Where it all started for me back in 1995 when my Photography tutor introduced me to Photoshop. At the time Photography was my thing, but for me it fully analog back then, I never seen a Mac or a PC. A year later I was studying Interactive Multimedia Communications, and learning to code.
Software comes and goes, it scary how many coding languages and IDE's I have used over the last 25 years, but every workday I still use Photoshop. The aren't many other creative apps that have that level of longevity.
