    Usability testing

      Have the folks who write photoshop ever heard of useability testing?

       

      I have been using this product for a couple of years now and I still find the user interface completely baffling. I have lost track of the number of times I try and use something I have found in a tutorial only to spend for ever trying to replicate what looks simple in the tutorial. The usual issue is six months previously I clicked something in a completely unrelated menu which now subtly alters what I am trying to do.

       

      Do not get me wrong the software is feature rich and very powerful but the implementation just sucks.

       

      My latest simple is issue is moving a gradient. With the layer style open I should (I think) be able to drag the gradient? I have seen several tutorials it looks simple how hard can it be ? I try and all I get is a simple beep. Typical. No hint of what might be wrong just a simple beep, beep, beep, beep....
