[Lenna (que debería llamarse en realidad Lena) es un fragmento de fotografía de una playmate reproducida en el número de noviembre (miss noviembre) de 1972 de la revista Playboy. Sirve como imagen de prueba para los algoritmos de compresión de imagen y se ha convertido de facto en un estándar industrial y científico.]
This scan, nonetheless, became one of the most used images in computer history, so much that the mysterious Lenna came to be dubbed the 'First Lady of the Internet' and one of the influential photographs that changed the course of history 
The image had a sense of affection to many image processing scientists that one of them even wrote a sonnet about her.
O dear Lena, your beauty is so vast
'lena' or 'lenna' is a digitized Playboy centerfold, from November 1972.
(Lenna is the spelling in Playboy, Lena is the Swedish spelling of the name.) Lena Soderberg (ne Sjööblom) was last reported living in her native Sweden, happily married with three kids and a job with the state liquor monopoly.
In 1988, she was interviewed by some Swedish computer related publication, and she was pleasantly amused by what had happened to her picture.
That was the first she knew of the use of that picture in the computer business.
