Still at the top,
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS4 (PC) (DVD-ROM)
There are many good image editors available, but Photoshop has always been top of the pile. Whilst other software packages come and go, and fight for market dominance, Photoshop has consistently been number one. I have given this five stars, but in truth that is only applicable to you if you are serious about image editing. For the occasional user it would be closer to one star. Its value is linked to how much you use it. For those whose work or passion takes them into the world of image editing it is the number one must have application. For first time buyers it is not only the money you will be investing in this program but many hours/months/years of learning, so it makes sense to start with a program that is the recognised industry standard. For those upgrading its value will depend how much you think you would use the new features. In my opinion, CS4 is better value than previous upgrades. Simply downloading a trial version from Adobe will tell you more than any review can.
