Release id #47782 : hires.demo

This must be the first Picture ever on a C64 :-)
I would like to know where the Original comes from, so that i can use it for new Graphicmodes, and stay Commodore-Style.

Any Idea?

It seems that the American guys who worked for Commodore in the early years have not realised how great and inspiring some of their side productions were, such as this one. Thank goodness us sceners are very nostalgic for these releases :-)

Sorry if I sound lame, but who is that sexy woman on the bitmap?

loading this up when I got my first floppy drive was just amazing.

The picture was also used in a very cool design in Top Priority/Contex

yago: there was a discussion about that pic on the german c64-forum a while ago.... that pic seems to have been kinda popular in the 80s for various stuff, eg printer tests. who the girl on the pic actually is would be some nice trivia to know =P

groepaz: found it in forum64... but its a typical forum64-thread, half the people claim thats samantha fox :-D

however, distilled some info from there that the lady is also included in photonpaint for amiga, and in some star-printer stuff

edit: the lady is not on http://luigi.eliott-ness.com/amiga/photon_paint.adf

yago: BCS Intro predates it - though it's certainly not as good looking. :-)

Although I'm gonna write the whole story as we know as now in a forthcoming issue of my horribly coded (since 1996) Plus/4 diskmag, I think it's worth to leave some hints here too, after i contacted the Apple engineer who pioneered the photo digitizing, including that lady's picture.

Read the full story here.

Oh and let me place here a little addon too: probably, digitizing jewelry models from magazines was a sort of habit: I bet this Commodore classic too, apparently from De Beers' mag ads, comes from a similar source of Cartier's (?) model "face of a woman"... ;)
