Now I find myself using Illustrator and inDesign more for logo designs and creating flyers. Anyone else out there using them?

    Well you should try it. Photoshop is all pixel based and the other are vector based. Big difference in the quality of your work when printing.

    No doubt Photoshop is king when it comes to graphics but for logo and ads anything print worthy would be best done with AI and ID.

    Yeah I'm learning graphic design right now and I agree with this. The good thing is skills in one Adobe program tend to overlap into other ones.

    yeah, you should have been using illustrator and indesign from the start for that kind of thing. I don't touch photoshop unless I'm touching up things that I already created (vectors, banners, and of course photos). As far as logos, illustrators ability to make vector graphics is second to none. Plus if you know illustrator, it makes learning photoshop much easier.

    indesign = books
    Illustrator = vector
    photoshop = graphics
    dreamweaver = web 🤬

    I had experience wit the whole adobe suite in college. Everything they've said is right on point, indesign was a 🤬 for me though I hated indesign & I kinda hated dreamweaver too even though that was a whole lot easier than just hand coding 🤬 . We learned how to design the web layout in photoshop and then make it into a live web page with dreamweaver which was pretty tight. When it comes to the Adobe Suite, photoshop is boss.. you can do pretty much anything in photoshop and then export it into the other programs by just the click of a button. Even the video editing 🤬

    I learned In-Design & Illustrator a bit in college. But I havent used them since, I really need to rehash those skills. Alot of places look for designers to be really good with all 3 programs. Bout to cop me an In-Design & Illustrator for Dummies.

    Man I've been checking out some of the fanmade covers dudes make with these programs and it has me wanting to dabble in this a bit.

    I think that would look a lot better if done in illustrator though. ^
