As a former yearbook staff member, I learned how to navigate my way into using Adobe Photoshop and Walsworth Yearbook Online Design products. I definitely enjoy using both of these tools because it enhanced my ability to create yearbook and photography book layouts. What’s different about these tools are:
- With Online Design, you simply pick out and drag page formats onto the layout whereas with Adobe Photoshop, you have to create a page layout from scratch.
- On Adobe Photoshop, it’s essential to know which tool you have to use in order to copy and paste images onto the page layout (Rectangular Marquee Tool).
- If you are using Online Design to create your yearbook pages, you will eventually realize how it is such an easier product which does not challenge you with your creative skill set to build a yearbook from scratch. Adobe Photoshop challenges you to do the work on your own.
- And with both of these products, you have to create your own background.
Both of these products are amazing but each yearbook member should be assigned to create their own project using Adobe Photoshop because it helps the staff challenge their skill set as well as helping them improve their ability to use different tools they were not able to use before and personally, I believe both products are great because it can give you a whole different perspective in regards to what you can learn from Online Design vs Adobe Photoshop. No matter how different the products are, you can adapt to both in no time. It takes patience, dedication and time consumption.
Which would you prefer? Adobe Photoshop or Online Design? Why?
