Adobe Photoshop is a widely used tool for Graphic Designing across our entire organization. It provides a complete platform for a user to develop an entire art from a blank canvas. In contrast to existing software for graphic designing, [Adobe] Photoshop provides complete freedom to the user to develop each pixel of the canvas in integration with all the creative cloud apps. All the problems, related to graphic designing can be addressed with the help of Adobe Photoshop. This includes creation and correction brochures, social media promotions, [and] professional graphics.
  • Creating posters
  • Creating logos
  • Tuning pictures
  • Expensive - It is too expensive to buy Photoshop alone, and hence leading the user to purchase the entire Creative Cloud Package though he/she is not even aware of half of those apps.
  • High System Spec - Requires high system specifications to run the application smoothly, and to use it at its best.
  • Process lag - When it comes to large-sized files, the application becomes laggy taking much time even to render a single layer.
[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.

We use the Adobe PhotoShop application with the Graphic Design department of our team. We use it for making edits to product photography, infographics on product pages, and other graphics.
  • Image Editing
  • Background Removal
  • Masking and Painting
  • Some fonts don't export very well and leave a blurry text on the image.
  • The Spot Healing Brush is AI controlled, and does a good job most of the time, but it will sometimes edit in a non-intuitive way.
Adobe PhotoShop is wonderful for photo editing. The precision tools are incredibly helpful. I've been using Adobe PhotoShop for 5 years. If you are going to create a lot of infographics with text, I would recommend using Illustrator or Indesign more. The vector-based design seems to work better with the text implementation. My experience has allowed me to use Adobe PhotoShop for infographics, but from a beginner level, it's easier to just start with Illustrator.

Adobe Photoshop is being used across the whole organization as a part of Adobe Creative Cloud, which our company is subscribed to. As a designer, Adobe Photoshop is the standard for photo editing and illustration and is an essential part of my job. It is a program recognized by most companies, which makes it easy to share files and send things to print.
  • 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.
  • Large learning curve. It takes a long time to learn, an eternity to master. I have used it for 10+ years, and I still am learning new things it's capable of.
  • Busy UI. As the program updates over time, [...] tools and features will [often] move, which buries them, and I can't find them again. It can also be frustrating when a rogue key is pressed, which switches around the layout with no indicator for how to get it back to how it was.
  • Clunky automation. There are times I need to batch-create something or batch-edit, and it is never intuitive how to get through the process. I always have to refer to tutorials because the features are never where I think they are.
Adobe Photoshop is great for photo editing and illustration. While a beginner can use it and learn the inner workings of the program, it is definitely an advanced tool with many more features and abilities than other similar products. It would not be well suited for anyone that has simple edits they want to make or [doesn't] have the time [and] dedication that it takes to learn.

I rely on photoshop to cater to my organizations digital creative production needs like UI/ UX, website designing, prototyping, wireframing, emailers, banners, ebrochures, certificates, image editing and illustration. Adobe Photoshop helps me render quality output seamlessly and maintain my production pipeline much more efficiently with the help of the cloud suite & other application integration.
  • Website designing
  • Wireframes
  • Graphic illustration
  • Image editing
  • Auto creation of GIFs and short videos by stitching photos.
  • Pre-defined templates for creating abstract images.
  • Option for auto removal of objects from background.
Photoshop is more suitable for creating user interface design, social media posts, emailers, image editing, color correction, photo correction, and other digital marketing materials. For creating scalable vector graphics or high quality artwork it is not so well suited. Options like Sketch, InDesign & Illustrator are the best options in such scenarios.

Adobe PhotoShop is being used across our organization in very specialized settings. While it is not widely used, that is because the skill set required to use it is specialized. It specifically addresses the problem or opportunity of graphic design needs and communication design that goes beyond your typical PowerPoint with image stuffed in. It is also widely used by our commercial and digital teams.
  • Layered images: This helps us manipulate specific portions of images without damaging the original. Layers are exceptionally useful.
  • Pre-measured templates for common outputs (banner ads, social images, etc.).
  • High quality image design and manipulation for multiple platforms and dpi counts.
  • 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.
Adobe PhotoShop is a standard for creative teams and it is particularly well-suited for distributed design teams who like to share creative projects in the creative cloud. It is excellent for layered graphics and more advanced professional work, but it is also a solid tool for novice designers who want to professionalize their work in a meaningful way. PhotoShop Express is a good option in some situations, but there is no real replacement for good work done in PhotoShop—so much so that PhotoShop is as much a verb as it is a product.

