Adobe Photoshop is 25 years old! Born on Feb 19, 1990 when version 1 first shipped. I first started using Photoshop during the early 1990’s, so I must have been using version 1 or 2. I certainly remember the early black and white and then red bordered eye icon! I first started using it on a Mac Classic.
I love Adobe Photoshop, and recently I’ve started experimenting with using it to create some new surreal and abstract artwork. I’m learning, and only just scratching the surface with this application – there’s always so much more you can do with it.
Dare I say it, but the possibilities are almost limitless when you couple Photoshop with creativity. It’s wonderful to see all the different styles, photography, images and creations that have been produced using Photoshop. I plan to continue to showcase some of these as part of my blog for inspiration and encouragement.
Adobe has produced a video to celebrate Photoshop’s birthday:
Dreams from the Digital Darkroom — 25 Years of Photoshop – An interview with Thomas Knoll, one of the co-creators of Photoshop
Photoshop – the first demo, recreated!
…with John Knoll, one of the creators of Adobe Photoshop.
