Today in Apple history: Photoshop debuts as a Mac exclusive:

February 19, 1990: Adobe ships the first commercial version of its soon-to-be-iconic Photoshop software.
The Mac exclusive debuts for Mac System 6.0.3. Priced at $895, it quickly becomes the standard graphics editing tool for graphics professionals, whether they’re working in advertising agencies, news organizations or, frankly, anywhere else where image editing is used.
That price would be $1,766.52 in today's money.

I used Photoshop 1.07.
The Knoll brothers were consulting with both photographers and printers to add features or to make them better.
For a long time Adobe’s clients were 50% US users, and 50% the rest of the world.
(do your math and think about it if you wish : )
The old days were good, but Photoshop got much better after the introduction and tweaking of layers and blending modes.
