One holiday snap has been manipulated thousands of times on thousands of computers. Gordon Comstock on how a woman on a beach in Bora Bora taught the world to tinker with pictures
The program that revolutionized photography all began with a rather innocent image. Read about a trip to Bora Bora and the beginning of Photoshop.
"It hardly looks like an image that shook the world. But this photograph, taken in 1987 by John Knoll, could be as central to the modern visual vernacular as Eadweard Muybridge’s shots of galloping horses or the first use of perspective."

WE ARE CURATING A NET SHOWCASE FOR oranbeg - HOPE TO SEE YOUR WORK IN THE SUBMISSIONS!
Prompt: Your gastrointestinal tract is 9 meters long. You eat: for the next 24 to 72 hours each mouthful will be ground down, broken apart, denatured, processed and, finally, absorbed - or excreted. Nearly a ton a year.
87% of us (in America) have some kind of life online. Nearly 2000 hours a year. We communicate using text, video, and images: with each other, with organizations, and with technology itself. Every day we eat, for sustenance, for pleasure, or for social interaction. We consume this digital stuff for the same reasons, every day, and at an accelerating pace.
Does this make you feel invigorated? Or bloated?
