Are Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Quarkxpress still in common and/or popular use?

Hi. A number of years ago, I was told that if you want to work in comics and/or animation, especially if you want to produce your own comics and/or animation, that you should get Adobe Flash, Illustrator, Photoshop and Quarkxpress.

I know Adobe is going to discontinue online support for Flash after the end of 2020. Sad

Are Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Quarkxpress still in common and/or popular use?

Please help- thank you.

@JGoldman10,
I'm just going to repost what I said to you seven months ago, when you asked this question on Yahoo Answers: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20190223013753AA5hBR8

Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are still widely used, as well as the newer program Maya.
Artists normally use Photoshop CC, as explained in that artist interview I linked to at the other question. You can find out about layouts and designs in the comic help books you said you have.
The recent film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse relied heavily on Photoshop and other Adobe programs.

@Rebelofnj,
What about Quarkxpress? Does anyone still use that?

What comic help books?

@JGoldman10,
Seriously speaking, do you purposely ignore what I wrote, or do you have trouble with your memory.

Because we had the same discussion in the link I provided:
From 7 months ago
"JGoldman10 - Do you know anyone who uses Quarkxpress?
Me - You have a odd habit of repeating yourself when it is not necessary. Quarkxpress is used to make websites. It has nothing to do with animation. I'm not sure how popular it is.
JGoldman10 - I was told you can use Quarkxpress when laying out and designing comics. I know it's not used for animation."

Plus I emailed at least 2 separate lists of writing help books, but you apparently ignored or forgotten them.

@Rebelofnj,
I don't remember everything I post online. That's why I usually archive stuff online.

I just found this old thread, which was created before you joined this site:

https://able2know.org/topic/178924-1 :

"Either Photoshop or Illustrator will be suitable to do your illustrations and add text to them but Illustrator is the better choice of the two as it is vector based, giving your artwork cleaner, sharper lines, as well as allowing it to be scaled without loss of quality.

QuarkXPress is page layout software, more suited to putting your comics book pages together, but not for creating the actual artwork.

If you are looking at getting several of the Adobe programs you'd be better off looking at one of the bundled packages now as this is a much cheaper way of buying them. In that case you may want to look at InDesign instead of Quark. InDesign is Adobe's layout software.

If you only want to purchase either Illustrator or Photoshop at this stage a cheaper alternative for the page layout software would be to look at Scribus - this is open source page layout software so it's a free download as opposed to Quark or InDesign.

The person gave me links to look at:

http://www.scribus.net/canvas/Scribus "

@JGoldman10,
I'm assuming you never followed that person's advice, as you are asking the same question again 8 years later.

@Rebelofnj,
I said here:

https://able2know.org/topic/531953-2#post-6902047

I tried downloading Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Quarkxpress as freeware but using the proper keys to access them was somewhat of a hassle.

If you don't remember everything you post, why do you expect everyone else to remember every bit of minutiae and nonsense you say?

Of course, you will have difficulty downloading and getting ILLEGAL stolen software to work. These programs in which you are referring to? They are not freeware. No one here is going to help you illegally pirate software.

@tsarstepan,
You only get in trouble IF you try to sell and distributed copied software without permission.

@JGoldman10,
If you are interested:

Until October 10, you can buy a bundle of art software for only $25 US.
https://www.humblebundle.com/software/painter-create-with-confidence

This includes Corel Painter® 2019, usually sells at $429 US.

It is not Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Quarkxpress (they're sold separately).

I'm not an artist, so I would not know. I have made that clear many times.