When it comes to photo editing, PhotoShop is the first thing that comes to mind. It offers tonnes of features be it from basic photo manipulation like cropping, cutting, and pasting to advanced manipulations like liquify, image retouching, masking, warping. PhotoShop has a very clean interface and is highly customizable, one can customize it according to his/her workflow. It also supports plugins from third-party vendors that make editing super easy. Many advanced photo manipulations and touches can be done through this. It gives you immense control over your image. Also, color correction and color grading are just awesome. Keyboard shortcuts make your workflow fluid. Once you get used to the software you won't switch to any other one. It is based on the layering system that makes photo editing easier and error-free. Along with the Adobe Subscription, you'll also get Adobe Stock, which offers you tonnes of photos that you can use for practice and it's just great. I can say PhotoShop is the best photo editing software presently in the market PERIOD. Just go for it :)
  • Image Retouching
  • Liquify
  • Photo distortion, Warping
  • Image Filters
  • Color correction and color grading
  • Subscription Cost
  • Optimization with hardware, especially with Windows Devices
  • Different Work Profile features
Adobe PhotoShop supports various file formats. Color grading and color correction in Photoshop are just awesome. Love the layering system (Basic but important and should be in every Photo editing software - gives you tonnes of features: layer masks, layer stylization, blending modes, and a lot more.) Also, the interface is clean and easy to understand for beginners also. It is highly customizable which is very good. The overall work environment with Adobe Creative Cloud gives you a very good experience. (Expensive but worth it)

It is capable of handling complex tasks well. Our organization uses this software to create advertisements and graphics for social media platforms in order to market itself. To get the most out of this software, you need a bit of expertise. Learning and creativity are at the heart of Adobe Photoshop. The program offers all the necessary tools to add glitter to our projects. As a result of Adobe Photoshop, our team gained new skills and is now more productive and able to generate more business.
  • It can edit and manipulate any kind of picture and graphics
  • It maintains and produces high quality images.
  • The integration with other Adobe software is good.
  • It consumes a lot of RAM, so in order to use effectively a person need high specification desktop.
  • A bit Expensive for SMB's
  • The multi layer features sometime create confusion while editing.
This software is widely used in the industry because of its capability to handle and manipulate design and graphics according to industry standards. We don't need to look around for help all the complex tasks can be handled in this software all alone. The only requirement is skill and creativity. And the regular update by Adobe makes this software work smoothly which even increases the productivity of a team.

Photoshop is our one-stop solution for all kinds of design needs, no matter if it's photo editing, UI/UX design, graphic design, motion posters, banners, or any other design work we need. Unlike the competition, it is not restricted to just photo editing. The software is capable enough to do UI/UX design and a lot of other things. Over the years it has become the most powerful and feature-full tool, plus it has all the bells and whistles you need to get your design-related tasks done. I can't think of any other tool that is as powerful and as capable as PhotoShop.
  • Raw photo editing and photo manipulation
  • User interface design and wireframes (user experience)
  • Digital painting and matte painting
  • Social media banners / web banners
  • Any sort of digital graphics design
  • Photoshop's 3-D features
  • More tools for making vectors/shapes
  • Photo filters and effects
For photo editing and manipulation etc, PhotoShop is unmatched and has the best features to tackle the task. That's the reason it's industry standard. For UI design and graphic design, it could add some more tools to make it more powerful and easy to use, especially with its vector creating/handling capabilities.

Photoshop has been implemented to assist in developing advertising, assets for animation and videos, designing branding, concept materials and more. Acting as the entirety of the creative department, it is necessary to have a powerful, flexible, and consistent design platform. The ability to work seamlessly with other Adobe programs without special exporting is a major time-saver.
  • Very few glitches or poorly designed features
  • Massive tool set
  • Integration with other software
  • Needs consistency with other software i.e. same hotkeys or expected behavior between tools in Ps and Ai
  • universal Ps files instead of special .psb for large formats
  • Migration of 3rd party plugins on update
For very basic designs or limited need, other software or freeware could be suitable. Getting beyond the basic, you quickly run out of flexibility, power, and function: this is where photoshop comes in. The ability to work in multiple color modes and formats is a must when communicating and working with print shops, web designers, etc.

