A World Without Photoshop? Nooooo!

Most people have occasionally stopped to wonder what life was like before computers, but if you use Photoshop, you understand the true power and simplicity that computers bring to every day life.

Now we get to see for real what a world without Photoshop would be like, thanks to the cryptically named aworldwithoutphotoshop.com.

A team of designers hurry to create a magazine cover in a mere eight hours, and are stumped at the notion of having to add lens flare and drop shadow.

As someone who remembers the old days of pasting up hand-cropped artwork using spray mount, this brings back personal demons I had long since hoped to have banished.

A little fun for a Sunday afternoon for you Photoshoppers!

Can you imagine a world without electricity or automobiles or planes…? Sure, before electricity there was fire and everyone was happy, before autos there were horses and before planes there were mounted pterodactyls or something like that… Photoshop, just like any other thing that progress gives us, simply makes our lifes easier…
