A Little Bit of History Related to Photoshop
Owing to the fact that showing grayscale images on monochrome displays was not possible at the time, a man named Thomas Knoll, who was a student at the University of Michigan, developed a simple application that could do this, and named this application Display. Later on, Thomas’ brother John got involved with this interesting project and urged Thomas to develop the application further, so Photoshop was created from the original Display. At first they used to sell Photoshop alongside Barneyscan scanners, but they later convinced Adobe to purchase the license for the distribution of the application in 1988.
