This piece was written by the people who run the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Adobe has remained the industry standard in the design world, and for good reason. It's relatively easy to learn, easy to use, and is so completely comprehensive that the only limit to what you can design is your own imagination. (And anything related to Disney.

It's the difference between making a catchy Facebook meme for engaging in some online slacktivism and marching in a rally with a professionally designed poster.
