Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Photoshop

A lot of the work that I was involved with this company was identifying, targeting, and marketing to ex-patriots in Shanghai, China. A large component of the work that I performed was involved in graphical design for designing promotional materials and graphics that were to be used internally in the company. The program is not used across the whole organization, it was mostly the outreach department that had access or needed software like this. Adobe Photoshop is a very powerful platform for companies to create, modify and improve graphics in all areas. Competency in this software is incredibly relevant across a wide variety of industries.
  • Very powerful platform for editing images; much better than your standard photo editing software.
  • Ability to create graphics from scratch with the flexibility to achieve whatever goal is in mind.
  • Industry leading standard for graphical design and usefulness in photography for editing.
  • Incredibly high learning curve involved in picking up this program.
  • A very expensive investment to buy and stay updated with the most current versions.
  • Photoshop has given us the flexibility to create whatever graphics we desire without having to outsource design work to other companies; everything stays internal and consistent.
Adobe Photoshop is useful if the a lot of graphical editing is required. You should keep in mind cost of picking up a program such as this and you should also keep in mind the complexity of the program involved. This is not something that should be selected without a very clear and repeated use for it.
