Here’s what Saulius Dailide, the co-founder of Pixelmator, says about the future of Photoshop and image editing:
“Adobe is Photoshop. Everything else at Adobe is less than great in quality or is outdated, with a few exceptions. I think there is a huge opportunity for developers like us to come up with the next generation of image editing software of all kinds. One thing for sure – it won’t be bloatware.
Surpassing Photoshop in features is easy – it would take two years. The thing is that no one wants another Photoshop with thousands of features. An image editing app without that many features is a tricky thing.
