Adobe Photoshop is more than an image editor. Few applications have a following as large as Photoshop and a dedication beyond platforms. Photoshop has spawned a whole new industry of plug-ins, and its popularity can be gauged from the fact that its plug-in architecture is an industry standard that is also used by competing applications.
