Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Photoshop
I am an instructional designer and a big bulk of my work is around creating courses and in many situations I have to edit images to make them better or highlight them in a course; this is instrumental for what I do in my department. For other departments, I sometimes support the marketing team and help them create/fix images as needed for shows.
- Has helped with supporting our marketing department
- Has help create our online training department which has been huge from a monetization perspective.
Photoshop is a far more powerful tool when it comes to precision editing, Snagit can do a lot of the things like cropping, changing colors, adding text. But Photoshop goes far beyond that, you can do 3D imaging with images, you can change them to simple gifs, you can add extra elements from other sources and then match it. When it comes to top notch picture editing nothing beats Photoshop.
Photoshop is an amazing program, and once mastered there is virtually nothing you can't do with editing, but therein lies the problem in that Photoshop is not easy to use. You would have to go through various online tutorials to learn just a fraction of what it can do, because of how long it takes to learn the product I didn't give it a 10. Of all the different editing programs this is one of the most difficult ones to learn in my opinion.

Photoshop is a powerful tool that is useful when editing photography especially if it's an old photo that has been digitized or video footage that just needs some cutting or updating. Where Photoshop suffers is that it's not an easy program to master and simple tasks that are better utilized by other programs such as powerpoint, Snagit, or even word that can do these simple edits.
