Photoshop GUI does not match the usability of Photoshop’s

Photoshop can be system intensive meaning if the system it is being used on, isn’t running at 100% the program may glitch and “Lag” making the user less efficient in editing the image. This is avoided by paint. It has a lacklustre amount of features so it is able to run on virtually any computer system.Photoshop uses its own intermediate file type called .PSD, it can take up a lot of space depending on the number of layers used in the image, it is very good however at saving previous edit history and allows the user to keep and edit different layers separately instead of together after being saved multiple times. Other file types do not do this unless made for a certain program.Unlike Paint, Photoshop is available on most popular OS whereas Paint is only available on Windows.

Photoshop has a wide range of tools for professional photo editing. For the price PS is the best bitmap editor for organisations to use due to its unlimited tools which all support transparency.Paint images can only be saved in around 5 different file types, whereas Photoshop has unlimited amounts of different file types to choose from which allows it for use on most platforms in the professional spectrum.Bitmap images allow transparent backgrounds. Although this is a feature of bitmap images Paint does not have an option to allow for the user to select a transparent background which limits its use for applications which have a corresponding background colour. Photoshop however does allow transparency and is implemented easily.

CorelDraw does have this however.InkScape has a huge library (0ver 200) of filters for use by its users. A portion of the filters are greatly CPU intensive and can slow down, zooming, moving illustrations and creating new lines. CorelDraw does not have this option for text filters.

In the event that the user requires specific colour hues, colour shading features, CMYK and divisions at any point, InkScape isn’t the best decision to go with for a vector based program. It is best used for the creation/editing of web graphics.CorelDraw Graphics Suite is very expensive and costs £600 for a single license, this is because it is very widely used in businesses and for commercial use, these customers will have a lot more money to spend on a program which will be making them a lot more money than it will cost them to buy this package.

CorelDraw offers similar guides, rulers and dimensions as InkScape. Although it includes more angle based calculations as well as positioning tools.The Wacom brand is extremely expensive and is built for industry standard use. It offers a fantastic display with a stylus with good economics. The screen has a huge colour range of 87% of RGB colours which will help to display the true colours of images being created/viewed.A flaw in its design is its low battery time of only 6 hours, this means after every day of use the user will have to recharge the tablet which is not the most convenient build feature.The tablet comes with a built in stand to aid the graphics user in getting the best angle to work at to be the most efficient and detailed. This is something the XP lacks in although it can be bought as an addon accessory.

The Mobile Studio Pro is compatible with all versions of Windows and MacOS, although some versions of Linux will not work with this build. This is probably the least used OS out of the three top so it will not matter as much.This tablet is by far the best non expensive tablet on the market coming in at only £300 compared to the Pro 13s £1600. It is very small and light which allows for its easy transportation anywhere you want it to go. Its portability and smallness however comes at the expense of the low resolution screen which is not ideal for extreme detail.It is more complicated to set up then most other tablets and requires 2 USB ports to be free for the tablets cables.

The overall functionality of the tablet is accurate and responsive with only a few buttons to change settings on the go. On the other hand the Wacom make is a lot more complicated with a few more buttons to change different settings which the XP does not include.This monitor has a 4k resolution so displays extra details in images and games played on the computer, this will help for graphics design as the user can see and add a lot more detail to their project. Although the ASUS model is still HD it only has a 1080p resolution and is not as detailed as this 4K monitor.This monitor has a 100% display size which means one pixel is equal to one monitor pixel, this enables the user to spot texture differences which are added by editing and it is also helpful to judge the sharpening.

With this monitor you will also need a very performance intensive graphics card which can display an output of up to a 4k resolution, so if you do not have one of these, this monitor will only perform like a less quality monitor.Compared to the other monitor this has a slower response time which means it is harder to apply details as the mouse clicks and movements are not in real time.

The monitor has an 8 bit colour palette which means it can display a massive 16.8 million colours which helps to display colour details on images edited and created.
