Just wondering why Photoshop 2020 is the oddball with a different app icon/shape design than the rest of the 2020 apps?Screen Shot 2019-11-04 at 2.35.32 PM.png

Hi There,

The rounded corners actually have a meaning- they mean the app works across multiple devices and the cloud.

Ah, that makes sense. Thank for getting back to me! And thanks for answering my curiosity of UI disuniformity.

Although I can appreciate the logic in your response, I must agree with Kleajmp and others who find it inconsistent with the other CC apps. Why give it the attributes of other products with rudimentary functionality compared to other more robust apps in the suite as well as being inconsistent from a design perspective?

 

Also, while were on the subject, why apply a function (sans shift to scale) feature in Photoshop as in other CC design apps? No offense, but seems illogical.

I totally agree, this suite should be designed as an entity. I would preffer all the Apps with the same icon design, and that some functions were cross-platform. It's really anoying when you're going from PS y AI and the scale function is different. This is supposed to be an integraded suite, innit?

thats SO annoying, PLEASE make the icons consistent! you are making products for designers, so do your job and make your product look consistent. this icon really drives me nuts. eighter make them all the same in general or per device. but NEVER EVER mix them!! its not even the rounded corners, even the font is too bright!!!

If you copy the old icon in finder you can replace the new one. That is what I have done 🙂

You will need to remove from dock then put it back again.

no it doesn't, it's totally stupid. It's a cheap marketting trick to make people aware of a tabled photoshop version, where no one is waiting for. why should anyone downgrade to software that can do less?

That's exactly what I did directly after installing the new CC before I even read it was annoying so many other designers. For me the rounded corner apps are the "simple" apps like Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements, they are good for a certain croud, but don't bring any new functionality to me. I'm sorry.

These programs are designed for DESIGNERS. I personally think it's ridiculous to make the shape different from the other apps. Consistency is one of the most basic yet most important principles in design yet the update has foolishly ignored this.
