Two things to share with you today.
First up, Mozilla just released Mozilla Firefox 3. It’s free to download at their site. Aside from all the new features, one cool thing about this is that it supports color management. How will this work? Simple, follow the 2 steps below:
- Step 1: Install the Color Management add-on. Once installed, enabling and disabling color management is as simple as checking a checkbox and relaunching Firefox 3.
- Step 2: Manually edit the color management setting. The steps are:
- Type about:config in Firefox 3’s address bar and press Return. The configuration settings will appear.
- In the Filter field, type gfx. The list of settings will shorten to show just those related to graphics, i.e. gfx.
- If the Value for gfx.color_management.enabled is False, double-click anywhere on that line to toggle the setting to True.
- Quit and relaunch Firefox 3.
To confirm that color management is working, check out the photos on this page. If all four quadrants of the first photo are a seamless match, then colour management in your copy of Firefox is up and running.

Second, ever wondered what the differences are between DPI and PPI? I’m sure you’ve seen PPI (pixels-per-inch) in Photoshop and DPI (dots-per-inch) in printers (and even your monitor display resolution) and you always wondered how this will impact the photos you’re editing both for online publishing and printing. Well, here’s an article from tildefrugal.net on that explains both DPI and PPI. I hope it’s helpful to you, it sure is helpful to me! :)
