History of PhotographyMaking it easy to create and relive cherished memories
Sentimental snapshots and poignant pictures
The first pinhole camera, which recorded images upside-down for viewing, was invented and put to use around 1000 A.D., but it was not until 1827 that Joseph Nicephore Niepce created the first photo image by letting light sources draw the picture for him. For several years thereafter, Niepce partnered with Louis Daguerre to create a more effective form of photography known as the daguerreotype. Since then, photography has evolved to glossy colored prints and crystal clear digital images.
