Happy birthday Photoshop: Hits 20 today

photoshop twenty logo Happy birthday Photoshop: Hits 20 today Today, February 19, heralds the twentieth birthday of probably the world’s most famous image and photo editing software.

Photoshop

A new “celebrate” tab on the Photoshop Facebook fan page lets users who love the software that much to change their profile picture to the 20th anniversary logo.

Adobe TV will air a special demonstration of Photoshop 1.0 on a rebuilt Mac.

Photoshop itself evolved out of a pixel imaging program called Display, created by Thomas Knoll in 1987. In 1988, Adobe licensed a version of the software that could manipulate digital images, and in 1990 the first version of Photoshop was born.

Of course, the best thing about having Photoshop is how many disasters it inspired. The more popular a piece of software becomes, the greater the number of unskilled people allowed to make an attempt at “professional” work.
