What is Photoshop to you?

Over the past 21 years, Photoshop has meant many different things to many different people. Whether it is used to tell a story, put ideas into motion, imagine something new, visualize science or any of its other many uses – we are proud that Photoshop has touched popular culture, business and artistry around the world. On Photoshop.com, we’ve recently been thinking about what Photoshop is and what it means to our customers and their lives.

Last year around this time, we asked you what Photoshop means to you and the response was impressive and heartening to the team. As we celebrate 2 million Fans on Facebook, we’d like to ask, “what is Photoshop to you?” How would you define its mission? What is its purpose in your life?  How do you use it?

As a special treat, we’re giving away three copies of Photoshop CS5 and one iPad to random individuals who tell us in the comments below what Photoshop is to them. We’ll announce the winners tomorrow in the comments section on the blog.

Thanks for celebrating with us this week and the team looks forward to hearing your thoughts.

Best,
Maria Yap
Product Management Director, Digital Imaging

      I love Photoshop and have used it since I was introduced to it in 1995. Every computer I’ve had since then has had a ton of Photoshop documents on them. Ideas from artwork used commercially to inspired images for self expression have been made possible thanks to this wonderful software. You’ve come a long way and I look forward to more!

    • By Jose A De Leon - 8:20 PM on April 21, 2011  

      For me, Photoshop means endless possibilities. As a student and artist, the first time I was introduced to Photoshop and the things you can accomplish was an overwhelming positive experience. I try to absorb every tutorial like a sponge to water. You guys at Adobe are so smart you can probably design a Black-hole or a Parallel Universe! Keep up the awesome work. It has been a wonderful experience for me and a sweet ride.

    “Smash the status quo?” Hardly. There is little that is more status quo than any Adobe product.

    That said, I use you because there is no other comparable option. Others have tried and failed. They are not the industry standard and you are.

    If there were to be a good – but HONEST – slogan for this product, it would be:

    Photoshop. The necessary evil.

    Photoshop to me is the gift that keeps on giving. When I do all the wonderful things I can do in Photoshop and see the smile on the persons face that I am giving them something I have created its always priceless to me. I have had made some very close friends and family very happy with what I have done with their photos. I must say it’s the best on the market for editing!

  • By Kok Kee Yap - 12:05 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I guess you’ll have to feel it. You can’t explain what is the composite of creativity and magic. Everything is visually possible.

  • By Dustin - 12:05 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is how we edit and manipulate our digital photos. The purpose of Photoshop is to give us the tools necessary to represent our ideas. I use Photoshop to do everything digital: composite work, retouching, web design, print work and everything in between. I love Photoshop.

    Photoshop is like a best friend to me: It helped me to design our t-shirts for school while teaching a bloody photoshop noob to work with CS4.
    Photoshop is also a friend who helps me to impress girls with my skills and their polisched pictures.
    Photoshop is fun to play with and the only legal way to “manipulate”
    I simply cannot think of any computing without Photoshop… seriously, i can´t even imagine (though i have a wild imagination for sure sometimes ;P)

    Its the right hand to my Flash development. Its vital to all graphic content production and adjustment that goes into my E-Learning modules.

  • By Michele Walworth - 12:06 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the freedom to FLY with my mind’s eye. It reminds me of the Disney Imagineers saying “If you can dream it,we can build it”. With Photoshop there isn’t anything you can’t picture in your mind, that you can’t ‘build’. Photoshop brings vision to marketing, illustration, design, photography, etc. I use it for logos, web design, photos, and any other graphic design projects having to do with my photography business.

  • By HEIKE - 12:06 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is a Lifesaver!
    I know I can swim but Photoshop will make me throw down the ancor so that I’ll stop and look at the picture in front of me.
    In other words: I know I can make good photographs but Photoshop will make me stop and make GREAT images out of them.

    Photoshop lets me re-create the world in ways never before imagined. It frees me, opens my mind and allows me to enter a world of the unknown. Exploring life and its beauty is just ONE of the many ways I take advantage of all it has to offer! I am so very grateful to Photoshop for allowing such a possibility.

  • By Chester Sellars - 12:06 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is a chance to explore my photographs, and bring my vision to life. It let’s me combine my digital art with my photographs in a dual-medium package, and I love it. Happy 2 million mark, PS.

  • By Holly - 12:06 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is not only an art tool for me but also a window to my world in many ways. I have been disabled due to physical trauma for many years now and hang on to my CS3 suite, see its been a lifeline for me. I used to be able to climb and do murals for local businesses and physically got to the point it is a challenge just to navigate around home. My family got the art program along with a wacom tablet for me and it opened up a completely new outlet for creativity for me. Im able to not only learn new ways to create all of those vivid images that my muse waves in front of my mind but also able to help out some of those same business partners with art usable on their web sites and flyers, even videos for some. What is it’s purpose in my life? Photoshop is my new paintbrush. Like a magic wand I can weild and share my dreams with.

    Photoshop is my right arm when it comes to creativity. Its mission is to make my ideas come to life. Its purpose is to make me work faster and more efficient and with more possibilities. I use it on a daily bases since I’m an Art director at an advertising agency and also a book cover designer and freelance graphic designer. With PS I can basically put my thoughts into images that never existed before.

  • By Barb Gretter - 12:08 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the most fun I’ve ever had on a computer! I use to be in awe of anyone who did any kind of photo editing or graphic design. Because a) I have my own business and b) I love taking photos, I decided to try your free trial of Photoshop Elements and discovered I loved it. A year later I tried the free trial of Photoshop CS4 and never looked back! Now I have CS4 on one computer and CS5 on another. I learn something new everyday!

    Photoshop to me is much more than a piece of software. To me it is a tool for self expression, and creativity, that touches many people daily. Nothing is more rewarding to me, when people are amazed of what I am able to do. Photoshop is creativity with endless possibilities.

    Photoshop is Life how I see it!!!

  • By Vince - 12:10 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop to me is simply just an awesome tool, I wish I had as a kid.
    I’m 27 now and it’s great to help bring out your imagination.
    I also love to use it when simply editing pics, in terms of color and brightness, and so on. The possibilities are endless.
    I know a lot of people get the different plugins, but the stock tools work just fine.
    I will say it may not be too user friendly at 1st, but that’s ok. It’s fun to do your research and learn how to use it. I picked it up pretty quickly by just fooling around with the tools and all the other features.
    I’m still one CS3, but I still do what I have to do with it.
    Thank you adobe for your beautiful creation and I hope to see more from this team in the near future 😀

    Photoshop is many things to many people. Most importantly, however, Photoshop is about creativity and innovation. It has allowed my to be creative in ways I never thought I could be. Photoshop is creativity for the digital generation. It gives me the freedom for creativity I CRAVE. It can evolve and grow with the internet culture fueled by the artist of our age. Personally, I am all about futurism, and Photoshop, as well as other Adobe products, give me exactly what I asked for, and many things I didn’t even know I WANTED. I love that it allow its users the ability to create their OWN tools for their digital art needs, and the internet allows us to share these tools with the world. Photoshop promotes global sharing of creativity, how DIPLOMATIC of you! In closing, Photoshop is creativity for the 23rd century, and I’m glad I’m a part of it. Photoshop, FOR the future.

  • By Jason Klenke - 12:11 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I am a new photographer and very new to photoshop. Photoshop has opened up a whole new world to me. I am going through a divorce, currently overseas in Bahrain and was struggling to make it through each day. Now I have a whole new outlook on my photography, my abilities and on life in general and it is all due to Photoshop! Thank you!!!

  • By Raimondas Verkis - 12:11 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop allows me to express my self, it gives me the feeling that I’m unloading all my memories and thoughts of the day into one single abstract form.

    Photoshop, to me, is like a paint brush, or a pencil, or a pastel, or a piece of charcoal and a canvas, all in one. It’s a way for me to express myself, my creativity and my artisitic visions.

  • By kate booth concept - 12:12 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is my darkroom, my paints, my studio, my sketchpad. Photoshop is a way for me to both conceptualize dreams and ideas, as well as a tool to make a living. Photoshop was literally the beginning of my fascination with computers, and with each new version, allows me to do more than I ever thought a software could in terms of enabling visual expression. PS allows me to “Imagine More” on a daily basis. -Thank you adobe dev team!- <3

  • By Nathan O'Brien - 12:12 PM on April 20, 2011  

    (first thing, website needs updating massively)

    Photoshop for me is something i don’t like to sit and read up on. I like to find new things out and then read how to actually use it properly. For me its a way to express myself and just have fun, makes me feel like i can make something change from good to amazing or from amazing to out of this world. Or just simply ruin a photo BUT surely thats the fun of photoshop. Somethings work, some don’t. I love it. Its my second brain.

    To me Photoshop is a new beginning. As I am a 40 yr old mother and wife, since I was 16 yrs old, who is teaching herself photography and photoshop CS5, I hope to become a wonderful Photographer one day as it is my passion. Not being able to afford to go to school for photography, I am determined to teach myself with books and online video’s from Linda.com and other online sources. I have been a Photoshop Elements user for about 5 years and was sent a very special offer in the mail one day to purchase CS5 for a considerably lower price than normal for being an Elements user. I could not believe it! And my wonderful supportive husband let me purchase it when we really did not have the money to do so. But I promised to learn it and use it to further enhance my love of photography and someday make his money back! So I’m couting on you Photoshop, to help me do great things and take me places I would have never gone otherwise!
    God Bless!

    Once, photoshop was an abstract idea. I heard people ‘photoshopping’ and saw funny pictures. I learned to photoshop so that I could make silly pictures of my friends. Then I kept going. Quickly I found it helped me with my work, and got me more and more into design. Now I use photoshop for a lot of my design work, but I still haven’t lost that sense of fun and curiosity. I still try to enjoy my work, and humour is still a big part of it.

    I take my work seriously, but not myself. Photoshop reminds me not to lose that sense of fun and curiosity.

    Its fairly simple, but that’s what photoshop is to me!

  • By Sash - 12:14 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is for me the best way to express my imagination in every way i want and to make the best out of the things i create, for example photographies. Through Ptoshop and it’s uses i can even compare my creativity to that of people far away. Plus, it shows me, how imagination must not be supressed. And it lets me change the world to my own will, in a way that harms noone and surprises many.

    I think the mission of Photoshop should be to enable artists and creators alike to take the images in their heads and set them down into a form that astounds them. Photoshop for me is a handy tool in my creative thinking and problem solving arsenal when it comes to designing characters and worlds for my characters to inhabit, or laying out a comic book page.

