Datacolor Releases SpyderGallery™ 1.1 iPad® Display Calibration Application
Datacolor® today announced the release of its SpyderGallery™iPad® app version 1.1 available for free download on the Apple® App Store. Originally introduced to the market by Datacolor last month, SpyderGallery is the first-ever color calibration app to allow for custom color profiling of iOS devices and is the first to provide a viewer to apply custom color corrections to images. To date, the app has received thousands of downloads.
The improved SpyderGallery 1.1, in addition to its earlier app features, offers more reliability for RAW and large JPEG image file support, faster thumbnail generation, display and scrolling, and no longer requires Location Services to be enabled, which was the number one request among current users. When disabled, SpyderGallery will use the standard photo picker to browse albums and select images from the iPad photo library.

HP Offers Large Format Photo Negative Solution for Black and White Photo Prints
HP today announced a free, downloadable software application for the HP Designjet Z3200 Photo Printer series that enables professional photographers to generate large-format photo negatives for the production of high-quality, black and white silver halide photo prints.
HP is showcasing the Large Format Photo Negative solution for the first time at Les Rencontres d’Arles 2011 in Arles, France, during a conference titled, “The Best of Both Worlds: Digital Negatives for Black & White Silver Prints” on Tuesday, July 5 at 6 p.m. in Cour des Rencontres, Rue Fanton.
Available in September, the Large Format Photo Negative software package includes a paper preset for the HP Designjet Z3200 Photo Printer series that allows photographers to print a digital negative from a film, scanned or digital capture file onto a transparent substrate. Once printed, these large-format photo negatives can be used as masters to produce high-quality black and white fine art prints through a contact process. The final print size is the same as that of the transparency, allowing an original 35 mm negative to be blown up as large as a 44-inch print.
While writing on film from digital data is not new, the Large Format Photo Negative solution offers one of the simplest, least expensive and highest-quality options available on the market. Users only need to have access to an HP Designjet Z3200 Photo Printer, the correct media and the free software package from the HP website to produce photo negatives. The Large Format Photo Negative solution can be used with any silver halide papers, including fixed or variable grade, and can be used to produce large-format prints from 35 mm images, enhance images from old or damaged negatives or archive digital files physically on film and paper.
