    Hello friends. I am graphic Designer I have used Illustrator and CorelDraw for designing but I found that Photoshop is also being used for designing. I just used it to add mock ups to my designs. Can we use Photoshop for designing purpose.

    Why you switching back to PS when you are already good at AI... Dont know your idea or thought behind this but AI is quite far & good then PS.

    Yes PS has its own effect for designers but if you are new to it, keep your skills at AI unless you have time & willing to learn it.

    Really if you can elaborate it a little that would be great. I have never heard about it. I just use it for mockups.

    Better keep yourself upto AI if you are skilled at it. PS will take your more time to bring in effective results for new designs which are going to make & they are already easy to make with AI.

    Yes you can use Photoshop for designing purpose. It can be used for any types of complex designs , for designing web sites, for editing pictures. you can apply various effects on your pictures. It is good if your have knowledge of Photoshop with coreldraw and illustrator as it adds up on to your skills of designing.

    I won't recommend you to. It is better to use illustrator for vector based designing that Photoshop. Photoshop is primarily used for editing whereas, Illustrator or CorelDraw are market leaders as far as designing is concerned. If you really want to learn about editing, you can learn Adobe PS, but for designing only solutions, stick with Illustrator and polish your skills rather than learning new unless required. :)

    Furqan, Yes you can use Photoshop for graphic designing as well. To understand what you can use PS for and for what not, it is imperative that you know the basic difference between Illustrator and Photoshop. Illustrator basically is used for Vector based designs which you want to be scalable. Example: Logo, Wireframes, Non-image graphic design. On the other hand, photoshop is used for pixel-based designs. Web-designing falls under this category. Photoshop is also an excellent choice when graphic-designing is picture based. In short, both Illustrator and PS can be used for Graphic designing, but it really up to the user and usually selection of tool is governed by the purpose and kind of design.

    Someone suggest me that it would be nice if we stick in one or two software until we master all its function. Photoshop is great in terms of manipulating images and illustrator is good for designing, I'm using illustrator to design a logo.

    Photoshop is a great tool which is also frequently used by graphic artists. I am not a designer but I sometimes use PS for basic layout and design. Based on my experience, PS is easier to use than Illustrator.

    I think the difference between Photoshop and Illustrator is that Photoshop is used if there is already an image that needs to be edited. Illustrator, on the other hand, is used to create vector images. Still, no matter which one you choose, both are great editing software.

    Photoshop has great features to fulfill your all requirements related to designing and developing,as you mentioned that you have some knowledge of designing on Photoshop,then you can easily get the knowledge of other features of Photoshop which helps you to do other works on it.
    As we know that it is also used by designers to develop software and applications.

    It can be pain in ass for the newbie who has no idea how to work on the Photoshop but once you have started learning and adapt all of its features you would started love using it. A good knowledge of it can get you a good earning from many freelancing websites.

    Photoshop is a powerful tool for editing photos or creating web graphics while Corel Draw is used primarily for designing logo, printed graphics and cartoons that use only minimal color. Most of the common edits you do on a photo can be achieved with a single click of a button.
