Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop is our go-to image editor for our Marketing and Design department at the university website, image editing, etc. Photoshop is used across campus on an as-needed basis depending on user and department needs.
- Adobe Photoshop is the best image editor on the market. We can easily update image quality for the website and print publications using Photoshop.
- Photoshop is by-far the best program for image optimization for the web. With multiple tools to use for the best quality without large file-size, I couldn't do without it.
- Although I have no major changes suggested for Photoshop, I would love to have images open with a smaller screen instead of taking up the entire screen upon opening.
- Photoshop it not a program for the inexperienced. I have been using the product for almost 20 years, and still learn techniques that are new to me.
- With the ease of use, we can edit images quickly to the best available quality (look and feel) needed for our website.
- Images can easily be updated and saved directly to our server with administrative rights.
- The program is more expensive than many image editing programs. However, the end-result for experienced users brings the best quality available. Photoshop does have a learning curve.
As an experienced Photoshop user, I am happy that they product is updated upon each new release. The internet is full of online tutorials to assist with learning new techniques.
I have been an Adobe Photoshop user for many, many years, since the mid-90's. I am always excited for an upgrade to Photoshop. Adobe has greatly improved over the years in keeping with trends and ease-of-use. While there is a learning curve, those who have experience with photo editing will find Photoshop with great capabilities.
Adobe Photoshop is THE editor for images. For building flat files with a limited number of colors, there are more efficient programs in the Adobe collection. Because Photoshop is an advanced program, I would recommend the product to only users on our campus with the knowledge and expertise to use the program.

Adobe Photoshop Support
At times, the support at Adobe can be a bit frustrating with the language barrier. The support team seems to be reading from a script and will repeat everything you say back to them several times. Luckily, I have not had to use tech support with Adobe software but a few times.
