The Soviets were always pioneers in this field.

hmmm, I wonder why...

Because state sponsorship leads to great scientific acheivment a lot of the time? What?

Bullshit. Crossfield and Hell scanners workstations did that in the late 70s and early 80s until ImagePro took over. Then it was PhotoShop.

Seriously people?

The Amiga was built by some stoned dudes in a suburban garage, and it was on the market by 1985, the same year as Deluxe Paint debuted. Digital scanners of various types and prices predate this.

And uh don't throw stones. Some of NASA's photography is dubious, and occasionally outright impossible.

Cut NASA some slack, someone had to edit in those nuclear powered space lasers for America and take out the alien spacecraft that mug for cameras in every single space photo ever.

Lots of people bag on Eastern Europe and Russia. But the fact of the matter is that the US has had to lie about shit just to seem like we have our shit together as well as they do. Sure they drink each other under the table and love to fuck goats. But they were the first in space, and have the hottest women on the planet at their disposal. Old Soviet computers were the shit too.

Soviet Russia had Russian women AND Asian women. Good lord, the hotness.

It didn't pan out right. I tried to say in Russian that their women are the finest, and long live the CCCP.

But given how much life sucks in Russia, most of the hotties hit the wall at around 28.

I like what they're doing, I guess those were prints from broken glass negatives. It's hard to think it was unheard of to use a computer to fix pictures in 1987.

Amazing the big equipment required at the time. Even the scanner I got in 1997 for less than 0, including Photo Express software could do as well I'm sure. Somehow it seems that flatbed scanners for home use had been around a lot longer.

I'm assuming, because of my American education, that those computers and everything were paid for by the state, and that the man using would have probably been killed if he fucked it up. But what better way to make sure that an old lithograph get restored than to threaten the man with death?

Little know fact about that system; you could play a bootleg version of Tempest on it with the trac ball.

Tom Collins - 2010-11-12

You've got serious balls if you play about with the equipment in the people's secret underground submarine base.

In sovie russia, photo shops you.
