoshop on a Mac for both work and at home on a daily basis, and I would be lost without it.

Speed can be an issue when you are dealing with large files for large format printing or billboards. When working on web images, speed is not an issue.

For performance i give Google Cloud Storage 10 of 10 on performance because even though there are other softwares that do exactly the same thing as Google Drive, it still works exceptionally well. It is very fast, and and far as integration, the only software I have used with it that integrated was Google Docs, and of course it integrates perfectly.

I give them a strong nine, only for the fact that there is always room for improvement. I have never had an issue when dealing with customer support. They have always been very helpful and attentive towards my needs and requests. If a representative can not immediately give you an answer, they will do their best to solve the problem, and get back to you with a quickness.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Photoshop

There are other photo editors out there that cost much less than Photoshop. Some are even free. But what keeps me coming back to Photoshop is the depth of features and the fact that they do usually have at least one new killer feature added with each upgrade. It's a professional level tool - simple as that.

Google Cloud Storage

I tried a couple other alternatives but like GCS a lot, mainly because it's easy to understand. It practically follows the same idea and structure of many other Google products. Amazon is good, it's fast and cheap but the UI is something that confused me a lot. Additionally, I don't really have too much time to learn a new platform every month, so I keep to search tools that are easy to manage. And of course, scalable.

Return on Investment

Adobe Photoshop

  • Our social media posts look excellent and Photoshop has played a large part in making this happen.
  • We use stock photography and end up changing the color of t-shirts and Photoshop does an excellent job of this.
  • I even design our Web site layouts and e-mail blasts in Photoshop (and InDesign) and we have seen a good ROI on my designs.

Google Cloud Storage

  • As my usage was mostly for an educational purpose, I cannot really comment on the ROI. But, google cloud storage has definitely served my purpose for choosing it as a place to store data collectively for the team.
  • One of non-financial ROI that I can think of is that I now have a much better understanding on how cloud systems work due the time I spent on using google cloud storage.
  • A lot of the world's best companies are using google cloud storage to deploy their applications so I do believe that there is quite a good positive impact on their ROI.