It has helped me create the simplest yet most complex photos I have ever produced. Pixel art had been created. I’ve been able to compete in art shows because of Photoshop. Photoshop to me is a program that nurtures my creative skill and helps me bring my dreams and talents to life. <3

  • By Scott Smith - 12:16 PM on April 20, 2011

    For me I have only used the trial version of photoshop elements. But I was completely blown away with it. How I could take my pictures and make them that much better. How I could create something even more beautiful. When I go out and take pictures its like Im in my own world. And photography has taught me to look beyond what you first see, its like seeing a whole other world. Its taught me to appreciate our world even more whether is an expression on someones face, seeing an object in a whole new way, or realizing the amazing colors there are everywhere. It calms me and makes me feel at peace. When I used the photoshop it was like adding even more to that world. Just amazing!

Photoshop has created a whole new world of art design that I am sure both amateurs and professionals alike could not do without. Congrats on the milestone!

  • By Chad - 12:25 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the most important tool in my arsenal as a designer. It’s how I create branding for my clients, and make their visions a reality. I can’t imagine a day going by without using Photoshop. I wouldn’t be the designer I am without Photoshop. I can’t draw with a pencil and paper, but you put me in front of photoshop for a few hours and I’ll make something so beautiful that it will bring a tear to your eye.

  • By Matt Lindley - 12:26 PM on April 20, 2011  

    PS is a major component in my life. I use it for work and play. It helps me build websites, magazine ads, logos, and more for my clients. In my free time, I use it (and AI) to paint, which is *so* much less expensive than wet media. On my iPhone and iPad, it is a part of my photography and mobile process. I’m always eagerly awaiting the next release and can’t wait to see the new iPad apps! Keep up the great work!

    A miracle! I can take my average photos and make them sensational!

  • By Anna - 12:26 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the balance I need in my life to keep me whole, and centered. It’s my separation from mother, or wife, or daughter, a way to connect to my artistic roots and tap into the force that exists within us all for creation and beauty. Photoshop is, for me, sanity in a time of chaos, and an old friend who understands my need to bring forth beauty.

  • By Grant Friedman - 12:26 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I think Photoshop means something different to all its users. If you ask a Photographer what it means to them, they will tell you that it allows them to make their subjects or art look better. A web designer will tell you that it allows them to create stunning web interfaces. As the editor of the largest Photoshop site in the world, I get to see it from lots of perspectives. Photoshop can be whatever you need it to be. An app to create icons, websites, posters, photo manipulations, typography, basically anything a designer could ever need.

    Photoshop to me is seeing beyond what is seen with my eyes or the len of a camera…If I am not at work or sleeping, you will find me at my PC working on a project or watching tutorials on how I can approve and take each and every image to a level that takes your breathe away!

  • By Maciej Klodas - 12:26 PM on April 20, 2011  

    It is a staff in sorcerer’s hand or a box of crayons for a little man, it’s like autumn for leaves and ocean for fish. It’s an escape from quite often gray and dull world. It’s like my imagination only better – it gives me a possibility to show all those thoughts to the world.

    What is Photoshop to me? Photoshop is the antenna connecting the creativity and imagination flowing through my veins. Photoshop, allows me not only to draw create and innovate that which festers within all of our minds but edit the memories, pictures and models already created. To me Photoshop is more than a peice of software it’s a hobby a job a canvas waiting to be used. Photoshop to me is a teacher showing me how brilliant life really can be. Guiding myself and all of it’s 2 million plus fans for over two decades and continuing to do so. Photoshop is about discovery and the ability to produce a vision depicting any and all emotions.Photoshop to me is Art, Creativity, Imagination, creation.

  • By W Blaine Pennington - 12:30 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop allows me to digitally do everything I could do as a master printer in the wet photographic darkroom, including complex masking, bleaching, retouch and airbrush and so much more… but the real benefit is to finally be able to control every aspect of the image to fulfill an artistic vision or to capture a completely accurate reality, and to do it non-destructively, share it easily, and to retain archival originals and variations. It is indispensable for my work and my clients.

  • By Scott Valentine - 12:30 PM on April 20, 2011  

    There are a lot of excellent responses, but my favorite so far is the first one “A daily reminder that I can do anything” (Michael).

  • By Dustin Shannon - 12:32 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is simply this…. Magic.
    It brings the magic not only to photos and graphics in general, but allows for the enhancement of all other graphic, web, and video programs, especially in the world of 3D animation. Without Photoshop, there would simply be no way for me to be a 3D artist because there would be no way to create, modify, and mend graphics and images to texture 3D objects, scenes, and characters in Maya. MAGIC!!!

    Photoshop software is a wonderful tool to have. It can change a nothing picture into something spectacular. It is the difference between night and day, it is a wonderful way to express yourself artistically, it is the topping on a dessert, it is a way to let your imagination go wild, it is something that I use daily to release tension, it is something that my husband and I enjoy together, it is used to tweak, munipulate, clone, brush, enhance,and color, it is a palate and so much more, it is something that every photographer should have and use, there is always something new about it, a new way to mask or use channels, it is an adventure everytime we open it up to do a picture. We love it!!

    It owe it to photoshop! I had no graphic design experience when I starting working in a digital department. In my free time, I started teaching myself photoshop.

    What photoshop means to me? Good question.
    Photoshop is what makes me happy (if I creat a new layout) or what makes me angry (if something won’t work as I want it to). It is a way to express myself through graphics like layouts, icons, etc. or editing photos. I can also show my different feelings in my designs and photoshop is an amazing way to be creative.
    That’s what photoshop means to me: A way to express myself =)

    It’s the left part of my brain. Everything I see and use is based around the creative suite; advertisements, magazines, posters and even textbooks rely on programs like inDesign and Illustrator. In school, Photoshop is my main creative outlet; all of my photos go through there for editing, and at home Lightroom is the software of choice. Adobe really does influence my world daily, and photoshop is the one piece of software that has changed who I am. It’s something that I can say I know, and feel good about knowing.

  • By shane grogg - 12:40 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is a huge step forward in my evolution as an artist and designer. After resisting it for years and insisting on doing all my work by hand-with a pencil or a brush, I’ve now embraced it as my number one tool. Being able to instantly visualize ideas, make changes and corrections and create all new effects, layouts and styles has taken my work to a new level. Every project is a learning experience that I then apply to my next , and so on and so on. It’s like the world’s most satisfying video game I have ever played. I wish I had 10 more hours a day to sit in front of my computer and create with and learn more about this remarkable program.

  • By Jerron Smith - 12:40 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I studied photography as a part of my undergraduate degree in Fine Arts but I was never a great photographer. I also studied painting at the same time, but once again was never the greatest. At the time they seemed lacking, I believe now that both mediums were limited (at least in my point of view) because they are based on the very real and rigid physical system. And a true mixed or multi-media experience is difficult, perhaps impossible to crate with them because of that.
    And then there is Photoshop. What is Photoshop to me? It means that I can use and simulate photography and yet not be bound by the limitations of physical light. It means that I can paint and draw without being constrained by the rules that govern how pigments and medium react to my canvas or how graphite is affected by paper. It means that I get to choose, I have a tool that I can use to work within those physical limitations to create a work that mimics reality or if I prefer, I can go beyond them, to create artwork that could never possibly exist in a real world governed by physical laws.
    It’s my choice and that is what Photoshop is to me; It is my tool, my ability to choose to make a decision about my art. And that ability to choose is the most personal power that anyone can have.

    With Photoshop, the possibilities are endless. It removes the limits of traditional media to allow one’s creativity to grow.

  • By Chuck Arnold - 12:41 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the tool box and the toy box; the blank slate or the uncarved block of stone as well as the tools to free the creative mind to devise and achieve what was only found within the heart and spirit, and allow the artist to share their dreams, nightmares, aspirations, emotions and visions.

    From photography’s subtle adjustments to make a good photo into a great photo and the great into the extraordiary, it has evolved into the artists canvas and pallet; when things too fantastic and hyperrealistic need to be expressed, Photoshop is the way it can be achieved. It is the quintessential device for creative expression, and it just keeps getting better.

    Photoshop is to me “my personal shop for being creative and having special ideas”. Make people smile and getting a lot of input. It’s my way to show how I am, what I am and why I am what I am. It’s a “shop” you can erase everything and try out everything. You can get very special within this “shop” and learn more and more each day.
    Long story short: Photoshop – it’s just everything.

    Photoshop is like my morning coffee, photography is great, waking up is great but being able to sip the morning coffee and being able to add the edge to my photos with the help of photoshop is something I cannot do without. It is the magical darkroom where I am allowed to create the magic that makes people smile and say: “Wow thank you, is that really me/us!” I think it is a luxurious essential item that I have to have even if it means not having something else like an Ipad but it is a tool I believe I cannot do without. Life as a photographer without photoshop would be like life without vibrant colour or waking up and not having that first sip of coffee to welcome the new day. I simply love Photoshop!

  • By Kathleen - 12:44 PM on April 20, 2011  

    PhotoShop gives me the ability to offer my clients a great product. Currently working with an older version of PS, even that version is a powerful tool. Every day I learn more and I find it exciting to delve further into what I can do with PS. Would love to win, but am still happy using what I’ve got. Thanks folks at PhotoShop!

    It’s my second nature, it’s a piece of my Brain, it’s simply Myself… As a Graphic Designer|Artist for almost 12 years I’m proud to confess that Photoshop and all Other Adobe Products are the Revolutionary Invention of the 20th\21th Century, without it, it’s stone age again, thank you ADOBE…

  • By Jens Eben - 12:45 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop itself doesn’t mean anything
    It’s just a software program.
    But the thing it make it magical
    it’s his abilities
    and no matter what
    photoshop will be my best mate

    thx for listening 😉

  • By Jennifer Liggit - 12:45 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I would have to say what Photoshop Elements is to me, it allows for much more creativity than your average photo editing software which I love. I use it for all the personal Family shots I take and the Sports Action shots I take of my husband Drag Racing. I have recently started really getting into photography and shooting more portraits for friends & family and am absoltely loving it. What a great addition to my tools would CS5 be! There is quite the competition out there in photography and I absolutely believe Photoshop by far allows for superior expression of creativity and vision of true art.

  • By Derek - 12:45 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is my go-to program for anything dealing with web, print or video graphics. I would say it’s mission is to empower creativity and make the process from idea to finished product as simple and quick as possible.

    Wow…photoshop to me is….my Superhero Sidekick! I could not put out stunning, timeless products with out the help of Photoshop!

