Katrin Eismann ’91 (photo illustration) was one of three digital imaging professionals inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame Sept. 7 during the annual Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Boston. Eismann, an internationally recognized artist, author and educator, has been working with digital imaging tools since 1989.

After graduating from RIT, she became the first intern at the Kodak Center of Creative Imaging in Camden, Maine. Three years later she was director of education and had implemented a curriculum that focused on imaging, design, and multimedia. In 2002 she received her MFA degree in design from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Eismann is the author of several books on digital imaging, including Real World Digital Photography (Peachpit Press, 1999) and Photoshop Restoration & Retouching (New Riders, 2001).

She lives in Weehawken, N.J., with her husband, John McIntosh, who is the chair of the bachelor of fine arts, computer arts program at the School of Visual Arts. Currently, Eismann is working on a new book, Photoshop Masking & Compositing, and dedicating more and more of her time to fine art.
