There's nothing as ubiquitous or as well known in the creative industry as Adobe's Photoshop. Launched 25 years ago today, the photo editing app has continued to evolve within an industry that's constantly looking for that next big thing. It's tough for software devs to walk the fine line between changing with the times and keeping the core foundation of what makes their software special. Achieving this is quite an accomplishment in itself. There's just nothing quite like Photoshop. From film production to game and website design, the app is loved by millions of artists for its versatility and usability.
To celebrate its anniversary, Adobe has created an unique ad campaign video entitled Dream On (with the Aerosmith song). The video is slated to air at the Academy Awards this weekend and features some recent films that have used the app within their productions such as Gone Girl, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Shrek, and Avatar.