    Ive never imagined what photoshop gave to me, before i thought that the creative part of me never existed, i dont have anything to do with visual arts, but a friend introduce me to this weekly classes about basic photoshop, and it opens a whole new world to me, a world i thought never existed… now im still in the learning process but everytime i made something from photoshop, i feel like i made something memorable more meaningful, and especially if someone appreciate my work… i feel like i’m born again…

  • By Lucas Rolff - 12:50 PM on April 20, 2011  

    What Photoshop is to me:

    Photoshop is that software I would use for my web-design business, but as I’m student I don’t have enough moneys to buy it, and it’s against the ToU to use the student version for business.

    So Photoshop is the software that would be able to do my work better, instead of using Pixelmator, it’s great, supports psd files, but I need all the nice stuff that is in Photoshop!

    Photoshop is …
    // creation.
    // manipulation.
    // touching.
    // retouching.
    // 3D manipulation.
    // a digital darkroom.
    // self expression.
    // whatever I need it to be.

  • By Gayle Vehar - 12:51 PM on April 20, 2011  

    To me, Photoshop is an amazing tool that allows me to take the moment in time that my camera was able to produce and change it to what my mind saw in much the same way the masters used a darkroom to create their works of art!

  • By Frederik Høyer-Christensen - 12:51 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop will be, and has always been the household stable/working horse in that last step to perfection in images! No other software could ever compare! The perfect darkroom, but without the chemicals! :)

  • By Tanya Carriker - 12:51 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop to me means taking a picture that looks “ok” and turning it into something beautiful. It means taking my photographs in a direction that my camera never could. It helps use my creativity in more ways than I can count. Photoshop to me is just as important as my camera and own eyes when it comes to producing beautiful works of art.

  • By Lenny DiBrango - 12:52 PM on April 20, 2011

    It’s where a desert becomes an oasis, a pond is as large as an ocean.
    It’s where my mind tastes imagination.

    A huge stress reliever! A fun thing to do everyday! An experiment of what the wonderful things I can make up. A learning tool for making my photos look spectacular or sometimes horrible, lol. An “ah-ha” moment when I find out it can do something I hadn’t yet discovered. A tool that makes my son want to try it and then get frustrated at it. Photoshop is a lot of things. I use Photoshop (elements) to make pictures better and to come up with some fantasy pictures. Photoshop is almost like brushing my teeth but not there yet, I have to do it everyday!

    I recently had to use it to create some graphics for my Mom’s funeral service, so photoshop and I have shared many emotional moments together. I have been able to artistically express what I am feeling through the many tools in photoshop. It really can create some digital magic!! Thanks you adobe for creating this awesome program, which has allowed me to do so much!!!

  • By Cole Arnold - 12:59 PM on April 20, 2011  

    To me, photoshop has shaped my life, to what it is right now. A couple months ago, I was asked to do a logo for a company, because they have seen some of the video work I had done in AE ( just a little shout out : )) I had never done a logo before, and knew I could’t do it in AE. So I opened Photoshop for like the 2nd or 3rd time and started messing around. After I was done making a logo I felt pretty comfortable with text and brushes, and grew a love for the program. Now I am still very much a beginner, but from making that one logo, it has brought many more logo opportunities for me, that would have never come without Photoshop. (and I could have never done it in MS. Paint) : ) I just want to say thank you to the PS team, for changing my life, and giving me the ability to have these amazing opportunities, to get myself and my creativity out there.

    I think PS’s mission is to give people the tools, to help make their creativity, and ideas happen. It isn’t a program that does everything for you, which is what I love the most about it, it actually let’s you learn how to be creative.

  • By Nathan Sorochan - 1:00 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Apparently, I can’t modify my own comment, so here we go again :)

    Everyone here has a great point, with one commonality, that nothing about it’s users is common. Everyone has their own uses, reasons, and final products.

    Therefore, an ever-evolving tagline would be something perfect for photoshop.

    “Photoshop is ________”
    // creation.
    // manipulation.
    // touching.
    // retouching.
    // 3D manipulation.
    // a digital darkroom.
    // self expression.
    // something different to everyone.

    “Photoshop is.”

    (for an example of “is”, see my website – that is now fixed! yay!)

  • By Leszek - 1:00 PM on April 20, 2011

    The Design Guru

  • By Breanne - 1:03 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I started using photoshop when I was just 12 years old. I learned it myself after watching friends online do shoddy chop work (I thought it was amazing at the time) to probably copyrighted images. I quickly learned the ins and out, the dos and donts (including copyrighted image donts!) and surpassed my friends. I did photomanipulations for free for my friends.
    When I was 14 I took my first photoshop class. This was teh first time I had ever felt superior, being a typical average-smarts student with a slight learning disorder, it meant the world to me. I helped my teacher teach the class, since I was more advanced than even him. he came to me after class and asked if i wanted to help him officially. I did.
    Two years later I took a photography class that included photoshop work. Once again, shy average-intelligence *me* wowed the class, a room full of people that had made me feel inferior since before I could remember. Finally, people saw me for someone special!
    Currently I do photo editing for my friends for free. I’m in the beginning stages of starting my own photography business, but since I moved away from home (and my parents’ copy of photoshop) I am rather lacking. It would mean the world to me (and my prospective business, too!) to win either PS5 or the ipad. I’m a struggling 24 year old, getting ready to be married, trying to start my business, while finishing my last semester doing part time photography work at alocal community college, all out of my own paycheck, no parents’ help.
    Please, Adobe! I’ve been a fan for years, been a “pro” for just as long. I’ve stood up for the Adobe name through it all, and converted a few friends onto the”photoshop rocks” bandwagon. If anyone deserves at least a runners up, I think it would be me…
    Sincerely,
    shy, average-intelligence, but dedicated Photoshop User * < 3 *

    I remember when Photoshop 1 was available and I shown it to one of ma friend I told me “Amazing, what they can add more in this software” Some years after, we still use Photoshop and every new version it’s a huge surprise for us. New learning, earning time and a lot of “Wouah” in the office :)

    Continue to like this guys, it’s always a pleasure to work with the best tool ever :)

    Photoshop is more useful than most people, there would be a gap in my heart with out it.

  • By Marlene Hielema - 1:12 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop allows me to utilize all the data in a camera raw file. As a photographer the most powerful part of Photoshop is how it processes raw files. It gives me non-destructive editing power and allows me to use all of the information in the file. What that means to me is that I can shoot knowing that all the tones will be there when I open up the raw file! That’s the kind of creative control I need to have.

  • By Caroline - 1:13 PM on April 20, 2011  

    It IS my digital darkroom, design studio, and overall life-line both professionally and creatively.

    Without Photoshop, digital photography would just be a new way to take the same old photographs we used to take with our film cameras. It has revolutionized the industry and made it a much more beautiful place to live and work in!

    Photoshop is the only software that I would keep it if I was lost and alone on a lost island in the middle of the pacific. It is certain that I would miss an audience. Showing my creations to the worlds, would be my sole motivation to save me from this island. What a motivation, no?

    photoshop is my window to what i want to see in real life

  • By Brendan Conley - 1:14 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Using Photoshop for the first time and learning about layers and how intuitive the software is for a creative person like myself, reminded me of when I was sitting on my bed as a kid, with a book, and for the first time in my life I was able to read, and understand the text. All of a sudden the entire world opened up to me, all new possibilities started, everything didn’t seem so strange and distant, and I could connect with the world in a way that I could not before. Learning Photoshop had the same effect on my life, I did not feel so small and limited. I could connect with the world, and have a global voice through visual communication that was unattainable before. I hope that other people feel the same way about Photoshop, because the feeling only comes along a handful of times, if that, in a persons life.

    Photoshop is, to me, “A forge for photography”. Like a modern day blacksmith, Photoshop users take raw ore (we even call it RAW sometimes, haha), and use the tools of our trade, in specific, Photoshop, to craft it into works of wonder that could never have been seen in the original rough chunks of ore.

  • By Nick S. - 1:18 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the tool that makes dreams come true, beautiful more refined, interaction smoother, smiles whiter, people happier, designers better… but most of all it is what it is.. people know it is the best… they know it by name, initials, and icons… it is the essence and the core..

    Photoshop is as much your most hardworking assistant as your buddy to go hang out with to have a night on the town and see what happens. It’s as much a tool and a toy to me as is my camera.

    The only thing it can’t do, is replace your vision. But it can help you on the way there.

As photoshop has grown, so have I. I learn something new almost everyday that helps me do what I do the most efficient way possible. There is no way I could keep up with my clients demands without Photoshop. From web-site design to photo editing to Illustration, nothing comes close to meeting my needs or my clients. Thanks for all the hard work you guys do to make this the very best software available.

    Photoshop is both my livelihood and my passion; used for both work and play. As an a self-employed graphic designer, Photoshop provides me with the tools I need to turn my clients’ visions into reality. As a consultant, Photoshop enables me to automate my clients’ workflow through the use of scripts and actions. And as a serious photographer, Photoshop enables me to turn my photos into extraordinary works of art.

    Photoshop was the first program I used that allowed me to take various elements and layer them in one place without the use of pencils and paper. Ever since I touched Photoshop in 2005-2006, I got hooked. The first time I used Photoshop was for a project in college design course. (www.brandonhalliburton.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Brandon-Final-2.jpg). I know it looks horrible! I almost cringe when I look at it. It reminds me of where I started. I have grown significantly since then. I use Photoshop for almost EVERYTHING I DO. What once was a hobby to me, now is a door of opportunity for me. It has allowed me to generate income part-time and one day I hope to go full-time using this program.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this.

    Cheers,

    Photoshop to me is a lifestyle, a means to sustain a life and express yourself in the process.

  • By Alec Sprinkle - 1:29 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop means freedom. The freedom to create without limits, and the freedom to better myself. Because of PS I’ve pushed myself to learn about what art means to different people, and to appreciate the different forms.

  • By Francis - 1:29 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Are you serious?! If Photoshop could be liquefied and pumped into my veins, it might as well be my life line. Photoshop has opened new opportunities for me, introduced me to my own creativity, taught me discipline and hard work, and is now one of my indispensable tool as a freelancer. It has been a tool, a teacher, a friend, and sometimes an enemy that cannot be defeated while I pull my hair off. 😀 So to ask what Photoshop is for me is like asking what is the purpose of breathing for a man. :)

    Photoshop means my boys will have 2 eyebrows instead of one. The simple things mean the most. 😉

    Photoshop is how I better my school by making a yearbook we can all be proud of.

