Photoshop 1.0

Could you imagine trying to create anything without layers, live preview, only one undo, and 1/4 of the tools we have today? But really are you kidding me, only ONE undo?

A group of art professionals decided to test themselves by attempting to create a Photoshop 1.0 tutorial. Though it is really quite fun to watch this frustration with the dated program it brings light to the fact that this is what designers had to work with 25 years ago. It is crazy to think of how much Photoshop has changed and developed since then. Still, designers managed to create some amazing designs, ads, and logos from it. I feel spoiled with todays Photoshop but I could not imagine spending also 3o minutes creating a drop shadow!
