The Lords of Photoshop

June 24, 2006 by

Holy mother of Thor! That’s me pictured with Thomas Knoll (left) and Zalman Stern (right) whom I had the pleasure of getting to know while teaching at the PhotoshopSoup2Nuts Conference in Michigan. When Photoshop loads, Thomas’ name is listed first and there’s a reason for it! He invented the darn thing.

Zalman, on the other hand, is the Lord of Camera Raw, and surprisingly -- especially for a genius engineer/programmer -- an extremely charming man and conversationalist. Thomas, on the other hand, didn’t talk very much but he did smile and agree shyly to this picture when I asked, and that pleased me greatly :)
