Why do all the pros use Adobe products?
Aug 30, 2014

Hi, Everyone,

I'm testing out some image manipulation/organization software and I'm trying to decide if it's worth switching to Adobe's products on a monthly subscription. I had a question that I figured I'd ask here.

It seems like all the pros use Photoshop and Lightroom. I was wondering if people use them because (1) they are the most popular photo software on the market (kind of like MS Office; there are arguably better office suites out there, but Office is the industry standard), (2) if its more of a peer pressure thing, like other photographers will laugh at you if you don't have them, or (3) do pros use PS/LR because they really are the best products out there? Or is there some other reason?

Thanks for your help!!!
