Is Stack Overflow a good place to ask Photoshop questions, or is there another site in the Stack Exchange family for those questions?

    Is it about how to use options in Photoshop or is it more trouble shooting? If it's the latter then Super User is definitely the place. If it's the former then Super User is probably OK, but you might get a better response on Photoshop forums. – ChrisF Mar 11 '10 at 20:55

    @ChrisF: would have been fine as answer imo – ChristopheD Mar 11 '10 at 22:50

Super User may be your best bet, but it depends a lot on what you're doing with Photoshop. I know that Stack Overflow and Server Fault are definitely not appropriate.

There are also graphic design (and photography) sites on Stack Exchange which may be a good fit.

Try Graphic Design on Stack Exchange.

    Or Photography if you're doing photo post-processing. – ale May 23 '13 at 13:04

If your question involves programming or automation, then it may be a good candidate for Stack Overflow. Have a look at the tagged questions for examples of what is appropriate.

After looking at those questions, if your question doesn't seem to fit in with them, then Super User would be the best place to ask your question.

  • Thank you for the list -- I'd say a good half of the ones there which are still open ought to be closed, most (if not all) of those migrated. Good way to help me use up my remaining close votes for the day. :) – John Rudy Mar 11 '10 at 21:59

Ask yourself: Is my question related to programming in any point?

If the answer is yes, then a good formulated question that fits the FAQ guidelines has its place on Stack Overflow.

I think it's possible to imagine a few automation questions about photoshop related to programming. But don't ask about non-programming stuff.

Photoshop itself is not programming.

You could also try the Photography site on Stack Exchange. If the questions are about processing photos, that is.

Otherwise, Super User is the place to go.

    What makes this answer different than this one? You just repeat why he said there three years ago. – Shadow Wizard May 23 '13 at 6:54
