When I think of names such as Matt Kloskowski and Jared Platt I think of Photoshop gurus who will be able to walk me through anything the software has to offer, in their sleep.

While that might be true for the latest versions of Adobe software, watch what happens when Photoshop hall of famers and educators are asked to use Photoshop 1.0. Not even Photoshop CS 1, just 1.

Other than giving you a deeper sense of appreciation for just how awesome software is these days, this video will give you a few good laughs.

So what will happen when Doomsday arrives and all the latest versions of Photoshop are destroyed?

In honor of Photoshop’s 25th anniversary, the team at CreativeLive asked a few of their top instructors to perform simple tasks in Adobe’s first version of today’s industry-standard software.

While the basic layout of the user interface is rather similar to the latest version, Photoshop 1.0 is lacking several features that are considered very basic nowadays.

Dave Cross, Jared Platt, Ben Willmore, Chris Orwig, Julieanne Kost, Aaron Nace, Tim Grey, Matt Kloskowski, and Jason Hoppe all put their skills to the test and the results are pretty amusing.

Watch their reactions as they fumble around the ancient software and realize that they do not have layers, can redo/undo just one step in either direction and have no automatic live preview (or no preview at all).

“We’ve come a long way”, Platt summarizes, while Kost asks if she may “please return ot the creative cloud now?”
