What do you like best?
As a professional photographer and body painter, Photoshop has made my life simplistic, efficient, and enhanced. The ease-of-use with Photoshop, the tools, tips, and secret wands make editing photos for clients stunning and more beautiful than the raw image my camera produces. Photoshop provides the stunning difference in my final output that makes customers come back for my services over and over.
What do you dislike?
Overall I do not have many dislikes in Photoshop. The Price is what I see as the least savory aspect of its offerings. Adobe seems to have solved some of that with the monthly subscriptions, but for the starving artist, even that doesn't help. It is good though that Adobe offers student software versions and you can access use of it from public libraries.
Recommendations to others considering the product
For any photographer that wants to edit and improve their photos, Photoshop provides the filters, brushes, tools, highlights, and special effects that one would need to illuminate their art. It is great for removing red eye, blurs, environmental dust or specs, and improve luminosity. Adobe has the best software for graphic design, photography, and design in the industry and their support/presence online speaks for itself.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Red eye. That was the first issue that Photoshop solved for this photographer. I was able to manipulate photos, add in people who can't make the photo shoots, and get rid of environmental flaws in the photographs. Enhancing old photographs that i re-photo or scan for customers, Photoshop has been a God-send.
