Welcome to the PSE.NET newsletter for 24th of February.

The last few days I have been in San Jose talking to the Photoshop Elements, Lightroom and Photoshop development teams about current and future features in these great products. It is hard to believe, given the range of features already in these products, but there are still plenty of amazing ideas that these folks are working on for future releases. So stay tuned!

You may have heard that last week also marked the 20th anniversary of Photoshop and, given that Elements owes its heritage to this older sibling, it is worth having a look at some of the videos, blog entries and websites marking this occassion.

For instance checkout this episode of the newly created Photoshop 20th Aniversary chanel. In this documentary, the founders of Adobe Photoshop - John Knoll, Thomas Knoll, Russell Brown, and Steve Guttman - tell the story of how an amazing coincidence of circumstances, that came together at just the right time 20 years ago, spawned a cultural paradigm shift unparalleled in our lifetime.  

It is amazing how far we have come in such a short period of time. Have a great week and good luck with your imaging!
