(we didn't find any specific dates) Short/ Outlined Biography Thomas Knoll created the very first Adobe Photoshop with his brother John Knoll in the year of 1988. But their very first creation was Image Pro. Thomas Knoll received his BS (Bachelor of Science) & PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) at the University of Michigan. Family Daughter Son Father Glen Knoll Brother John A. Knoll Hannah Knoll Andrew Knoll Thomas Knoll was a PHD student studying Engineering at the University of Michigan. His brother
was working at Industrial Light and Magic. Thomas Knoll wrote a subroutine for a program to translate monochrome images on his monitor to gray scale. The successful subroutine led Knoll to create more and very soon he had a number of processes for achieving photographic effects on digital images. After his brother John saw what Thomas was doing, he recommended that Thomas turn what he was doing into a full-featured image editor. The combination of Thomas’ programming abilities with John’s pragmatic design background led to a collaboration between the two brothers
to develop more processes and improve on the initial application. Even though the process led to interruption in Thomas’ thesis work, the brothers released “Image Pro” in 1988. John suggested that they begin to sell Image Pro as an application. Within six months, the brothers had a partnership with a company that manufactured scanners, Barneyscan.They purchased 200 copies of the program to ship with their scanners. They called on Supermac and Aldus, but were turned away at both, a move that Aldus would come to seriously regret. Shortly after, the Knoll brothers struck gold when they won over Adobe management with their product, and formed a licensing partnership with Adobe that was to launch their software and Adobe into the stratosphere.
In February of 1990, Adobe 1.0 was released. Citations Created & Researched By:
