OSX 10.7 & 10.8 Compatible Software for Older X-Rite i1 and Gretagmacbeth Calibration Devices

If you own an older Gretagmacbeth or X-rite calibration device, this post is for you.

If you own an older Gretagmacbeth or X-rite calibration device, this post is for you.

I recently upgraded my Mac OS to the OSX 10.8 Mavericks Operating System.  Upon plugging my Eye-One Display 2 puck into my computer I found it was no longer supported. There must be a fix, X-Rite just can’t expect me to throw my trusted calibration device away!

Well after an hour of searching I found nothing. Ready to smash the device with my favorite framing hammer, I tried some less-direct searches and finally EUREKA! Xrite has done a good job hiding their profiler software upgrade but the secret is out.

Here are the links, you may need to register as a device owner to access these pages.

Tyson Robichaud: Inkjet vs Silver Gelatin


©Tyson Robichaud

Tyson Robichaud’s blog reads like a chat with a good friend. He writes on a variety of topics from the theoretical,  A photographic study in color, Henri Matisse style, to the practical, Olympus 45mm f/1.8 vs the Contax G Zeiss 45mm f/2. Regardless of the subject, Tyson brings a fresh and personal approach to the photo blogosphere and especially to micro 4/3 and the mirrorless camera genre.

When Tyson proposed a print test comparing our silver gelatin prints to his own and our inkjet prints we thought, “why not!” Tyson was prompted to contact DSI by the team at Macphun software after he reviewed Tonality Pro software. His black & white conversions with Tonality Pro inspired him to take the next logical step, printing. We think the results of his test are worth reading. We’d like to add that we made no proof prints for Tyson in advance. He simply sent in the files and we sent back prints.

You can check out Tyson’s article, Digital Silver Imaging, a unique digital silver gelatin printing process., and his entire blog at, http://tysonrobichaudphotography.wordpress.com/
