This is What Photoshop Was Like in 1988
Think your Photoshop is slow? Check out what it was like to use Adobe Photoshop version 0.63 Beta. Here’s a humorous 13-minute video (warning: there’s strong language) in which Krazy Ken of Computer Clan tries editing some photos inside the Photoshop that existed back in October 1988.
Photoshop 0.63, which had the codename Bond, was the second version of Photoshop that was released after version 0.07 in January 1988. These first two versions were never commercially distributed — that wouldn’t happen until the third iteration, version 0.87, in March 1989. v0.87 was bundled with a scanner made by the company Barneyscan, and it was distributed as Barneyscan XP.
