Happy Birthday Photoshop, 20 years of Photoshop shenanigans

Twenty years ago today, one of the most beloved programs of all time was created, Photoshop.  Photoshop is a photo manipulation program, loaded with features to create or modify any image to make a work-of-art.  

Photoshop was created in 1987 by Thomas Knoll, a Student at the University of Michigan, and later his brother John Knoll, when it was named Display and ImagePro. In September 1988, John Knoll presented a demo of Photoshop to Adobe's internal creative team, which was well received.  As a result, a licensing agreement was struck. In February 1990, after 10 months of development, Photoshop 1.0 was released to the public.

Now almost 12 versions later and 20 years of history, Adobe celebrates its popular product's 20th Birthday. Photoshop has become the standard for image manipulation and has spurred a cultural phenomenon alongside it. Photoshop has created a sub-culture of photoshopped images, which contain one or more fatal flaws. This begun the phrase "That looks Photoshopped" and "shopped" meaning something looks too good to be true.  Happy Birthday to Photoshop from everyone at Neowin.net.
