I’ve been in heaven ever since. :-)

We had recently just finished up Adobe Type Manager for the Macintosh. I remember seeing BarneyScan in the halls, asking what it was about.

As for 2007, why, working on Photoshop CS3.

We spent way too much time on a Mac II (or was it a Mac IIx that year?) scanning everything we could find and doing the most absurd things we could think of to them, not all of which were legal (I was underage at the time). For myself with my own images the question was often “What I can do that’s beautiful, new and unique?” which started me down a long road…

I just glanced at my schedule and on 2-19-2007 I was on location in a photography studio training a photographer on Lightroom as it turns out.

Photoshop was not on the radar (although I was working on Radar at the time)!

Feb 19, 2007, NAPP officially started supporting Lightroom question on the member Help Desk and I happily began answering them. :-)

I’m thinking one Year ago, with Lightroom! PS came later for me! :)

WE spent a long 24 hours helping new LR enthusiasts with the first blush/rush of this bright growing Application!

I distinctly remember getting our first copies of Photoshop and thinking this is going to change everything… We were already struggling with the concept of bringing “digital imaging” into our curriculum. And if I remember correctly, we had some of Canon’s first “still video” cameras, the forefather’s of today’s digital cameras. Also remember fighting for budget (Feb. is budget season) to get our first computer lab set up in the photo school.

2007… Still at RIT, now directing operations for College of Imaging Arts & Sciences (and still fighting for budget!). Looking back at my calendar, the 19th was a quiet day and we’d had Lightroom installed in some of our labs (now up to over 900 workstations) since the public beta launch. We couldn’t make the switch to V1 until a couple of weeks later when school was on break.

In the intervening years, photographic education has been transformed by the shift to digital. By the end of this school year, we’ll only have ~30 darkrooms left in active service, down from over 190 back in the day when Jeff was roaming our halls… In those days we used to mix over 35,000 gallons of chemistry per year! Now we probably use that many ink cartridges in a year… ;-)
