"When I was a kid, I would look at airbrush artists and typography," White explains. "I would try to do it with my colouring pencils – I never understood how magazines were put together until I was introduced to Photoshop back in 1995."

The video is part of a larger tribute the team at Lynda.com put together for Photoshop's anniversary – you can see the rest here. In the meantime, let us know your favourite Photoshop memories and projects. We'd love to see some of your creations in the comments box!
