Back in the year 1987 Thomas Knoll wrote a program which would enable his Apple Mac Plus which had a 1 bit black and white display to show gray scale images using a process called dithering. He named his program Display and soon it had the attention of his brother John Knoll an ILM employee and he suggested him to turn it into a full-fledged digital image editing software. And thus Thomas took a 6 month break from his PhD study and came up with the first and very rudimentary version of what today we call Photoshop.
