Take a photo on your iPhone, turn it into a physical postcard, and send it anywhere in the world. It can take as little as a few seconds and cost between $1.50 to $3.00.

Bill Atkinson’s iPhone App PhotoCard makes custom postcards a snap. You can send postcards of your images, not the ones everyone else sends. (Or you can use Bill’s!) The only thing your postcards will be missing is an international stamp, but then it’s not as likely to get lost in international mail or take as long to get there.

If you don’t know who Bill Atkinson is … you should.

Bill Atkinson, one of the original authors of the Mac interface and color management expert, offers excellent free resources on his website. His website is so rich you might miss the free color management resources he makes available – targets, profiles, test files. In particular his Profile Test Images file is excellent for evaluating inks, papers, and profiles objectively. These resources are excellent. I recommend them to all of my workshop and seminar participants. I recommend them to you too.

Using real world in combination with synthetic information can help you evaluate the accuracy of a color management system. It’s important to use a full spectrum of colors and information you can evaluate objectively (information you aren’t so personally invested in you may not be able to maintain objectivity while evaluating it). Bill Atkinson, one of the world’s foremost authorities on color management, offers excellent test files on his website. They’re free!
