Humanæ project, a look at flesh tones

A few weeks ago I made shout-out to the Humanæ Project (http://humanae.tumblr.com) on our podcast. In the artist Angelica Dass’ own words: “The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed
with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.”

I decided to dig into these images in ScopeBox… and was surprised by what I found.

We’ve just release ClipWrap 2.5.3. The full release notes are available below.

ClipWrap 2.5.3 only runs on Intel Macs running Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8. We’ve made made this switch in order to support the Gatekeeper function within Mac OS X 10.8 (“Mountain Lion”). Without making this change, users on the newest release of Mac OS X would be unable to run ClipWrap with the default security policy.

In spite of this change, we still fully support our PowerPC and Mac OS X 10.5 users. The previous release of ClipWrap, 2.5.2, remains available for download from our trial page and support will be more than happy to assist with any questions.
