I have been using Photoshop for the past 11 years and it's one of the most, if not the most, versatile and powerful tool for any designer. The boundaries are endless from photo editing to UI and special effects. Over the years the Photoshop interface has evolved but they were able to keep the familiarity which makes the tool easy to adapt with every new version. Aurélien Salomon took a pass on his idea of the perfect Photoshop UI design that is worthy of a scope.
I will be honest with you, personally speaking I don't like the result, it lost the look & feel of Photoshop. It looks like a new tool, like an Apple tool and not a cross platform application. It might be because I am so used to Photoshop, but there's something beyond just being beautiful, what's the value the new design is adding, how would that play with other tools of the Adobe family. There are so many questions that said, the design is gorgeous, very well done and a great visual design exercise.
