In honor of Photoshop’s 20th Anniversary (this Thursday, Feb. 18th), the gang here at NAPP (the National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals) put together a Photoshop Trivia Quiz on Photoshop’s history, what features were added when, and stuff like that.

The quiz is just for fun, of course, but it’s harder than you might think (I did “OK” on it, meaning I passed, but I didn’t do well enough to brag about my score).

If you’ve got a couple of minutes, click this link to take the quiz and see how you do.

(NOTE: if you do take the quiz and get a great score—don’t post a comment with your score. It’ll only make me feel even worse). ;-)

  1. I only got 14 correct, but I can blame it on my young age and that I only have been using Photoshop actively since CS3! Very fun though and see you at the 20th Anniversary! By the way, are we allowed to bring a camera for personal remembrance?

    – Roar

  2. I only got 14 correct, but I blame it on my old age and CRS.

  3. Well, as a Newby, I managed to get 16 correct all because I joined NAPP and paid attention to Great ones! :-) That was a lot of fun! Great job guys!!


  4. I got 18 correct, thought that last one was a trick question or i would have gotten 19

  5. I got 17. Not too bad for a newbie I guess. :)


  6. I got 14…which I’m pretty happy with. If I can get as many as Ken Toney, I must be good :-)

  7. I got 20 – but 2 were educated guesses (I didn’t know for sure…)

  8. WOW!!! I aced this test the second time I took it.

  9. Heh!

    I got a 34!!!


    Um, minus 4… Maybe 10… 12… Uh, Well – ok, it was a score of 18. I know photoshop, but not in a creepy sorta’ way. ;-)

  10. Somehow I got 19 and I’ve never owned a full version of Photoshop, but I do read good sources of info like this blog and articles by Jeff Schewe & John Nack etc.

    So it would appear that something peculated into the dark recesses of my ‘mind’ :-)

  11. I got 24 :) not bad. More quizs please.

  12. My first version was 7 back when I was a freshman in high school. I got 18.

  13. You got great honest points here. I done a search on the issue and learnt most peoples will agree with your blog.

  14. i just wanna thank you for sharing your information and your site or blog this is simple but nice article I’ve ever seen i like it i learn something today…
