We’re proud to announce the immediate availability of a book that has literally been years in the making: Making Sense of Color Management.
As I outlined previously in Looking at the Future, there are significant changes with today’s display technology. The goal of this book is to help you navigate this new environment whether you’re using Photoshop, a web browser, or Xcode. You’ll not only learn how to manage color, but also be introduced to new techniques and best practices.
To give you a practical example of how this can help your project, the team at Instagram used the book to update the iOS 10 app that was featured during the iPhone 7 keynote.
As John Gruber points out in the book’s foreword, we’ve all considered color management to be a dark art. Hopefully after reading this short book, you’ll have the same reaction he did: “Well, that’s actually pretty simple.”

We’re pleased to announce the availability of xScope 4.3 in the Mac App Store and as a direct download from the xScope website.
The main focus of this release was compatibility with macOS Sierra. It took us awhile to figure out why Guides and Frames always appeared at launch, but thankfully they no longer do :-)
Another issue in Sierra is the Rulers sometimes getting really small. If you were affected by this, remember that there’s a Reset Rulers option under Rulers in the menubar. That, along with Display Square Rulers, should help get things back in order.
There are other improvements which you can read about in the version history. This update is FREE for all registered xScope 4 customers.
Since iOS 10 launched two weeks ago, Iconfactory Sticker packs have been some of the most popular and well received on the App Store. Now we’re giving you even more reasons to download and share.
Select Iconfactory Sticker packs now include iPhone wallpapers! Tap the pack’s title art and then select “Save Wallpaper…” to enjoy Sticker related goodness right on your lock screen. The following packs have been updated:
In addition to wallpapers, Mahalo, Pixel World, and Stickypoo have been expanded with all-new Stickers for you to enjoy. The Pixel World update contains over twenty all-new retro graphics including lots of new food items, retro technology (mini pocket computer anyone?), space stuff and clothing.
Speaking of clothing, thanks to the fine folks at Cotton Bureau, one of our favorite packs has made the leap from Sticker to screen printed goodness. “When s#!t hits the fan, only Deadpoo can take care of business.” The T-shirts and hoodies come in a variety of colors and fabrics, and the sale only lasts a few days so don’t sit around, get moving and order Deadpoo today!
Finally, October is coming and with it our favorite holiday – Halloween! Stay tuned for the spookiest Stickers you’ll ever find on the App Store. We think you’ll enjoy sending spine-chilling treats in the coming weeks. Boo!
