COLOURlovers recently posted a great article on the colours of video games.  If you don’t know COLOURlovers, it is a wonderful site dedicated to colour palettes.  In their blog they have themed post which will explore the colour palette prevalent in different walks of life.  Now anybody who knows me knows I am a total sucker for classic video games (actually, just vieo game in general).  I’m tempted to put together some palettes drawn from some modern classics.

Ever finished up a kick ass design on your Mac, sent it to your PC running client and been told it looked “too dark” on their monitor?  Gamma Toggle is a nifty little program that allows you to toggle between various gamma settings to see how your designs look on other operating systems.  Though it is no replacement for actually loading your design on a bunch of different computers, it is really handy for getting a real-time idea of how it looks on a standard setting MAC or PC screen from your MAC or PC.

It’s tiny, it’s handy, it’s free so there is no reason why your shouldn’t go get it!

Picked this tip up from the excellent Boagworld podcast.
