  • Photoshop? -or- Quark?

    Hey Everyone,

    Just a quick question. I'm at work right now and they are looking to purchase some design software. The 2 we are looking at are Photoshop CS and Quark 6.1. Basically I'm looking for feedback as to why purchase one over the other. The main function will be to edit photos, and create print/web images.

    Thanks

    I don't believe you can edit photos with Quark. Quark is a layout program. Unless something changed with 6, I believe I am right. Photoshop is by far the way to go if editing photos is what you are looking for. Hope this helps!

      I was thinking the same thing, but I'm still using Quark 5 so I can't be 100% sure either.

      Seriously, though, I can't imagine why Quark would try to make such a drastic change in version 6 when they haven't even sorted out the bugs they have already!

        Both pieces of software are entirely different creatures. You cannot effectively create webpages or print pages with Photoshop, but you can with Quark. You cannot edit photos effectively with Quark, but you can with Photoshop.

        To be entirely effective, you need both.

            Actually they are totally different, but if I were to choose, I would say go for photoshop, and yes you can do webpages in it, and edit photos, and place text.....

              Thanks to everyone. EV, nice analogy. I've had extensive experience with PS, but not so much with Quark. Sadly most of this office has never heard of Quark, except for the sales guys who don't use Photoshop, hence the reason for debate. At least now I can explain to them what to buy for what purpose. Thanks again.

                      I agree with this sentiment. Graphic design in respect to only doing print work is becoming secondary, and therefore much more competitive. Finding a job that involves some graphic design is a good start...
