I know about the alternatives, but once you begin to work with Photoshop, you see it has endless ways to perform the tasks you want. The only negative part I can say is that it's not very cheap...

I've been interested in Photoshop myself and can see how good it is, but to be honest, the time I purchased one of those combo Photoshop and some other Adobe packages together for an affordable price, my computer memory couldn't deal with how heavy the software was. This was some time ago. And then a couple of years ago when I was ready again to check it out, with a new computer and much more resources, Adobe had every one on a month or year rate, to make lots of money. So that didn't happen either. I wasn't going to subscribe on any plan with Adobe.
Looks like one requires heavy resources for Photoshop, and combining it with other Adobe packages may not have been such a good idea. But that's the reason why I'm on Gimp. I'd have been prepared to pay something for Photoshop, but it was too much. Also most of all it was too heavy for my computer system and one probably would have needed a decent graphics card too if one was serious about creating or manipulating art with Photoshop.
GIMP is super light. For someone however who deals with loads of graphics, if they are involved in developing and creating games, I'd imagine Photoshop would be the only really serious graphics package to consider. I only use it for very light graphics manipulation, and I can't remember when last I've actually used GIMP. Most software these days come with graphics related tools, like WordPress for example, or MS Word. It's only when it gets to logos that I use Gimp, or you do get online software Websites, where they help you to create logos. Not sure how safe they are, but I do take calculated risks at times. Haven't taken one in a long while though.
