This is where it all began…years before Photoshop…there was Scitex.

This is where I cut my retouching teeth. Working on Scitex felt like something, they cost millions of dollars and very few people had access to them. Now every spotty teenager gets a copy of Photoshop with a box of cereal and thinks they are a retoucher. I’ve been searching for an original Scitex desk for years but sadly I think they have all been scraped. Shame, they were awesome. Recently, I found this, a Scitex mouse. Very few still in existence and I had this one shipped from Israel. They were awesome too. Ahh…the good old days…

    Robert Haavie - I’m 67, when I was a young aspiring fashion photographer Scitex was likw a magic word spoken in hushed tones. Mention it and get a somber nod of the head to acknowledge that only the gods had access to that magic. Thanks for keeping that memory alive.
