    If this upsets you, wait until you see "content aware" in CS5.

    Ink jet cyanotype is like an artificial flavor. It could give you an idea of what it's like, but it isn't the real thing.

    True. The sad thing is that some mistake watching it as the real thing. Same as the ink jet cyanotype.

    It reminds me of those Photoshop filters that imitate the Polaroid type 55 negative edges. I see those filters used on color images.

    Those that can, do. Those that can't, fake.

    I just ignore these things with a chuckle. This type of thing is occurring throughout society; it is not just photography. There is a great dumbing down of humanity on account of our reliance on technology's assistance. In photography, antique processes are being faked digitally with the goal of reproducing the look of the original, but it never quite works out that way. Many of these people have never even seen an original print of the process they are trying to fake.

    Good discussion. I guess I just chalk it up to complete ignorance of what they are doing or looking at. At our art show last weekend I had at least four people ask me what kind of computer I use, and several more wanted to know what kind of camera I used. If it wasn't a Nikon or Canon, they didn't understand. If I told them no computer was used, they were mystified. And if I told them no camera was used (Lumen prints), it went right over their head.
    I do wish those interested in photography today would learn the history, no matter what process they end up using.

    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    Like an artificial flavor... It could give you an idea of what it's like,
    but it isn't the real thing.

    Like watching sex but not having it!


    Sounds almost like the difference between drawing a scene...
    and photographing it!

    Curious thing though about filmmaking...
    when you make a movie... you may pretend to kill someone or even die...
    but when you kiss, there's no foolin' around!
    It is the real thing!
