"Un imprescindible para un fotógrafo."

What do you like best?

Su gran versatilidad tanto para editar fotos e imágenes ya creadas como para crearlas desde cero. Tiene una gran variedad de herramientas para conseguir editar y crear cualquier cosa que tengas en mente. Es intuitivo y fácil de usar para los menos experimentados, pero también muy completo y técnico para los más profesionales.

What do you dislike?

Necesitas un equipo competente para poder acceder a las últimas actualizaciones y no tener ningún problema a la hora de trabajar con imágenes grandes o con una gran cantidad de capas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ten mucha paciencia si tienes un ordenador algo viejo, pues tardará en abrir o en aplicar algunas funciones. Por lo demás, es un programa muy competente y fácil de usar. No te quedes solo con las herramientas de las que dispone el programa por defecto. En Internet encontrarás una gran variedad de herramientas que te permitirán mejorar tu trabajo y hacerlo más único (pinceles, texturas, fuentes, etc).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gracias a este programa me he desarrollado como fotógrafa, siendo capaz de editar imágenes rápida y fácilmente. Además con él, he creado mi imagen de marca desde cero, lo que ha aportado más valor a mi trabajo.

"La unica herramienta de edición de fotografías que jamas necesitaras."

What do you like best?

Nunca echarás de menos una función o herramienta, si otro editor de fotografía lo tiene, Photoshop lo hace mejor, mientras la competencia aun perfecciona su herramienta de selección vectorial, Photoshop ya ofrece funciones de selección automática, lo mismo para remoción del fondo, capas, etc... otros tienen funciones similares, pero si las comparas lado a lado, Photoshop está generaciones adelante.

Tampoco encontraras ninguna otra herramienta con tantas opciones para extender sus funciones, lo que se entiende ya que Photoshop es el líder del mercado y es normal que tenga la mayor comunidad por detrás (desarrolladores), pero igualmente es una buena ventaja para el usuario.

Por pertenecer al paquete creativo de Adobe también tendrás una completa integración con los demás programas de edición profesional de esa empres, todos líderes en sus respectivos sectores, facilitando mucho los procesos creativos y evitando la conversión desnecesaria entre formatos y la posible pérdida de información resultante de estas conversiones.

What do you dislike?

Le falta compatibilidad con otras plataformas, en Linux tenemos que utilizar GIMP en la empresa pero lo cambiaríamos por Photoshop en un segundo si lanzaran una versión compatible

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si buscas lo mejor, adelante, no encontrarán ninguna otra herramienta de edición fotográfica más completa... si buscas la solución más barata, no es Photoshop. Existen soluciones muy completas más baratas o gratuitas que poden atender al 90% de las necesidades de edición fotográfica. (pueden probar con Gimp, por ejemplo)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Principalmente edicion de imagenes para la web y impresos.

"Fantastico Programa de Edicion"

What do you like best?

Photoshop es la mejor manipulación de imágenes digitales para todos los usuarios, con muchos elementos para editar, eliminar ojos rojos, recortar, filtrar, ...

Es uno de los más básicos y debe aprender software para cualquier persona que esté en el campo creativo o de diseño. Me gusta mucho la funcionalidad múltiple del software, ya que puede realizar una variedad de tareas desde el dibujo de ilustraciones hasta la edición de imágenes o la creación de diseños para interfaces de usuario / sitios web. También me gusta cómo tiene infinitas posibilidades y se puede usar para crear, diseñar o editar cualquier cosa.

What do you dislike?

El precio es caro, pero puede elegir la versión de iOS con iPad para lápiz. Aprendí la mayoría de Photoshop por mí mismo y no era el software más fácil de aprender. Obviamente, requiere cierto nivel de capacitación profesional para poder aprovechar al máximo las características. Tuve que tomar la ayuda de varios videos en línea y cursos en línea para poder aprender este software. Se necesitan tiempos para poder dominar el software, pero Internet siempre está ahí para ayudar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Photoshop es un gran software, pero debemos documentar muy bien para aprovechar todas sus funcionalidades y, por otro lado, tenemos que tener una buena computadora ya que este software consume muchos recursos. Una vez que empiezas a trabajar regularmente con este software, no puedes dejarlo atrás porque obtendrás resultados increíbles.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Uso Photoshop a partir de una variedad de trabajos digitales. Lo he usado para crear maquetas para medios sociales, impresos, fuera de casa u otros anuncios digitales. Lo he usado para crear logotipos y gráficos de información. También edité imágenes, creé ilustraciones y diseñé varias interfaces de usuario a través de este software que incluye aplicaciones de teléfonos móviles y sitios web.

"Excelente aplicacion de diseño."

What do you like best?

Adobe Photoshop sin lugar a dudas es una de las mejores aplicacion de diseño grafico, tanto para pc como para mac. Es una aplicacion que no tiene limites. Los unicos limites los pone el creativo o el diseñador que la use, ya que Photshop te da todas las oportunidades, tanto de creación como de exportacion a la hora de finalizar el proyecto.

Ademas Photoshop te permite la mas que aceptable opcion de trabajar de plataforma sin incoveniente con cualquier tableta digitalizadora del mercado.

Adicionalmente a este fantastico producto, si le dedicamos unas horas, veremos la multitud de opciones que nos ofrece, como puede ser el uso de filtros, uso de vectores, personalizado de fuentes, etc ...

Sin lugar a dudas altamente recomendable.

What do you dislike?

El único inconveniente visible de esta aplicación es el consumo de maquina que realiza en las ultimas versiones, entiendo que por posibles problemas de optimización por parte de Adobe.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Altamente recomendado para todos los diseñadores y creativos, tanto profesionales, como iniciados. Sin lugar a dudas es la mejor aplicación, por las facilidades comentadas, tanto de creación, importación, exportación y gestión de los proyectos.

Alta aceptación de optimiza

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

La gestion y realizacion de proyectos tantos desde 0 como aportados por los clientes, los cuales nos los traen exportados en distintos formatos y con las ultimas versiones de adobe photoshop no es necesario disponer del resto de aplicacion para la apertura del proyecto y trabajar.

"Resultados sobresalientes y profesionales"

What do you like best?

Al ser un usuario de Photoshop desde hace mucho tiempo, la nueva versión 2018 tiene demasiadas cosas increíbles para mencionar. Algunas de las mejores cosas sobre el producto serían la pestaña de fotos LR, que me da acceso a todas mis fotos de Lightroom a través de la nube, la herramienta de enfoque inteligente y Actions, que es completamente esencial al editar muchas fotos.

What do you dislike?

Una vez más, no hay muchas cosas que no me gusten, pero si tuviera que elegir algo, generalmente estoy editando varias fotos por sesión y las pestañas se llenan mucho. Sería bueno ver una solución que me ayude a mantenerme organizado al abrir varias ventanas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ser experto en Photoshop me ha ayudado muchísimo. Es una herramienta poderosa que se puede utilizar en tantas facetas diferentes que recomiendo, por lo menos, aprender los conceptos básicos de esta herramienta tan perfecta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahora con el uso de Page Cloud puedo diseñar todos mis sitios web a través de Photoshop. Esto es enorme, el diseño web puede ser extremadamente costoso para las nuevas empresas, pero contar con una aplicación tan robusta como Photoshop me permite ser creativo y ahorrar mucho dinero. Ser experto en Photoshop me ha ayudado inmensamente de muchas maneras. Desde la creación de currículums únicos hasta presentaciones creativas, he sido capaz de destacar en mi campo.

"Create, improve and transform your photos, images and designs"

What do you like best?

The program allows you through a large number of tools to create, edit and retouch images, videos, illustrations and photographs which gives a treatment with a first quality graphic. In the same way, you can design websites and applications for mobile devices. With the passage of time it has been updated and improved in each version that goes on the market allowing to work in 3D.

What do you dislike?

It is a program that is available only for Windows and Mac. It is necessary to have a basic knowledge about the program as well as photography to be able to take advantage of all the tools it has given that to get professional level images is complex. Likewise, compared to other similar software it is relatively expensive, although it is worth what it costs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In order to use the program efficiently and achieve a better quality of work, it is necessary to have the knowledge not only of the use of all the tools that the program has, but also of the basic aspects of photography and design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through this program I have edited images and photographs that are used in my work exhibitions. In the same way for the web page design. In the same way this program allows me to create and design a collage of photos necessary to support the research projects that are elaborated in the organization, allowing a better organization of the same and giving it a greater visibility.

"Edición de Alta Calidad."

What do you like best?

Después de tantos años, Adobe ha demostrado que sabe cómo crear un buen software de edición de fotografías. Con cada actualización ha ido mejorando cada vez más y por eso merece el título de rey en edición y manipulación de imágenes. Photoshop contiene muchas herramientas diseñadas para editar sus fotografías, pero también para la creación de gráficos de cualquier tipo, como logotipos para una página web, videos, etc.

What do you dislike?

Es realmente difícil elegir Photoshop, tenemos algunos problemas de rendimiento, pero supongo que eso es lo que obtienes cuando el software se actualiza constantemente y no te mantienes al día con el hardware. también aumentamos la resolución y el conteo de capas en algunas de nuestras ilustraciones, lo que tampoco ayuda a ninguno de los dos.

Además, el esquema de precios de suscripción a la nube creativa puede ser una rebaja para algunos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Photoshop es una herramienta muy profesional, de hecho es un estándar de la industria, se puede utilizar en múltiples áreas de negocios: diseño, fotografía, web, etc. Hay mucha información, cursos, certificaciones para aprender a usar este software correctamente y obtener el máximo provecho de esto.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photoshop ha sido muy útil al hacer mis diseños web, es casi una herramienta obligatoria al diseñar. En cuanto a mi hobby (fotografía) es mi herramienta predeterminada para la post producción, la inclusión de Camera Raw, me permite revelar mis negativos digitales, de una manera fácil.

"Todo lo que necesites para edición de fotos y algo más"

What do you like best?

Photoshop de alguna manera consigue tener una multitud de herramientas de edición y más funciones que jamas necesitaremos y aun así mantener una interfaz limpia y buen rendimiento comparado con otras herramientas de edición. Ademas las nuevas funciones que se añaden con el tiempo como el lazo magnético y corrección de errores automática son realmente útiles todos los días y hacen con que esperamos a ver las novedades en las siguiente versiones.

What do you dislike?

Las solicitudes de login de Creative Cloud por los bloqueos de nuestro cortafuego corporativo son bastante molestas, pero fuera eso, ninguna queja de Photoshop

Recommendations to others considering the product

MIren los precios de Creative Cloud y todo que ofrecen antes de buscar alternativas mas baratas, Photoshop ya no es tan caro cuando fue en su tiempo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Edición de modelos 3d, ese es el "algo más" que me refería en el titular, desconozco otro software de edición de imágenes que nos permita importar modelos 3d exportados desde Autocad y texturizar para tener siempre la "foto" perfecta de los productos a ser lanzados, utilizamos muchísimo esa función y o tendríamos bastante mas difícil si no fuera por Photoshop

"Edición de Alta Calidad."

What do you like best?

Programa totalmente recomendado su uso tanto en ámbito profesional como particular, su calidad es excelente y todos los diseños que realizo con ella son excelentes, tiene muchísimas opciones que hacen de esta aplicación de las mejores del mercado.

Me encantan todas las cosas que puedes lograr con Adobe Photoshop. Lo uso para manipular la fotografía para el trabajo de diseño gráfico.

