Quark, PageStream, Viva and other applications also take PhotoShop as 
Standard; PitStop, too - 
colourspace indication for example works just with PhotoShop-images. Why not 
using PhotoShop (which runs in Version 6 and 7 with CrossOver under Linux, 
when it comes to images meant for printing. For RGB-Images Gimp is already 
ok, for CMYK perhaps some day).

Nevertheless there are biotopes for other applications as well, if there is 
good (preferentially printed) documentation, a vivid community and a good, 
usable interface. Scribus is already very usable for suitable projects.
