The Digital Darkroom Is Born

Early Software and Hardware That Started The Digital Photography Revolution
  • Michael Clawson

Abstract

I never experienced the original darkroom. That darkroom made of chemicals, papers, processing tanks, safe lights, enlargers, and the like. The first darkroom I experienced was digital, right inside my computer. In fact, it was a program actually named Digital Darkroom, which was created in 1987 by Silicon Beach Software. What made Digital Darkroom so special was its ability to edit gray-scale images, something Apple’s MacPaint couldn’t do at the time.
