Photoshop has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1990. What started out as a basic image editor has grown into what can only be summarized as a powerhouse for anything and everything related to manipulating images.

Over the years, features have been added little by little, further propelling Adobe’s software into the forefront of the industry. At this year’s Adobe MAX conference, Adobe made sure to pay tribute to Photoshop by creating an entire collection of computers and software editions new and old for attendees to look back on and play with.

If you didn’t attend Adobe MAX, don’t worry, Adobe has shared a minute-long video of the exhibition, which shows off some of the very first Photoshop versions and the computers that so prominently defined the workflow, such as Apple’s iconic and colorful iMac.

Be prepared to whip out your N64 and Tang, because the entire video is a shot of nineties nostalgia.
