Pros
The excellent customer support with a whole arsenal of video tutorials. Great Corporate logos and print designs for advertisement, brochures and personal cards are just great.
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 hard to master, with all of the intricacies contained in one program.

"In Photoshop, Sky is the limit."

Reviewed 2 years ago

Adobe Photoshop is still unbeatable photo editing software. Photoshop is one of the best creations of Adobe Company. It's the favorite image editing software for every professional designer. Easy to use for any new bee and you can create anything using your imagination. In Photoshop, Sky is the only limit.

Pros

Adobe Photoshop has been the most used photo editing software for the longest time in the design field. It has plenty of pros that I can describe. The UI of Photoshop is absolutely incredible, and it has a wide variety of features and plugins. Edit photos and graphics it's easy and convenient. In image manipulation, Photoshop will introduce thousands of doors to the creative world. Selecting a subject and removing background from any image is 1 click away from getting a significant result. It has some crazy features like neuro filter, camera raw filter, sky replacement filter, and so on.

Cons

Definitely, Photoshop has some cons like its extreme resource hunter. If your PC configuration is up to date, then it's ok with you. Otherwise, it will take a while to open it, and if the file size is bigger, it will lag. Also, the subscription to this software will be costly but comes out with significant results.

Photoshop is still the best out there

Reviewed 2 years 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.

Pros

I've been using this software since it's very first steps. Overall is a pretty good tool for my job.

Cons

Photoshop 22.1.1 been crashing while opening heif / heic files on my macOS Mojave 10.14.6I, for months now - and after sending the so call "Report", it has NOT been fixed. Its overpriced for all the bugs it's been having for the past 3 years. I feel attached to Adobe after so many years of being a user, but now I'm considering other options.

A Powerhouse for Creative Minds

Reviewed 2 months ago

Exploring Adobe Photoshop feels like unlocking a treasure chest of creative possibilities, where each tool and feature offers a new avenue for artistic expression. The journey through its complex interface and functionalities is challenging, yet immensely rewarding, as mastery brings the power to transform imagination into visual reality. Despite its steep learning curve, Photoshop remains an essential tool for professionals and enthusiasts alike, continually evolving to lead the frontier of digital creativity.

Pros

Adobe Photoshop offers an unparalleled array of tools and features, enabling deep control over digital images and fostering limitless creativity. Continuous updates introduce cutting-edge features, keeping Photoshop innovative and ensuring users have access to the latest in imaging technology.

Cons

The complexity and steep learning curve of Photoshop can be daunting for beginners, making it less accessible for those new to digital editing. Its subscription-based pricing model, although offering constant updates and cloud services, can represent a significant ongoing cost, especially for hobbyists and freelancers.

My Favorite graphic design and image editing software

Reviewed 2 years ago

I use Photoshop to make graphics for Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, website design, business cards, t-shirts and more. Almost any visual creation that my business requires is made by me in Photoshop. I also still do some freelance designing, and photoshop is always my go-to. It's reliable, powerful, technical and feature-rich. The only reason I would not recommend it as a first choice to most people is because most people are looking for an easier to use solution like Canva.

Pros

I love that photoshop is accessible at $9.99 per month with lightroom and storage as a part of the package. I love the endless tools and various ways to combine them to create masterpieces. Photoshop gives the user complete control over their artwork, as opposed to say, a Canva. Photoshop is definitely for professionals who want full technical control over their work.

Cons

What I like least is that the only option for integrated cloud storage is Adobe's Creative Cloud. Having the ability to save directly to Google Drive - or any other major cloud platform would be an invaluable timesaver and productivity booster.
