History & Evolution of Photoshop

 |  Art, Technology

I remember using Photoshop 1.0 and thinking what a fun and creative software tool…that really doesn’t have any practical purpose. Boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Photoshop has become so useful and popular that it has taken on verb-status, meaning if your company or product is really a noun but is being used as a verb, you have done something very right. Example: Here skin is so smooth in that picture it must have been photoshopped.

In any case, according to thid Photoshop history infographic this storied image editing program started on the Macintosh back in 1990 and never looked back, knocking out over competing software products that also offered image manipulation features. The new features added every year were always something to look forward too, but now you have to wonder, what else can Adobe cram into Photoshop. 2012 awaits this discovery.
