25 Years of Adobe Photoshop

by Paul Strauss

If you can believe it, today marks the 25th anniversary of Adobe Photoshop. This photo retouching and enhancement application has been part of my daily routine for at least 20 of those years, so it’s definitely had its impact on my work and creative life. I think I’ve spent more time in Photoshop than just about any other application I’ve ever used – though Chrome (and Firefox before that) might come in a close second.

To celebrate the big anniversary, Adobe has shared a variety of historical images, including classic icons, box shots, splash screens and a timeline of the evolution of Photoshop. I particularly enjoyed looking at the evolution of the main Photoshop toolbar:

The timeline below is pretty fascinating too, though it seems to skip over versions 4 through 5.5 for some reason. I seem rop recall using 5.5 for quite some time. Here’s a high-resolution PDF of the timeline you can download too.

Congratulations, Adobe! I wonder where the next 25 years will take our images.
