Photoshop 1.0 Was So Awful That Experts Can’t Use It

Photoshop 1.0 Was So Awful That Experts Can’t Use It

To celebrate the 25th birthday of Photoshop, CreativeLive decided to do what surely no-one has dared to, or been able to, in years; run Photoshop 1.0.

The testers include some of the foremost names in Photoshop training including Matt Kloskowski and Julianne Kost. See the results in the video below. They aren’t pretty!

I’ve no idea if they ran the software on old hardware or within a virtual machine, but I have a strange urge to try it myself that I might have to indulge at some point.

In the meantime, thank goodness for CC.
