Touch Takes Hold
Digital Photography was alive and well in the mid-2000s. The desktop DSLR workflow dominated the professional and semi-professional photography world, as new digital cameras were introduced and editing software was upgraded. But, the world really belonged to the technical and/or professional user familiar with all the advanced technology and capabilities of that time. The digital photography workflow was dominant on the desktop, aided by the popularity of desktop publishing. Soon, the term “Photoshopping” and the verb “Photoshopped” became a standard way to explain an image that was digitally manipulated, altered or edited in and extreme way. Adobe Photoshop, along with all the latest digital scanners and DSLR cameras reigned supreme in this world. Of course, it was a world largely geared for the economically elite.
