Four Reasons on a Thursday Morning to Love Color

Four Reasons on a Thursday Morning to Love Color

1. Firefox 3’s Color Management System

Kitties looking funny? Horses changing color? Fix your Firefox settings!

From Rob Galbraith:

The long-awaited Mozilla Firefox 3
for Mac and Windows, which emerged from beta at 10AM Pacific today (6/17), is
the latest web browser to support the colour managed display of photos
with embedded ICC profiles. That’s the good news. The bad news is it’s
turned off by default. Here’s how to turn it on.”

Let Rob tell you, color profiles confuse me.

2.
The Colorsplash Lomo.
It’s like having gels at your automatic disposal. Or like those pens with eleven-colors-in-one.

    Turned color management on. It did not fix funny looking kitties. Next time Firefox will need a new button “Make this image look the way I’d like”. And make presets “Like 300 movie”, “Like Harry Potter”, etc. Much better than confuse everybody with all these color profiles.