También lo uso para crear imágenes o incluso ilustraciones digitales. Me encanta poder separar elementos de mi trabajo en capas, ya que esto facilita el proceso. Me permite cambiar cosas rápidamente sin tener que hacer cada capa más. Creo que la gran variedad de herramientas es una ventaja. También son bastante fáciles de aprender y usar.

What do you dislike?

A veces se me crashea la aplicación teniendo que reiniciarla aunque no se suelen borrar los proyectos con los que estaba trabajando, estaría bien mejorar el manejoa de los puntos y las formas, y a veces necesita un mejor manejo de la fuente.

El procesamiento de textos es un poco mediocre. Me gustaría poder vectorizar las fuentes para una mejor gestión. A veces odio ir y venir entre Ilustrator y Photoshop solo porque quiero una configuración de fuente específica.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Tienen una versión de prueba gratuita de un mes para que puedas probarlo antes de comprarlo. Nuestra compañía paga por la nuestra, así que escuché que puede ser costoso, pero hay planes de suscripción disponibles para empresas y personas.

Además, recomiendo la utilización de tutoriales, guías etc para aprender todos sus características.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Edición de fotos, retoque y manipulación que le permiten dar a sus fotos el empuje que necesitan para ser obras de arte increíbles de activos de alta calidad para su uso en redes sociales, sitios web, anuncios impresos o cualquier otro medio. Utilizo Photoshop regularmente para editar fotos para clientes o amigos, así como para colocar logotipos y preparar los recursos de los clientes para la publicación en redes sociales.

"El mejor programa de edición de imágenes por excelencia"

What do you like best?

Los productos de Adobe son realmente los productos de diseño por excelencia y casi siempre serán los más actualizados en cuanto a características y mejoras. La otra ventaja de utilizar los productos de Adobe es que, dado que son el producto principal utilizado por los diseñadores, generalmente puedes estar seguro de que tus documentos serán compatibles con otros diseñadores y compañías, ya que probablemente también estén usando Adobe.

What do you dislike?

El único inconveniente es que hay tantas herramientas y trucos que tardas un poco en aprender y retenerlo todo. Ciertamente hay características y funciones que usarás con regularidad, pero hay otras que son extremadamente interesantes y que solo requieren práctica para dominarlas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitivamente lo veo como algo imprescindible para cualquier empresa / persona que tenga algo que ver con los aspectos de diseño. Incluso si no lo está utilizando para crear archivos usted mismo, encontrará que es agradable tener cuando revisa o recibe archivos PSD de otros que no podría ver / editar sin tener el programa. Haga su mejor esfuerzo para encontrar algún tipo de forma para obtener un precio con descuento, como verificar que es un tipo de estudiante o hacer que su empresa compre una cuenta comercial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Usamos Adobe Photoshop mientras trabajamos en piezas de correo directo, marketing por correo electrónico, marca y redes sociales. La versión Creative Cloud de Photoshop ha sido útil para compartir los estándares y los elementos de la marca (por ejemplo, fuentes, cabeceras, logotipos) entre los usuarios de nuestra organización que comparten nuestra cuenta comercial.

"Irreplaceable"

What do you like best?

The raw power this program provides is absolutely unparalleled. While maybe not the best for creating graphics from scratch, it's an extremely potent tool to adjust and perfect them. From posters, to banner ads, to company logos and icons, this program can handle anything you throw at it and spit out a very professional result.

What do you dislike?

There is quite honestly not a lot I dislike about PhotoShop. I use it on a daily basis and maybe the only thing I can find to complain about would be the scratch disk taking up so much space, and the program becoming laggy with larger or more complex files, but that's not necessarily the fault of the program, more the nature of what it's doing

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot! You can now pay monthly instead of paying hundreds up front, and there is a 14 day trial as well!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for graphic design, namely website elements and promotional materials. I have used many programs, and all others pale in comparison to the quality of PS

"Good program for edition "

What do you like best?

my english its bad, but ill try write this, this its the best program editor of photo, you can do all with this, better than other program, you can clean the photo, red eyes, and make a joke for your friends.

SI hay algun español que me entienda, el programa es de lo mejor, el poder seleccionar la capa que deseo modificar, el poder estructurar y mover todo sin ningun problema, sin duda el mejor, no lo cambiaria por nada

What do you dislike?

Too expensive, for 1 person, maybe for 1 college or profesional, but for 1 normal person its expensive, and u need a little capacite for use this program, its hard to use for 1 if you dont learn first, but when you learn its awesome.

Como en el anterior, hago la revision en español, es un buen programa, para uso profesional, para uso personal, es un tanto caro, y bastante complicado de usar si no tienes conocimientos de ello, pero como casi todos los programas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its the best program, you cant use other.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this program we can show the car pieze by pieze, and thanks by this program we can sell better cars, and more secure for the people.

Con este programa montamos el coche pieza a pieza para mostrarlo a capas y poder seleccionar una a una las piezas que queremos mostras, tal vez queremos mostrar solo la carroceria y nada de chapa.

"¡Interfaz limpia y efectiva llena de herramientas y posibilidades!"

What do you like best?

Me encanta la flexibilidad que tiene Photoshop. He estado usando este programa durante cuatro años, y todavía tengo que aprenderlo todo. Se puede usar para diseño gráfico (como una versión más ligera de Illustrator), edición de fotos y manipulación de fotos. También es muy útil cuando se trata de ediciones simples de captura de pantalla, si necesito bloquear un nombre o dos.

La interfaz de usuario es simple y limpia, nada abrumadora, y se ejecuta sin problemas tanto en mi computadora portátil más económica como en mi computadora de escritorio. Nunca he tenido problemas con el retraso, y las fotos se exportan rápidamente incluso con archivos de gran tamaño y calidad 100%. Me sorprende que este programa sea tan liviano, cuando tiene un impacto tan poderoso.

What do you dislike?

No es el programa más intuitivo de la historia. Todavía me encuentro a mí mismo haciendo tutoriales en Google con mucha frecuencia. Muchas herramientas / opciones / configuraciones están ocultas dentro de la barra superior; honestamente, no estoy seguro de lo que muchos de estos hacen. Mi mayor queja con esto (y todos los productos de Adobe) es que no hay un tutorial / guía clara de referencia cuando tengo estas preguntas; la mayoría de las veces, recurro a la ayuda de Reddit / Youtube porque la ayuda de Adobe no es lo suficientemente específica y detallada.

Del mismo modo, el programa a menudo no se ejecuta como espero que se ejecute. Trataré de exportar una imagen como PNG solo para que la opción se desactive y no haya un mensaje que me diga por qué no puedo realizar esta acción; de nuevo, recurro a Google.

Es un poco molesto que el programa no sea acogedor para los usuarios más nuevos, pero esto es de esperar cuando tiene muchas opciones complejas. Solo desearía que la educación del usuario fuera mejor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

¡Es muy fácil enseñarte este programa! Hay algunas funciones simples que puede usar solo para retocar una fotografía, pero también puede profundizar en profundidad; existen herramientas para cualquiera de sus necesidades. Amo la interfaz Todo está ubicado en lugares intuitivos, y funciona muy bien para mis necesidades. ¡Recomiendo usar Photoshop para todas las necesidades de fotografía de su empresa!

"Ideal para editar o crear imágenes profesionales"

What do you like best?

Me encanta que haya tantas herramientas en este software que te ayudan a eliminar o arreglar cosas no deseadas, ya sean manchas, marcas sucias en el suelo o que quieras combinar dos fotos diferentes.

What do you dislike?

El principal problema es que para acceder a este software es necesario pagar una suscripción anual o mensual, no es pago único, lo que hace que sea un software bastante caro.

Por otra parte, y esto no es realmente un contra sino más bien una recomendación me encantaría ver cómo la experiencia de Photoshop y Lightroom se fusionan entre sí.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Este software está dedicado a un entorno profesional y por tanto si eres amateur, quizá no vas a sacar provecho de todo lo que ofrece esta herramienta.

Cumpliendo esto, recomiendo usar tantas capas como sea posible. Cuanto más edites, más capas vas a querer crear, ya que puede haber pequeñas ediciones que no te hayan gustado. Así, es más fácil eliminar capa por capa, en lugar de tener que hacer más ediciones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Un problema de negocio que puedo resolver con Adobe Photoshop es que puedo editar fácilmente muchas cosas ya que realmente conozco bien el software. Los beneficios que obtuve son la característica de "licuar". Puede editar ciertas partes del cuerpo. Otra gran característica es poder utilizar la herramienta "patch". Con esto, puedes mover una parte de la foto y moverla a otra parte de la foto y hacer que se fusione.

"Edición y Diseño Profesional"

What do you like best?

Sin duda es el editor de imágenes por excelencia y el preferido de todos los diseñadores con los que he trabajado. Las licencias no son económicas pero merece la pena cada céntimo pagado. Tiene infinidad de opciones y posibilidades, tantas que lo más complicado es llegar a manejarlo perfectamente, porque es increible la cantidad de cosas que se pueden hacer una vez estás dentro.

What do you dislike?

el punto negativo es la complejidad de utilizarlo y de conseguir el resultado deseado a menos que seas un experto, hace falta muchas experiencia y horas de uso para llegar a dominar todos los aspectos que incluye. Pero aun siendo muy complejo la colocación y diseño interno es tan bueno que tienes visible y a mano siempre casi todas las herramientas y opciones principales.

Recommendations to others considering the product

que decir. Esta herramienta y el paquete completo de Adobe se recomiendan por si solos. No es necesario decir nada. Si puedes pagarlo y trabajas diseñando o editando imágenes, compra porque es absolutamente increible todo lo que se puede hacer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"An absolute must if you are a professional photographer"

What do you like best?

Oh where to start with all the reasons to love Photoshop? Don't get me wrong, I love my Lightroom but it only takes you about 80% there. To really turn a photograph from a picture to a portrait, you need all the tools that only Photoshop can truly give you. It helps with cleaning up faces, getting rid of objects in your images, and I can go on and on. I always say Photoshop is like an onion. Every time you think you know everything there is to use it, there is another layer of tools inside the program.

What do you dislike?

It is pretty darn expensive. And upgrading is expensive too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Whether you are a professional or hobbyist photographer, you need Adobe Photoshop. It has so many mad skills to take your images to the next level. And it is a great program for creating designs too! I use it for making my brochures, flyers, and online marketing materials. May be expensive, but worth the money!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to give my photography clients beautiful hand retouched images that are proudly displayed on their walls. I am able to use Photoshop to get rid of all the "defects" in my work and on my clients to create beautiful images that are so perfect looking. It also allows me to create flyers, brochures, etc. for all my marketing needs. It takes me from being just a photographer to also being a graphic artist.

"Must-have Photo Editing program"

What do you like best?

Photoshop offers a broad range of tools that help me solve my everyday photo retouching tasks. My favorite tools include the Quick-Selection Tool and the Outline Path tool, enabling the selection of specific areas for work. Adjusting color is easy with the Selective Color Tool and the Hue/Saturation Tool. Many images can be simply adjusted using the Levels.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have automatic backup during use of the program -- to be able to recover a file in the case the program locks up or crashes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a powerful program with so many tools it can seem intimidating to learn. However, starting with some simple tools it is easy to learn and teach yourself more in-depth applications for the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Photoshop to color correct Photographic images of custom-finished wood panels that are then printed on photographic paper. These images are laminated to board and cut down to smaller pieces, and used for distribution as a sales tool. These paper "wood" swatches take the place of actual wood finish swatches and provide an accurate representation of the color, but are much less expensive for the company to produce.

