    Whether you are an amateur web designer or veteran one, using images becomes compulsory in the projects you get. Apart from web development framework or tools, you also need to use image editors. Now, picking the right image editor can be a tad hard for web designers. Adobe’s Photoshop has ruled the roost for a long time but with time several alternatives have also appeared. As each version of Photoshop became laden with features, Adobe introduced variants of the main tool- such as Lightroom and Photoshop Elements.
    Based on your needs and budget, you can pick from the available variants of Photoshop- if the familiar Adobe workflow appeals to you more than other software! If you are unsure, go through the following analysis to understand which version of Photoshop is ideal for your needs.
    Photoshop Elements: Affordable and versatile
    The full power of Photoshop may not be required by the majority of web design professionals. Beginners in web design may not feel like churning out steep licensing fee and cloud based access either. With Photoshop Elements, you can pretty much fulfill your web graphics creation and editing needs. It is not only lighter on wallet, the app is lighter on your system too! Unless you also need to work in print media, this tool can be used to fulfill your design needs easily.
    Photoshop Lightroom: photographers step ahead!
    Those who are using DSLR camera and are also in web design can think of spending little more and getting copy of Photoshop Lightroom. Apart from editing high resolution images, this app also lets you manage and organize images like a pro. Its support for non-destructive editing makes Lightroom suitable for finicky web design professionals. Other benefits offered by the app include ability to edit RAW images and support for myriads of DSLR models.
    Photoshop CC: The behemoth
    Before Adobe shifted focus to the cloud, Photoshop CS versions were mostly used by the web design and print media professionals. While you may not need all the features in Photoshop CC for web design, the support for plug-ins and feature set remains hard to match till date. The latest incarnation in fact, lets you do much more than web graphics design. It now supports 3D and animation. Web design firms working with tools like Dreamweaver can benefit a lot from incorporating Photoshop CC in their workflow. The licensing fee is not cheap in long run but the users get bang for their bucks.
