The History of Photoshop

Who is the figure behind Adobe Photoshop? This question might cross our minds if we often use this application. Adobe Photoshop is an editing application developed by Thomas Knoll in 1987, a PhD student at the University of Michigan. Thomas Knoll began writing a program on his Macintosh Plus (Windows OS was not very popular at the time) to display grayscale images on a monochrome screen. This program was called Display. His brother, John Knoll, who worked at Industrial Light & Magic, was interested in what Thomas Knoll was doing and suggested turning the program into a full-fledged image editing program. In their collaboration, they divided the tasks. Thomas renamed the application to Adobe Photoshop and worked on distributing copies, while John demonstrated Photoshop to two companies, Adobe and Apple, located in Silicon Valley, California. In September 1988, Adobe showed interest and purchased the license for this application, subsequently distributing Adobe Photoshop.
