Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is being used to edit photos. It is used by me, the photographer, as well as my editor. We use it to make the photos look more professional, rather than give someone the raw, unedited images. This in turn makes the consumer of our product happier with the end results.
  • Great spot correction and use of clone stamping.
  • Lots of versatility in what you can accomplish with it.
  • Excellent curves abilities to adjust lighting.
  • The cloud-based system is ridiculous. Consumers have expressed this and they have not done anything about it.
  • The price is pretty high and can seem out of reach for many companies and nonprofits.
  • It is hard to use at first until you get used to it. There is a big learning curve.
  • Makes people want to pay more for photos because they look more professional.
  • If you don't get enough work, the fact you have to pay monthly can be detrimental.
  • Makes my business look more professional when having the ability to use this product.
  • Gimp
I downloaded Gimp because it was free and I needed it on a computer that I was unable to install PS on. Gimp was terrible. I would only ever use it in an emergency. It does not compare to PS in even the slightest. No other product I have used has compared to PS.
Photoshop is definitely useful for photo editing and some graphic design. Photoshop is definitely the best for editing and getting rid of blemishes, etc. when compared to Lightroom. However, I would not use it primarily for graphic design because the features are not as well equipped. For that, I would instead use Illustrator.
