For a long time, I used GIMP, because I couldn't afford Photoshop. At the time, GIMP worked out perfectly for what I needed done and I still consider it a great free program. However, once I started using Photoshop, I saw all the things that GIMP was missing. I personally think that Photoshop is the best photo editing software out. Do you think the same or do you think it's overrated?

I started with photoshop, I knew about GIMP only when I was alfready using photoshop. Since I had experience with photoshop I did not like GIMP. What I disliked was the floating screen. However, GIMP is one of the best photo editing tool, it is even called free photoshop. Photoshop is not an overrated program, it is actually the best program. There is no limitation on what you can do on photoshop.

Photoshop has plenty of features. However, not many of these features are easy for a new user to master. Unless you are a professional who needs a powerful image editor, you could easily get other software which still meet your needs at a cheaper price.

Photoshop is in no way overrated, I use it everyday and have been creating all kinds of unique stuff with it. A lot of people can't afford it, but it is definitely worth it all. You can even land a job with it if you are skillful enough. I don't think that there is a program that can match Photoshop even in 2017 and there probably won't be one soon, at least not within the mainstream ones. Of course if you're not using it for professional needs, you can always download a free software and work with it.

EVERY ADOBE IS AWESOME indeed

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP is not overrated. Well let's define what "overrated" means; A term used to describe something that gets more hype and credit than it's actually worth(Urban Dictionary). I just want to quote " more credit than it's actually worth", every adobe products is useful, it is exceptional in the field of Web designs, logo designs and even in video editing. Adobe proves that they are "power house"! Every freelancer designer is required by the project holder to use Adobe apps like; Dreamweaver, after effects, illustrator and Photoshop. When it comes to photo editing Photoshop has the best features the brush, pen tool awesome eraser and many more. Photoshop is not that overrated it is indeed the best and right now no photo editing apps can take Photoshop's Throne because of its reliable features. Anyway I'm a graphic designer.:)

So far, Adobe Photoshop is still popular among those people who are not really passionate in graphic design. It is well-known to those people who are just trying to edit their selfie photos and then intentionally upload them to their social media profile for DPs or as an avatar. Graphic designers uses various of Adobes' and/or Mayas' etc. Small printing presses are usually Photoshop users and sometimes they cheaply finish their job through using Microsoft Windows Picture.

I never much got into GIMP, however I have found some killer alternatives to Photoshop for Mac at a much lower price point. Software such as Pixelmator or Affinity Designer.

For me its not overrated, It is a powerful graphics software, you can change any bit of the picture you desire to fit your imagined result as you go along using every tools photoshop have with the combination of your talent and skills.

For my needs, yes, personally I find Photoshop to be overrated. I've yet to run into anything that I would need Photoshop for over GIMP. Back when I was working at a job where employees weren't allowed to install new software without permission from IT, I was even able to get away with using the browser version of Pixlr for a lot of my editing needs.

No, I think it's not overrated. Photoshop is the best photo editing software in my opinion and in my experience using it. The other editing software has missing piece that Photoshop has.

In my opinion, it's not overrated. Photoshop is a very powerful tool that has so much features that you can use to edit photos or do projects that you don't even imagine possible. Like for example, a simple text with typical font can be changed to paper effect or glass effect, 3d effect and many more. Or like, you can make a square-shaped apple, or a person who was originally inside the house can be transported on the beach, something like that. I, personally, enjoyed photoshop although i just know some of its basic features. But everytime I watched video tutorial in you tube, it never fails to amazed me. I am still learning more of it. Hard but enjoyable to do.
