Pic Of The Day: The Very First Photoshopped Image Ever

Today's 'Pic of the Day' is an oldie, but one that will remain somewhat iconic for a number of reasons. 

This idyllic beach scene isn't everything that it seems and is in fact the world’s first Photoshopped image ever.

Aptly titled 'Jennifer in Paradise', the image of the topless woman on a beach was taken by Photoshop creator John Knoll in 1987.

John, who was holidaying on the island of Bora Bora with his then-girlfriend Jennifer, would use the picture heavily later in his career.

While developing the tools of manipulation, Knoll sampled the software's capabilities on photographs.

Knoll completed several demonstrations and included the image in copies of the software that he distributed to companies, thus making it the very first “shopped” photograph ever.