We are using Adobe PhotoShop for many reasons. New product images, videos, brochures, magazines, flyers, email campaigns and more. The program is essential for our business to create our marketing campaigns and also to create clean images that we are using for our ads. Over the last years we have gone from one to at least 5 internal users and it seems like we would not be able to create any marketing without it.
  • Graphics
  • Magazines
  • Advertising
  • Color correction
  • More effects
  • Simplifying tasks
  • More features and tutorials
I think it is great if you have to correct the color of images - even though I wished it had more option. Working with layers is also amazing and helps to create authentic ads with our products in different environments. With a green screen it is also even more effective to color correct product images.

Photoshop is a very important part of my photography workflow. It is used as a major step in giving my photos a finished and stylized look. I also use it to correct minor imperfections in lighting as well as cleaning up backgrounds. I use it in secondary parts of my business to create training materials, books, and web graphics.
  • Cleaning: PS is particularly well suited for cleaning surfaces, backgrounds, and even clothing. The clone and stamp tools are far more advanced than other options.
  • Organization: Using PS within the Adobe ecosystem makes organizing projects as well as your body of work quite easy.
  • Panels: The layout of PS is completely customizable using panels. I have separate setups for editing, lighting, and retouching. These can be recalled with one click.
  • Bloating: I have noticed that in later versions the program itself is becoming a little heavier and slower to open. It is also becoming a little more resource-intensive.
  • Subscription: While I love the subscription concept to make upgrades easier, there are few options for subscribing. I would also like to see fewer frequent updates.
If you are a professional photographer there is no equal when it comes to editing photos. Photoshop is particularly well suited for high-end retouching and mixed media workflows. The retouching tools such as clone and stamp combined with the ability to do non-destructive editing on a layered canvas makes this a powerful tool in a retouching workflow.
In my mixed media projects, combining Bridge with Photoshop is an absolute necessity. It is very easy to move projects around from application to application as well as pull media in from other projects. The seamless integration between applications allows me to update a File in any of their applications in real-time. This increases my speed to delivery dramatically.

A big help in editing photos. From raw copy to a majestic photo finish. Lots of improvement. From its original version way back. With photoshop enhancing photos has been become so easy nowadays. Even we can put additional layouts, design on a simple photo will become more artistic.
  • From raw photo to great copy.
  • Additional features or designs.
  • Size of version.
Photo become easy nowadays because of editing. You can take a raw copy and edit thru photoshop and the photo will become lively. Most of the artists nowadays are very professional in editing. Even in smart mobiles we can install Photoshop app and edit old photos.
  • no training
I based my rating of 10 to it's benefits, functionality and uses. Since then Adobe Photoshop has been very updated, they update base on the market needs. They innovate base on the needs and wants of the market, they always update their software and the application versions.

Photoshop is one of the best design programs ever. It is the best program for every designer. There is no alternative to it in this field. It is enough for me to design all my images, advertisements, cards, and everything related to our advertising.
  • Designing prints for advertisements, personal cards, brochures and pop-ups.
  • Corporate logos.
  • Please provide lighter copies because modern copies are sometimes heavy.
It is the best, but I hope the Android version will be developed with the same capabilities as the desktop versions.

We used it as the Growth Team to create posts, banners and other marketing materials. It is helping us to solve several things like Social media posting, Ads campaigns, Website material, etc.. Along with this, we use Illustrator, After Effects, and Premiere Pro I don´t think other departments used it right now.
  • Social Media Posting
  • It does not use every graphic resources
  • Fast to execute
  • Easy interface (when you used it for a time)
  • An "Easy Mode" for inexpert users
  • More preset forms
  • More preset effects
For a Social Media campaign! You can design a lot of graphics material with Photoshop to showcase your products and services I don't think a scenario where Photoshop is not appropriate, except when you are working with vectors, in which case, you should use Illustrator. But for everything else, Adobe Photoshop is the gold standard.

We use Adobe Photoshop for making Beautiful Banners and Photos of the Client's Company for marketing. Photoshop makes the photo look the most attractive so we design background for our GUI Softwares and also design a Logo for the company. It does not have any business problems expect it's not that easy to use.
  • Photo Editing
  • Photo Merging
  • Image Filtering
  • Beautiful Themes can be created
  • Best for Designing any GUI
  • Documentation.
  • Difficulty in finding the tools.
  • Uses a lot of RAM
Designing pamphlets for marketing purposes for the events, exhibitions, etc. Easier design a Logo for a freelancer. It's also a good platform to edit a picture for having it as a Profile Photo on different social media platforms. GUI Developers can use it for creating a basic design for their Software.

