Don Hutcheson Consulting is a great place to find serious color management consulting (which is something that I do also, but which Don does quite a bit more of, and very well). www.hutchcolor.com

ColorBlind Prove It! is software for monitor calibration and profiling which I designed and helped to build. It contains a version of my patented system for visual calibration and a lot of information on the finer points of monitor calibration. Available for Mac and Windows. www.color.com

Lyson's Small Gamut inksets are a better way to print black & white images with four- and six-ink printers, which allows for complete freedom to give the prints the correct, subtle coloration which is so important to the character of black & white, without imparting undesired color shifts that normally come from printing monochrome with color inks. These inks are also based on a patented invention of mine. www.nazdar.com > Small Gamut Inks

The Live Picture users group showcases the work of several noteworthy photographers who all use and depend, as I do, on the fabulous Live Picture application for Macintosh, despite it having been out of development for over seven years now.

Michael Schultz Photography shows the finely-crafted, high-end industrial photography of my friend Mike Schultz and reminds me of the amazingly beautiful prints of his that I saw several years ago when he was visiting. They were made with Epson's dye inkset on Photo Rag paper, which makes stunning prints possible, but they are also prints which fade extremely rapidly on display (he has moved on from that arrangement). We are all waiting for a more robust equivalent using pigmented inks on fine-art style inkjet papers to complement the excellent quality we can get on the photo papers, though the results on the fine-art papers with pigmented inksets have continued to improve and are already quite good.
