Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is an integral component of our curriculum, both as a professional education facility that provides instruction to junior and senior high schools in digital media communications. We use Photoshop to create system marketing materials that our company publishes for distribution in local secondary schools for registration. Photoshop is an important program that our students study as part of our curriculum in graphic design and manipulation. Finally, students work for local organizations and companies, create advertisements, posters, leaflets, brochures, digital advertising and banners, video graphics and much more in our class. Photoshop is our first (and mostly last) pause when it comes to making graphics or picture editing.
  • Strongly practical & incredibly flexible — Photoshop helps users to complete a LOT of photo reconstruction, graphic design, development on vectors (such as the design of logo), and digital painting ... also animation.
  • Market Standard — Adobe Photoshop is one of the leading graphics editing tools in the market.
  • Reactive and robust — Photoshop operates very well. I seldom experience device failure problems or crashes. They do what they do, and they do it well.
  • Photoshop is a complex app — the basic tools and features that novice users can only find in the surface of Photoshop. Complete simple image editing (for example redimensioning, cutting and painting) can be easy to pick up easily, but most of the features require time to understand and master — which can be daunting for some people.
  • Photoshop is not a software you can purchase. The Adobe Creative Cloud/Subscriptions Service. In its Innovative Cloud apps, Adobe integrates PS with subscription-based software. It will be perfect for beginners and experts – newcomers can only pay for (monthly) what they need and experts will never have to think about missing new apps because updates are included with the package. However, I have talked to a lot of consumers who just require a working software update, and want to buy a software license, who are completely dissatisfied.
  • Photoshop takes up valuable hard disk space, the machine itself and the images in Photoshop. Plan to host this program with a big hard disk with plenty of memory space.
  • Without this program, I couldn't work, easy and straightforward. There's just nothing else can compare with that meaningfully.
  • This is a bargain at the prices of Adobe's Digital Server, like Camera Shop and Lightroom.
  • Any photographer will tell you, there are an astonishingly high number of people out there trying to retouch themselves.
Photoshop is the benchmark for manipulation of graphics — other software always tries to mimic what PS can do, but can not produce it entirely. Although good alternatives do not give Photoshop the rich properties and seamless functionality of applications, such as GIMP, Corel Paint, Pixlr and others. In addition to Photoshop, we use Adobe Illustrator, as Illustrator is particularly based on the editing of vector graphics for logo designs. But Photoshop can also get us through if the Illustrator wasn't an option.
The customer's services are outstanding! However, sometimes they take a long time in response to customers' question and inquiry about the product which causes frustration for some users.