I've used Photoshop for over 24 years and still use it today, although not for designing websites anymore, for that we use Adobe XD. We use Photoshop now as it is meant to be used; for adjusting photos (lighting, color, size) ready to export for a website or in a printed item.
  • Setting levels (highlights) to images look great when printed
  • Industry standard for photo manipulation
  • Batch image processing
  • Could provide a more simple version for new users
  • Could be rebuilt to increase speed
Useful for manipulating images, whether that's setting the highlights so images are not blown out in the whites, or for adjusting the colors. Sometimes an image will be too warm (red) or too cold (blue). You can use Photoshop to reduce these colors individually and improve the tonal range of an image. It's not suited to designing websites anymore, use Adobe XD.

I use Photoshop for various reasons including, photo editing and retouching, graphics, making animated gifs, and, creating video assets. Photoshop has come in handy when needing photos for our websites. I am able to edit and resize them as well as export them for the web which helps reduce file sizes. Having this tool at my fingertips, allows me to make edits and graphics on the fly without having to hire someone else and wait until they are available. I use photoshop on a daily basis.
  • Photo Retouching
  • Photo Editing
  • Blending Images
  • File resizing and optimization
  • Animated Gifs
  • Wish I could create vectors within Photoshop
  • Wish some of the functions were set up the same as other Adobe apps.
I believe Photoshop shop is great for most things photo. From basic things like adjusting exposure, resizing, and changing the temperature, to more semi-advanced things like removing backgrounds and objects from photos, to so really advanced stuff, it has so many options and features for editing photos. If you're just editing basic stuff like exposure, highlights, shadows, and things, Photoshop is overkill and you can just use a free app or something. If you need more capabilities and advanced features then Photoshop is a great option. I do not recommend it for creating scalable graphics. You will want Adobe Illustrator so you can create vectors.

Adobe Photoshop is one of the most versatile tool out there. If you know how, you can do a lot with it. It is a easy to learn, hard to master kind of tool. But once you do master it, the possibilities are endless. You can do graphic designs, typography, photo editing & retouching, animations, layouting etc.
  • Image editing and retouching
  • Illustrations and digital painting
  • Brush Customizations
  • Allows unlimited layers
  • Integration with other Adobe Softwares
  • Works only on Pixels and not on vectors.
  • It has a very high learning curve and is not beginner friendly.
  • Starts lagging as the file size gets bigger and more layers are added.
  • Works on a subscription model which is also priced quite high.
Adobe Photoshop is widely used in the ed-tech industry be it illustrations for production, graphics for marketing, or infographics for sales. It is one software that can handle any pixel related tasks and is considered a market standard. Put on your creative cap and master the software cause the possibilities are endless. On top of that Adobe brings out timely updates and adds new features every now and then which you didn't even think you needed but you're glad it's here now.

I use Adobe PhotoShop as a family photographer for advanced and creative editing of images. Basic edits are done with Adobe Lightroom but anything that requires advanced editing, such as skin touchups, head swaps, removing distracting elements, etc. we use Photoshop. It is a very powerful tool that we are constantly using and learning more about its functionality.
  • Head swaps - replacing a better face/facial expression from a different image
  • Skin corrections - blurring, sharpening, contouring
  • Removing distracting elements from the background
  • It is a huge program that I am constantly learning about its features. For the most part whenever I think 'I wish I could do x with Photoshop' I'll Google it and find that it can be done, and I'll learn how. I find that using Photoshop is a constant learning process.
  • I dislike the switch from buying the program outright to paying a monthly fee for using the Adobe suite
I think that Lightroom is much more suited for batch processing basic edits such as cropping, basic color corrections, contrast, brightness. It is very tedious to try to use Photoshop for those aspects of editing. Photoshop excels at advanced editing techniques where images can be greatly enhanced by creative processes and individual hand-editing. I definitely use actions to speed up some of the editing processes. That being said, I strongly dislike the use of Photoshop to alter body images - whether enlarging/puffing up areas of the body or shrinking other areas. However, that is not a flaw in the product but how it is used and promotes unhealthy body image in society.

