We love Photography.

and the passion we care about images is influenced by traditional camera work and darkroom editing. In the early 90’s images have been the key-factor for modern computing and our Seniors started their career back then. Desktop Publishing (DTP) was coming with Drum-Scanners by Linotype Hell, Scitex & Dainippon Screen, Apple Macintosh Quadra, Adobe Photoshop, Aldus PageMaker & Freehand been “expensive” and therefore very exclusive tools. A generation earlier Quantel Paintbox or Silicon Graphics Industries editing systems been UNIX based and investments been way above. A regular Discreet Inferno system was about 450,000 USD when it was introduced. Progress of Information Technology changed a lot and made it affordable to the public. Those DTP systems been a huge price drop for digital image editing and Adobe Photoshop by John Knoll became quick something like a icon & standard.

It took a while for the audience to figure out what this was changing for them, and they started to raising doubts about image credibility. That’s one of the reasons, why we are #NOPS and detailed information about that, you can read in our Philosophy.

We love Open Imaging.

In 2011, still working on Adobe products, we’ve did some research about the progress of Open-Source Applications and made several unexpected Discoveries. Read more in our reports on Software and how Apple took advantage of FOSS to become Top of the markets. We made the decision to do it, like Apple once suggested, and started to think different. There are many, who inspired us to do so, and we started to put some of them in a listing of important Personalities for us, and You. In the report about Open Imaging, you can read how we got rid of Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Indesign… and sent their licenses to def/null.

We love Quality Images.

Nowadays everybody is taking Pictures with (smart) Telephones former known as Personal Digital Assistants (PDA). While even the first of them, known as Apple Newton, supported written words on the display, current PDA’s come with build in wireless data transfer and cameras. Steve Jobs was the one who stopped Larry Tesler when Steve rejoined the company. You might agree, that Cam & Wifi are the reasons for publishing on Instagram, flickr, 500px… is so popular. Larry Tesler did fundamental work for ATG and so for the latest devices. They produce RAW data now by their build in image sensors and not just the fact — also the quality is actually pretty stunning! Not that you can add a serious lens onto, but…

For a Snapshot at High Noon, it’s like the invention of the Colt Revolver. You may not have the range, but with a good belt you can take it everywhere.

We appreciate the liberty of those devices too, even when results been of lower quality for a long time compared to DSLR technology, but…

Some already say things like: “There is no need for…”  and they like to continue with things like those old quality standards SWOP, Euroskala and so on. Those might think their skills are working well for them with low cost, but when it comes to color management, under color reduction, over printing or skeleton black… it’s time to face the truth. Knowledge makes a difference, not faith nor ignorance.
