Ever since photo editing became a part of everyday computing, Photoshop has been virtual pillar of support! Many editors look for alternatives to this extensive program, but when it comes to the crunch, they also support Photoshop. It has become a part of their career trajectory. Over a period of time both Photoshop and Corel draw have consolidated their presence in the world of post processing of digital images globally. The two vital programs have been instrumental in doing tricky things like image masking, hair concealing, and photo manipulation, changing background, extracting subjects, drop shadow, reflections and mirror effects. So when the bar is raised, the creative levels surge. And both companies have been introducing several new features to increase the benchmark for editors.
Image design has also come on the forefront of editing pictures. Let us be honest, that some free edit-ware are also popular like GIMP, Piknik and Picasa. To this list we can add Image design (which is excellent for dramatizing a picture), Paint.net and Seashore. Each has its own USP. But Photoshop is widely used as it is easy to navigate the properties, importing files is simple, instructions to use the features are very easy to understand. They are forever trying to improve their inventory to add more interesting features. Editors who are constantly looking for surprising their clients, the software company give ample opportunity to improve their skills.
Graphic designers are also looking to make classic art with their tools of editing. Hence elaborate software like Adobe Photoshop provides all perquisites for professional work. But all the features may not be suitable for varied graphic designers. Hence it becomes an expensive proposition. But large studios work with several versions of this photo editing software. There are some features that are familiar to all the programs. But the limitations lie in not being able to replicate the new features. Hence smaller players stick to basic programs and are downloaded for free.
