It's intuitive and robust. The user community is brilliant and they have built great plugins, brushes, templates and other tools to help you achieve your goals.

Overall my experience with photoshop has been great. I would definitely recommend it, and the fact that it comes with the tool suite subscription makes it worth the cost.

Cons
Sometimes I dislike that there are just SO many tools that it is hard to learn them all. A class would probably do wonders for someone looking to be versatile in the program.

It delays work and make you feel uncomfortable, especially when you don't know where to do it settings.

Photoshop is still the best out there

Reviewed a month ago

I love it! I've been able to design flyers and ads, edit closed eyes, and resize photos for print. What I love is that you can find tutorials to help you do almost anything to a photo! Other users are happy to share their knowledge and experience. The software can feel intimidating but like everything else, you get better (and faster) with practice!

Pros

Adobe Photoshop has a gazillion useful tools/features if you learn how to use the software. Some of this takes time and getting better with each use. For example, one photo you might want to brighten the background and another photo you might want to crop around hair. With each photo edit, you can learn different tools. Photoshop is still the best photo editing software I've been able to find! I use it for work (editing a magazine) to personal use (editing photos of my family). Even simply making photos brighter is a huge difference!

Cons

I think editing photos and adding filters has gotten a little out of hand. For example "photoshopping" is its own verb/phrase now! Large media companies and celebrities are setting these trends of overediting. It's amazing and scary at the same time that Photoshop has so many tools to completely manipulate a photo.

Adobe Photoshop Editing Program Evaluation

Reviewed 20 days ago

It's good, even though it's not an easy to use program, it's an extremely necessary program in my company, it directly affects the company's production, accelerating some projects that until recently would be impossible to execute quickly. Adobe photoshop is today the main tool used in the company, without it we wouldn't sell some services, so my experience is the best possible, I don't think about switching to another application at the moment.

Pros

Adobe Photoshop is the best image editing and creation program in my opinion, it has all the necessary tools to create, edit, change an image, in addition to being a very popular program in my photography area, causing more service closures for using it in the company. I really like the layout and the various possibilities I have to carry out my activities in the company.

Cons

From the fact that it is a heavy program and causes slowness in some tasks such as exporting a heavier file. It has a slow startup. And one of the most common errors is when opening or saving files.

Adobe Photoshop, the original photo editor still delivering in some aspects

Reviewed a month ago

I have had a great experience with Adobe Photoshop. It is not the most user-friendly program but it is great for editing photos. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good photo editing program who has some experience.

Pros

I liked the way Adobe Photoshop was easy to use and had a lot of features that I could use to edit my photos.

Cons

I didn't like how difficult it was to use at first. I had to watch a lot of tutorials before I felt comfortable using it.

The Best Editing Software For My Content Creation

Reviewed 20 days ago

It is the best software for any starting out or seasoned content creator; I highly recommend it!

Pros

My husband and I are familiar with all of the software's functions, and we use it regularly for many different tasks. I believe this program will be valuable for people in a wide range of graphics-related positions, from beginners to professionals. Photoshop allows you to work with multiple images to create a professional and creative picture, plus many other features that make working with the software straightforward. Comparatively to other tools like Canva, Photoshop gives me extensive control over my pictures.

Cons

It might be somewhat time-consuming to learn all the features, but it's worth it. Please add some professional fonts instead of searching for them on the Internet. My not-so-favorite thing is that the only compatible cloud option available is Creative Cloud. A Google Drive or cloud service like Dropbox would be a significant time-saver.