"The best photo editor there is "

What do you like best?

This software is stable, doesn't crash, updates are always good and improvements intuitive. There was not a single moment where I thought "what is this and why is it here?!". There are other softwares which try to do the same, but as browser apps or as lighter versions, but I haven't come across a single one that comes even close to Photoshop. I love being able to prepare photos for all the platforms I use in no time.

What do you dislike?

I wish the possibilities for working with raw files (.cdr since I use Canon) were richer. Actually, I wish Lightroom and Photoshop could become one :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

#1 making better and more relevant content for social platforms (when compared to competition)

#2 saving time on photo editing since I do it all in Photoshop

#3 jumping in and doing some of design when designers are too busy, because I can, because it's Photoshop

"Photoshop is the Best"

What do you like best?

Select Subject is my favorite new feature in Adobe Photoshop. With Select Subject (which I use through the Magic Wand tool) you can quickly isolate the pronounced subject of an image.It works on anything: humans, dogs, cars, and all sort of objects. I don't know how they do it! Eventually, this software will be so good that I will be completely irrelevant at my job. You'll just open Adobe and tell it what you want it will appear. Doesn't get better than that.

What do you dislike?

I'm not very good with Adobe Illustrator, but I use it sometimes. Illustrator has artboard features that translate to easy printing. Photoshop also has art boards. I'm not sure why. It doesn't seem as useful in Photoshop. Because I'm a Photoshop heavy user, I usually have to create all of my PDF documents page by page, and use cheesy web-based compiler scripts to make two-page PDFs. If I was better at Adobe Illustrator, I could make two-page PDFs straight out of that program with no need for third-party scripts. I see two options: either Photoshop finds a way to improve their artboard feature or I spend some time learning how to be better at Illustrator.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photoshop is crucial to everything I do as a marketer. I touch up photos for social media, I make new designs, I revitalize old photographs for longevity. Photoshop is so great I can't even name a single competitor. I've used this program since I was a teenager and I have found a way to use Photoshop at EVERY job I have ever held.

"The gold standard for image editing"

What do you like best?

I absolutely love, love, love the healing tool, it is one of the primary reasons I use Photoshop. That and how incredibly easy it is to get rid of backgrounds. I am constantly taking pictures for business and either need to remove an entire background to make it white (for selling online) or to make it transparent for combining with another image. Or I am needing to remove something from an image (a tag, straps, wires, etc) and Photoshop makes it easy (and sometimes even fun!) to do that.

What do you dislike?

It is really difficult to learn! Not very intuitive at all, so it takes some training to really learn how to do the things you want to do. Thankfully, there are lots of free videos and tutorials online, and a good support forum to have your questions answered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find tutorials online and learn to use it like a pro! There are all kinds of things you can do that you may not have thought of and there are plenty of free (and paid) tutorials to teach you how to do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to create images with blank white backgrounds for selling products, I am able to remove extraneous pieces of images that don't belong there (or to respect someone's privacy) and I am able to remove a piece of an image from the background and add it to another image to make advertisements. It has made a major difference in my ability to create images for business.

"One of the best software for image editing."

What do you like best?

In my opinion Photoshop is the best image editor, it is very complete and versatile and its interface improves with each update, all its tools are well organized and it is easy to find the one you need and use it.

This software provides effects and results with a high level of quality, so using its tools in an appropriate way allows to have very good and immediate results.

On the other hand this is the software par excellence for photo editing, we can apply effects of all kinds, when it comes to images the possibilities are almost endless.

What do you dislike?

I really like this software but I think it is relatively expensive, there are other image editing software that achieve good results with a more accessible price, however the quality of the photoshop works make it worth the investment. On the other hand it is not so easy to use, it is a software oriented mainly to professionals.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Photoshop is a great software, but we must document very well to take advantage of all its functionalities and on the other hand we need to have a good computer since this software consumes a lot of resources. Once you start to work regularly with this software, you can not leave it behind because you will get incredible results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily in our company we make many designs and edit many images, which is why we use photoshop on a daily basis and it is a tool that has helped us to work quickly with quality designs and images.

"Photoshop is the best editing software, the most professional and the most complete that exists."

What do you like best?

It is very easy to start editing photos. Many of the edits commonly made to photos can be done with a single click on the program. For example, you can automatically reduce the red-eye effect or whiten someone's teeth with the click of a button. I can simply adjust the skin tones of people in their images. I can also enter the most advanced editing functions without much complication.

What do you dislike?

Although it is easy to use, it requires a high professional level and advanced knowledge is needed in order to be fully exploited. We can see this clearly in magazines, newspapers, books, posters, museums ... where they improve the figure significantly to everyone that appears on the cover, there being a great professional work behind so that the result is of quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software helps photographs damaged by the passage of time, a hidden element, people or unwanted areas in a photograph. However, many other things will go to the trash, due to incorrect exposure, lack of saturation, and other adjustment failure when shooting the photo.

Photoshop allows you to correct many settings, as if you were going back in time, as if you did not give us a second chance to shoot that same photo again but with the option of learning and with a better result.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

is the most complete software on the market if we talk about photo editing, since this program allows you to edit, make photomontages, 3D effects, and has a range of filters to give you the opportunity to create digital images.

It has allowed us to successfully carry out digital advertising campaigns where we can publicize the work of our company. Likewise, it has allowed us to carry out publicity and another type of digital work that allows the internal strengthening of our company.

"create, edit, modify easily with Adobe Photoshop you will achieve it"

What do you like best?

what most impresses me about this tool, which is one of the best-known software programs of the Adobe house, is currently the most complete editing tool that exists in the market, used by thousands of people and professionals in the area of graphic design, photographers, web creators and amateur users who usually retouch and edit their photos, for its simple and convenient interface very simple to use

What do you dislike?

the bad thing is that if you do not have an original version, you can fall viruses or Trojan to your PC or lapto computer. another thing is that if you use it wrong it adulterates the photographs

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it 100% since you will be able to mark those photos that you do not like, you can make your own advertising logos, your brand, you can also use your own banners for your web pages or your bloogs, really this program is very broad and good at editing photos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

what m plus me is that since its launch in 1990, has become the ideal tool to create ads, logos, marketing pieces, retouching of photographs and designs through its vast collection of filters, tools and pallets , what I want is those little problems that the photo shows on the camera

"Very powerful Software"

What do you like best?

With Photoshop you can do anything, and anything you don't know how to do, you can find out how to do online. The beauty of photoshop is that there is so much control over every element of your image, that really creativity is your online limitation.

I love live adjustments. If you are going to change the brightness of a photo for example, I don't want to apply this effect, and then later have no control. With layer adjustments you can always tweek your settings.

What do you dislike?

The subscription model is not great. Yes you constantly receive the latest updates, but even previous versions of photoshop are extremely powerful, so always have the latest is not always necessary.

But honestly, there is not much to complain about with photoshop. I wouldn't even say it is a difficult program to use. It is very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are going to get into photoshop, learn about layer masks. The amount of control you have with layer masks is outstanding. To me, it is the cornerstone of photoshop and a skill that comes in handy with colour correcting, editing and or manipulating images.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Colour correction and photo manipulation are used daily for me in a print production environment. Whenever there is an unsolvable print problem, photoshop can be used to solve it. Colour correction of very specific areas of an image is something that is a must and I use photoshop for this very often.

"Photoshop is a bloated gorilla that is really nice to keep in the back yard"

What do you like best?

Photoshop can do everything. It's feature list can wrap around the earth 2.76 times and Adobe continues to add whizz-bang features to every upgrade. Photoshop CS 201X is clearly better than 201X - 1 and doesn't show any signs of slowing.

What do you dislike?

As a bloated gorilla, it moves slowly and complains a lot. It doesn't fit with the host OS and it clearly thinks it is the most important app on the computer, soaking up all available resources (screen, memory, cpu, etc.). It even overrides common key commands (esp. frustrating is macOS's "hide" -- command-H), the system color picker, and all around looks about as sleek as our gorilla trying to squeeze itself into a cocktail dress. This is particularly surprising for a design-focused app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are more alternative options than ever to Photoshop. Take a look at Acorn (basic image editing), Pixelmator (raster image creation), Sketch (vector UI generation), and others. Often, if you are doing simple tasks, one of the other may be a cleaner option. However, if you want high end features like content aware fill, or smart masking, or, or, or… go for the gorilla, it's nice to have around, although the monthly cost is a bit hard to swallow if you don't use it consistently.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Photoshop for asset creation. We are mainly targeting apps, web, and digital content creation. Every once in a while we dip our toe into photo retouching, etc. but the core business use is asset manipulation and basic image editing.

"It is one of the best tools to edit images that I have known is very powerful"

What do you like best?

The ease of transposing the images by layers is one of the most versatile ways that Adobe Photoshop has that without including the amount of effects that the software has

What do you dislike?

Everything I like about software for beginners can be a bit cumbersome to use or application.One of the important things to take into account for the execution of Photoshop is that it requires a minimum of memory requirements and to be able to unwrap properly I advise a minimum of 4 GB of RAM is enough to handle it well

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software has solved me many things from retouching with high quality of professionalism impressive effects from degrading to texturized tones has a lot of versatility and functions I currently use photoshop 2018.Graphic designers use it a lot as a tool par excellence in terms of editing images and also to make some frames for certain videos or movies this is a new option that the previous versions did not have.I am very pleased with this software meets my expectations at 100% I think it is great to continue like this day more and better go on the right track

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to have many benefits from creating my own logos of my clients and my companies until retouching with professional quality my images.I also use it for my designs on my web pages, it has a lot of filters, from Pixelize to 3D effects that are great

"Photoshop Always Delivers "

What do you like best?

Photoshop is an incredible tool for processing single or batch photos, creating animated image sequences, adding effects to photos and a great deal more. You can use just a few of the features and produce web or print ready images in no time, or you can dive into the range of filters and features to create everything from 3D images to touch-up photos to suit any environment.

What do you dislike?

Like all advanced Adobe Products, Photoshop requires some basic understanding of what is going on under the hood. While it shares many of the same control bar icons as Illustrator and other programs from Adobe, beyond that things tend to get pretty in depth and spending several hours learning how to use it is a great use of your time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always read the Classroom in the Book current edition and check the Adobe website for "what's new" in the current edition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Batch processing of photos can't be beat. If you need to run a folder full of photos with the same sizing and final image file quality/size, then you can run a script and execute it and go have a coffee while 10, 100 or 1000 images or more are processed in the background. You can't beat that. We use Adobe to process all of the images for our online learning site.

"RESEÑA- Adobe Photoshop."

What do you like best?

Photoshop es una herramienta que abre las puertas a infinidad de posibilidades, tiene múltiples usos, ya sea de forma aficionada y/o casera, como retocar y mejorar fotos, cambiar el tamaño, rotar las imágenes, entre otros. O también de forma profesional para trabajos de diseños, animaciones, dibujos, portadas o incluso para fotografía profesional. Los efectos y la calidad de los resultados es impecable, y tiene muchas herramientas fáciles de utilizar,

What do you dislike?

