Adobe Photoshop is an app with a laser eye that only appears in Animator vs. Animation II.
Adobe Photoshop is a raster image-editing software app developed by Adobe Systems, released as one of the very first apps along with Illustrator, Premiere Pro and After Effects. Since the animating software seen in the video is still Flash 8, it's quite clear Alan Becker (noogai3) bought the two separately.
In real life, Alan uses it to edit pictures, create digital paintings and even animate on it. there are three tutorial videos on Photoshop in one of Alan Becker's channels, AlanBeckerTutorials.
RoleIn Animator vs Animation 2, it was hit by the ball of Game Maker. Its eye flames up in rage, and turns red as it shoots its laser at The Chosen One. As a counter attack, The Chosen One also uses a laser, in which he forces aggressively back at Adobe Photoshop, ultimately, leading in its defeat. In The Rediscovery, Adobe Photoshop is seen at the taskbar, but due to the fact that Photoshop has a new icon (Photoshop CC's icon is just a blue box with "Ps" on it), it couldn't attack anymore.
Powers/AbilitiesAdobe Photoshop can shoot lasers from its eye since it's an old icon.
- When the Chosen One reaches the start menu, the defeated Adobe Photoshop icon appears in recent programs. It is in the same state as the one on the desktop.
- Adobe Photoshop only appeared in Animator vs. Animation 2 as 7.0 but it was also upgraded to Adobe Photoshop CS4 along with Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, etc., then finally Adobe Photoshop CC in the first AVM short.
- The text is called Adobe Photoshop 7.0 which does not match the icon of the version (4.0).
- Photoshop is one of the four icons to have ever been hit by a stick figure's powers.