  • By Tess Miller - 1:30 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop has changed my life. I used to throw away dark photos and it sat on my computer without my knowledge of how to use it except to sharpen my photos. I then joined a digital scrap-booking community and starting learning how to use it. Although I am far from being an expert, I know so much more and use Photoshop in my digital scrap-booking almost daily. I also go looking for tuts to help me be even better.
    I would love to win the CS5 because I currently have PS7 and it is missing some of the wonderful things that can be done (like writing on curves).
    Thanks so much for the opportunity!

    PHOTOSHOP makes a photo beyond what was the actual shots taken and you can even fake, put a little magic or make fun of it. One size fits all.

  • By Pamela V - 1:31 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop helps keep my mind young with continued learning environment. You may eventually master photoshop, but you will never master any given photo. There is always something else you can enhance.

  • By Dennis Holmqvist - 1:32 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is a natural extension of my fantasy and lust to create. A way to fulfil dreams.

  • By Jennifer L - 1:32 PM on April 20, 2011  

    For me, Photoshop is my life… my heart, my soul, my passion. It allows me to create and to nurture all of those things. It allows me to capture memories and create art. It plays the leading role in my business and in my play. It allows me to continue to learn, experience and enjoy. For me, Photoshop is a part of me. I simply would not be the same person without it.

    Photoshop affords me the ability to creative and to care for my family by selling my creations.

  • By Joey Shipley - 1:35 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Before photoshop (and illustrator, but I’ll have to wait until you do another give-away for that one) I was some punk kid with a pencil, once photoshop (illustrator) came unto me, my rebirth of creativity had begun! Where would I be without it? Who really knows. But I want it. I need it.

    Really though, it takes my underdeveloped line art and turns it into real art. To me the pen tool just feels right.

  • By Nina Cole - 1:35 PM on April 20, 2011  

    It is my future, My Red Dress Designs…I love all the capabilities, I wouldn’t know where to start!! Thank you..

  • By Troy Bowman - 1:35 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is what started it all for me, I can still remember the first time I opened up version 4, mind = blown. It allows me to bring my creative thoughts to life in so many ways and allows me the ability to say “Yeah, I CAN do that” when the impossible is thrown at me. It’s the one of the only programs that I open EVERY SINGLE DAY.

  • By Maureen Tortolano - 1:35 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I use photoshop to really enhance my shots it really brings out the amazing colours and light.Everyone comments on how vibrant my photos are and thats thanks to photoshop.
    I do use it to pop my daughter next to a croc for her birthday card t00, which always brings a laugh.

    Photoshop for me is My passion. A friend that can tell you – “You can do it!” , a mentor, to tell me how to do it, and something that can suprise you at any time with its capabilities. The mission of photoshop for me is like when somebody said that Beauty will save the world, well , Photoshop give us the means to it.

    Photoshop makes my world go round, from the tiniest pixel to hundreds of layers that I create to make the best artwork I can. It brings life to so many dimensions, 2D, 3D and when you make those gifs, 4D. The only limit is that of ones mind.

    For me, it’s a gate to a world where everything is possible. To sum it in a short sentence, it would have to be “discover and create” or “make it happen”, because the images I can create with Photoshop can express my every emotion and allow me to fix or build anew anything I lack in real life.

    I have never actually owned Photoshop, but its curious that I have used it as a professional tool in most if not all of my contracting gigs within the last 4 years.

    Photoshop is a program that is transcendent, no matter where you are, on any device, this program is an extension of you.

    What is important about good design? Good design isn’t obtrusive, it helps/empowers us in a way that we can truly feel connected to our environment; and that you are empowering ourselves with our own experiences, ideas, and finesse.

    Photoshop is just that good!

Photoshop is ingrained in my daily work flow to the point where I would not know how I would deal without it. Thanks for a great tool, that is only limited by my imagination.

  • By Alan - 1:45 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I have been using Photoshop since version 1. I’m now retired and using CS3, because I can’t afford to go higher. It would mean so much to me to be able to continue using this fabulous software as time inexorably marches on.
    A truly big fan of PS.
    Thanks for this opportunity.

It allows me to express my self and get my ideas out there for the world to see. Even when making physical art it is the best tool to start planning and creating leading to the start of something great.

  • By jomer - 1:52 PM on April 20, 2011

    Editing photos creatively using Photoshop has brought back my real passion- ARTS!!
    Endless ideas came across my mind and made me feel like I am creating a world of mine!!! Photoshop means so much to me that there would be no day that I am using it, and whenever I am not at home, I would think of things I can do with Photoshop. My heart is for the arts and Photoshop has been my blood that circulates in my body.

  • By Jason Kupiec - 1:54 PM on April 20, 2011  

    As a web developer we require the use of photoshop on a daily basis for the way our designers send us graphics to implement into our web projects. We also use it when we are developing apps for iOS devices. If not for photoshop, our job and the job of our amazing designers would be lost and the time it would take to duplicate the same results would be astronomical. Thanks for a great product and a productive tool! Now if we only had an iPad to test our apps on using the photoshop software…

  • By Wes DeKoninck - 1:54 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop in the beginning for me was sooo overwhelming, but as I grew as a designer photoshop grew with me…allowing me to open up more of it’s secrets and inherently doing what I needed it to.

    To me it means the removing the word “can’t” from my graphic and design vocabulary and replacing it with “can”. Thank you Photoshop for being there for me with your amazing tools and capabilities and allowing all of us digital designers to create and be creative.

    Continue to change and evolve and we will evolve with you!

    Photoshop is definitely a hard working member of my family!

  • By Catherine Santana - 1:54 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop has been my growing up companion. My childhood friend, my diary, my confident. When words cannot express how I feel, when feelings are not enough, I trust Him. I let Him be my right hand, my blind heart. And with every stroke, with every hint of color, I am free. I become one with my art, I can EXPRESS myself, without telling you the story, without telling them the motives. Photoshop is a piece of art, that We can acquire and mold to our likings. As I grow up, and see the steps I’ve taken, how I’ve succeeded and how I have fallen too, Photoshop is there recording those moments. If I were legally diagnosed with an addiction it would be Adobe.

    What is Photoshop to you?: To sum up Photoshop in a mere couple sentences seems all too kind. It means many things to many people, but to me it signifies a collaboration of effort from a team of engineers / programmers who make it possible for all of us designers to make the impossible, possible… to create what isn’t there, there… in a basic sense, to have a valuable tool in a game creativity.

    How would you define its mission?: Defining the mission of Photoshop is like defining the mission of well balanced human being. Is it to be kind, to help others in need, to educate? Probably all of the above. Photoshop’s mission is to wow it’s users, clients and everybody under the sun with it’s vast capabilities be it the occasional user, beginner or seasoned professional. I have found no end in sight to what it can really accomplish.

    What is its purpose in your life?: In my everyday use, Photoshop serves the purpose of speeding up and completing tasks that would otherwise be impossible without it. I have impressed many clients, employers and myself with what it can do. It has landed my jobs, promotions, and even put smiles on someone’s face when they needed something done in a hurry.

    How do you use it?: With as much RAM as possible of course! My use of the program has been for both personal and professional. I use it for in-depth color correction. I use it to remove an unwanted persons. I’ve used it sell a car. I use it for packaging. I use it to make something invisible. so whether it’s adjustment layers, custom brushes, filters or curves, I use Photoshop for what it’s intended for… to WOW others.

    Photoshop is one of the many ‘standard’ creation tools I keep on hand. I keep it in my bag of tricks, right next to paper, pencils and imagination. It has grown up with me, and honestly it’s been exciting to watch us both expand our capabilities over the years.

  • By Robert - 1:56 PM on April 20, 2011  

    The statement that describes Photoshop to me best is just one word, “Create.” It allows me to Create anything and everything I could ever want, there are no limits to what I can do thanks to the best digital world tool around. Photoshop, It allows me to Create.

    Both my Wife and Son are going to school to get their Art Major, The Wife wants to be an Art teacher and our Son is a very good comic artist and can draw just about anything. Having an Ipad and Photoshop would be a great tool for them to share and enhance their artistic skills.
    Photoshop means imaginative creativity driven by an incredible passion for self expression through your computer.
    Thanks

    Photoshop allows me to try new things without being affraid of ruining a canvas I can restructure a painting anyway I choose without purchasing more paint or cleaning my paintbrushes. I can be bold and unninhibited in my art it also allows me to add dynamic elements I wouldn’t normally be able to add to my artwork without photoshop. I feel as though the world would be a different place without this software and artists would not be able to create art that exceeds even thier own imagination. Thank you photoshop!

  • By Velinda Iverson - 1:57 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop has shown me that I am able to express my creativity in many ways. It’s all I want to do, is design and create beautiful things.

  • By Dave - 1:58 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I bought my first copy of Photoshop for an internship at an advertising agency when I was in high school. I took the internship because I didn’t want to spend the summer doing the same carpentry I’d done the year before. I knew nothing about the program other than I needed it to get into the internship and it was great for swapping heads in photos around, hilarious stuff. (Hey, I was in high school…)

    11 years later, I have Photoshop open here at work and I don’t go more than a day or two without creating something new. Photoshop opened up a career path I didn’t expect to take, one I didn’t even realize was an option, and I can’t imagine doing anything else now.

    Photoshop defination to me is “SHOP YOUR PHOTOS AS YOU LIKE”

    PHOTOSHOP software is a “IMAGINATION OF A VISION” to Me.
    Photoshop completes a picture. When it come to editing, no other softwares come closer to it you can get all the options in one software this is “ADOBES” Best software which i have used in pixel works. Whenever i see a picture not going in to my vision i’ll bring it in photoshop and edit. This software not only help to Designers, Photographers but also to a students. In this software we can show so much creativity. Commenting on this software will never end so thanks to Adobe for giving this software to “THE WORLD OF CREATIVITY”
    Thanks!
    Thanks alot!

It’s not just something i work with everyday, its also a chance to picture the things within my mind, so that everyone can see exactly my point of view. Photoshop has alwyas been a possibility for me to build my skills and along with it a way to express my creative thoughts.

    As one person had mentioned, “it’s my digital oxygen”, it couldn’t be said any better.

    Photoshop to me opened the door to creativity that I always had longed for as a child. To be able to make things the way I wanted. It made me work just for fun. It made me eager to take pictures just so I could work with them on my computer, and confident enough to make it a part of my daytime job. Photoshop both motivates me to experiment as well as it makes my ideas possible. And there is always new things to learn. Never gets boring.

Whether through personal art, business designs, or enhancing photography, Photoshop has helped with these tasks and more.

