Overall Satisfaction with Adobe PhotoShop

Photoshop is used more or less daily.

It is used for:
  • Editing of photos.
  • Design of graphics.
Most of our initial editing work is in Adobe Lightroom (for speed) with more complicated edits taking place in Photoshop.

Our design work mainly relates to template design for our event work. These are typically branded templates for companies we work with.

Photoshop allows us to quickly make edits as needed.
  • Content Aware Fill - removing objects simply and speedily. There has been a recent good upgrade to this function.
  • Design - far simpler to use than Illustrator and we don't need the full vector editing capabilities.
  • Creation of overlays, etc. - in PNG format. Simple and quick.
  • Video - after a recent update it no longer allows importation of video. This is well documented and a massive failing.
  • Editing tools for photography could be easier to access, especially for new users of the program.
  • Changes to the workspace mean it isn't as clean as before with lots of nannying prompts appearing
  • I use it most days, so very positive. It is an essential tool.
  • Problems with video mean I need to use Premiere Pro which is too complicated for my needs!
  • Integration with Lightroom is great.
Affinity Photo is a great alternative to Photoshop especially if you are on a budget. It actually has a better interface for photo editing than Photoshop. For people that don't want to pay a subscription to Adobe then Affinity would be the natural choice although it isn't as good in some respects.

It's great for complicated edits and some design work.

Lightroom is far more efficient if you are conducting bulk editing but as you can edit in Photoshop from Lightroom this integration works very well.

The video problems are a major hinderance! Many people don't think of Photoshop as being a video editor but it is good for simple edits - very easy to use.

Photoshop isn't great for 360 images, Affinity Photo is much better.
