What is Adobe?

The company behind Photoshop.

By

Adobe is an American software company.

Officially known as Adobe Systems, the company is known for its multimedia and creativity software products. Popular products include Photoshop, Acrobat Reader, and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Headquartered in San Jose, California, the company was founded in 1982 by John Warnock and Charles Geschke. The name Adobe comes from Adobe Creek in California, which ran behind the houses of the company’s founders.

One of Adobe’s first products was digital fonts, with the company entering the consumer software market in the 1980s. Adobe Illustrator was the company’s first consumer product, which was a vector-based drawing program for Mac.