    Photoshop, to me, is a tool. It doesn’t make the art, it helps extract that art from my brain to my hands, to the screen and then onto print or the web. It is the ULTIMATE tool and resource for most people on the planet! Thank You Photoshop and Thank You Adobe!

  • By Chris M. - 2:30 PM on April 20, 2011

  • By Mateusz Delikat - 2:30 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I may be not really creative on this one, but Photoshop just made my life colorful. Before CS2 trial I’ve been a guy with no real skills or interest in art and things like that. But then I’ve found it really enjoyable because every little thing I’ve created was mine and only mine. I’ve become master over my ideas, and Photoshop made them to pop out of my head just like that:). I’m reeeeaaaaaally thankful for Photoshop – Thank you very much Adobe team!

  • By Bryan - 2:33 PM on April 20, 2011  

    To me, Photoshop is a reminder that every bit of learning, practice, and discovery can push the limits of visual art and design. Every day, it becomes easier to create the images we keep in our minds.

    Since I found PS two years ago I have given up TV and other stuff so that I can spend hours each day on my new passion. I am self taught like many others and my skills grow daily. I love following tutorials in the ‘Advanced Photoshop’ magazine even if the work is not in my genre because it improves my skills and widens my horizons. With all these skills and a fabulous PS app on hand I am always ready to turn my inspiration, when it comes, into reality.

    The process is sheer magic.

    Photoshop: the power to create.

  • By Erika - 2:38 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is another art media for me, and its potential is boundless. I’ve been amazed at how much inspiration I get from seeing what others create with this media from the ultra-real to surreal. I used to be more of an Illustrator fan, and I also paint on canvas, but lately I’m exploring new illustration techniques using Photoshop and I’m using the same painting techniques that I’d use with real paints and brushes in Photoshop. My creativity and artistic drive has never been higher, and in part, it’s because I’ve been seeing a lot of amazing things being done digitally, and I want to keep creating new stuff too.

  • By Miguel Berrios - 2:43 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is part of my life in so many ways. I use it for both work and play because it helps me be as creative as I can possibly be and then some. It’s amazing how it has grown over the years to be a tool not only for the professional graphic designer developing artwork to be featured in a large billboard but also the everyday Joe that is looking to spruce up his wedding pictures for his upcoming anniversary.

  • By Kyle - 2:49 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I really just want to take a moment to let Adobe know how much Photoshop has meant to me over the years. I first started using Photoshop while in college. Slowly, I became more comfortable with the program until it really became second nature. My skills in Photoshop have helped since then land my first job, design websites, and professionally edit photos for my side business. Simply put, where would any painter be without their brushes and tools? I really just want to say thanks to everyone at Adobe. Your product has really opened a lot of doors for me and it wouldn’t have been possible without Photoshop.

    Photoshop opened up so many opportunities for me. The 1st time I ever opened up Photoshop was almost a decade ago, then it was all about being able to make artwork on a computer. I was amazed that I could put my creativity into a machine and it be translated into something in Photoshop. Fast forward to 2011 and I make a living using Photoshop on a daily basis. Photoshop has made it possible to work with one of my all time hip-hop artists, as well as work closely with some of my hometown businesses to recreate their brands and better there business. I’ve loved every moment I’ve spent using Photoshop, and without I wouldn’t be the person I am now. Thanks for everything Adobe & the Photoshop team! Love you guys! lol

    I’ve used photoshop since I was 15.. I use it to a lot of things, photomanipukations, small editing work for pictures, painting, drawing, graphic designs for poster, web sites, text/font designs, etc. it’s amazing. I also use other adobe programmes as premiere, indesign, audition, soundbooth, aftereffects, dreamweaver and flash. I’d like to learn illustrator though, just never come that far.

    Then you reconsider… and realize how the world around you has fallen apart and is in continuos demanding need of designers, making it a better place!

  • By Geoffboyardee - 3:08 PM on April 20, 2011  

    To me, Photoshop has been the portal for people to make almost any picture they take “the perfect picture”.

    And while it has spawned wannabe’s, it has only made me work harder to take “that perfect picture”, a picture that is so good that people will think it has been photoshopped when it really has not.

    (plus switching faces isn’t too bad either) 😀

I’ve expanded my art greatly with Photoshop by digital painting and effects. I can’t believe how much it has helped me improve. It is my life and what I plan to do in my future. It has helped so many people like me create for the rest of the world. It is fun and easy to use. Everything about it, I just love it.

  • By Ryan - 3:14 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I am a long time web designer and developer who after many years of active addiction has found sobriety and finally started an LLC. Photoshop produces undoubtedly the best images for the web. However, just starting out I am not in the financial position to procure it. Someday hopefully. Although I use GIMP and manage, this is one area where I believe (and don’t get me wrong I’m a big open-source proponent) the open-source alternative does not compare.

    Rich, well not me for
    Photoshop is forever
    Priced just out of range

    However this short rhyme shows what I love.
    Blemish gone. Never there. With Photoshop’s content-aware

    Whether you are a photographer, an artist, a graphic designer, or just someone wanting to express their creativity, Photoshop gives you the necessary tools to express the monster that is human creativity in many different and satisfying ways.

    I came across photoshop years ago in college in a graphics class and I was truly amazed. I was able use a student version thankfully because, being a student, I couldn’t afford the full version. Life through my boyfriend a curve and I found myself spending hours and hours with him in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy, having surgeries and keeping a happy and positive outlook for him. In those wee hours when I did make it home, my mind would not settle down. That’s when I would fire up the computer and let photoshop take me away. No pain, no tears, no hospitals or tubes or needles…..just inspiration and life and love flowing out of my heart and into my creations. It gave me a smile to myself, not one I felt I had to paint on for everyone, including my boyfriend when the prognosis was grim. I never did finish that degree in graph design back then but still hope to one day. My boyfriend(husband for almost 23 years) has been cancer free for 24 years.

    I still use photoshop, but in the more affordable “elements” version and I still love it as much as I did back then. Thankfully, I don’t have the stress at 50 years old that I had at 25.

    What does photoshop mean to me? Photoshop was my digital friend when my family was too far away for a comforting hug. It was my silent psychologist that drew in all my feelings and placed them on it’s canvas. It never looked at it’s watch, never told me I was selfish for not wanting to let go of hope when I could see my boyfriend tired and wanting to give up. It didn’t sit in judgement at my positivity that things would be ok despite all the hopelessness I saw and felt with everyone around me. It let me create until I could keep my eyes open no longer. Thank You Photoshop. Thanks for being there. Thanks for having the avenue for me to hush the noise in my right brain and let my left brain take over for a while. I hope we get to spend many more years together.

  • By Randy - 3:47 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop has become the foundation for the world of all things digital art. It is the Google of digital art. When you need to find out information, you Google it. But when you need to manipulate a picture, you Photoshop it.

    Photoshop is a program of many languages. Careers are built around it all over the world. Websites are dedicated to it. There are masters and there are students.

    [Queue patriotic music] To me, Photoshop means working hard to be better. It means following the trails created by the creative and growing in that process to create new trails for the next generation to follow. On our own we are limited. Photoshop unites the world to create great works.

    Photoshop gets me through the work day. As a designer using Photoshop 6.0 in my cubicle, it is my creative island in a sea of outbound sales reps. It is not CS5, but it’s the same version that sparked my passion to enter the graphic design field in middle school. Photoshop means so many things. The chance to restore family photos of loved ones who have past. The courage to design websites with a print design background. The opportunity to ask questions or share a story through collage. The ability to photograph what isn’t there, but lies truly in artistic vision. Without Photoshop, we could still do these all things. However Photoshop, (along with all of the Adobe programs), serves as a think tank for exploring endless creative endeavors inside and outside the computer. Thank you. <3

  • By Gary Smith - 3:50 PM on April 20, 2011  

    What Photoshop means to me?..where do I start? It’s presenting ideas to reshape the future of mankind..it’s the ad you see on your local billboard, the company logo on the huge sign at a local business, on a website, on a television..it’s nearly every aspect of society..it’s the primary tool that’s used to share ideas and information to the human mind.

    The amount of uses from Photoshop is limitless, I can’t think of one project I’ve worked on without Photoshop in my production pipeline. I’m a digital artist, and I use Photoshop as my foundation software. It’s the alpha and omega..the “God” of creation software, for lack of a better term. It’s what I use to map ideas on a storyboard, to create textures for my artwork, and as the last tool for post-production to finalize a finished piece..not to mention it’s the primary tool I use to design websites and write my tutorials to share with the world.

    If Photoshop wasn’t around, the internet and the way we do business wouldn’t exist..we wouldn’t have evolved to the level we’re at and be as informed in today’s world without it..Photoshop is ultimately the most important tool in the entertainment and media industry, and every other major business on the planet that I can think of. It’s an absolutely sensational tool, and one is only limited by their imagination when using it. The program really speaks for itself..I don’t know what I can even say about it that hasn’t already been said by someone else..countless people use this amazing software for countless reasons..there really is no limit.

    Photoshop is the glue that holds our lives together..it really means more than words can describe, not only to me, but to humanity as a whole..whether most people realize it or not. Photoshop to me, means evolution. It assures me that communication and information will constantly grow and bring a bright future to man.

    Photoshop is my Life!
    I know it might be big words to say, but I truly can not function without – you changed my life.

    I don’t see Photoshop as a application, but as a important part of my life and identity. Photoshop let’s me change the world I live in and let my ideas become reality. I only see opportunities on my digital canvas and love to spend countess hours experimenting and challenge myself to achieve greater results.

    My main passion and childhood dream, was to become a cartoonist, but sadly, in 2001, I encountered an artist block which would not go away.
    My passion had left me, I entered a dark stressful period and even if I kept on trying to regain my former days, I would only fall deeper.

    This forced me to rethink what I wanted to become in life, as my dream to become a cartoonist had bursted. In panic I decided to take a different path in life and ended up choosing an education in advertising, as a Media Graphic Designer.

    The Photoshop application was not unfamiliar for me back then, since I tried it for the first time in 1998 and used it in connection the with coloring of my drawings. But my knowledge was limited since I had only scratched the surface of the application.

    My education helped me gain better knowledge, became more confident and I started to know my ways around Photoshop’s big variety of features.

    Later on, I landed a job at a advertising agency, and one year after hiring me, the art directors noticed my strength with Photoshop. So from 2004, until today, I have become the “Photoshop wizard” at my workplaces, and today about 80% of my assignments involved heavy retouch and manipulation work.

    I learned a lot from my work with advertising campaigns etc. mostly due to the quality of photos used. I remember disliking many of the retouch assignments I had, because of the poor quality, due to budgets and bad photo material. This forced me to figure out ways to push a photo to the limit, to achieve a good or decent result, which I’m very thankful for today. Had I not worked with these assignment, I would never have developed the skills I have today.

