Which do you use, prefer and why?
I prefer Photoshop mainly because I’ve used it longest and learned it in school. I dont use it for anything Vector though. Straight pixel. Am I the only one? :<
You are absolutely not the only one.
I have both Illustrator and Photoshop and I would be surprised if I’ve opened Illustrator 5 times since I’ve bought it. I do everything in Photoshop.
Like you I use Photoshop exclusively because it’s what I’m most comfortable with, I need to learn Illustrator just because it’s helpful to have the extra tools at your disposal.
