@SuperMew98: Quite right. At the time of this release, this was not an Abobe product. It was up for grabs by any major distributor.

Its name is also written "PhotoShop" not "Photoshop" as it became under Adobe. So thanks. Good spotting.

This might be just PhotoShop. I did a ⌘F in the manual and looked for "Adobe" but found nothing.

This is really a historical product.
The question is... what would happen if Thomas Knoll would sell this program to Apple directly, instead of selling it to Adobe?

Found it while digging through in .sit.bin format. It was in the Mac Graphics -- Mac Painting category, along with another (corrupt) archive in .zip format. I simply extracted it and put it on an empty 800k disk image.

haha, wow, nice. That's a great find and IMO an important "historical" thing to archive. I actually have a Photoshop beta CD as well, for a newer version, somewhere around version 3-4 (I forget offhand). Actual CD. Perhaps at some point I will make a disk image and scan the front of the CD. I would have to do some backtracking as to how it came to me (I forget) so I don't get anyone in trouble Tongue