    Today Photoshop is my main passion, a dream come true and, I say again, the most important part of my life, I can not function without it.
    I’ll keep on playing, learning and creating art with the help of Photoshop. I look forward to every joyful new Photoshop upgrade, since it only makes my world of art become larger.

    So big thanks to the Adobe team for creating and keep on expanding the features of Photoshop, and for becoming part of my life :-)

    If you are interested, then you are more than welcome to enjoy some of my creations at my online portfolio at http://www.mrKSB.com

    Yours Sincerely

    For me, Photoshop is creation, exploration and inspiration…..

    It has more function than any other program I have used and while it’s complex, it’s also intuitive and gives me the ability to make the things in my head, come alive on my screen!

    I’m not an artist by trade. I don’t use Photoshop for work. I’m not paid for anything I create. Still, I can’t imagine not having Photoshop. I use it every day, and most of my hardware purchases revolve around the question, “Will this help me with my Photoshop?”. Simply put, if I were only allowed one software program for the rest of my life, hands down it would be Photoshop. Its possibilities are limited only by my imagination!

    Photoshop is the epitome of my life. Such an advanced program deserves the title of “Godly” Photoshop is necessary for everyday living for me. I use it everyday, wherever I go. School, work and home. My relationship with Photoshop has grown as the program itself has grown, with every new advancement making me love it even more. As Leonardo Da Vinci once said, “As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death,” is true to Photoshop as any day spent on it brings eternal happiness, yet with Photoshop I never usually end up with any form of sleep. Spending more hours on Photoshop than what I’ve spent at school, with a vast amount of tools, ready for me to design beautiful pieces of art. It helps me turn dreams into reality, by creating websites and providing them for clients around the world. I have a dream…. that I will create a successful business from website development, and Photoshop will be the “Gaurdian Angel” providing insight, a path, to what should be done for me to achieve this goal.

    Photoshop means the world to me. It allows me to create anything that my mind can think up, whether it be a simple poster or a burger that looks like it could bite your hand off if you tried to eat it(I actually made this in Photoshop: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Midnight-Cafe/681138). It is the reason I chose to become a Graphic Designer and why I went to Full Sail University. I have been using Photoshop for around 7 years now and can not imagine where or what I would be doing without it. Honestly, without Photoshop, I’d probably have a pretty uncreative life and probably be working a cashiering job for my career. Design is the only marketable skill I have and I never would have gotten that if it wasn’t for this amazing program.

    So when I say Photoshop means the world to me, I mean it. It has had such an impact on my life and has helped me get to where I am today. I see Photoshop like a part of the family rather then just a piece of software on my computer. I know that may sound weird, but something that has had such an impact on my life I can’t see any other way.

    From the bottom of my heart,thank you to all the wonderful people on the Photoshop team. Your work has had not only a huge impact on my life but also on the world and continues to this day. Every time you update this program, you change the design and photography world in a profound way. I can’t imagine where the world would be without you. Keep up the great work and I look forward to CS6!

Spending more hours on Photoshop than what I’ve spent at school, with a vast amount of tools, ready for me to design beautiful pieces of art. It helps me turn dreams into reality, by creating websites and providing them for clients around the world. I have a dream…. that I will create a successful business from website development, and Photoshop will be the “Gaurdian Angel” providing insight, a path, to what should be done for me to achieve this goal.

  • By David - 4:25 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Without fail, there is one program that I never close. Photoshop is open from on my computer from the moment I turn it on until the moment I shut it off, always in the background, always ready to conjure up whatever concoction my misfiring mind can contemplate. From the first time I pushed a pixel until this very moment, as it sits open simultaneously on my work computer and my personal laptop propped open beside it, Photoshop has seen me grow from a hobbyist to a respected professional. I am thankful to it for everything it has done for me, my career, and my life. Here’s to another 21 years, and as a parting gift: http://www.snegidhi.com/2010/108-13-07/photoshop_editing_06.jpg

I love learning new things and i hope to continue learning as i get older. my mom knows how passionate i am about my career as a photographer and graphic designer. But she is unable to come up with the money to buy photoshop for me to use at home. Considering she is a single mom supporting 4 kids with a teachers salary. if i am chosen it would mean a lot to me.

I think it’s mission in my life is to help me use my imagination to heights I never thought possible.

  • By Ben - 6:03 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the tool that allows me to live my dream of design. I wake up each and every day for work and don’t cringe knowing that no matter what the day throws at me, I have a reliable, stable software solution that will allow me to bring my ideas to life and get the job done. I’ve never had that before… I love my job!

    Our clients are constantly surprised with what we can produce for their businesses be it print, digital, or otherwise, and I have complete confidence in making good on our promises no matter how over-the-top they may seem. Photoshop (and indeed the entire Adobe suite) makes life fun for the designer in all of us.

    That’s my two bits worth, thanks for reading. Good luck to everyone!

I have used it to court my longtime girlfriend,and I use Photoshop as a form of praising God. Photoshop has stuck with me as I have changed and grown. Photoshop is more than just a software to me…it’s an old best friend!

An easy working relationship. A daily joy (and—let’s be honest—an occasional frustration!). A journey of learning about each other—what it’s capable of, and the way I work. A life made better by being together. And finally… a companion so close, and so indispensable, I can’t imagine a future without it.

    Photoshop, for me, is a way to get the most of the pictures that I post to the website of our camp for disadvantaged children. It’s making the most of the pictures we have and being able to use them to get more campers interested in our camp, and expand our outreach to the community by designing eye-catching advertisements for our fund-raisers. Without photoshop, our ability to effectively communicate with people both off- and on-line would be dramatically hurt.

    Photoshop is, quite simply, the most amazing software ever developed. The developers have been able to develop some of the most sophisticated mathematical algorithms imaginable for image manipulation, and put them behind a user interface that allows us to concentrate on the art. And if that wasn’t enough, the program is so responsive that I can hardly believe it. I’ve been involved in software development for over 30 years, and each time I use the software, I am in awe.

    Let me repeat: “Photoshop is, quite simply, the most amazing software ever developed.”

Hours will pass, and I feel like I’m playing a video game. It’s so much fun to me. I’ve been working with the program since I was 17 years old. I’m 25 now and still haven’t mastered it. It’s an infinite abyss of accomplishments, and I’m excited to spend the next 40+ years of my career exploring more. Photoshop is a part of who I am – it makes me so happy. Anything is truly possible.

    I know the mission of Photoshop from Adobes site; it’s hard to come up with my own definition, as I already know it from you. As much as I’ll try; Photoshop is a piece of software that opens up the imaginative ability of minds to create what their perceptions are. They can then alter this to their own benefits, which leads to web design, graphic design, posters, etc. They can do it for fun, they can do it as a profession, it doesn’t really matter. What people do, we enjoy.

    It’s story time now; it’s a long read, as it basically starts from the beginning.

    Ever since I was born, I’ve always moved a lot because of my parents.

    I shared no hobbies or interests with others, except the usual videogames, hockey, etc. I always had hours and hours of spare time, with nothing to do.

    When I was about 11 years old, my favourite flash game; Bubble or something along the lines of that, stopped working (I have photographic memory, so my memory is quite strong). As a bright child, I figured out I needed to update my ‘Adobe Flash Player’, and how to do it. I did it, and while I was on the site of Adobe, I found the Photoshop section. I was amazed at the price, before anything else, so I thought this must be really cool to be that expensive.

    I always perceived everything in a black-and-white manner. 1+1=2; nothing more nothing less, etc. I never appreciated the arts, or had an interest.

    Google’d Photoshop, my mind was blown. I never knew about graphic designing, abstracts and things like that. It was simply wonderful, all the different effects, all the precise symmetrical designs; abstracts and anything that really mattered.

    I wanted Photoshop. I wanted to try out graphic designing. More importantly, this gave me a chance to stand out from the others and get attention, since I knew not of anyone who does these things.

    Sadly, I knew I would not be able to afford it, or get my parents to buy it for me. So that was a major let down, and I forgot all about it in a few weeks.

    A few months before I turned 12, I decided to look around for things similar to it. Eventually I found GIMP. I fell in love, and did things such as signatures, as many people start off doing, photomanipulations and etc. Everyone was always impressed with what I did, and I finally started getting the attention I looked for.

    I used GIMP until I was 13 or 14 years old…

    Then I got my very own copy of CS3. As a gift from my cousins. I fell in love all over again. It was faster, more accurate and precise, and much more efficient than GIMP. I don’t think I ever touched GIMP after that, but there’s always a special place in my heart for it.

    I started off doing more advanced photomanipulations, read guides, tutorials, anything. I used it for school work, got praise and everything. It was amazing.

    Life struggles, mental issues and attention issues kicked in a year ago. I use Photoshop almost every day, just to play around in it. I do not have the mental concentration to create anything well over an hour. I hate it, because I can not complete anything, I can not do anything that I used to love doing. Even mathematics or sciences. All that imagination, all that creativity and mental effort just fades after a while. Even typing this, my ideas jump and fade…

    I’m 16 now.

    Photoshop CS3, I only use for my Photography courses or assignments in other classes, such as presentations for Physics, etc. It’s become a bit buggy, I’ve lost the original case and everything, except for the program on this computer that has barely over 20GB left in memory.

    There are probably hundreds of .psd files that haven’t been completed scattered everywhere.

    Graphic designing is something I love as a hobby; I’ve thought about it as a profession once, but it never really suited me, as I love knowledge just as much.

    I’ve always tried to look for some sort of motivation to start things up again.

    Getting CS5 is not the motivation. It has new features, but it’s possible to recreate the effects on previous versions.

    What the motivation is, or what I believe it is, is a reason to start creating things again. CS5 will give me a reason to open up Photoshop more often, but what I want to create is what I will thrive for.

    Photoshop is what we thrive for; as a result, perception blooms.

    I hate writing, but I’ll let this slide through, as it is motivation in itself.

    As a web developer and designer, PhotoShop is my life blood. Without PhotoShop I would not have my comfy apartment, food on my table, and gas in my car. It is the tool that I use to impress my customers, The tool that I is bar far the most fun to use.

  • By Tim Maguire - 7:12 PM on April 20, 2011  

    PS has been my go to app for creativity since I was in high school (1996). Today it let’s me embrace the boundaries of photography through it’s HDR capabilities, and panorama compositing versatility.

    From a work standpoint it’s integrates beautifully with Flash, providing capabilities to create the most dynamic and interactive sites.

