Undoubtedly, the history of Linux and Adobe is quite old, although Adobe has applications compatible with Linux, there are still some programs that are not available for the penguin, such as Photoshop and Lightroom for example. Is it possible to live without these programs on Linux?
When it comes to migration, often one of the reasons cited as a hindrance, especially for those who work in the design area the issue of tools provided by Adobe, this subject has given a lot of mango here on the blog and the channel, and today we will discuss a little more about him.
Undoubtedly, the history of Linux and Adobe is quite old, although Adobe has applications compatible with Linux, there are still some programs that are not available for the penguin, such as Photoshop and Lightroom for example.
Undoubtedly, many people who start learning about graphic design, start learning through Photoshop, or learn how to create internet video through Premiere or After effects. So when we migrated to some Linux distros, we ended up missing these programs, or even failing to migrate without them.
As we have said a few times here on the blog and even on the channel, we often find linking the desired end result with a particular program used and not exactly the program that brings you this result, but the features found in it. This means that we should look for the features when we migrate and not the names. You can use programs like GIMP instead of Photoshop, Inkscape instead of Illustrator, Kdenlive instead of Premiere, as well as Blender instead of After Effects, all of which can give you the same result as products. from Adobe, you just have to learn how to use them.
Many people stop migrating because of the tools because they are already used to using them and the process becomes faster. But is this time you save worth the investment of licenses to use the service? Regardless of whether your answer was yes or no, there is no right or wrong here for any of the answers, as each one chooses the right time to learn something new.
In the video below, we discuss a bit about the influence of Adobe programs on migrating users to Linux. Adobe has been working with Google to turn Photoshop into a streaming system. In the future it may be that Photoshop gets to Linux through cloud computing, but probably the way it would work would be a little different from what we know today.
If you are still in doubt that this is possible, check out also the story Designer Nangil Rodrigues who has worked in several large companies and uses only software that runs on top of Linux to develop their activities.
Despite the popularity of Adobe programs, in fact, at a high level of production such as Cinema for example, they are not the "industry standard", giving way to software such as Nuke, DaVinci Resolve and Fusion, Avid MC, Maya, which are software, which mostly run on Linux.
Adobe software has already been used in such scenarios, but they are actually more popular with more modest filmmakers, youtubers, and agencies.
In this universe where Blender and Krita grow more and more, Kdenlive proves to be an interesting alternative alongside LightWorks and DaVinci Resolve, even in its free versions, allying itself with a market that always has to save as much as possible while maintaining or To increase performance, one cannot rule out the use of Linux, Hollywood is a great example of this.
Tell us if you think Adobe software is indispensable to you and why.
