“I swear, drop shadows used to be *cool*!” I used to tell people. “That was back when only barrel-chested, meat-eating heroes could wade through all the steps—before Photoshop made them easy & really cheapened the coin.”
I think of that watching this charming little clip from CreativeLive. As PetaPixel writes,
They asked 8 well-known Photoshop experts — Dave Cross, Jared Platt, Ben Willmore, Chris Orwig, Julieanne Kost, Aaron Nace, Tim Grey, Matt Kloskowski, and Jason Hoppe — to try their hand at version 1.0.
Oh, and the single-undo thing? That persisted for the first eight-plus years of Photoshop’s existence!