Es un programa muy pesado para aquellos ordenadores de bajos recursos o de poca memoria. Y si bien posee muchas herramientas no muy complejas, para conseguir un manejo óptimo y rápido es necesario aprender cada una de éstas, además de que es necesario descargar más recursos ya que solo viene con lo básico. Cabe destacar que en caso de comprar el software, el precio podría ser muy elevado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Posee muchas herramientas e infinidad de opciones, que si bien no son del todo complicadas, para obtener mejores resultados es necesario el manejo completo de las mismas, así que es recomendable leer manuales y guías del programa con respecto a lo que se quiera realizar, ya que al ser principiante con el programa, toma algo de tiempo acostumbrarse a tantas opciones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Posee muchas herramientas, es sencillo de utilizar y se pueden hacer muchísimos tipos de cosas en poco tiempo, obteniendo resultados de calidad profesional. Y al tener la posibilidad de usarse con distintos fines, es un software necesario en más de una ocasión.

"Best editor photo"

What do you like best?

Photoshop is the best digital image manipulation for all users, with a lot of thigs for edit, delete red eyes, crop, filters,....

Is one of the most basic and must learn software for anyone who is in creative or design field. I really like the multi functionality of the software as you can perform a variety of tasks on it from drawing illustrations to editing pictures or creating layouts for user interfaces/ websites. I also like how it has endless possibilities and can be used to create, design or edit anything.

What do you dislike?

The price is expensive but you can choose iOS version with iPad for pencil. I learned most of Photoshop by myself and it was not the easiest software to learn. It obviously requires some level of professional training to be able to make the most of the features. I had to take help from various online videos and online courses to be able to learn this software. It take times to be able to get proficient with the software but the Internet is always there to help out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It´s very easy to start with the programm but all the menus and extras is very difficult to learn in few hours, you need to practice a lot of hours. You might need some help in the beginning so asking for help with someone who is familiar with the software might help. Otherwise there are also many resources available on the Internet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I manipulated all my photos and retocated project maps without problems.

"edición y diseño profesional"

What do you like best?

la herramienta más conocida del mercado para edición fotográfica y diseño. Es la mejor opción en software propietario de este tipo, las licencias no son baratas pero merece la pena el desembolso con la cantidad de características y opciones de las que dispone. Es una herramienta super completa con infinitud de posibilidades tanto para la edición de imágenes como para la creación de nuevos proyectos, por ejemplo logotipos e imagen corporativa. Además admite multitud de formatos de archivos tanto para abrir como para guardar. Se puede trabajar cómodamente con imágenes de gran tamaño y resolución. El sistema de capas es perfecto para poder realizar varias ediciones sobre un mismo trabajo y luego ir mostrando u ocultando para ver distintos resultados. podría escribir un libro completo sobre photoshop pero aquí no es posible, así que me quedo con que es el mejor software de edición para diseñadores.

What do you dislike?

no es un problema, pero la cantidad de funciones que tiene hace que para ser un experto debas dedicar horas y horas y leer muchos manuales. Además el precio de las licencias es un poco elevado y si quieres el paquete completo se dispara, pero muchas es necesario tener varias de las herramientas adobe en función del tipo de proyecto que se este realizando.

Recommendations to others considering the product

la mejor recomendación es que si te puedes permitir la licencia compres el producto porque es increíble la cantidad de funciones y cosas que se pueden hacer con photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Es la herramienta que utilizan los diseñadores de la organización y no creo que aceptaran cambio por otro sistema o plataforma.

"Excellent versatile software, with a learning curve"

What do you like best?

There's a reason Adobe Photoshop is the most recognizable name in raster-based image editing – it can handle anything that you can throw at it. The user interface is easy to pick up (especially given the number of tutorials available for beginners) and the intuitiveness of the layers (and corresponding blending modes) make it easy to create new artwork or edit existing artwork or photos. My current favorite feature has been a part of photoshop for awhile, but I've recently began to use photoshop to make silkscreen separations using the bitmap mode and halftone generator. The new 3D features are interesting as well, especially since more and more designers find themselves needing to create custom product and packaging mockups.

What do you dislike?

Integration with Illustrator works well usually, but can get buggy when dealing with non-8-bit images. Also as someone who makes a lot of gif banner ads, having "Save for Web" be on its way out makes me nervous as it's a feature I use every week. Hopefully we'll be able to export motion creations as a .gif in another way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Photoshop will almost certainly continue to be the industry standard for design – despite the price, knowing it is essential for any designer. Since it's so widely used, tutorials are readily available, so you can create anything you need. Troubleshooting is also easy given how large the adobe photoshop user community is.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photo editing, photo compositing, artwork creation, mockup creation, silkscreen separations.

"Best of the best photo editors"

What do you like best?

Photoshop is the most powerful software that exists to make any alteration or editing in an image, the only limit when working with the application is your own imagination, capable handling, lighting, textures, 3D modeling, color editing and tools of image retouching that the software already brings are impressive.

What do you dislike?

In the latest versions I start to notice that the program gets a little slower, this is probably due to the multiple functions that are added to the application with each update. Perhaps a future update focused more on improving performance than adding new features would be fantastic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an application for photo retouching or graphic design without limits, try photoshop. Although there are applications that are very good for generating graphic content, none can be compared to photoshop, the unlimited number of functions that the application has from far away makes it # 1 graphics apps. If you still have doubts remember that you have a free trial week directly from the Adobe website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my business it allows me to design graphic pieces for advertising, I really love working with photoshop and looking for resources for this because of the large community of content creators that it has around it. In my personal life I use it a bit doing photomontages for my friends or correcting my own photos, it is a program that at the level of creation or photo retouching has everything.

"Adobe photoshop..Features that make your picture alive"

What do you like best?

Adobe Photoshop is one of the strongest photo editing tool available in the market. Adobe photoshop offers different features including photo retouching, photo merging, etc. Users can take pictures with different exposures and merge them to create a high resolution picture. Photoshop also offer different filters that can change different settings of a picture with a finger click.

What do you dislike?

Though Adobe photoshop is a strong photography tool, it comes with a price. Adobe photoshop charge a huge amount for one year license. Another problem of Adobe photoshop is that it is little complicated to operate for new users. It needs to be register too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For a professional photographer, adobe photoshop is a must needed software for all. It is really an useful tool to edit, merge, and improve new designs. The features of new adobe photoshop is adequate for any kind of photo editing. In spit of all these good things, adobe photoshop is a costly software too. Adobe should minimize the cost of the yearly fees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a photographer, I mostly use adobe photoshop for editing pictures. I also use photoshop for different designing purposes

"Daily User (2-3 Years Experience)"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the magic wand tools and the smart selections. The functionality to get feathered selections, the option to use smart radius, as well as the layer masks are the key features that I find myself using daily. I add layers, create layer masks, save selections, and then add further effects with adjustment layers each time I work on a document to preserve the information as it was so that I can revert and decision or edit anything further based on client feedback.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the limited ability to use the canvas in more freeing formats. I enjoy the use of the artboards in Illustrator and would enjoy the ability to similarly have multiple images on different canvases in one document, rather than importing and hiding layer in photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider the app "Procreate" for doing similar work as in Photoshop with the iPad Pro, using the Apple Pencil for an experience that is similar to sketching in real life.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving graphic iterations with Photoshop. While there are often many things that need to be tweaked that are larger than the simple "color schemes" it is often the small, last-minute things like CMF (color, material, finish) that I can adjust quickly and easily in Photoshop with layers and layer masks as well as saved selections and different blending styles.

"Photoshop is a dream for web and digital signage designers"

What do you like best?

Photoshop's ease of use is a huge part of my best section review. Photoshop's understandable user interface coupled with its powerful exporting tools make it a must-have for anyone that works in the web development and digital signage sphere. While you can achieve a lot of the same results with Illustrator, it's harder to export perfectly sized and resolution heavy photos.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that they keep changing the names of features. They keep moving things around and making it a little more complicated to figure out where things are. There have been significant (positive) changes since CS3.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you're using the right product. Oftentimes people assume that Photoshop is appropriate for other media and its really not. It can be used for print projects, but make sure that's only for conversion to CMYK purposes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photoshop provides us with the ability to make sure that our digital signage and web properties are designed with expert knowledge and expertise. Its also making sure that our resolutions are perfected across the board.

"It's the small things"

What do you like best?

Photoshop has got so many great tools, things that go beyond just image editing. I've now taken a few Adobe courses (in-person and online) and I'm continually surprised by how many new things I can still learn. And I've been using it for nearly a decade.

What do you dislike?

My least favorite thing is not exclusive to Photoshop but rather Adobe products.... that they've changed to a cloud-based system with monthly subscription pricing is, for me, the biggest drawback. It's corporate greed at it's finest. But it continues to be one of my favorite programs so I pay for it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their customer support has been extraordinary and it's one of the easiest softwares to find free tutorials for on YouTube.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photoshop has taken our marketing collateral to another level. Being in control of your own design, taking care of design projects in-house, instead of having to work with a freelancer is the greatest benefit!

"An Industry Standard for a Reason"

What do you like best?

There's not really anything I don't like about Photoshop. It does everything I need it to do and I'm constantly finding new things I can use it for! I love that new updates come out at least once a year so I never have time to think the service is lacking.

What do you dislike?

The one thing that would take Photoshop over the top for me is if it could be used the same way on an iPad. I think making Photoshop truly portable would give it the last push it needs to be the top in its field.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to get to know how to make Photoshop do what YOU want it to do. This makes learning much simpler.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Anything I need adjusted when it comes to graphic design or photos is handled! I love that it's also simple to save assets so I don't have to constantly save shapes and drag them from place to place.

"The frontrunner of all design programs."

What do you like best?

Photoshop will always be the number one design program. Easy to use controls, great placement of tools and visually appealing. I also like that it's consistent throughout every update, so upgrading to the current version is never a scary process.

What do you dislike?

I do notice small glitches sometimes. Nothing that hinders the design process, but just enough to make it a nuisance. For example, sometimes when trying to change fonts, I'll highlight the words that I'd want the font changed, and usually just click the font bar and press the down arrow key to scroll through all the fonts. Sometimes it doesn't work and I have to manually click each one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great program with lots of flexibility. Definitely a must-have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photoshop has become a key program in my work. Because it's so flexible, we can save from buying other programs and utilize Photoshop instead. I'm not saying that it's a complete replacement for Illustrator, but if you need a quick non-scalable logo, then Photoshop is great to use.

"A pesar de los años, sigue siendo el rey de la edición fotográfica"

What do you like best?

Después de tantos años, Adobe ha demostrado que sabe como crear un buen software de edición fotográfica. Con cada actualización ha ido mejorando más y más y por eso se merece el titulo de rey en edición y manipulación de imágenes. Photoshop contiene un montón de herramientas pensadas para editar tus fotografías pero también para la creación de gráficos de cualquier tipo como logotipos para una pagina web, para vídeos , etc.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Photoshop no es un software pensado para cualquiera. Su precio no está al alcance de todos por lo que está dedicado al ámbito profesional. Usa una suscripción anual o mensual bastante cara en vez de un pago único. Por otro lado, se necesita un equipo con suficiente memoria ya que es un software bastante pesado y usa mucha memoria RAM.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aunque cualquiera puede descargar y comprar este software, no está pensado para un uso "light" del mismo. Su uso está mas enfocado al ámbito estudiantil o laboral, hablando siempre en el sector del diseño gráfico. Si eres un usuario sin mucha experiencia no compres este software, ya que es caro y no vas a aprovechar muchas de las herramientas que tiene. Sin embargo si trabajas para una empresa de diseño o estás estudiando diseño gráfico este software te va a venir de perlas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Este programa me ha permitido realizar en el trabajo imágenes para los programas que desarrollamos. Conociendo bien el programa he logrado optimizar el tiempo a la hora de hacer mi trabajo realizando imágenes de ideas de conceptos.

