New AspectFrame Flash panel: tester wanted

Photographer & developer Thomas Menath has whipped up AspectFrame, a Flash panel for Photoshop CS4, and he’d like to get help testing it. (The Flash UI can also run as a dialog inside Photoshop CS3.) According to Thomas,

This tool is just for drawing rectangular frames around images and optional adding additional space to get the standard ratios of 4:3 and 3:2 with an optional cutting line.

For more info & to download the panel and submit bugs/feedback, go to the product page.

Monitor lust

(which I don’t mean as a complete, imperative sentence)

  • “Sharp has developed a full HD LCD panel that mixes the hue of each pixel from a palette of five colours rather than the usual three. The result, the company claimed, is the ability to render faithfully the colour space of the unaided human eye.” Each pixel “not only has the usual red, green and blue colour elements but also cyan and yellow sub-pixels too.” This news led to a long email discussion among Photoshop engineers about rods & cones, the Purkinje effect, the hard-wiring of mouse brains, and so on. (I’m not kidding, and it’s one of the reasons I love working on the team.) [Via Jerry Harris]
  • NEC’s huge CRV43 LCD display offers a gently curving, 43-inch, 2,880 x 900 resolution panel–for a mere $8,000. Looks really cool, though I’m surprised the resolution isn’t higher. (My 17″ MBP offers 30% more vertical resolution.) [Via]
