    Great video and fast skillful Photoshop worker.
    It does bring back painful memories of when Photoshop had no history, nor layers.
    [Or even live preview within dialogs: note the “Preview” buttons visible in the demo. –J.]
    But the low resolution look and the manageable menus are very nice.
    Please add to jumbo CS5 a “reverse to Photoshop 1 mode” option ;-)
    [Wouldn’t it be fun to use the Alchemy C-to-ActionScript converter to compile PS1 as a Flash panel for PS 12? :-) –J.]

    What a clever idea, it shows that even in the early days it wasn’t about the program, but it was about what the program let you do.

    Thank you very much for the publication and the nice comments. For a better visualization of the pixels, it is highly recommended to watch it at full screen!
    Another tribute to Photoshop, from Italy with love:
    Long life to the Queen and Photoshop Team!!!

    So when are you going to spill the beans on CS5?

    Wow. What an amazing tribute clip to share! I remember using Photoshop 10 years ago when I was in college and one of the themes I explored was the manipulated image. I still have those images today created from Photoshop on display at home. After 8 years of not even looking at the program I have decided to do a course that includes learning how to use all the Adobe programs. How far things have come in 20 years.

    Yeah, I forgot about the “Preview” button in the dialogue boxes.
    Man, that brings back memories.
    I remember being absolutely amazed when live preview was released. Can’t remember in which version that was.
