Some of my earliest computer work from the late 1980s to 1992. Images are either scanned or frame grabbed from video camera or videotape and brought into computer. Scanners had 300ppi max.

In those early days, printers were not archival for the masses, digital cameras did not exist, scan lines showed up in images from video, and no masking existed in the very early versions of image programs.

Montaging an image was very difficult because figures had to cut out by using the lasso tool and blending an image was done with the gradient tool. I began my photo work on the first Amiga, then I moved to a Macintosh ci using the first versions of Photoshop.
