PHOTOGRAPHIC & IMAGE RESTORATION
A BRIEF HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY
THE FIRST OR OLDEST EVER SURVIVING PHOTOGRAPH
The First Photograph, or more specifically, the earliest known surviving photograph made in a camera, was taken by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 or 1827. The image depicts the view from an upstairs window at Niépce's estate, Le Gras, in the Burgundy region of France.
THIS IS THE ACTUAL IMAGE ENHANCED!
THE FIRST EVER DIGITAL IMAGE
The first EVER version of digital-binary was taken at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed by a team led by Russel existing technology, the wire-photo drum scanner, so that alphanumeric characters, diagrams, photographs and other graphics could be transferred into digital computer memory.
One of the first photographs scanned was a picture of Kirsch's infant son Walden. The resolution was 176x176 pixels with only one bit per pixel, i.e., stark black and white with no intermediate grey tones, but by combining multiple scans of the photograph done with different black-white threshold settings, greyscale information could also be acquired.
