Facebook Cover of the Day: Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop is the market-leading image editing application made by Adobe Systems of San Jose, CA. Although originally designed for editing images for print, Photoshop is used today for a wide range of other amateur and professional purposes.
Adobe Photoshop was created in 1987. In 1988, John Knoll demos Photoshop to Adobe’s primary Art Director, Russell Brown, and Co founder, John Warnock. Today, Russell Brown is Adobe’s Senior Creative Director. In the same year, Thomas and John Knoll license the first version of Photoshop to Barneyscan who shipped about 200 copies of the program version 0.87 with the scanner.
In 1989, Knoll brothers give Adobe the rights to distribute Photoshop.
In 1990, Adobe Photoshop 1.0 ships for the Mac.
