Your ability to open and read WIkipedia is commendable, but I strongly
suggest that you read the full history that I linked to :)
Photographers weren't the reason to create Photoshop. It came next.

Now, as for GIMP, we did work with professional photographers and we
are going to work with them in the future.

I understand that you are unwilling to read whatever links I throw at
you, but maybe this time it's going to work? Here are raw evaluation
notes from 2006 usability study:

Very well :) I just hope we are not having a "who started doing
computer graphics earlier" contest 'round here. Not that I didn't have
fond memories of using a light pen around 1986 :)
