What they didn’t say

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work.”

Photoshop at 25

Adobe Photoshop was created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll, and then ultimately launched in February of 1990.

Its been a long and quite successful journey since then and this is the collaboration video that Adobe created for their 25th year anniversary, to celebrate the tool that has helped shape creativity, artists from all over the world contributed their most amazing dreams—and their working files with layers. This day Adobe is the leader in industry grade, with the entire world pinning one’s hope on this software. A miracle machine to create designs, prints, web and everything else.

Dream On!
