Q&A: What graphics software do you use?

The primary software that many graphic designers use on a daily basis are Adobe Photoshop for photo editing and graphics, Adobe Illustrator for graphics, and Quark XPress or Adobe InDesign for page layout and design. Although Quark XPress was the best layout program for years, InDesign has become the new standard.

These programs are widely used in the industry, are available for both Mac and PC, and files created with them are accepted by all service bureaus. InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat come bundled in Adobe Creative Suite.
