Photoshop vs Sketch(photoshopsecrets.tumblr.com)

    I switched to Sketch roughly a year ago and I really dislike opening Photoshop now. I was the last designer at my company to switch, just because Photoshop did everything I wanted and I was really comfortable with it - I saw absolutely no reason to switch. When they finally convinced me to do it anyway, it took me less than 2 days to adjust and I'm really glad I made the jump. It just feels so perfectly tailored for UI Design, without all the clutter that I almost never used in Photoshop. So far I've never been in a situation where I had to go back to Photoshop, I only use it for it's original purpose now, editing photos. I also really dig the fast development cycle compared to Photoshop.

    Sketch was really necessary for the whole industry, it also made Photoshop a much better tool and it will continue to do so. Competition is great, that's why I can't wait to see what Skala will be like!

      I'm on the same page as you, especially with this point here. Photoshops a great program and the capabilities are wild, but it can be a little much if the context you're working in doesn't require most of those capabilities.