<p>As an agency that works with multiple global corporate clients, it is essential for our design team to deliver top notch designs that please our clients and can deliver on their core marketing messages wether through social media or outdoor billboard. </p><p>To achieve that, our designers selected Adobe Photoshop as the main software to assist them in performing their work. </p><p>This powerful platform offers them with the tool necessary to create all shapes of designs, from simple object cutouts, to complex layers of designs and masking. In addition, over the years, we've developed many templates that are easy to use and allowed our non-designer employees to create social media posts on the go, without the need for extensive knowledge of Photoshop. </p>
  • Quite easy to learn, and the internet is filled with free tutorials
  • Masking objects allows our designers to edit photos without risking loss or corruption of design ( it allows us to cut out unnecessary parts and test creative concepts and filters)
  • One of the first platforms to innovate layered designing, and one of the most robust with features related to it
  • While it is easy to find tutorials, applying them can be slightly overwhelming for new users due to the high number of tools and features within the programme. It would definitely benefit from having a beginner's friendly custom interface mode.
  • Adobe creative suite can be very expensive, especially if you are looking to use 1 or 2 softwares out of the bundle.
Knowledge of using Adobe Photoshop is essential for any designer whether they are looking to work in corporate companies or as a freelancer.
This robust tool will allow any designer to shine and to showcase their creative talent with ease. And non-designer marketers should also have basic knowledge of the platform as it is an important weapon to add to their arsenal.

Adobe PhotoShop is being used by our organization for creating marketing materials and editing photos of the products we sell. It allows us to do in-house editing, thus saving money and not having to hire an external marketing firm. Currently, it is only used by our marketing department, but Adobe PhotoShop is a tool that anyone can use.
  • editing
  • creating documents
  • adjusting photos
  • Easier menu would be nice
  • a more user friendly navigation
Adobe PhotoShop is well suited for many scenarios like a small business that sells products. You can use a fairly inexpensive camera and light setup but then utilizing Adobe PhotoShop's editing features, you can make it look as if it was taken by a professional photographer. If you have an extensive catalog, Adobe PhotoShop may not be the most efficient product.

The whole office uses Adobe PhotoShop. It's really the image editing program of choice. Adobe PhotoShop would be used from preparing images for the web to editing pictures for customized apps. There's no other image editing program that can compete with Adobe PhotoShop's feature-rich program.
  • Adobe PhotoShop does a great job in scaling & adding resolution to images
  • Adobe PhotoShop offers layers to separate various objects placed on images
  • Adobe PhotoShop provides an excellent gradient tool automatically generating color from one range to another
  • Adobe PhotoShop needs to work on the creation of Text objects. There should be a way to provide a more enhance Text font style appearance within the program.
  • Adobe PhotoShop is missing an ARC object drawing tool. Having a CIRCLE object drawing tool is just not enough.
  • The current version of Adobe PhotoShop for some reason dropped the additional Image Size & Canvas Size commands when right mouse clicking on the document tab. The only way now to access these commands is from the Image menu.
Adobe PhotoShop is the perfect image editing software for situations where there are a number of various edits on an image. These edits can then be placed on separate layers so you can always come back to make further changes on those Layers which can even be turned off or left on for printing or saving as individual images.

Adobe PhotoShop is almost exclusively used by our Marketing Department to assist with creative development. This includes whitepapers, digital ads, sell-sheets, and any other materials that may require images. It is mostly used by our in-house designer, but may also be used by other Marketing Team members during the content development process. Photos\Shop is typically used for image editing.
  • Photo editing.
  • Advertisement development for print & online images.
  • Adding consistent design details.
  • Finding ways of making image sharing easier. With high-resolution images, the file sizes can be quite large and difficult to share with team members.
  • More integration with other Adobe products make it easier to move from editing an image in photoshop to getting it into Illustrator and visa versa.
  • More instruction for beginners with tutorials on how to do something embedded into the application.
If you need to do any image editing, PhotoShop is an extremely powerful tool. Although there are other photo-editing apps, learning PhotoShop can allow you to do more with your images. This can then positively impact your brand image through better creative assets.

As an organization that makes a majority of our graphics for digital and print media in house, we use Adobe Photoshop regularly as one of the tools in our box for creative design. From quick and easy slides to more complex graphics projects Photoshop has been a huge win for our organization.
  • Adobe Photoshop is an industry standard for graphic design and does its job well.
  • For editing PDFs, JPGs, or creating graphics from scratch, Photoshop works like a charm.
  • Photoshop has a selection of quality tools and is easily customizable to suit your work style.
  • There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to Photoshop that can cause new users to struggle.
  • Sometimes Photoshop rolls out new updates that feel like they can throw off workflow until you get used to them.
  • Photoshop doesn't work natively in Vectors which can be an issue for scaling graphics.
Photoshop is a phenomenal graphic design program that, once learned, can be come a quick and easy go to. For creating graphics from scratch, or doing a quick edit, Photoshop is great.

Because you can't work in Vectors, sometimes Photoshop lags behind other programs and you can quickly end up with pixelated or blurry images.
