Image editing & graphic design software for Windows & MacOS

About Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is an image editing and graphic designing software that helps businesses streamline photo editing and compositing processes and create digital paintings and animations. The artificial-intelligence (AI)-enabled platform lets designers invite external stakeholders to edit documents and share projects via live streaming functionality.

Features of Adobe Photoshop include project management, collaboration, configurable workflows, offline access, data storage management, analytics, and more. It enables users to automatically synchronize presets such as shapes, brushes, styles, swatches, patterns, and gradients across desktop devices. The application also helps administrators view previous versions of documents, create photo collages, transform shapes using a custom shape tool, and remove objects from photos.

Adobe Photoshop lets employees adjust image colors, remove minor blemishes, add monochromatic effects, and darken or lighten the grey values of specific colors for enhancing the image contrast. It allows employees to create drawings with chalk, markers, spray paint, felt-tip pens, and various other types of brushes.

Great for image editing and graphic design

Reviewed on 26/8/2022

Pros

I love the features, it has everything you need, finding and hiring editors for this software is really easy since almost all graphic designers use it, and image editors!

Cons

It is very hard to learn without any guides, but watch a few tutorials and it will go awesome!

Over all, this is the best image editing/ graphic designing software that I have used till now. It significantly better in terms of the features provided and easy to use UI. Since I have switched from software development to graphic designing, I have found that the learning curve can be a bit difficult because of how powerful this application is.

Pros

Photoshop's editing and design capabilities are immense. The range of tools it offers are simply amazing. From editing image, to creating GIFs and AVI videos. The UI is simply amazing and task like removing backgrounds, retouching photos, fixing lighting issues , adding special effects etc only takes a few clicks on the mouse.

Cons

High license price can sometimes turn off smaller studios and individual users wanting to use the product. Also the memory/cpu usage is very high , causing the application to freeze or crash several times. The loading time for the application is also high.

Reasons for Choosing Adobe Photoshop

Since canva is very limited in the range of features it offer, it was not meeting our use case completely.

Reasons for Switching to Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is the industry standard for image editing/graphic designing, and since everybody on the team was using adobe it became tough to collaborate with others without photoshop

It consistently hangs and you lose your work

Reviewed on 23/8/2022

It reminds me of that Guns n' Roses song: "Used To Love Her".

It reminds me of that Guns n' Roses song: "Used To Love Her".

Pros

It used to be a stable software product. I used it a -lot- for cleaning up images, editing images for product reviews, etc. It was an every day tool. Those were the days. It was so good that I still launch it every now and then to see is I can get something done before it freezes. Sometimes it even works out - like when I can use magic wand to select the background, make it transparent, then save the image fast before the program hangs.

Cons

It freezes. Usually it freezes during the first or second editing operation. I have uninstalled and reinstalled dozens of times. I've tried different versions. For a while, an old version was OK, then it seemed to loose compatibility with the libraries or something in the rest of Adobe creative suite. Now it freezes too. I've gone through as much of the online help as I could find to see if anything would help. Nope. For the past year, maybe year and a half, this has not been a stable program. That makes it pretty useless. I live in dread of when Adobe breaks more of the programs in its creative suite. I guess I should be planning for that now. I so very much love InDesign, but I know they will make it unusable eventually.

The app has been a golden arrow for me now I can edit some premium-level images without depending on anyone else. I edit all my business images through photoshop before uploading them on my business Instagram page. It has worked efficiently and edits high-definition images without harming its quality. It has been my best friend throughout my editing journey.

Pros

The best image editing software in the market. It can give you great results if you have a little bit of a creative mind. The filters are amazing and are worth trying and auto mode is also great for newbies. You will get some high-definition edited images after working on it.

Cons

The user interface of the app is not that great it is a little difficult to understand for new users. The mobile version of the software is not as good as the desktop version it lags sometimes. Its premium is also very costly and It has so many editing tools that sometimes the user may get confused.
