Comments from some of those who selected Photoshop as one of their Top Tools 

“Aside from being the most comprehensive image manipulation software on the market, Photoshop has been my primary go-to tool for my photography and still image creation for reports and presentations.” Rob Wiltbank, 2014

Pre-2013 comments

“What is eLearning without graphics? Do you really expect me to use another graphics editor? I don’t think so.” Tim Kindberg

“I use an old version of Photoshop, but it does everything I need. Took me a while to get my head around it, but now I find it quick and easy. The 2-up display when compressing images is really useful.”  Rob Hubbard

“I’ve been using Photoshop since version 4.0. It is no doubt the best image editing/creation program out there.”  Adam Kosh

“I make a lot of screen dumps, copies of images for reports and so on, Photoshop helps me admirably”  Mark van Harmelen
