Happy birthday, Photoshop and Lightroom
Is today, February 19th, "The Most Important Date In Digital Imaging History"? That’s the case Jeff Schewe makes on Photoshop News. On this date in 1990, the first version of Photoshop shipped to the world; exactly five years ago we saw the debut of Photoshop’s Camera Raw plug-in; and one year ago today, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.0 made its official bow. Jeff posts all kinds of good info on the site, and in a sidebar he asks "Where were you on 2-19-1990?" (I thank goodness that no digital cams were on hand there to capture my hairdo.) For a bit more info and color, see Lightroom PM Tom Hogarty’s post on the occasion.
