    • Discontinued "It has been five years, the software has stagnated (due in no small part to my becoming discouraged by this one profiteer who trumped me, stole much of my traffic and bumped my site down to the second result when you search for "Gimpshop"). I assumed the guy would just give it up as I sadly let the project stagnate, but that hasn't happened." | Source: http://ask.metafilter.com/144788/What-are-my-intellectual-property-rights-here

Adobe Photoshop Comments

Comment by staffordready
about Adobe Photoshop Feb 2017

It was one of the most functional software ever created. Although the latest update made me worry a bit knowing that it will have you pay more! I really hope I won't or else, I will stay not updating my app!

Overpriced "subscription" to software that doesn't deliver not to mention ZERO customer support from Adobe. 1 Helpful

Negative Comment by tiltedtripod_
about Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements Dec 2016

The only thing going for PS is the historic name. Now its overpriced bloat ware focused on squeezing every dime from your pocket. Small businesses like mine get raked over the coals financially and the customer support is dismal, unless of course you spend a fortune with them which most small businesses cannot. Don't even bother with the Elements line. You will be lucky to get a response in a week or 2 and then you will spend hours with someone who is clueless. Thank god there are some real competitors out there that may bring Adobe back to reality.

Go and get the last retail version CS6 and stay with it forever.

The cloud prices for Europeans are the extraordinary RIP-OFF

about Adobe Photoshop and GIMP Aug 2013

Powerful tool I like to use, does the job. But after getting the hang of GIMP you simply like both, im slowly converting to GIMP. Photoshop is heavy :\ but GIMP may not be fully stable. Stuck between both.

about Adobe Photoshop May 2012

I use this program everyday, at work and at school. It is a must have for anyone dealing with photos or graphics. Its simple enough for a child to draw with, while being complex enough for top notch graphic designers. Nothing will ever come close.
