Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Photoshop

We use Photoshop in all of our design work. We use it for graphic design purposes, but also in creating graphics for video projects as well. It is a tried and true software and we wouldn't be able to do everything we need to in order to succeed with out it!
  • Photoshop makes it really easy to adjust settings on photography projects
  • Photoshop is great for making graphic design pieces
  • Incorporating photography and graphic design together is very simple to do!
  • Photoshop is one of the best programs out there. I really can't think of anything it doesn't do well.
  • Photoshop has been great at enhancing our photography work.
  • Photoshop is instrumental in our graphic design pieces.
  • It is a fabulous return on investment.
I would give it a 10, but it can be a little hard to use if you have never used it before. You definitely should start out by completing some tutorials and other things to get your feet wet before you dive in on your high priority work and get more comfortable with it.
The customer support is great not only from Adobe in terms of resources, but just in general online. Photoshop is such a widely used program that you can find all kinds of tutorials, guides, and answers to your questions just by doing a simple Google search when you want to know how to do something.
Illustrator does a lot of the same things as photoshop, but I feel photoshop is more user friendly and intuitive. Illustrator works great for certain people in professional graphic design capacities, but for the average person, I feel that Adobe Photoshop is the way to go to get the job done.
Photoshop is great if you want to take your photography work to the next level. Learning to use photoshop can turn a novice photographer into someone who looks more professional. A lot of good photography work happens after the pictures are taken and what the photographer does with it after the fact.
