Overall Satisfaction with Adobe PhotoShop

Our team would create our own curriculum and student materials, workbooks, posters, as well as our own marketing materials, promotional materials, and more. To do this, we often used Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop to create our own images, edit others, and more for those documents.

We also took a lot of photographs of students and staff who came to our organization each week to capture their experience and photoshop was used as needed to edit images to touch them up before put into marketing materials or sent out to the different schools and organizations who visited us.
  • Coordinating with other Adobe suite products
  • A lot of options for editing tools
  • Professional quality
  • Not easy to just “pick up and use”, definitely a learning curve and not super intuitive to the average person
  • Keyboard shortcuts are different than other products we used and have different basic commands
  • Although integrated well, Sometimes confusing to use with Adobe Illustrator as they were set up quite differently even though had a lot of the same tools it was difficult to remember where things were located
  • Better “in house” tutorials would be nice instead of looking up everything online when you don’t know how to do something
  • Photo editing
  • Image creation/logos/etc
  • Works with other Adobe products and software smoothly
  • Marketing materials look professional
  • Student materials more engaging
  • Helped with branding
  • Creation of our own tools and ideas coming to life without having to outsource
Canva is the most user friendly for sure but not as many capabilities.

I personally prefer Adobe Illustrator to Photoshop as I think it is more intuitive and can do many of the same things, but it is probably because it is the first one I learned. They are best used together.

We have used Microsoft products like publisher and such but more clunky even though easier to learn.

CAD has been used in our organization to create some images and such, but for a different type of look/use.

This is suited well in settings where people have time to be trained and learn how to use it and its capabilities. It can do a lot more than other editing products out there and is well known. If you have time to learn it and be familiar with it, it is very worthwhile. It is appropriate for making professional edits and even for personal use.
