Arrow Finally The Secret Revealed, Who Is Behind The Curtain

Well, I finally found the link to the great "secret" to pro retouching, the super computer with top secret photo editing software and the great OZ mystery man guru who does it all and teaches his best disciples who are the top leaders now in the retouching world. Check it out, this made my whole morning

Pretty wild. I guess the "steering wheels" made it "mobile" too, eh?

Hey Pixel, and the great wheel on the console is programmed directly to the dodge and burn tool that we're all trying to master, me included. The meters and dials show exactly how much retouching is applied and registers the "red" area when too much has been done, then the rig just shuts down for an hour to cool off until the next session. It's too much, what a laugh! He da man! How about that cool, high tech state of the art monitor, man, where can I buy one?

i think the wheel allows you to "dial" in the correct color....i remember running a screen scanner with an oscilliscope on the main panel that you used to set your HL and shadow range...

Yes, the programable wheel is the precursor to our Wacom tablet or mouse. Secret Foot pedals enclosed under the computer are used to also control the wheels direction. If you read the links underneath, this was quite a hoax in Popular Mechanics or Science or something

I needed something like this to brighten up my morning and this was it. Fun

LOL... I spoke via forums to Lukket on www.mechapixel.com.

There's a long thread about the history of this modification on there. It's a great read if you have time.

It is a classic shop though!