"A very powerful photo editing software at reasobable price"

What do you like best?

Being user of Photoshop since V3, saw many altrnatives come and go and none managed to offer the same value of photoshop. You can work with RAW images to preserve all its original details as well as 3d models, texturizing it, layers and adjustments layers works wonderfully and the magnetic vectorial selection tool are great to work with.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for the best photo editing software available, you cant get anything better at any price today.

What do you dislike?

Its really hard to pick on photoshop, we do have some performance issues but I guess thats what you get when your software updates constntly and you dont keep up with the hardware. we are also increase resolution and layer counting in some of our artwork what isnt helping neither.

Also, the creative cloud subscription pricing scheme can be a turndown for some.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DOnt look any further, you cant get a better photo editing software anywhere else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Almost wverything... marketing material, web design, signs and social media posts, every single photo pass through photoshop at some point, we do have a extensive use of it.

"All in one, is Great!"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this software is that it allows me to work with several fields. It allows me to work with photography, graphic design and web design, all in one product, for me this and the power of the software is the most important. Being able to install plugins that facilitate or automate tasks is another of the features that I use Photoshop in my work

What do you dislike?

The new system of licensing for use that I adopt adobe, is not much to my liking, since you only get a license to use it for the time you use it. Otherwise I have no complaints about Photoshop. Another point is that, due to its complexity, it can be a little frustrating, in the beginning, to learn how to use it or take advantage of its full potential. The learning curve can be a bit pronounced.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Photoshop is a very professional tool, in fact it is a standart of the industry, it can be used in multiple areas of business: design, photography, web, etc. There is a lot of information, courses, certifications to learn how to use this software correctly and get the most out of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photoshop has been very helpful when making my web designs, it is almost a mandatory tool when designing. As for my hobby (photography) is my default tool for post production, the inclusion of Camera Raw, allows me to reveal my digital negatives, in an easy way.

"It has never been surpassed. Adobe Photoshop is still the king."

What do you like best?

You can do everything without being an expert and there are hundreds of thousands of tutorials on the internet to do just about anything.

The interface is very good and makes you feel professional in just a few days, as following step by step tutorials with such good results encourages you to keep practicing and improving every day.

The amount of options is overwhelming and there is a community behind it that keeps making free plugins.

There are also paid plugins that make your work easier and allow you to do things you've never imagined before.

What do you dislike?

The price of Adobe products is always expensive, in this case Adobe Photoshop is their most popular tool and also, in my opinion, the best they have, so the price is worth it despite being expensive.

There are increasingly free or cheaper and very interesting alternatives, such as GIMP.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a much easier tool to use than you might think, just follow the step-by-step guidelines, use the appropriate filters and you will get a great result.Don't be afraid to use the free 30-day trial, you will be satisfied.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before, we used to hire external companies to do the designs for us, which took away the possibility of seeing the evolution of the work we needed and also the waiting time was always estimated, so we decided to buy Adobe Photoshop and I specialized in learning graphic design.

Thanks to this we can now do great things without being dependent on other external companies and we are improving every day.

"Take your photography to the next level and beyond"

What do you like best?

Photoshop has also included the ability to edit videos with the same ease as you can edit photographs. The program is one of the best in the industry to be content-aware so that you can move and patch very quickly. When you add in the complimentary mobile apps that come with your subscription and download from Adobe, there is a lot of value that comes with this program.

What do you dislike?

Because Photoshop receives periodic updates now instead of a new version every year, there are sometimes a few unexpected bugs that can creep up in the system. They’re not overly bothersome and they get corrected quickly thanks to the responsiveness of Adobe and the community, but they can get in the way of a project that you’re trying to complete on a tight deadline.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Photoshop allows me to really think of the moment. When you’re focused on the moment and on capturing that thing that might not ever happen again in the history of the world, getting the horizon right and getting the light, all that stuff perfect doesn’t always happen. And in that case, Photoshop serves as a sort of safety net and really helps me in my job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you know how to use Photoshop to edit your product photography shots you’re sure to see an increase in sales. There can be no denying how important good photography is for encouraging people to buy your goods over someone else’s – and Photoshop skills can really help you make your products look the best on the market.

"Diseña lo que se te ocurra con Adobe Photoshop"

What do you like best?

Me gusta que sea un software profesional, dedicado a su uso avanzado-experto. Al ser así, cuenta con el soporte de Adobe, con actualizaciones anuales y con la incorporación de nuevas herramientas.

Puedes manipular cualquier fotografía a tu gusto, aplicarle filtros, crear nuevas imágenes, vectores, etc.

Una de las mejores herramientas que tiene es el borrador de fondos que como su nombre indica, borra cualquier fondo de una imagen en cuestión de segundos. No es perfecta, pero siempre puedes retocar manualmente los errores que tenga la imagen.

What do you dislike?

A pesar de ser un excelente software, su precio puede echar para atrás a la hora de comprarlo, ya que no es un pago único, sino que es necesario comprar una suscripción mensual o anual. Por otra parte también es necesario tener un ordenador lo suficientemente potente para poder ejecutar Photoshop, ya que es un software bastante pesado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si eres un usuario principiante no recomiendo este software debido a su alto precio, para ello hay otras alternativas gratuitas como GIMP, que también es muy buen software. Si por el contrario eres un usuario avanzado que quiere usar algo mas profesional y te lo puedes permitir, merece muchísimo la pena pagar la suscripción anual.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con este software he realizado diferentes gráficos, logos, y he retocado fotografías para la empresa en la que trabajo.

"Many years later, it's still the best editing software."

What do you like best?

This software keeps improving with every version, with is why is the most used for photo editing. Once I got used to it, which didn't take much time thanks to its user-friendly interface, I started exploring the end-less posibilities that if offers so you can get your imagination flying and become more creative. If you want your company to have a serious, modern, elegant look this is the best option.

What do you dislike?

It's not for everyone. This is because, as any sofware aimed at proffesional use, it's price may be to expensive for individuals who just want to retouch little details for social media or create small amateur projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before you start making any visuals for your business, make sure you have a good command of most of the feautures of Photoshop. My recommendation is that you should spend some hours just practising and watching tutorials of YouTub. It's not a waste of time, but a neccessary preparation so the first creations you publish and relate with your firm are good enought.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It may sound irrelevant, but having a good corporative image is important to gain new customers. Like many people say: "there's only one first impression". Anyone woukd fell more atraccted towards a company with a cared look instead of another one which looks old-fashioned, sloppy and un-professional. In my personal experience, since I updated my trademark and other visual aspect of my business, it's been easier to gain new customers.

"Blog and stock photos "

What do you like best?

As mentioned, we use Photoshop for the photo for our blog weekly and sometimes more than once per week. It has so many tools it's an everyday learning something new kind of thing. The stock photos (although this isn't exactly Photoshop, but it's connected) is where we get the aforementioned photos. Everytime.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to say I dislike this because this is mostly a "me" problem. There is so so much to do and learn that it seems near impossible to actually learn all of it. You're either on Adobe's website looking for info or you can head to YouTube. For the common user it may not be super evident what is what and how it works or what it can do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

More videos are always always always welcome.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Each week, and in between our blog is enhanced with beautiful photos and they're exactly as we want them from editing done in Photoshop. This goes out to thousands of people everytime we use it.

"Adobe Photoshop "

What do you like best?

Best thing in this adobe photoshop, easy to use for several kind of purpose like business or personal. Observated that a lots of tools are being updated day by day and it's very wonderful to create any project.

What do you dislike?

It seems that for this software at least needed bit higher configuration systems.Can't say that it will not work but really you will that there is a hanging problem for your system after installation of this adobe photoshop.Next thing is the licensing part,once you are giving free trial for user atleast give them full access.I am very well aware that its a market strategy but let the use came to know that how it will work with this tool.As per my suggestion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Perfect and go for it,if you need any more good things then don't search anything else just keep it updated and you will be getting all related things whatever you want.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So many things we were solving in our previous organisation like designing,improving and many more deals with this software that makes easy task for us.In current organisation also there is a lot of works is happening with adobe photoshop.Main thing is this we are not going outside market to make anything related to designing,as per my current role & responsibility I finish a lot of tasks and make more easy way to deal the new task just because of this software.Really appreciated for the new updates in Adobe photoshop CC. once so many things was disappeared in previous version that time it's very critical to find out the tool as it was there but anyhow in last I have to google it to find it.But now In adobe CC it really easy to keep it of front end and use it as you required.One more thing that if you are using this software,use atleast best configuration system which you have.

"Unrivaled in the industry"

What do you like best?

For all photo editing that I do, I wouldn't even consider using any other software but Photoshop. The software is very userfriendly, yet has endless opportunities. Working with magazine design, some of the most useful functions are the magnetic lasso tool and the magic wand tool to quickly create cut outs from images. The pen tool is also very useful for this purpose for more complicated images. There are so many options to adjust the colors, brightness etc of images as well. I have never wanted to edit an image in a way that Photoshop didn't offer.

What do you dislike?

Some functions and shortcuts could be more streamlined between InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, as these are commonly used together.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No other software on the market compares to Adobe Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickly creating cutouts for use in magazines can be done very accurately. Being able to edit images in bulk also has huge benefits for time and streamlined design.

"Sin dudas, el mejor editor de fotografías disponible en el mercado"

What do you like best?

Lo tiene todo, jamás necesitarás un recurso para luego descubrir que no es posible hacer X op Y con él... Si tienes Photoshop, todas tus necesidades de edicion de fotografias estan cubiertas y con Creative cloud su precio ya no es tan prohibitivo cuanto en el pasado, así que la única razón por la que no recomendaria (alto coste) ya no es un problema (se paga mes a mes como un SAAS - software as a service)

What do you dislike?

Quizás la curva de aprendizaje sea algo larga con Photoshop, no es el programa más intuitivo en el mercado. Eso si, ofrecen la versión "light" (photoshop elements) pero que no mejora mucho en ese aspecto. Quizás un modo para principiantes seria bastante util.

Recommendations to others considering the product

NO es la alternativa mas barata en el mercado, pero sin duda la más completa... Con photoshop nunca te quedarás corto de recursos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hacemos todas las ediciones de imagen con Photoshop, excepto algunos ajustes puntuales cuando no estamos en la empresa (usamos pixlr) o cuando por alguna razón tengo que usar otro equipo (Gimp) pero en general Photoshop es el programa que más utilizamos. Muy recomendable

"User since early 1990s"

What do you like best?

When people use it, the meta data stored in file - info is pretty helpful. I also like Transparent png 24, but wish there were a way to compress them better.

What do you dislike?

HATE. THE. CLOUD. Absolutely the worst subscription experience, Adobe should never have gone this route. Different versions of software between mac and PC make it excruciating to edit documents between different users (this is more for inDesign and Typekit issues).

Every time there is an update, it seems like some useless stuff is added and I can't find what I've always used. Where is 'save for web'? I have to access it via the keyboard controls only.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It might be okay for new users, but those of us with 20+ years have seen things get bloated, complicated, and harder to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reducing file sizes for clients. Making transparent backgrounds. Benefit is the website loads faster. RE. the screenshot, am on my home computer so I'm not 'logged in' as it's an older version of Photoshop.

"best program for editing photos and to use for professional work"

What do you like best?

best program for editing photos and use for design. It is very easy to use. You can do almost anything at the same time retouch a photo. especially recommended for bitmap images. You can also edit raw photos or sort the photos on your computer Very nice and entertaining interface.It is a perfect program for professional use. Everything you can imagine while designing or retouching an image can be made with this program. If you study how everything works you have a lot of tools and advantages that you can not imagine. It is a perfect program to pass on your idea to reality.

