John Knoll is a visual effects supervisor who co-created Adobe Photoshop.
While John was a young employee at Industrial Light & Magic in 1988, his brother Thomas Knoll has created a simple program Display 0.07 to show simulated grayscale graphics on a Macintosh Plus computer. John convinced Thomas to to turn Display into a full image editing application. John then met with executives at Barneyscan, Apple Computer, and finally Adobe Systems, to help close a distribution deal that would eventually lead to Adobe Photoshop 1.0. During development, he also created plug-ins for Photoshop.
