How did they do that?
I came across this video “Before Photoshop” recently and it reminded me of one of my first summer jobs at a local newspaper. I dreamed of designing for print after watching the cut and paste process. Little did I know then how things would change with the digital age.
Take note of just how involved it was. This is exactly why the programming techies were enlisted to develop programs like Photoshop. And today, the presses are completely digitized requiring so much more than mechanic know-how to operate. Cut and paste is still the best way to learn. But, software savvy truly takes publishing to a new level.
