Photoshop is 20

Fri February 19, 2010

Editor’s Note: We first published this post back on Feb 1.

Who doesn’t use Photoshop as an image editing software? It started in the Fall of 1987 when Thomas Knoll decided to write his own code to display greyscale images on a monochrome monitor as a hobby while working on his PhD research into image processing at the University of Michigan. Together with his brother, John, they collaborated to put out ‘Display’ and set off from the get go to make the best tool possible. Thomas was the programmer and skeptical when thinking at the amount of work he needed to invest to put out a viable commercial product; John was the naive “We are going to take over the world” ever-optimistic partner every startup needs. They were unsure at first what use it could serve and pitched it as a file translation utility.
