This is a blast from the past but suprisingly still little known. We at Amnesia regard it as easter egg folklore. Those crazy developers at Adobe love their eastereggs but this was a one of the best.

Photoshop 5 – While holding down Ctrl+Alt+Shift, click on Help, About Photoshop
(Feeling to lazy to reinstall? We put a copy of the image here for you).
Once you see the Strange Cargo Screen, take a screen grab and copy it back into Photoshop. Turn off all the channels except for BLUE (see below):
Voila – now can you see the developers face in the sea below???
Before anyone asks if this is genuine. Yes it is.
