I’m sure at some point in our lives, we’ve tried Adobe Photoshop. I’ve started using Photoshop since 2001 but before that, I’ve used a few other easier graphic editing programs meant for a complete newbie and very kid-friendly. You know, the kind that came with their own set of cute graphics and cliparts that you can choose from. Or the ones with loads of templates for making banners, greeting cards, scrapbook covers, invitation cards and so on.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of Adobe Photoshop (Wow, has it been THAT long?), CreativeLive has released a video, inviting photoshop experts – Dave Cross, Jared Platt, Ben Willmore, Chris Orwig, Julieanne Kost, Aaron Nace, Tim Grey, Matt Kloskowski, and Jason Hoppe – who make a living out of teaching Photoshop to try the first version of the software – Adobe Photoshop 1.0!
Version 1.0 was released on Macintosh computers only. The software wasn’t released for Windows until version 2.5 in the year 1992. Then in 2003, they started rebranding the name with CS (Creative Suite).
Their reaction is hilarious. Ahh, the good ol’ simpler time back then. It’s interesting to see how much the software has progressed to be an advanced, complicated graphic editing software today. You can watch the video below.
HAPPY 25TH ANNIVERSARY, ADOBE PHOTOSHOP!
