Hi folks,

I'm doing IM for my niche. I've spent more time to learn Photoshop to have basic knowledge about it.

I'm going to build an e-book design but if don't use graphic tools like PS then I couldn't do any thing.

so I'm wondering that Is Photoshop worth learning for an internet marketer?

Any shares?

Not only for editing images but you can do more with it, like design logo, banner, product, ebook and adding into your products/services on the internet then you will know why it's very useful for marketers.

Adobe Indesign is perfect for ebook designs
i don't recommand Photoshop for IM ( as the only key ) , it's more useful for photographers
i recommand Indesign for books & illustrator for Logos , banners , templates ...
but it's still important , just take basics & leave the rest

I wanna say something like Rious.Noto.....You should apply your attention to make e-book design in Adobe Indesign. (Even you can make your design in Photoshop) It is important without any question. Many companies today is leading to the hair a marketer with graphic design skill.

Yes it is if you are doing marketing for a photo editing company like me. Having said that its always good to know something more than only any particular thing.

it's pretty easy to learn and if it saves you a few bucks from not needing to hire a graphics "guy" to do a simple banner, then yes, learn it.

I use Photoshop daily because I am a photographer and I design websites.

If you are graphically inclined then I would recommend buying and learning Photoshop. If you are only going to dabble with it then I think you will be better off by outsourcing. Going to places like Fiverr or hiring a designer to create professional ebook covers and graphics will give you better results.

If you don't like to create graphics or edit pictures, you will get a lot better quality outsourcing than what you might create and in the long run, I think it is cheaper.

Same as other, I use photoshop daily. I use photoshop to create static or animated banner ad, I use photoshop to create logo, I use photoshop to edit or manipulates images.

Actually I did not use other application such as illustrator to create logo because I found photoshop can do it all.

You must learn photoshop.

It is certainly worth learning. You can make e-book covers, logos, and all kinds of things. I don't have photoshop but am learning Gimp which is free and like Photoshop. It's got a big learning curve, at least for me. I think I'm starting to get the hang of layers a little better. :)

I like Photofiltre - which is free - has lots of functionality but simpler than Photoshop. But ultimately the weight of the evidence is: Photoshop is best.

I personally prefer using Canva, it's free and you don't need to download software. In my humble opinion Photoshop is not necessary. However, it really depends on what you want to do, if you are really into graphics then Photoshop seems like a viable option. But, if what you want is creating professionally looking images (not editing), then I would go with Canva.

I usually hire someone to do all PS work I need, I never could bring myself to learning it.

Graphic design is a creative job. Anybody can learn it to present their something visually appealing, something in their mind, something to create a vector design. For a internet marketer, you need to promote your brand online, so obviously you can with images and design. And you have no problem to learn, we have YouTube, see the videos and learn it. All the best.

Obviously Photoshop is worth learning because it is the basic necessary skill that a internet marketer should have for better communication. An internet marketer mainly deals with search engine optimization, branding and social media marketing etc,. Prior to that they should have a design skills. For the best practice they need to use design software's like Photoshop and Gimp because they will get to know and understand what goes into a design and allows you to design a basic or simple graphics on their own.

Without a doubt, you should give it a try one day and learn how to use it. It's the best option nowadays for everything.
