I worked for years with a group of, let’s call them people, who would insist, and I mean absolutely insist, that they could not do specific functions of their job without Photoshop.
Can’t do it. Not gonna happen. We need Photoshop.
This job entailed, as far as I could tell, opening and closing pictures. And from the quality control side of things, I would argue that they didn’t even look at them, but that’s another post. In the end, we had to waste thousands of dollars on Photoshop licenses because they were able to convince the right people.
Gus Mueller, of Flying Meat, has put together a great image editor that has just been updated and made even better. Why anyone would spend all that money when Acorn is available for $29 is beyond me.
