Photoshop and Lightroom on a PC with Windows 10??

5 months 5 days ago #689345 by Linda Duncan
I'm thinking about moving away from Mac to PC.  I have concerns about running Photoshop and Lightroom.  How different is it?  I keep hearing that many or depending on who you are speaking too, most photographers use Macs, because they are better for creative people.

Those that edit on a PC, are there things you don't like about editing on a PC?

Very minor differences. Biggest difference I can think of is on a PC you use the ALT key and on Mac you use OPTION key. The transition should be rather smooth.

Define "better"?

Some might not describe me as "creative" but I've been using Windows for multiple decades now, and it's a tool. Nothing more. As soon as you compare LR/PS, the differences disappear (aside from the alt vs. option issue). The editing experience is the same, all else (horsepower, etc) being equal.

I tried using a Mac once (for work, over a year) and really didn't care for it. Have you used a Windows PC? You may not like Windows.

I do have some students on PC but most are on Mac.

When I work on their PC screen, through TeamViewer,
I feel most uncomfortable with the over complicated
interface's layout. Possibly too easy to adapt!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Agree, "better" is tough because this is so based on person experience and preferences.  Me, I like the flow of the Mac.

If you are using Adobe photoshop premium version Creative Cloud All Apps, then you use this software both device PC or MAC. Wherever you use adobe photoshop MAC or PC, remember your MAC or Desktop PC should have a high graphics card, Core i7 install. Then you get a better performance.

Thank you

Hello Linda

If you have a good configuration then you should use any tools. As a Windows user, I love and prefer to use Lightroom. Actually, Lightroom much quicker than Photoshop. 

Thanks

It totally depends on you. Photoshop and Lightroom are both made for pc and Mac. There is no big difference in that. In higher version Pc you will get a great user experience
