    Dropped prices on Design Plugins down to 5$.

    Optimage is 40% off yet another week.

    There are some huge PNG images stuck somewhere in the documents making the download 229MB instead of probably 20MB.

    It looks like there's a bug with releasing symbol overrides in Sketch.

    Thanks. The rest can be approximated with mathematical models and/or guided by tools. I think this is the only way to consistency.

    These optical effects should not be treated as art or magic. Most of them can be done with mathematical precision (previous discussion). I even made a plugin for Sketch (paid) to automate some optical adjustments.

    Is it a hard change considering how well-known Imgur is?

    The post (cache) was removed without notice. This is the problem. Not the quality of the post.

    Just to improve the answer :)

    The simple answer is yes. It's also backward compatible.

    It's safe to discard the profile if the working space is the display space. But on wide-gamut devices this breaks the above rule for untagged images. They will have a noticeable color shift.

    So the sane way is to either set the working space to sRGB and convert the screenshots from the display space to sRGB, or sacrifice the wide gamut and some color accuracy and just set the display space to sRGB in system preferences.

    This is because prior versions of Chrome were not colour managed.

    Tagged images were color managed since 2011-2012, i.e. Chrome was not fully color managed.

    CSS and SVG colours are considered to be sRGB (unless specified otherwise, using some proposed CSS features).

    Previously, all browsers were rendering these color values as is, effectively tagging them with Display color space.

    Firefox can also be colour managed, but it’s off by default.

    Color management applied only to tagged images by default. Full Color Management is optional but not for long.

    This is a good thing! It means you can expect colours to look closer across different computers and different browsers.

    This ensures color consistency but not color accuracy as long as rendering pipeline is 8-bit. It is critical for soft gradients, which are now more likely to have banding issues.

    Originally, I thought it's recreated after a restart. But you must have done it. Then I found this article which claims you need a disk repair in Disk Utility. Hope it helps.

    It's best to use a proper version control system. Then you can still use the macOS Versions as a visual Undo/Redo and Clipboard manager. Nothing else is deleted when you close a document.
