Photoshop, mainly just because i need it to do my job
I frequently use Illustrator for complex vector artwork.
Adobe Illustrator all day everyday. More so than Adobe Photoshop although I love Photoshop. But right now I'm concentrating on positive and negative space art like logo creation and all things clipart in svg format. I'm a big contributor to openclipart.org and practically live there as well as Deviant Art so I'm a Deviant too. I can't really explain why I like Illustrator so much except to say that I enjoy working with vector graphics. Something about those clean crisp lines and the swirls and working with the width tool and symbols sprayer. I've found myself lost for hours just playing around with making brushes alone. there's just so much there that it can overwhelm sometimes and even overshadow what you're working on. It's the best damn program I've ever owned and can't do without it...and won't either! Yea sure there's other capable programs but nothing beats the best of the best and that to me will always be Adobe Illustrator hands down.
1- Acrobat Pro
2- Acrobat Pro
3- Acrobat Pro
6- Spark Page
Because I'm a PDF forms maker and a (mostly digital) documents maker.
I design packaging, catalogs and ad flyers.
I use mostly InDesign, with Illustrator being a fairly close second, as some printers require Illustrator files. I used Acrobat Pro mostly to check PDF files before sending them to the printer.
I also do a certain amount of photo editing in Photoshop, but far less these days (now that we have two in-house photographers who handle most of that).
Photoshop: Graphic Design, Image Editing
Lightroom: to manage and edit photography assets
Experience Design: Web / Application Design
Illustrator: Graphic Design; logos, signage, print and web graphical elements
InDesign: Graphic Design; layouts for print, books, brochures
Dreamweaver: Web development mostly modified bootstrap templates
Premiere Pro: Video projects
Dreamweaver pretty much 7 days a week as I use it for my job. Other than that Photoshop on an almost daily basis for work and play. I also play around with Capture and the Spark tools. Those would be my main ones but I do use almost all of them at some point.
Creative Cloud Desktop App
Candy Crush Soda Saga (Oh wait, that's not Adobe's)
I teach test programs for my day job and two nights a week at the college.
- Lightroom Mobile
- After Effects
- Muse... the old stable one not the current release
- Photoshop + Bridge... to generate my web images
- Fuse... sometimes with Felix images
every blue moon
- Premiere pro to make the last tutorial I did... actually it did a good job once I got it to behave on my Windows laptop
- Dreamweaver... still the best way to do some server code options ime
- Edge... mostly just to mock up ideas
In order, but Photoshop gets by far the most use here, mainly because I know it so much better than Illustrator, so I always tend to end up using Photoshop for vector work that would be better done with Illustrator.
