Adobe Photoshop is considered as the leader when it comes to photo editing. Even the dictionary expresses the fact to “photoshop” something which means editing of a photo. The software allows you to manipulate, crop, resize, and correct color on digital photos and pictures

Typical use cases are for corporate logos, promotional uses or even personal work, both in print and digital form. Compared to a photo which is pixel-based a vector graphic can be resized easy and would not lose the quality