What do you dislike?

It is not highly recommended for editing vector images. and especially the price is very high, compared to other similar programs that have a lower price or are free.

There is also an annual payment option but I prefer to pay once for a program and not pay a large amount every year. It is a program for general use but to make it work completely you must have done a course. That if you need to have done at least any course to use it to express it to the maximum.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you really want an image retouching or design program to do anything you can imagine, this is your program. It is a perfect program to pass on your idea to reality. That if you need to have done at least any course to use it to express it to the maximum.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

yes, use this program for my work. I used to retouch photos to use in my work and to create my designs for my clients. 229/5000

With this image retouching program you can solve many ideas that you have at the same time to tweak images or design and you do not know how to translate them into the paper. Knowing how to use it means you can easily transfer your ideas to reality. It has helped me translate many ideas from clients into reality

"Exceeds Editing Needs"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of functions to Photoshop. The program doesn't slow down my Mac nor does it take long to update. It's one of the industry standard software systems that every designer should use. And the layout is customizable so that it best fits your needs. The way Adobe implements its software makes it much easier to use rather than other software. For a long time, we were using other free software that wasn't as easy to implement across various systems. Adobe is worth the price that we pay.

What do you dislike?

I only wish that there were more tutorials available for each setting and aspect that you can use for Photoshop. The Sky is the limit with the possibilities but it would easier to get a grasp with more in-depth tutorials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Implement more tutorials on all of the capabilities that Photoshop can do. There are a plethora of creative projects that can be accomplished with Adobe alone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Photoshop a lot when it comes to enhancing images or creating art for Video Game proposals as well as of concept ideas.

"An easy-to-use program for professionals"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Adobe Photoshop (speaking of its latest version, CC 2018) is its relative ease of use and how well it works. It has many simple features to master, although due to the large number of functionalities can be overwhelming. It works in an exceptional way and manages the PC resources very well, being able to work even in computers of medium-low range.

What do you dislike?

It is not a product for everyone. Both for the price and for the features it has. It is a product thought and recommended to students or professionals of design and photography. There are alternatives that compete with Adobe Photoshop, such as GIMP, but that do not reach the level of Photoshop in terms of user experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a quality product that will meet all your needs in terms of photo editing. As a personal comment, it is my favorite photo editing program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to create excellent photo editions and drawings with the graphic tablet.

"Adobe photososhop"

What do you like best?

La posibilidad de retocar y dar otra perspectiva a una imagen así como personalizarla y hacer multitudes de variantes con paletas, pinceles, luz, curvaturas....

What do you dislike?

Lo más complicado ha sido escoger de tantas variaciones las que más se ajustaran a mis necesidades, tal que se necesita un tiempo considerable para saber donde está lo que realmente quiero. Dentro de sus múltiples opciones, aunque reconozco que es accesible su manejo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es un producto versátil y aunque se necesita practica el resultado final es inigualable, recomendado a toda persona que quiera decir mucho con solo mostrar una imagen o secuencia de estas. Manejar un sin fin de posibilidades y poder mostrar, mejorar y plasmar esa parte artística que todos tenemos, con la ayuda e ideas que nos muestra e invita este programa a descubrir en sus múltiples pestañas así como todos los tutoriales que podemos encontrar, estudiar y aprender de ellos.

En mi opinión no solo creo que sea recomendable a todas aquellas personas que estén interesadas a nivel comercial o profesional, considero que es igual de gratificante, o más, en el ámbito personal. Poder desarrollar esta apreciada afición con Adobe Photoshop como usuario desinteresado aunque sin duda el resultado final y satisfacción que nos aporta será más que suficiente para invitar y seguir utilizando este programa .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En mis practicas he tenido la oportunidad de mejorar mis proyectos así como presentaciones; personalizarlas y ajustarla a lo que he querido transmitir

"Best Editing software"

What do you like best?

I can easily edit photos, create art, retouch product photos, images from raster to vector, photo manipulation and many etc. that what I can do in the Adobe Photoshop easily and creatively. I like photo editing and transformation effect in photoshop. Photoshop containts lots of advanced option like. 1) Photo Restoration 2) Product Retouch. And the Besthing is water mark remover. It is really and head ache when we get the watermark of the software on our edited photo. But photoshop provides that functionality as well.

What do you dislike?

Photoshop is simple to use but it is not more useful for beginners if there is no tutorial available then. It is the photo editing software for professional people who use it on daily basis. You will take a long time to learn the whole photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend people to use the photoshop for editing purpose. This is the one of the best Editing software on the global market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Adobe Photoshop to design my website logo. Also it is very usefull when you editi your personal photos. Once you get use to with photoshop then everything is benifical for you.

"Surpasses competition - powerful for everything image editing"

What do you like best?

The variety of tools is easily the best feature. There's a tool for everything I need - even tools I didn't know I needed. Sometimes I can find the answer to design problems just by messing around with the available options. Photoshop is very versatile. More so, once you've had a little time to get used to the tools, everything becomes pretty intuitive, and these skills cross over to other Adobe software (for example: layers, effects, the pen tool, all cross over well to Illustrator).

What do you dislike?

The brush tool lags a LOT on slower PCs. I have a decent gaming PC right now which I use for my design work as well - the brush tool is fine at the start, but once there are lots of layers or a lot of effects on screen, it starts to slow down. I'm not sure what the cause of this is, but it makes drawing directly in Photoshop with a tablet a bit cumbersome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is simply no equal. If you only need something for basic tasks, Photoshop isn't necessary, but if you are a serious professional, get Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It simplifies every image editing and creation task I have and gives greater control over something like Word for making brochures and other printouts. I also love that I can mass-edit files with recorded actions - I've done entire contracts with this alone, just letting the action run on my PC while I made lunch.

"El mejor programa de edición de fotos"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de Photoshop son sus múltiples opciones, que te permiten ejecutar un amplio abanico de posibilidades en cuanto al retoque y edición de fotografías. No requiere una máquina muy potente, pudiendo ser usado en cualquier ordenador tanto actual como con unos años de antigüedad. Los atajos son muy intuitivos ( M para mover, E para borrar...).

Es muy importante tambien la posibilidad de poder cambiar entre CMYK y RGB, ya que aunque, a simple vista, puedan parecer el mismo entorno, a la hora de presentar un trabajo a un cliente o en caso de ser necesario imprimir dicho trabajo, hay que tener en cuenta cual de las dos opciones es mejor para el soporte final.

What do you dislike?

Lo peor, a mi juicio, son tanto los tiempos de carga como los tiempos de guardado. Me explico, a veces se lleva minutos hasta que consigue abrir un archivo, sobre todo los grandes archivos que manejo de cientos de megas. Es lógico que tarde tanto, pero podría optimizarse para acelerar estos tiempos. Igual ocurre cuando guardas archivos muy pesados, se pasa muchos minutos en el 99%, pero supongo que son cosas nimias.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dadle una oportunidad al periodo de prueba y os convenceréis por vosotros mismos del gran programa que es.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En cuanto edición y retoque fotográfico no hay otro mejor, al menos para mi gusto, siendo Photoshop el programa que más utilizo y el que me salva el día en muchas ocasiones.

"A must-have tool"

What do you like best?

It's one of the best options if you work in design. It allows you to create almost anything but, of course, you need previous knowledge so you'll have to learn about it in order to be able to use it. I also like that it allows you to do very basic things such as cropping images or resizing them in a matter of seconds. It's also great that you can save the images for webs, which is great if, like me, you basically work creating websites.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure it's a bad thing but it has too many options. Sometimes it can be difficult to find specific tools because there are so, so many options that they're difficult to find. It's not the most intuitive platform in the world really. You really need to take classes or learn for yourself in order to be able to use it correctly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider taking some classes because the truth is that, even if it's a great platform with many options, you'll need some knowledge to be able to use it properly. You can also look for tutorials on the internet because there are many of them which are very useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We design many things for our clients so Photoshop allows us to design anything we want either for websites or printing. I'm sure it has many more benefits than the ones I've realised so far but, like I said, it has so many options that I still probably don't know many of them.

"The tool that all designer should know"

What do you like best?

Photoshop is 'the' tool when we are talking of photo editing. When you start learning about design, as a kid, every online tutorial you'll find online is with Photoshop –or its brother Illustrator–. So the usage of this tool worldwide is really huge. This has made that Photoshop has become so powerful with so many features and options that will make your life as a designer so much easy. Not to mention that there is so much information on the Internet that if you don't know how to do something with Photoshop you surely will find a good tutorial somewhere. Although it has some pro features I always keep using the basic ones: shapes, pen tool, colors, photo adjustments,...

What do you dislike?

It's an expensive tool. They has made up a 'cloud' system, lately, but it's still an expensive tool. With so many powerful tools out there, like Sketch, that costs a lot less than Photoshop it's incredible that they still maintaining those high prices. I know that this is a really powerful tool but for the smallest agencies and studios it has become impossible to pay its price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great tool if you are a photographer or a designer, but it's a expensive one. It's become so popular that it's impossible not to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it basically for photo editing, for creating gifs, for designing banners or even for web design, although it's not the best tool for this purpose. You can almost do anything you want with photoshop!

"Analisis del mejor programa de edicion"

What do you like best?

La interface de edicion es lo que mejor me ha parecido. Puesto que la empresa creadora del software, ha dedicado bastante a mejorar la facilidad general de edicion de fotografias, lo que hace que no sea tan complicado mejorar las fotografias

What do you dislike?

La complejidad de algunos puntos del programa es lo que menos me ha gustado, puesto que resultaba dificil en algunos puntos, poder retocar algunos aspectos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo photoshop a otros usuarios, puesto que es un programa en general facil, que nos permite retocar las fotos de una manera muy profesional y esta disponible en todos los sistemas operativos y no supone un gran gasto para el bolsillo del consumidor, puesto que por todos los aspectos que trae el programa y las ofertas que suelen tener, nos puede venir muy bien para crear contenido con una sencilla pero potente herramienta.

Por otra parte al ser un programa muy conocido a nivel mundial, nos permite tener todas nuestras dudas resueltas, ya sea en foros de la propia compañía, o en paginas web tales como youtube, donde otros usuarios mas experimentados solucionan dudas y ayudan a mejorar el nivel a los dmas usuarios del Adobe Photoshop. Yo desde luego lo recomiendo

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Estoy resolviendo problemas de fotografias que necesitan ser mejoradas y me ha ayudado mucho, puesto que tambien a la hora de aportar un punto diferente a las fotos, he usado muchas facetas del programa que no disponen otros programas.

"Why Adobe Photoshop is Incredible "

What do you like best?

The ease of use when it comes to Adobe Photoshop is outstanding.

What do you dislike?

The application can crash if the files you are working with are considerably large which can make using this application difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fantastic service from Adobe and all of their other applications and programmes are outstanding. Brilliant value for money and around the clock support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The fact Adobe gives the user the opportunity to work with others at the same time, for example, my team are able to collaborate on the same project whilst each using their own computer/laptop. This allows the design process to be quicker than usual.

The dynamic link is also a positive attribute of Adobe as a whole, meaning I can edit the same piece of work in different Adobe applications and have the changes be made in real time across all of their products. This again speeds up workflow, but is also a huge bonus as I am able to work on multiple things at once. An example of this would be when editing an image that I then need to animate and bring to life.

