New features[edit | edit source]

Photoshop 3.0 was the first version to introduce layers, considered to be one of its most important new features, though Fauve Matisse had already debuted the concept a year earlier.[2][3]

Version 3.0 also introduced tabbed palettes, which helped to conserve workspace real estate. This would later become a factor in Adobe's lawsuit against Macromedia for its use of tabbed palettes in Macromedia Flash.[4]
