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

  • “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