    PS will always be the cornerstone of function and utility for me.

  • By Mark R Friedman - 7:16 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is an enabler, as is LightRoom.

    I realize people can make an entire career specializing in the use of these tools; and I’ve heard it said that Photoshop is so intricate that there’s no-one at Adobe who really knows it all.

    My background is in shooting 35mm film and began using Photoshop when I first bought a film scanner.
    In the early days, I was easily able to make the modest adjustments I wanted and enjoyed the plug-ins available at the time.

    Although I still shoot with a photojournalistic eye, there are times I use tools never dreamt of in the early 1990s: exposure fusion and stacking are current favorites. However I start with a RAW file that must be processed somewhere, somehow. And maintain the metadata along the way – Helping me organize my work these many years.

    The technology provided by Adobe enables me (who took up photography because I cannot draw nor paint) to allow other people to share my visions.

    I want folks to see what I find interesting in the world; I see more than most due to my ADHD, OCD and Asperger’s because I’m easily fascinated and distracted in my environment. My experience is most people are to busy to pay attention to their surroundings.

    I don’t (usually) need to enhance my work. Presenting it is sufficient. In this digital age, using it is mandatory for me. In the past, I gave slide shows. Those days ended long ago. The future, if we look far enough ahead (say 10 years) is completely opaque; however experience has shown it will look nothing like it does today. And I suspect Adobe will still be a major enabler for users (if that will be an accurate term at the time).

  • By Freida Kirkland - 7:29 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop has always meant so much to me; with it I could do anything graphically that I could dream up. Unfortunately, I no longer have this amazing software and have been lost without it! It was so essential to my art that I have not been able to design anything in over TWO years. Just using it for my personal photos made having it so necessary. I even have a video tutorial on my blog, that I created many years ago, on how to use the High Pass filter to enhance one’s photos. It is still popular with my readers. I truly miss Photoshop EVERY day – I would even take an old version! I just want it back! If begging would help, consider me begging! Thank you for the opportunity!

  • By Rob Whitehead - 7:41 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Many years ago, I saw Photoshop demonstrated at an exhibition in New York. It was as if I was looking into the future. I have been teaching Photoshop at a local art school for the past 11 years, touching the lives of many with this amazing program. I also use it almost everyday in my job as a senior web designer for a bank. What used to take me an hour in the conventional darkroom can now be done in minutes thanks to the brilliant minds at Adobe.

  • By Kshitij Anand - 7:44 PM on April 20, 2011  

    With a pen, an eraser, a brush, a marquee and a lasso – Photoshop lets me become anything.

  • By William Singleton - 7:44 PM on April 20, 2011  

    This is going to sound corny as hell, but PS is me. If I’m feeling off-the-wall and out there, I can pump out crazy collages with lots of odd text. When I’m feeling focused, I end up with filter-heavy geometry and bold gradients. When I’m calm and relaxed, I like to paint and do photo-editing. It’s like a friend that knows just what I need and can handle almost any problem I can throw at it.

    I’m still using an older version (broke artist), but after 16 years of use, I still find myself amazed at an unexpected result or new technique. How many things in life can do that? Being a few versions behind makes me wonder what the current gen would allow me to accomplish!

    Of course, I wouldn’t say no to an iPad!

  • By Evan B - 7:46 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop is the base for my job and artwork. I use it everyday to create websites, advertisements and artworks. It helps me to express myself creatively AND pay my everyday bills. What more could I ask for?

    Thank you Adobe!

  • By Frank Goertzen - 7:47 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Let’s get one thing straight. I was born into a mennonite community so I was probably the furthest thing from ever seeing a computer much less using Photoshop. To make a long story short I now live with Photoshop and it’s as much a part of how I express myself as any other tool I might use. I love that everytime it starts I see all the developers who’ve worked on it – and what an achievement. To the whole team over there CHEERS!! and thanks for the just amazing amount of work and devotion you’ve put into Photoshop there are thousands if not millions of people who have benefited from it.

I joke with my colleagues that I would never want to teach math or english, but I’m serious, I have the best job in the world because it revolves around Photoshop! So I am grateful to the folks at Adobe that make this software the amazing experience that it is for an experienced user like myself or to brand new Photoshop newbies like my students. Keep up the good work!

    Photoshop has helped me discover my true talent and what I was meant to do in life – graphic design. Ever since I first tried my hand at using it in 8th grade, I haven’t been able to live without it. Now, several years later as a college design student, I still feel the same excitement in starting a new project as I did when I was younger. Whether I’m doing an illustration or simply retouching a photo, Photoshop gives me the ability to do anything and everything.

  • By Kevin - 8:38 PM on April 20, 2011  

    I’m not an artist, I was never an artist, until I discovered that I can make beautiful things using Photoshop. I never thought I had a creative bone in my body, I’ve found out that I really do, moreso than I would have ever imagined. With photoshop I have found a joy in creating and experimenting with art and graphics that I would never have thought I would have. I’m still not an artist, but I dearly love trying to be one, and I love it when someone compliments or appreciates something I have created. Is there a bigger thrill in the world than when someone looks at sopmething you brought forth from a blank canvass and says “Wow, I really like that!”?

    Photoshop has become an almost integral part of my life. I use it daily whether I’m creating a full photo-manipulation or just doing some simple post processing on my latest pictures, it is always running. It’s allowed me to truly find my passion for art and design, and although I’m still in high school, I feel like I couldn’t do anything better and feel as great as I do while I’m doing it! I used to really not like art much at all, and I took a class that used Photoshop to a great extent, and I absolutely fell in love.

    Thank you for not only helping me discover my passion, but thank you for creating such an amazing program that I will continue to use for years and years to come!

    Am 17 and i love photoshop. Photoshop has introduced me to so many forms
    of art i’ve never known existed, also it helped me become better as a designer.
    Photoshop turned something i love doing as a hobby into a career option am
    looking into when i pick a major for college. Photoshop has helped me grown
    as an artist. Clearly photoshop’s mission is not to only make designing easier but also more creative and imaginative. Photoshop brings out the hidden
    creativity out of anyone as long as their willing to learn and master Ps.
    Photoshop is my pen and paper when am not drawing and my sketchbook when am
    not sketching. Photoshop helps me bring to life all the ideas i have in my mind vividly.
    Ps helps me visualize my ideas easily. I use photshop for sketching and mainly
    designing. I also enjoy using photoshop for image manipulations because
    of its many advanced controls to help blend in and control images.
    I will admit, am Addicted to Photoshop.

    Photoshop has allowed me to use my creativity in new and profound ways. Since first using it at 5.5, it has taken me from Oklahoma to Kentucky to California. I have worked in web design, print, labs, photography, teaching and video all because this wonderful piece of software has been part of my life. Thanks Adobe for making something that has not only provided for my family, but allowed me to expand beyond boundaries I never imagined possible.

  • By Dread7 - 8:59 PM on April 20, 2011

    Photoshop allows me to create, manipulate and design perfection. I love the control I have with the program, distorting reality and fashioning an alternate universe. It is the world where I am able to escape and play god. Photoshop’s amazing potential allows for one to truly be free…

    Photoshop has been very inspirational and indispensable to me. I’ve been using it for many years and love it more with each year that passes. It’s been great seeing Photoshop develop in to a more extensive and user friendly piece of software as the years have passed. I’ve been able to use it for personal art projects, graphic design, photo retouching, and hundreds of other things. Photoshop far surpasses its competitors. I look forward to learning more about Photoshop and seeing what comes next!

    Photoshop is more to me than a tool to shoop photos. It’s my green time machine. Photoshop connects me to my relatives, turning back the clock to look at an old picture as if it were new. Photoshop helps me undo the undo-able on paper and canvas. Photoshop saves plenty of trees from my doodling wrath.

    Photoshop is my powerful stead that I ride though the sky farting sunflowers down to the lovely earth below.

    Photoshop is my digital canvas. Ideas that flood my mind with every waking moment are brought to life, screaming into reality as if held prisoner for thousands of years. I am in complete control of my dreams because now they lay here in front of me, bound only by a simple grey box until I deem them ready to take on the world; someday, maybe the universe. Photoshop is my dreams become real.

  • By PECourtejoie - 9:46 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop, to me, is something I wish I could plug-in to my brain, to select what is wrong in this world, and layer it with beauty, and wiseness. (Doesn’t that sound like a beauty pageant winner’s speech?)
    Then, I’d clone stamp myself, so that I could hang around more friends at the same time.
    I would use the best channels to spread knowledge; some curves curves to boost the levels of certain people; I would lasso nice stuff around, store it in my presets lists, that I could browse while dreaming with Bridge. The magic wand would be useful to clean my desk, too 😀

    Thanks, Photoshop for being such a useful to move people by moving pixels around!

  • By Arvydas K. - 9:47 PM on April 20, 2011

    Photoshop creates unusual & unique potential in every photograph… and a creative answer to every “I wish I had a camera” moment – because, if you can think it, you can (re)create it.

    Photoshop is a connection- past, present & future… an expression of “What If”…

    Photoshop is my Fix.

  • By Heather Wilburn Erb - 9:48 PM on April 20, 2011  

    Photoshop has always been my shoulder to lean on…for every thing that life happens to throw my way. Weather I am up and excited in life, or down and needing a way to express myself. Its where we dream up art that our imaginations have created….and easily put into action where we can show others. Photoshop is what I am, who I am to others and who I would like to be. It tells my story to others without them having to ask me. In simple words…My art and designs are a presentation of me and who I am in this world……Without Photoshop to create a window of my life to others…There wouldn’t be a me! Thank you for Photoshop!

  • By Pavel Sekerka - 9:49 PM on April 20, 2011

I used Photoshop for creating textures for 3d models, for designing websites, designing icons, sometimes for designing artworks, banners and billboards, and now i’m using Photopshop to design user interfaces for mobile applications. I have never used any other tool and I don’t think I will ever use any other tool in my life. Thanks

    Actual Fact: I have been using this tool for the past 8 years and i’m the craziest fan & lover of Photoshop versions. Moreover i started loving this tool very much once after i won the multimedia contest conducted by “The Hindu” one of the daily edition news paper in india.

    Though there are several open source image editing tools available in the market; i feel and most of the designers across the globe tend to use Photoshop tool both personally and officially.

    I’m looking forward to learn more about Photoshop world and seeing what comes new in next versions!

It is being able to put that on visual display in its best format and knowing it looks fantastic and other people can share that sense of delight. It is a constant learning environment that I love to dwell in and visit for hours, playing, at my age, Yes! I will never get enough of it!