Without Adobe, I don't know where myself, my team, or my company would be!

"Thee Best Photo Software Available"

What do you like best?

What I really love about PSD is that I can take a crappy photo and make it look better with adjustment tools like color balance and highlight balance.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I dislike is that it is not a simple software to teach others to use, perhaps because it is so robust... but this really isn't my problem, as it is for colleagues who haven't had training with the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download a trial and play around with it to see if it will meet your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems I am solving with the tool is taking action photos and enhancing them with the software, which is great because we don't have a professional photographer, and photo shoots are on the spot, and we are left with less than presentable photos until we use PSD. The benefits are not having to do another photo shoot because the enhancements look great on the corporate website.

"An essential tool for photographers"

What do you like best?

Being a long time user of Photoshop, the new 2018 version has too many amazing things to mention. Some of the best things about the product would be the LR photo tab which gives me access to all my Lightroom photos via cloud, the smart sharpen tool, and Actions which is completely essential when editing many photos.

What do you dislike?

Again, there aren't many things to dislike, but if I had to nit pick, I'm usually editing multiple photos per session and the tabs get very cluttered. It would be nice to see a solution to help keep me organized when having multiple windows opened.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Being skilled in Photoshop has helped me immensely. It's a powerful tool that can be used in so many different facets that I would highly recommend, at the very least, learn the basics of this power tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Now with the use to Page Cloud I can design all my websites via Photoshop. This is huge. Web design can be extremely expensive for start ups but having such a robust app like Photoshop it allows me to get creative and save a ton of money. Being adept in Photoshop has helped me immensely in so many ways. From creating unique resumes, to creative pitches, I have been able to excel in my field.

"The industry standard for a reason. "

What do you like best?

Photoshop is used in the vast majority of professional photographer's workflows for a reason. Personally, it is my software of choice for retouching primarily headshots, portraits, and commercial/product photography. The new 'smart' AI tools that have been integrated over the last couple of years, including content-aware fill and the like are huge timesavers when attempting tasks like extending a background or fixing tricky areas of an image. Integration with Adobe Lightroom is also incredibly helpful.

What do you dislike?

Photoshop can be prone to crashing, and customer service is not always that helpful. I've had times in the past where it simply refused to run on my computer for weeks at a time and I was basically given support to the tune of 'did you try turning it off and back on again'.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Photoshop is less of a problem solver and more of a necessity for me. I use it all the time as part of my photo editing workflow, and essentially couldn't run my business without it.

"Photoshop is AMAZING!"

What do you like best?

I have been a photoshop user for years and I love that they continually advance and listen to what their users need and update their program accordingly. I love that the adobe photoshop community is so helpful with one another. You can go onto the forums to ask other users to help you figure out a way to solve the problem or to figure out a faster way to do things. You can search youtube for tutorials that can take you through step by step. Photoshop is so used by designers because of the effectiveness

What do you dislike?

I dislike how they are doing everything cloud based, I'm not sure how it will be in the future and if it will be synced a little better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With the majority of adobe products you can do a MONTH long trial run of their software. So definitely try it out and view some tutorials on their forum or just browse the internet. Almost every person in design uses this product so you will never be short of new things to learn, also if you are in a jam you can figure it out and be taking through everything step by step by other helpful users who share their knowledge through videos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving all the design work with this program. Anything that saves you time and is easy to use and you don't have to use multiple programs for is a great thing.

" It is an excellent tool for my office!"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Adobe Photoshop is that it is a very extensive and updated program that allows me to improve my graphics or designs in a very simple way, its last update has been excellent since it makes my work done faster and can give an immediate response, I love all its functions, I improve my images and designs in an immediate way and I do not require more training to be able to use this tool.

What do you dislike?

What I like least about this program is that I must have a very good computer because this program is often very heavy and if my computer is not fast it can affect me when I want to successfully complete my work since the computer does not will work correctly due to the heavy program, another thing I have noticed is that the updates are not fast however it is an excellent tool to make improvements to my images!.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very good to perform high demanding jobs, if you want to improve images, photos, graphics among others this program is ideal for it and so you can get great results and quality jobs!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main advantages of this program is that it has helped me a lot at the moment of wanting to improve certain designs and I have achieved it in a practically perfect way, obtaining an optimal final product and that gives extra value to my activities !!

"Necessary"

What do you like best?

I love how powerful it is. It is also fairly easy to learn tips, tricks, and workflow automation tutorials from a plethora of YouTube videos, online forums, or many other resources available if you know what to search for or question to ask.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how Adobe made this a cloud-based subscription-only software. I am more comfortable with owning the product (no matter how expensive) rather than a never-ending subscription, since I know I will be using this during my whole career.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your work is more intensive than going beyond simple edits of brightness, contrast, saturation, and sharpness, but requires retouching either in the subject or background at the very least, Adobe Photoshop is the best out there. Despite Gimp being a free open-source option, I find Gimp to be very un-intuitive with a difficult learning curve that I could not adjust to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prior to my hiring at this organization, employees were using Google Photos/Picasa or Canva to make light adjustments with the technical skill they had. I was able to elevate this by photo-merging, removing blemishes/distractions from photos, fine-tuning color, or creating original photo pieces.

"Is It Real, Or Is It Just Photoshop? — The Only Way to Finish Your Photos"

What do you like best?

Photoshop is an art director's best friend. It's the natural next step after Lightroom, and it's the only photo manipulation software worth your time. From the decades old keyboard shortcuts to the array of filters and easy color selection tools, such as the wand and lasso, there is no more intuitive or convenient way to fix image errors, combine or add photos, or alter the content of your photo for any purpose. Plus, as part of the Adobe Creative Suite, it integrates perfectly naturally into the Adobe eco-system, making it super easy to roundtrip files to InDesign or After Effects.

What do you dislike?

There's honestly not much not to like. I do feel like the GIF and movie creation process is clunky and out of place in Photoshop. Motion should be kept in After Effects, and it unnecessarily clutters the UX/UI and processing of Photoshop. Otherwise, the program has gotten so good over the years that it's hard to ask for more at this point. I would love to see more automation and intelligence built into the program for color keying or for selecting and removing items from the image (for instance, imagine if we could one day use deep learning to click on a person in an image and have photoshop automatically perfectly outline that person, and then adjust the selection based on how an artist were to move or attempt to fill the selected area). Aside from not being able to advance the future fast enough, there's really nothing else not to like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a look at Lightroom as well, as they go hand in hand, and Lightroom is really the best use for color and processing raw files right out of camera.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Photoshop to touchup images, smooth textures, combine images, integrate graphics for still images, etc. after initially processing in Lightroom. I also use Photoshop to mockup images or create pitches for what an envisioned shot should like. There's a billion reasons I use Photoshop, really, and it's on my dock for nearly daily use.

"Lots of great features"

What do you like best?

So many different features and tools that I don’t even know where to begin. This program is very adaptable for any type of imaging needs from photo editing to image painting or drawing. The new select subject tool is pretty awesome and significantly reduces the amount of time it takes me to mask out a background.

What do you dislike?

Adobe doesn’t have good customer service and that you are basically forced into a subscription to have this program. Adobe as a corporation has pretty shady business practices and I have had much trouble with their subscription program. But I can't really live without their software because I haven't found a robust, all in one program option like theirs so I'm stuck.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great program with lots of features. But if you just need a program for minor photo editing this may be too powerful for you. I would recommend checking out Adobe Lightroom or another photo program. Also, Photoshop Express is a standalone program. But if you are looking for a very powerful photo editing program, this is the one for you. There is so much you can do with it from photo editing, batch processes, automation, digital drawing and painting and more!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photo editing and clean up. The tools provided make masking out backgrounds so we have white background images really easy.

"Photoshop supports many of my creative needs. I love all things Adobe."

What do you like best?

Photoshop provides the opportunity to manipulate photos–allowing me to perfect images for advertisements (filling in grass where dirt patches may live, removing telephone wires, replacing subjects facial expressions so they aren't the only one not smiling in a photo, etc.) I appreciate how Photoshop supports me in a variety of creative needs, even beyond photo-editing, such as gif animation, resizing of photos, creation of web ads and graphics, creating unique work for import into InDesign. I love how PS integrates with all of the CC software, and layers can be dragged and dropped and cut and paste from one program to another.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, in my personal workflow and software needs, I haven't actually come across any issues with Photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PS is a solution for multiple creative needs; it is not limited to the editing of photography! PS also integrates with all of the CC software (i.e. layers can be imported, dragged and dropped, and/or cut and paste from one program to another.) This is helpful in creating an efficient workflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned previously, having the means to create animated advertisements is an important feature for me. I use PS often to resize and recolor images for print vs. web.

"Clean and effective interface with a plethora of tools and possibilities!"

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility that Photoshop has -- I've been using this program for four years, and I've yet to learn it all. It can be used for graphic design (like a lighter version of Illustrator), photo editing, and photo manipulation. Also super handy when it comes to simple screenshot edits, if I need to block out a name or two.

The user interface is simple and clean, not at all overwhelming, and runs very smoothly on both my cheaper laptop and my desktop. I've never struggled with lag, and photos export quickly even at huge file sizes and 100% quality. I'm surprised that this program is so light, when it packs such a powerful punch.

What do you dislike?

Not the most intuitive program ever -- I still find myself googling tutorials very often. A lot of tools/options/settings are hidden within the upper bar; honestly, not sure what a lot of these do. My biggest gripe with this (and all Adobe products) is that there isn't a clear tutorial/guide to reference when I have these questions; most of the time, I resort to help from Reddit/Youtube because the Adobe help isn't specific/detailed enough.

Similarly, the program often doesn't run as I expect it to run. I'll try to export an image as a png only to have the option greyed out, and there isn't a prompt that will tell me why I'm unable to perform this action; again, I resort to Google.

Kind of annoying that the program isn't welcoming to newer users, but this is to be expected when it has a lot of complex options. Just wish the user education was better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A somewhat steep learning curve after you get the basic toolbar down, but so useful and flexible. Is great for every possible quick edit you'd need to do to an image.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work for a newspaper, so when InDesign doesn't have enough creative options for our more fun features and pieces, we turn to Photoshop! Because there are so many visual tools for us to play around with (inDesign is juvenile in comparison) and because it's easy to port from one Adobe program to another, Photoshop has served me well. I love being able to warp text and images freely, having a working and simple gradient tool, and having my blending options.

"Long-time Photoshop user & loyal customer for life!"

What do you like best?

I have been using Photoshop since my family first had a computer, and I am completely loyal to it. I can't imagine using anything except for an Adobe product for all of my photo editing needs. It has every tool I could possibly need, and then more! It's easy and intuitive to use (I taught myself!).

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I can't think of anything that I dislike about this product. I really enjoy using it. There's absolutely nothing that I would change. I guess sometimes I feel like it slows down my computer, but beyond that, it's really a perfect program!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's so easy to teach yourself this program! There are some simple features you can use just to touch up a photo, but you can also go way in depth - there are tools for any of your needs. I love the interface. Everything is located in intuitive places, and it works so well for my needs as a journalist. Highly recommend using Photoshop for all of your company's photography needs! The perfect program for sure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work as a journalist, so I use Adobe Photoshop to edit all of the photos that go into my articles. I also use it to create various templates and graphics, particularly for the quizzes and slideshows on our website. It's a huge help in everything related to photography, and I can't imagine going through the work day without it.

"Excellent and dynamic software."

What do you like best?

