If photoshop is dumb so is the gimp. They are exactly the same in functionality to deliver final product.
It's not about what software is better, is about how are you using it.
If you have no knowledge about image painting/editing you will never be able to do good stuff.
And that's true for 2d, 3d, audio whatever.
Learn, use, deliver. If you don't learn you will not be able to use any program and you will fail with delivery.

It's easy saying C2 is shit because it doesn't do what you wanted it to do, but did you even try?
I'm using CC and C2 for over 5 years now and I'm still learning new thing every single day.
And you what, spend a month and would like to develop AAA games already?

Seriously I'm watching a lot of regression in current society, And that's painful.

I guess I will be the one to tell you not to only want the "big" money.
If thats why you are doing this, the only reason why. There is NO EASY WAY. Some ways are EASIER. But in the end you need a ton of time, work, and perseverance.

I am just going to tell you to fucus on the "small money" have many games with little income and they all add up.
Only trying to get that one BIG AWESOME ANGRY BIRD type game. Only setting sights on a big success. This makes all the little success and achievments you make invisible. Being blind to that will only discourage you and keep you from a big success.

yes i know. make very little games, which are fast to develop and put them into the stores till one app arrives the top 10.

I can not write good in english, have i understand you correctly?

What is easy for me and what is easy for you could be very different.

My advice:
Try making a very simple game. For ideas look back at old arcade games.
There honestly isn't an easy way to do things. Everything comes down to personal taste.

When I first tried construct I hated it. I viewed it as useless because I couldn't code and felt restricted. Certain concepts clashed with what I learned and know about programming in Java and c#.

But I kept using construct and now I love it. I had some walls to climb and still do. But I feel pretty comfortable with using construct and generally prefer it over alternatives.

Construct also has a great community. People are actually helpful and mature about things. That alone is worth it. I couldn't stand the vast amount of "trolls" in the gamemaker forums.

The lesson to be learned here:
Construct2 can make some really great games. But it can't do it on its own. You will have to try it out for probably a few good months of trial and error before you start getting awesome results.

Read the manual. It wasn't until I read the manual that I actually saw construct as being useful. It helps a ton and is a fun read.

Open and look at the tutorials/ templates!
I wish I did this sooner as well. Tons to learn here.

Goodluck!

You need to have patience with it's development as well . It is still early , I am sure that the best is yet to come and deployment to platforms will continue to improve .
What I know would fill a Book , what I don't know would fill a Library

"i want only the "Big" money."

All of the money and none of the effort, right?

Here's a quote for you to consider:
“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”

It's a shame that you aren't willing to give Construct 2 a chance, because you're really missing out on a quality product. What is it that you don't like about the editor?
