Happy birthday, Photoshop!


Today is Photoshop’s 30th birthday! For 10,950 days, artists, designers, photographers and many others have inspired the world with their imaginations using the practical magic of Photoshop.

We honor our long-standing collaboration of artists and engineers, where working together and with your feedback and inspiration we have built a tool that enables you to make the world a more beautiful place.

In celebration of this birthday, today we also release many great new features in both versions of Photoshop – on the desktop and on the iPad. Happy birthday, Photoshop! We will keep the magic rolling.

Love it or hate it (there are arguments for both), there’s no denying Photoshop is one of the most powerful pieces of software many of us will ever use. But it’s also one of the most complicated and dense. I’ve been using Photoshop since v1 (Adobe used to give it away for free when you bought a scanner) and, while I’ve never been an expert at it, I’m always amazed by its possibilities.
