Monitor Calibration in Windows 7Reading this article: http://www.pusztaiphoto.com/articles/colormgmt/win7/default.aspx solved an issue I was seeing on Win7 where the LUT wasn't being reloaded when logging off and back on and some other times like when changing resolution or GFX card options.
I am using Lacie BlueEye Pro (v4.5.5) and especially in this new version the linked article is useful because the newer version no longer contains the LUT loader application as it relies on the OS to load it.
Firefox3 Colour Management *updated*The latest version of Firefox (official 3.5 and BETA 3.6 versions) can support colour managed profiles for those of you who have:
A) Wide gamut monitors (such as the HP L2475W).
B) Colour calibrated monitors.
To enable or check what the mode is currently set to simply type "about:config" into your address bar without the quotes and do a search for "gfx.color"
On the entry "gfx.color.mode" will probably be a number value, the default should be 2 but you can customise this with:
0 = Color management is disabled for everything
1 = Color management is enabled for all rendered graphics including untagged images which will assume sRGB
2 = Color management is enabled for all rendered graphics except untagged images which are left unmanaged.
If web images on FlickR/DeviantART and other photo based sites were looking too bland and washed out then the above may help resolve this.
Anyone wishing to colour calibrate (I highly recommend it as the results are excellent) then should look at the XRite
Finally an article on The Reg I can stand by!https://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/06/23/police_photographer_stops/
Here's a nice article outlining the state of Public Photography country wide where people are being stop searched and being treated like suspects. I know many of these stories have been told in various media in the past but it's nice to get the big picture (haha!) and see it all in one.
I myself have only had one encounter in Lee-on-Solent by 2 officers who stopped their car to ask what I was doing and thankfully the Gosport Force has some sense because I told them I was photographing the area and they bid their farewell. I don't know what I would have done though if it had turned ugly because back then I was not aware of the rights of taking photos on public land!
An update to this, The Reg also has a new article outlining what you can photograph when you're out and about: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/06/23/photography_law/
Perhaps I'm starting to like the reg more now

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

July Commissions!Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just ask you to be patient because I work on them as ideas come by. I try to finish them as fast as I can but I give priority to quality over speed.
Those interested please read this:
