Deke's Techniques Shares a Photoshop Workflow... For Version 1.0

Every year the photo community is besieged by April Fool’s Day jokes. This year's batch included a fake Canon 1D-W, a 15-foot tripod, and BorrowLenses adding a “rent an intern” option. This workflow serves as a tongue-in-cheek reminder of just how far our editing software has come since its release in February, 1990. Photoshop 1.0 was Mac-exclusive, only allowed one "undo", and even pre-dates the .jpg file.

Didn't get enough reminiscing? Below are some graphics showing the evolution of every photographer's favorite program over the years.

While some tools were added, the toolbar surprisingly hasn't changed much. I started with version 2.51, just before the advent of layers in version 3. http://tinyurl.com/4h24ej4

does anyone remember Aldus Digital Darkroom? I wonder if Adobe bought the rights to that and made photoshop.

Well, they bought Aldus, right? It was, I believe, their first acquisition on the road to monopoly...
