Hello, I just started Photoshop but found it extremely cumbersome and difficult.

I can use programs such as Blender, Unity, Unreal Engine at a professional level. Previously I was passing everything using paint.net. I realized that I could not create a professional work with paint.net, so I said to myself that it was time to learn Photoshop. It's been a week and I press the "space" button and the windows bar at the top left opens by mistake like "minimize"..  

I'm having these incredible problems; I don't know why the arc warp doesn't bend into 2 points but only one point. When I paste a selection, it creates a layer on itself, not inside the layer. I'm trying to paste a small graphic onto the character's clothing by bending it, and I haven't been able to use things like "warp" and "free transform" properly for 3 days. A complete fiasco...

Even though there are so many fans and users of the program, as a simple software developer, I found the program extremely unusable, clunky, and dysfunctional. Everything seems to be done in extremely indirect ways. 

You may be offended by what I say, but instead of actually being "simplified" the program has been complicated over and over again.

Using this program professionally requires serious effort, whereas the things you can actually do with the program are based on some algorithms and they are simple actually... The same elements could be in an other editing software like paint.net, and the interface of paint.net is very easy to use and you could still do the same things... But there is unnecessary confusion in Photoshop's interface, the elements are not categorized well at all.

Photoshop is optimized for speed, efficiency and advanced capabilities.

 

It is not optimized for simplicity, that would compromise the above.

 

You just need to learn to use it. I don't want to sound dismissive, but this is just how it is. If you want something simpler, there's Photoshop Elements.
