Hope you all have an awesome weekend, and we’ll see ya back here on Monday (I have a cool post for Monday about me rethinking some cool technology). :)



P.S. One more thing: Our third episode of “The Lightroom Show” went live today (we release them every Friday), and we packed some awesome Lightroom tips and techniques in a very short package. Here’s the link if you get a sec. 

It’s hard to believe, but Photoshop is 25-years-old! Yesterday was its official birthday, and yesterday in honor of, and to celebrate, “The Photoshop Guys” did a special broadcast about Photoshop, and we shared some tips and techniques, and you can watch it right above.

You’re Invited!
25 years is a pretty amazing milestone, so to continue the celebration we’re hosting a free Webcast where we’re going to look through the years at the different versions of Photoshop, and we’re going to share our favorite features introduced in each version by sharing our favorite Photoshop tips for each feature (and I’m hoping that last sentence made any sense whatsoever). In short â” wanna come to a free live webcast packed with Photoshop tips? Well, you’re invited.

When you sign up for the free Webcast, you also get a link to download a PDF of our 25-year-tribute feature from Photoshop User magazine written by Adobe’s own Bryan O’Neil Hughes. Here’s the link to sign up.

One more thing!
Adobe’s Worldwide Evangelist, Terry White, did a really cool tribute for Photoshop’s birthday yesterday; he did an entire demo of Photoshop 1.0. You will be amazed at how many things were in that initial release that we still use day in/day out today. I’ve embedded his demo below.

I hope you’ll join me in wishing Photoshop, the coolest program ever made, a big “Happy Birthday!” :)

Hope you all have a great weekend (try to stay warm. If it was 28° down here last night in Tampa, I can’t imagine how cold it must be up north. Brrrrrrrr!).

All my best,


Today, February 19, 2015, Adobe is celebrating it's 25th Anniversary for Photoshop!

Originally an idea by Thomas Knoll, "Display," a pixel imaging program from the late 1980s was purchased by Adobe and the rest is history. Read more about how Photoshop got started here.

And here's a special video from the Adobe YouTube channel:

"To celebrate the tool that has helped shape creativity, artists from all over the world contributed their most amazing dreamsâ”and their working files with layers."

Today at 2:00pm ET, we will be airing a special episode of Photoshop User TV with Scott, RC, Corey, and Pete sharing their fun stories and experiences with Adobe Photoshop over the years. See you there!
