Photoshop is 20 Years
Wow, Photoshop is 20 years. The software was released commercialy on a February 18 1980 (I wasn’t even born yet).
I have discovered Photoshop in 2001 with version 6.0. At that time, I was swearing by Ulead PhotoImpact 6, I really did not think it was as powerful as Photoshop. Plus, as a french speaker, I had an english version which did not help at all… But finally, after weeks of playing with it and understanding the “layers” system and the whole terminology of Photoshop, I knew this was real pro stuff. At that time I there was no synchronisation interaction between Adobe Products. As I used Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 for magazine layouts, I always had to do multiple save-as and importing… Later on, I got version 7.0 in french… which was nice… Photoshop is one of the greatest programs invented! Even before google!
