In Short

Adobe Photoshop was first created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll, and since its creation its become the go-to photo editor in the industry. What began as a product, quickly became a verb, as people started referring to editing and making changes as photoshopping something, whether they were using the program or now.

In 2013, Adobe introduced the Creative Suite branding which brought the app to even more users. Historically, it was only bundled with all the other Adobe software, making it quite expensive, and hard to get started with.

From making a quick edits to layering photos and making a complete transformation, Photoshop can handle a variety of tasks. Photoshop supports tons of graphic file formats, including its own PSD and PSB file formats. Whether you're a photographer, illustrator, graphic designer or someone who wants to just poke around, Photoshop can handle all of your needs.
