I may be buying Adobe Photoshop soon because GIMP, a free and open-source software isn't very good. I am interested in buying Adobe Dreamweaver as well although I am not sure if I am going to make a purchase. Are these expensive software worth it? Are there any cheaper alternatives to Adobe products for Mac?
Yes probably Photoshop is the best image editing software out there but If you have it already it doesn't wroth to upgrade every time they release a newer version. I still use Photoshop CS2 at work and CS5 at home for web layout design and stuff there isn't a big difference.
Thank you for your recommendation. I may be buying Photoshop soon. If I buy Photoshop, I'll make sure not to upgrade every time Adobe releases a new version. Very few shops seems to be selling Photoshop CS.
Yeah the price difference between versions with Adobe has always been a mega scam. Suggest getting an older version of photoshop and dreamweaver. They are good programs though
Once you start to use Photoshop you will easily find out why them is better gimp ,1 week later gimp will be part of the past
I went to a shop and looked at Adobe CS6 Products. It seems to be extremely expensive and way out of my budget. What about Photoshop Elements? How is Photoshop Elements compared to GIMP? The most probable reason of selling Photoshop at a very expensive price is because many companies and people are willing to pay for such an overpriced product. I wish someone would create a free and open source alternative that is as good as Photoshop CS6. GIMP is horrible.
I think buying an outdated version of Photoshop CS would be okay. Since Photoshop is extremely expensive, an outdated version would be cheaper. I am no longer interested in Adobe Dreamweaver.
The answer is a resounding Yes! It is absolutely the best image editing software there is. Once you know your way around it, the interface is absolutely fluid. Yes, there is a lot to learn and a lot of effort to be invested. However, the end result will be so spectacular that you would be willing to put in the effort ten times over.
I use Photoshop for everything from designing game interfaces, to designing various elements of my website or simply retouching the photos from my camera. It can make bad images look good and good images look absolutely astounding. I especially love the content-aware fill in Photoshop CS5. One could get hours of work done within a few seconds. I also love playing with the puppet warp option. All in all, I would definitely recommend it.