Helps me a lot. It's the best program that can be invented, it's great, I enjoy it to the fullest. It allows me to make an image editing quickly to be intuitive and to persuade that it has many functionalities in which a lot of preparation and practice is needed to know how to handle them properly. A lot of help is needed to understand some features, since it is not made for beginners. It has a very good attention for the user. It grants the projects agility, technique and easy and fast handling.

What do you dislike?

Changes in its interface may bother some.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very complete software. It has a lot of features and utilities. the tools are of great help for the professionals, providing a quality and fast work. Excellent in general. I like it a lot I think it made my job a little more comfortable and pleasant. Although it is a bit difficult to understand at the beginning when you learn to use it, it helps a lot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help to increase productivity and decrease of time for the design, modification and edition of images or creation of advertising banner or logos.

"Staple for any designer"

What do you like best?

The Adobe products are really the original design products and will almost always be the most up-to-date when it comes to features and improvements. The other good thing about using the Adobe products is that since they are the main product used by designers, you can usually be assured that your documents will be compatible with other designers and companies since they will most likely be using Adobe as well.

What do you dislike?

The only downfall to using the Adobe products is that they are priced to match the fact that they are the best. There are discounts for students and businesses but it could be hard to afford for a personal user or a very small company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I definitely see it as a must have for any company/person who has a hand in any design aspects. Even if you may not be using it to create files yourself, you'll find that it is nice to have when reviewing or receiving PSD files from others that you would not be able to view/edit without having the program. Try your best to find some kind of way to qualify for a discounted price, such as verifying that you are some type of student or getting your company to purchase a business account.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Adobe Photoshop while working on direct mail pieces, email marketing, branding, and social media. The Creative Cloud version of Photoshop has been helpful in sharing brand standards and elements (ex. fonts, Pantones, logos) between users in our organization who share our business account.

"Photos You Have to See to Believe"

What do you like best?

PhotoShop is a great tool for making images pop. There is so much you can do within the tool to optimize images into something unimaginable. You are truly only limited by your own imagination within PS.

What do you dislike?

The only downside is that there are so many tools and tricks, that it takes a little while to learn and retain everything. There are certainly features and functions that you'll use regularly, but there are others that are extremely interesting that just take practice to master.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those of you considering using PhotoShop, I say do it. There are so many tutorials online that you can take advantage of to learn the tool and really optimize your purchase. It will seem overwhelming if you haven't worked with a graphics tool before, but if you're familiar with any other Adobe product you will feel right at home in PhotoShop. The layout is fully configurable so that you can make it your own. Once you start diving in and creating your own shortcuts and system preferences, you can really let yourself loose on any image file. For the corporate world, it really comes in handy to build brand standard presets to prevent you from having to do the same steps over and over again. PhotoShop is truly a tool where you can work smarter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With PhotoShop, we look to take stock photos either from a repository or through our own photographers and align them to brand standards as well as build out templated presentations or design elements.

"Best & user friendly software for editing "

What do you like best?

It is an indeed good software for designing & editing that have a slick interface. loads of design tools for mobile and Web. The ultimate in photo correction and manipulation. I love that the adobe photoshop community is so helpful with one another. You can go onto the forums to ask other users to help you figure out a way to solve the problem or to figure out a faster way to do things. Content-aware move and patch. Fast. Video editing. 3D design capability. Synced Libraries. Integrated stock library. Complimentary mobile apps.

What do you dislike?

Gets stuck after opening heavy files. No perpetual-license option. The interface can be overwhelming. Some tools don't show progress bars. Also getting your preferences and settings at the beginning can be a little complex, but that happens with all software for the first time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a must-have for all digital, IT and photo editing professionals. While you can achieve similar results from lesser priced competitors, being subscribed to Adobe you are always first to get continued software updates without having to buy new downloads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I edit, I create and design mockups, create website layouts, with professional results.

"The only photo editing software you'll ever need"

What do you like best?

Hard to say, there is a lot of fantastic features that Photoshop has to offer. No matter what skill level you maybe, there is something for everyone, whether you just want to resize an image or put together an entire composition.

What do you dislike?

It's difficult to pick out things to dislike. Photoshop has always been the only choice for me and I've been working with it for well over 10 years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Photoshop is the only tool I have ever really needed for graphic work. Its the one stop shop for all your graphic needs. It integrates so well with other Adobe products such as Illustrator and formerly Fireworks too. For someone who works in web design and has done for nearly 10 years, Photoshop has always been one of the main tools I use. Whether it's for complicated multi-layered compositions or simply resizing and cropping a photograph. Photoshop covers all bases and has everything you could ever want from a design tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Photoshop quite a bit, mainly for photo manipulation. Nowadays web optimisation is extremely important so ensuring that all images are sized and cropped accordingly and then fully optimised to use in web projects.

"Best Photo Editing Tool on the Market"

What do you like best?

I love using Adobe Photoshop for almost any type of photo or web graphic editing. I am a web developer, artist, and graphic designer, and Photoshop allows me to quickly edit or simply adjust a photo for my needs. Whether for web or print.

What do you dislike?

Most of the things I dislike about Adobe Photoshop is that it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming with all of the tools capabilities that come right at you. Yes, it is a great, advanced tool and maybe pricey which is understandable. But it has a high learning curve, mostly just from learning where the many tools are located and how to use them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to learn how to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits I get from using Adobe Photoshop is getting time back. PS makes it easy and efficient to edit many photos or graphics. It's my one-stop-shop for graphic editing for web and print, for jobs big and small.

"Best photo editing software!"

What do you like best?

I like to have freedom to edit within or excluding the various layers. It makes photo editing so organized and literally anything is possible in Photoshop! I especially like using the lasso tool to select areas for my layers, the clone stamp tool to duplicate info within a photo, and the various brushes on my photos. There are many great brushes that come pre-loaded in Photoshop, but you can also download other cool brushes or make your own.

What do you dislike?

A bit difficult to learn as a beginner. It's very difficult to use the "undo" feature because editing requires thousands of tiny steps, so using the history is much more accessible by navigating back in time more. Also, I'm not good at correcting human makeup/flaws, but I'm still learning!!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch Youtube tutorials and customize your own shortcuts for faster editing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to give my clients multiple style options for their edited photos. If a client wants a certain vibe or effect, literally anything is possible! I have realized the benefit of being able to export photos by deciding to hide or show various layers so that I can actually have several different editing options packed into a single photo / Photoshop file! I can select and deselect which option to see at any time, which is nice to be able to toggle back and forth to show my clients, or export them and send to clients that way.

"So much I haven't even explored yet. A lot of features I'm excited to learn."

What do you like best?

I love that there are so many features in this program. There is still so much I haven't learned and so many tutorials on the web that can teach me. There are also many free features that can be downloaded and shared with other creative people as well. Best part is that someone can save a whole setting and I can replicate it easily if it is shared.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how slow it makes my computer run when I need other programs. Sometimes I need to connect to the internet or use other applications. This is especially so if using 2 programs from Adobe. For example, using Photoshop and Illustrator simultaneously is difficult at times and really bogs down my computer if I need to look something up online at the same time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I consider using this program. THe cloud version I say would be the best one available as it is so easy to access from different places.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can create flyers, event tickets, business cards, t-shirt designs or anything that requires design. I have really had a lot more freedom using this program than others. This one allows me to make sure that the print does actually go into a bleed feature vs using other design programs that are difficult to set in this manner

"Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!"

What do you like best?

This is one of the funnest programs out there to play around on. You think you can do so much and then you realize you can do so much more, you are definitely only limited to your imagination. If you suite subscription then you will always have the most up to the date version.

What do you dislike?

The price of this is kind of steep if you are a freelancer or student. A lot of people use this at their schools or work place but are not able to bring it home to work because they can't afford to have it on their own. I heard that they have a photographer's package but that only includes photoshop and lightroom, if you want the other programs like Illustrator and InDesign then that will cost you more than a lot of people can afford.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try it out, they offer free month trials and there is no shortage of tutorials and forums out there that will teach you anything and everything you would want to learn from this program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has definitely made my business designs more creative, and even my personal designs for my portfolio is much better because I can make it more stylish and the work is more impressive.

" The editing and creation of images has never been easier."

What do you like best?

It is a very complete application, it has everything you need to edit or create an image of nothing, work as a tattoo artist and use Photoshop to create designs, and show the client how the work will be, I can also apply the design to a photo the client has precise idea of ​​the place to apply the template, if it looks good and has movement. The uses are infinite only limits our imagination.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike any of the application, but if I had to say something bad, it's hard to learn to use it, but it has so many tools that I lost when I used it. Once you learn the uses that can be given, they make my job much easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the best application, totally indispensable for photographers and artists, the use of the app is unlimited. It is simply the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It completely facilitates my work, I edit, I create and I combine images with a professional result.

"All Purpose Editing Tool"

What do you like best?

Photoshop is the leader in editing software for a reason. It can do a lot of things, and like all the adobe products you can use in tangent with one another. The layout is pretty much similar across the broad so if you are using their products then when you hop on to another product you'll get the hang out of it super fast. I love that I can easily change my designs and have a quick turnaround for projects. Love that all adobe products are easy to use and easy to learn with, especially photoshop.

What do you dislike?

If you are working on a project and adobe updates and it has some bugs or issues that it hasn't solved yet then it really will crank your style and rhythm and put a major bump in your project. You'll be scratching your head like what the heck happened. The fix them right away but it is super annoying when you are working on something and it needs to be completed immediately and you have this speed bump in the way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Free trials, and google tutorials for something. Everyone uses photoshop so there are video tutorials galore. Learn shortcuts, and more!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe photoshop has a stock library of images. So I don't have to go spending my money on images that I can use instead I can utilize theirs or test some ideas out on free images. That saves me so much money and time since I can tweak projects and see how things are before investing in more time and money.

"Simple and easy"

What do you like best?

I have learned how to use Photoshop since I was in High school. I always though that editing photos was going to be difficult. I find the use of photoshop to make it simple. Even creating website template within PS is simple. All the tools are easy to use.

What do you dislike?

There is not a lot that I dislike. One thing I would say is performance tools need to be simple. I notice on my Macbook Pro is that my computer tends to get super hot faster than any other software. I have changed the settings to help with this, but I still get the same experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The software is designed for what you want to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Excellent tool in the designer's belt"

What do you like best?

Photoshop is the core of the adobe suite and should be a required program for all designers, web developers, photographers and artists alike. Very versatile - if you only have time to learn one program, learn photoshop. Edit photos, create designs for print and web, edit non destructively with layers and masks.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations in terms of print settings, multiple pages/artboards are clunky but thats why you should use inDesign or illustrator for more than one page designs etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take time to learn how to use all the features as there can be a steep learning curve. Also keyboard shortcuts are key! They speed up workflow a lot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to create great designs that are web and print ready, working in pixels is great for digital projects. Editing photos is easy so images so clients can have the best imagery for their marketing materials.

"So much is possible in Photoshop"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to get to the final result your after, in a variety of different ways. I know that my co-workers and I all have different tools and presets that we prefer, but we're still able to finish our designs or alterations with wonderful results.

What do you dislike?

Getting your preferences and settings at the beginning can be a little tedious, but that happens with all programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is SO much to learn and so much that can be done in Photoshop, try not to get overwhelmed and try out as much (or as little) of the program that you'd like. It's amazing!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are certain things that can only be done in Photoshop. Sometimes there are things in a computer rendering that have to be changed after the final file has been saved and using Photoshop can save a ton of time and money (as opposed to re-rendering a huge file).
