Adobe Photoshop is the best known graphics product on the market.The industry standardPhotoshop is essential in my workflow. When I wake up it’s the first software that I open on my pc. I work all day on my PC drawing and designing characters, and environments and props for video games and films. That’s why Photoshop is so important. The software gives me total freedom thanks to the performance and tools to draw without restrictions. Some examples include things like the actions that help you to be faster at work; the smart objects that make less destructive workflow and of course the huge list of plugins to help me to create better and faster assets in Photoshop. You can find everything that you need for Photoshop from a simple plugin that makea few color adjustments to color wheels and advanced photo filters. The resources are endless. That’s why Photoshop is for me the best software for someone who spends all day long on a PC.,The price is just great with the new subscription so i can rent the software for a year and all the updates, even the major ones like major versions (cc 2014 to cc 2015) are included in the subscription. The huge amount of resources for Photoshop The compatibility with other software The experience using photoshop is smooth,Lack of symmetry tools They need to improve the 3D texturing inside photoshop You need a good PC to run the software,10,If you work as a concept artist, you'll have the investment as fast as you work, in my case it was less than a month with the new year subscription plan.,corel painter, paint tool SAI and clip paint studio,1,1,I implement Photoshop for every project that I do.,The use for mobile devices apps,To develop tools to be faster at work,10,Yes,Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Prior Experience with the Product,Well I'd check the brush engine that the software has and the plugins.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,Less problems when the client sends files.,10,No,9,I don't remember any specific time, the support is always great.,Smart objects Actions Brush creation,Maybe if you're a total beginner, you must learn the shortcuts and how to use the layers and the blending options.,Yes, but I don't use it,10Powerful and/but TechnicalAdobe Photoshop almost makes you have better images and graphics. Due to the technical nature and toolset provided (or hidden) Photoshop makes a beginner dig around and look deep into its features for just the right utensil for the job. What ends up happening, at least for me, is that I discover new sets of editors by accident and keep them in my memory for my next project OR... apply them to what I'm working on to add some flare.,Photoshop can do just about everything, but for now going beyond the simple tasks proves to be tough. Easy logo/graphic work. Web design is easily accomplished. Filtering and adding additional details to existing projects.,Because it does so much a lot of tools are lost in menus and hidden buttons. It is far tougher than I ever thought. I use YouTube videos for solving new problems. Have a "basic" mode - I could go into assuming I won't use 90% of the advanced toolsets. Add icon support...not through an additional patch.,10,90% personal use / 10% business. For personal I work with both graphics (logos and fonts) and also with photographs from vacations. With work it is to make graphics and infocharts. ROI - Not using for any big ROI, mostly for infographics and personal site creation. We have designers in house that are more fluent, so as a very "green" user it works for the amount I need it. I still get really excited when I figure out a new tool.,Aperture,GIMP,3,4,8Adobe Photoshop - A Designer's DreamAdobe Photoshop is used on a daily basis at Issuer Direct.

Adobe Photoshop Review: "Powerful and/but Technical"

PS is a super powerful tool, but there is so much it can do that it has to have 100s of menus. Things can get a little lost. Lucky for us we can google/youtube answers on the fly. PS is something that after you have used it for a year you become familiar with the main uses that are applicable to your work, but to know everything would be impossible.

User Review: "Adobe Photoshop - A Designer's Dream"

Score 10 out of 10

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.
