Image editor software

Thursday, 10 September 2015  |  Admin

To work with and optimise product photography and packshot images you will need an appropriate software application. We use the full Photoshop application ‘Adobe Photoshop CC’ but this may be an overkill for most people. A cheaper alternative which may be suitable for your general needs is Adobe’s cut down version of Photoshop known as ‘Photoshop Elements’.

Some image software application alternatives you can compare are:

Paid applications:
