I prefer Photoshop. It is more feature-rich and allows you to be wildly creative. Powerpoint is capable of beautiful designs, too, but it would boil down to your own preference. Which software do you have, which software are you comfortable using and more importantly, which one is easier for you to use or learn.

Photoshop will definitely give you better quality than Powerpoint. Powerpoint is probably easier to use, but I would probably use Photoshop because you can do more with it. 

I used Adobe Illustrator for my invitations and monograms. They offer a free 30 day trial. I think I’m pretty good with computer stuff so I was able figure it out eventually, but it’s not easy. For simpler things like table numbers and menus, I used Microsoft Word.

Just an fyi.. Photohop should only be used for images, not for text, it’s a raster based program and your text will not be as sharp as a vector type program such as Indesign or illustrator. So for images=photoshop, for text indesign or illustator-just import your images into them.

I’ve only ever used Adobe Illustrator when drawing designs myself or Adobe InDesign for layout design items such as seating list etc. Most of the time it’s just Illustrator.
