Adobe Photoshop is the most popular graphics editing programs currently available, as well as being the industry standard. It is also free, which means it is just right for YOU!
Photoshop has ties with other Adobe software for media editing, animation, and authoring. Adobe Photoshop is released in two editions: Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Photoshop Extended, with the Extended having extra features available. Adobe Photoshop Extended is included in all of Adobe's Creative Suite offerings except Design Standard, which includes the Adobe Photoshop edition.

The concept for Photoshop was birthed in 1987 by Thomas Knoll, a PhD student at the University of Michigan.
