Adobe PhotoShop

[Adobe] Photoshop is well suited, at times when the user has to develop something from scratch. It is very advantageous, to provide an "all in one" solution for retouching, manipulating, drawing vectors, creating promotional posters. However, it is less appropriate, in the case of 3D rendering, and high-sized files, where the application turns to be laggy.

KeyShot

KeyShot can do some really amazing things as far as product renderings. You can turn simple 3D models into realistic images in a very short amount of time. I wish there were a way to manipulate the geometry once imported into KeyShot. The software allows this user to move geometry but not change its shape or form.

Pros

Adobe PhotoShop

  • Brush customization. There are many available brushes for illustration, and each can be customized to fit the needs of your specific style.
  • Integration with other Adobe products. It is essential that the images I create be accessible in Adobe Indesign and Illustrator, and [Adobe] Photoshop can be placed and edited easily within those programs.
  • Advanced editing. The possibilities for editing photos [are] endless, with new features being added constantly.

KeyShot

  • Keyshot has a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy to use for quick renderings.
  • Through Keyshot's viewport, you can see real-time changes when replacing or adding textures to a 3D model.
  • The new Keyshot 8 comes with volumetric features such as fog that can add depth to your image making process without having to manually do it later in another program.

Cons

Adobe PhotoShop

  • PhotoShop is a specialized tool with a learning curve. The controls are sometimes cryptic to the unimmersed.
  • The licensing model for PhotoShop and the Creative Suite can sometimes be cost-prohibitive and hard to justify deploying.
  • There are lots of overlaps in the Adobe Creative Suite that make it difficult to know if PhotoShop, Lightroom, PhotoShop Lite, etc. are the right tools for the job.

  • Floating licensing install is troublesome

We get a lot of use out of this software. It's vital for work with production in our industry and has a lot of cross-functionality - creating social media images, retouching photos, editing photos, creating gradients, and more. It's pretty fuss-free in that we haven't had to reach out to support and the program hasn't crashed on us. We are trained on the software (so again, this isn't for beginners), but for detail-oriented designers and creatives like ourselves - it's a no-brainer.

Usability

Adobe PhotoShop

Adobe PhotoShop 9.4
Based on 13 answers
I've used it for a long time and would consider myself a Pro user at this point. I know where everything I need is, have custom actions set up to make common actions faster, and have my workflows automated so much that everything is easy. Occasionally, a new version of Photoshop will change a common usability feature which will slow things down for a short time before I'm able to adjust, but generally I really like my setup. However, if you're new to Photoshop, it is likely going to take you a while to figure out how you can best use the features.

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.

While I never contacted Adobe directly, there is so much content out there in the form of YouTube videos, Lynda/LinkedIn learning that almost any issue, including bugs, can be worked around (and this method is generally faster as there's no turnaround time involved).

Honestly, I've only needed customer support a couple of times. One time was a question about licensing which their customer service explained very well and offered just the help I was looking for

I took a course so it really helped. I didn’t take the course until much later after beginning to use it, so I wish work would have sent me right off the bat. It would have alleviated a lot of frustratinon

Alternatives Considered

Adobe PhotoShop

Canva is a great tool for creating infographics and it's free with limited options. Adobe Illustrator CC and Adobe InDesign are much more suited for creating infographics, however, I still selected Adobe PhotoShop primarily because of my familiarity with all of the tools and hotkeys. There are always workarounds from with Adobe PhotoShop, and I just haven't taken the time to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator CC as effectively.

KeyShot

Keyshot is simpler and more intuitive compared to Octane. That being said, Octane is far less expensive and can take advantage of a GPU making it more versatile.

Return on Investment

Adobe PhotoShop

  • Saved our company thousands of dollars by editing in house.
  • Has given us the ability to do things on the fly and get projects done faster.
  • Having the original .psd files saved has given us the ability to go back and reuse and update photos and graphics instead of starting all over again.

  • Faster approval times from client