  • By Randy Welsh - 10:47 PM on April 20, 2011  

    What is Photoshop to me. It’s been a long road to the designer I want to be. It is shocking to me when I think back to when I first got introduced to
    Photoshop 7. Sure it wasn’t that long ago. After all I’m only 23 now.

    It was in a mentor-ship program with the Boys and Girls Club. I was so amazed when I was shown how Photoshop could turn my artwork into anything I
    wanted it to. The world was at my fingertips, anything was possible.

    From that time to know I have gone from learning that maybe everything isn’t possible. However, with photoshop by my side. I feel it has grown on me.
    At times when I think back to alll the different things in my life I’ve done, I almost feel as if Photoshop itself has grown.

    But enough of the emotional side to what Photoshop means to me. I just feel that it is a program which has helped me out in the most tightest projects,
    from using it to slice up websites. Correcting the levels and colour balance for friends and family for fun. Or doing a full blown photoshop makeover.
    I don’t think my memories would feel right if Photoshop had not existed.

    As up to date now. With photoshop being my secret weapon in the design and work world. I am a freelancer and web programmer. Making a good imcome. Creatng stuff
    that has my mind and ideas put into them. Freedom to feel like an artist. Most of all, the memories.

    Thanks Adobe. Life’s good.

    I could go on, but I just wanted to make sure I took some time out to mention that to you.

    I am a design student and have always been an artist, and photoshop is where I just let it all out. Photoshop filters all of my most raw emotions and produces my best works just the way I want them to be.

    It’s pure creation, and there is nothing quite like it.

    I would be so lost without Photoshop. It’s a magical program with seemingly endless possibilities. If I want to retouch a photo or create a wallpaper from scratch, Photoshop has always been there for me. I still only have Photoshop CS4 at home. But at work I’ve been using Photoshop CS5 there for awhile now and I so love it and want it. My favorite new feature of Photoshop CS5 is the Edit>Fill>Content-Aware. It is truly amazing.

  • By Hector Maxwell - 11:24 PM on April 20, 2011

  • By Max - 11:39 PM on April 20, 2011  

    How would you define its mission?
    I think the mission of Photoshop, is to make the world look more beautiful, to expand the fantasy of very much people. It isnt just a Photo Manipulation Program anymore, you can do almost everything with it. I really like Photoshop Express on the iPhone, and I use it everyday because i shoot some pictures, but they arent perfect to me, so i open Photoshop Mobile and edit them.
    What is its purpose in your life?
    Im hobby photograph, and I use Photoshop so that my pictures wake up peoples senses. I got pretty much positive Feedback, so I think Im pretty successful.
    How do you use it?
    See above.

    What is Photoshop to you?
    Metaphorically, photoshop is my visual laboratory. The laboratory where I conduct the greatest experiments, find cures & solutions to so many design problems, and by where my creativity is only limited by time itself .
    How would you define its mission?
    To keep creativity constantly evolving.
    What is its purpose in your life? 
    To translate my messages, thoughts, interpretations and ideas into a visual language that is understood by all
    How do you use it?
    I use it like it was the one thing that could save humanity whilst in our darkest hour.

    A benchmark of excellence in software design and engineering, the constant innovations available in Photoshop have kept me reinventing myself for years. Moving from simple drawings and an excessive use of the “Plastic Wrap” filter, to graphic and text design, to painting, and now to my current passion and entrepreneurial adventure in photography, Photoshop has grown with me. It was once that fun toy, and is now that awesome, life changing tool that keeps surprising me every day.

    Photoshop – putting captions on cats since 1995 😀

  • By Pat - 12:23 AM on April 21, 2011  

    While the camera captures the memory, immortalising it forever, that image untouched will never show it’s full potential. It is simply a digital replication of reality.

    By taking that replication into Photoshop, however, you can bring in a whole new level of feeling. You can breathe a whole new, organic life into such a robotic frame. Giving it vibrance, warmth, and humanity, or even draining the happiness, peeling away the façade and revealing emotion which can not be captured by a computer alone.

    So Photoshop is a way of not just being able to share my memories with others, but my feelings too. It allows me to take a memory shared by many, and give it an emotion felt by one. The ultimate form of personal expression, made so simple by a powerful program.

The tools continue to improve and you can tell that it is made by a group of people who love what they do and know how to make a quality product. It sets the standard for what to expect from an extremely powerful and user friendly graphics program and I look forward to seeing what the people at Adobe will produce with it in the future versions to come.

    First it was a toy for me: I was playing with it without knowing all the possibility of it.
    Then it became a wonderful tool: I’m using it for photography, webdesign and special FX.
    As it perfectly combines with Premiere Pro and After Effects, the possibility seems endless, the only limitation is my imagination!

    I haven’t seen any software till date that’s so flexible and easy to use, iam an artist the first software i look for in any machine (if iam doing design) is The Photoshop. As the time goes the versions become so much productive and save huge ton of time. I’ve been using photoshop, every since i came to the design field ’98. I wish i own one copy of cs5, i can’t afford to buy the new version, i’ve been using trial version of cs5 and maybe someday i’ll buy. With my whole heart i love PS.

  • By Raine - 1:28 AM on April 21, 2011  

    I would like to quote Steve Jobs first.

    “In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains of the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.” – Steve Jobs

    To me Photoshop is the way to achieve design. It allows me to create something spectacular. Designing is one of the few things I am passionate about. And if there’s something to help me in my favourite passion, webdesigning, it’s Photoshop.

    Best regards and congatulations for hitting 2 000 000 mark.

    Photoshop to me was the beginning of a new era and a new career. When I saw a computer for the first time in my life, it was just opening Photoshop. My mind was blown. So when I got a computer of my own, the first thing I did was learning to use Photoshop. I didn’t get out of the house for two weeks and I read the help file a hundred times. I am an Art Director now and my most important tool is Photoshop.

And it has been for over 10 years.

Photoshop just changed my life, it allowed me express myself the way i want it, without the need of formal education. Its intuitive and easy interface is just a joy to use, and understand. No matter what software will come out, how advanced it will be, tough i use many other programs too, photoshop will always have a special place in my heart…

    For me Photoshop is a way of showing my emotions when I design beautiful sceneries. Photoshop is also a way of bringing photographs to life by editing them.

I think art would not be as developed as it is now without this magical program which lets people create stupendous masterpieces.

    Photoshop for me is a real alternative for traditional drawing and photo montage. Since I’ve used it, I personally enjoyed all of its features to express myself into my works. Before I did use it, it was difficult to give my draws life and when I started using it, I started to be interested for exploiting its capabilities.
    I’m still new to the graphic design and webdesign business, but Photoshop really helps me showing off what I’m capable of. So thank you for your hard work as for making this amazing software

  • By Josh - 2:54 AM on April 21, 2011

    Firstly I trated designing like a hobby, in short time it became my way of a life. Thanks to this, though I WORK as a designer, when I open a Photoshop, I feel happy and I’m looking forward next project. As I’m not satisfied with what I see in our world, with such a great tool I can make world look better. Or at least try.

    Concluding – Photoshop is just like a window to a different world.

  • By Jeremy Hixon - 3:36 AM on April 21, 2011  

    I discovered long ago that I am far better with numbers than colors. I, thus, make a much better developer than designer. Photoshop is a design tool that I understand and have become comfortable with over the years. It provides a bridge between what the designer creates and the images I need to make a design a real, live website or application.

  • By Joey - 4:26 AM on April 21, 2011  

    Photoshop Has definitely played a defining role in my life. When I was 14 I was first introduced to photoshop in my high school. I’d heard a little bit about it and one day I just decided to click on it during a free block. I haven’t ever looked back. I continued to use photoshop and take classes which included it in their curriculum. At the age of 15 and a half I got a graphic design job in which I used Photoshop exclusively.
    Today I have taken on digital painting and Illustration, all done within photoshop.

    I think that the purpose of photoshop is not only to provide a priceless application which allows the creation of so many masterpieces, along so many topics (photomanipulation, digital painting, etc.), but it also aims to improve the user experience. It’s not an application built for designers, or photographers, it’s an app designed for YOU.

    I would also have to say that Photoshop changes lives. It allows all of its users to communicate visually to each other and the world. Visual communication is the greatest kind in the world, it speaks every language, and photoshop is tool which provides this and so much more.

    Photoshop is my favorite way to express myself, turning real pictures in images of my imagination, or creating them from a white canvas.
    I feel everything is possible with photoshop.
    It’s also my favorite toy, and I would like it to become my way of life.

  • By Corien - 4:47 AM on April 21, 2011  

    Photoshop means there are a lot of people asking me to do things for them, which I couldn’t do at all, or as good, or as fast, without Photoshop.
    My boss and dad are very happy with my background removing and product enhancing skills – thankfully most products have a lot of straight lines, Quickmask is invaluable for the rest.
    My sister and friends know where to find me for photo retouching of wrinkles, blemishes, red eyes and the occasional removal of ex boyfriends.
    And if there’s time left in a day it’s Photoshop for me – CS5 allows me to draw and paint digitally with the added advantage of an undo button and zero oil paint drying time.

  • By Matej Krpan - 4:48 AM on April 21, 2011  

    Wow,I’ve never thought I’ll be asked this question.Straight from my mind,the answer is that Photoshop is something beautiful,something extraordinary,a portal between real world and the universe of imagination,a tool that can make anything possible.For me,there isn’t anything more beatiful than a work of art that induces synesthetic impression;Photoshop makes that possible.

    For me Photoshop goes beyond it`s limits. With this tool (well you can`t describe it as a tool, it`s a part of you when you edit images) you obtain perfection beyond imagination. Photoshop can achive much much things, it doesn`t have only one purpose, it has no limits. I use Photoshop to retouch images, mainly and some photo manipulations.

  • By Dennis Stevenson - 5:07 AM on April 21, 2011  

    Using Photoshop only since CS3 has made such an impression on me, not only as a premier graphic suite but with the entire Adobe suite. Photoshop stands head and shoulders above it’s nearest competitor and acts as a benchmark for any future graphic development tools.

    Photoshop is an alternate reality, an extension of the imagination, allowing me to project my vision into an image on a screen, turning that vision into a reality. It is a portal that connects the real world to that world created by your perceptions. It is not simply a tool; it is a collection of tools and technique that allows the artist to express himself through the power of visual art, and the greatest thing about it is that there is usually more than one route to achieve the effect I desire. It is a swiss army knife of artistry, A medium of art, and a way of life.

    In short, Photoshop builds the bridge between vision and reality. How you create that bridge is up to you.
