August 2, 2011: Kayell has announced availability of an upgraded Datacolor SpyderGallery iPad app, available for free download on the Apple App Store.
SpyderGallery is the first-ever colour calibration app to allow for custom colour profiling of iOS devices, and is the first to provide a viewer to apply custom colour corrections to images. To date, the app has received thousands of downloads.
Tablet colour can be attractive, but lacking in accuracy and consistency. The Datacolor SpyderGallery was designed to help photographers manage the colour output on the iPad display. This app provides an easy-to-use program to calibrate the display and assure that colours are consistent throughout the entire workflow process. (A Spyder3 colorimeter is required to use the calibration component of SpyderGallery.)
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
‘More and more of our customers are using the iPad as a tool to display their portfolio. With SpyderGallery we offer them the assurance that their intended colours are displayed correctly on the iPad,’ said Doris Brown, vice-president, Marketing, Datacolor. ‘We’re proud to be the first to bring our colour calibration technology to the tablet market.’
