    Great idea for the web-designers


      Hi all!


      After almost two weeks of struggle trying to fix our team workflow (after the last Photosop update) I've just found out a great solution which may solve all of our problems related with total Adobe ignorance of their customers needs.


      The app is called Skitch.


      Please familiarize yourself with this blog entry: https://medium.com/design-ux/25545f6cb161

      Skitch vs Photoshop – List of features which Photoshop does not have (but it's supposed to or Adobe's trying to convince us it has):

      • Autosave and versioning
      • Vector editing and pixel perfection

      • Shapes connection
      • Multiple blending options per layer
      • Round to Nearest Pixel Edge (ok, we've got it after 23 years – counting from 1990 as initial release)

      • Linked Styles
      • Exporting Assets (assets, not sliced pixels)

      • Distribute Spacing

      • Grids (no plugins anymore!)

      • Web-optimized Text Rendering (note: ok, we've got it after 23 years – counting from 1990 as initial release but still we must use fixed-render action sets in order to get kind of approximation of proper effect )

      • Real CSS Styles Export (note: ok, we've got it after 23 years – counting from 1990 as initial release but it exports only simplest forms without inner shadows and borders)

          Yes Photoshop is not designed to be a layout  Application, a Web design application or an illustrator or etc .   Photoshop was design for processing Photos. Over the years  Photosop has had many features added.  While you can do some layout and use some vector graphics. Photoshop is still an image processor if not the best one of the best. Photoshop can also ready files for other types of applications.   Use a proper tool for the job at hand. Would you use Skitch to process an image? Photoshop is not Adobe's only product so  I think your statement about Adobe being ignorance of the customers needs is off base.  Adobe may be obnoxioust and ignore customers need in the pursuit of money.

            Not sure... A lot of that sounds like what Fireworks CC could have been/ become... Too bad Adobe killed it off...
