Russell Brown’s History of Photoshop

Who knew that Adobe got its start in a hut on Tatooine?

This crazy Star Wars-inspired QuickTime movie recently showed up on one of the Yahoo! user groups. It’s the “History of Photoshop” movie presented by none other than Adobe Senior Creative Director Russell Brown.

If you love Photoshop, you’ll like this parody. If you love Star Wars too, you won’t be able to get enough! I thought it was great. Russell Brown is in my opinion sometimes a bit too zany in his seminars and classes, but I get a kick out of his movies.

Here’s some screenshots:
