That App Called Photoshop



It has been probably used to edit that magazine cover you held to recently or  the billboard you passed by on the road or  that default picture in your very own  Facebook account. That’s how uber useful Adobe Photoshop is!

Imagine this: If Leonardo Da Vinci had this killer app, he wouldn’t have to do his elaborate brush strokes or painstakingly draw intricate details of his sketches. In just a click or two, he could have quickly adjusted Mona Lisa’s brightness and hue. No need for paint mixtures. How about saving this artwork in formats like jpg, png, and psd- to name a few. Da Vinci could have easily added on the background using the custom shape tool, as well. With a little skew, rotate or crop, voila!

Thanks to one techie family responsible for the most popular and best selling photo editing software today.  Thomas Knoll, along with his brother John, has been greatly influenced by his father’s interest in photography and computers.

It was in 1987 when he found out that his Apple Plus could not display images in gray scale. His disappointment led to formulating a programming code he named Display. From being called as such and later on Image Pro, Photoshop came to be.

Without Photoshop, we’ll probably be solely dependent on darkrooms for developing images or just stuck with having your pictures edited at photo studios. Mere photo enhancement is now history because Photoshop has become more than convenient-  it’s about availability and ingenuity.
