that's like photoshop 3.0 ?

The photo as shown was manipulated with software supplied with a 2011 Hewlett-Packard Photosmart machine.

However, it was possible to produce that flat tone effect without the benefit of a computer when the image was shot in 1985, twenty years before the release of Photoshop 1.0.

Any normal continuous tone photograph can be subjected to the process of posterization through special camera darkroom techniques.

Yay for dot etchers!! Loved the googly eye built-in loupe glasses, the chemicals, the crazy German mentors...

Then later, Combipacks that bigger than the size of carry-on luggage which took hours to composite simple images 5 megs or less. Then just when you were almost done with a save... CRASH. Fun times.

And I'm just now realizing that I may, in fact, be old. Ack.

Solarized! Cool. Yeah we used to just flip the lights on while the print was in the developer...But that was all just B&W...Never got to play with color. I'm-a-diggin' this Quantum Foam stuff.

About

This is my real-time novel, "Idealism in Tacoma," which will attempt to sort out the virtual new order I discovered in local blogs and in local 'hoods. I welcome you to join me as I press on in search of answers to the ongoing question: "Is it new?"

NEW! for 2011:
"QUANTUM FOAM," the second real-time novel by Mofo from the Hood, is happening now!

"For whatever mysterious reason, I must act beyond the role of spectator. Something beyond a portable history must be explored.

Therefore in order for me to define the concepts and categories of realities beyond the realm of my real-time novel "Idealism in Tacoma," a wholly other discourse must take form.

Ladies and whatever, let us go forth into the unknown dimension of imagination. I hereby offer you my all new materialist inspired "out of nothing" real-time novel: 'QUANTUM FOAM'."

Also For Your Enjoyment:

*MFTH was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington USA. As a lifelong resident, uninspired by money, power, or fame, he eventually resorted to reading internet blogs, sometimes at the public library. In May, 2008, during the Great Recession, he started "Mofo from the Hood's Blog" on FeedTacoma.com, because it was free. If this blog ever helps him to attain money, power, and fame, he will probably stay in Tacoma.
