Adobe Photoshop is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and what better way to show how far the program has come than to go back to where it started? Creative education site Creative Live recently put out this film showing top Photoshop pros opening up the first version of the image editing software.

The expressions on the artists' faces are priceless as they first launch the program, looking almost as if they're going to wet themselves laughing over how rudimentary it used to be. They crack up as they make errors left and right - one photographer generates so many beeping noises he observes that the program is also great for making electronic music.

After all the frustration and laughter, one artist sums the experience up perfectly: "May I please return to the creative cloud, now?" she asks.
