Photoshop is probably, hands down the best graphic design software ever invented or maybe that is just my opinion but I am sure that a lot of people will agree. Adobe developed Photoshop in the 90s and have released new versions that never disappoint. Graphic designers use Photoshop everyday to earn a living but they earn that living because they know what they are doing. It took a long of practice and studying to learn to accomplish some of the things that you see online. For some it may have been easy but for most, Photoshop is known to have a steep learning curve that makes the new designers run for easier to use software like Gimp or Corel. Well, I for one can tell you that Photoshop can knock the socks off of the competition if the designer really knows that they are doing.
How did people get so good at Photoshop if there is such a learning curve? First off, it takes time…don’t expect sell your artwork or design of a website because you now have the tool to do it, it takes practice. Lots of hours spent in front of the computer screen learning and ever evolving to keep up with the competition.
