By: Sandro Franchi Sandro Franchi Mon, 26 Dec 2011 23:30:36 +0000 I’ve read this article and each individual comment so many times and who knows why I’ve never said you “Thank you Bruce”.
I’m always talking about you with my colleagues and customers, telling them who was one of the persons who permanently inspired me and from whom I’ve learned so much.
Everyone should read this post in order to know your enormous impact in the whole industry and how, even without knowing of your existence, you’ve touched their lives, jobs and ways of thinking about color and imaging.
Well, thanks again Bruce, you’re always on my mind, in my professional and personal world.

Thanks Bruce, Sandro.

Thank you for all your dedication to the PS world

By: David Howe David Howe Wed, 10 Jan 2007 23:31:09 +0000 I’ve been on Photoshop for 10 years now, and during those years I of course had a few occasions to work with Bruce. He was one of our A-list prerelease testers, and general Photoshop/color consultant. His expertise and willingness to stick to his guns on issues ranging from color to RAW workflows was a great help to our team and the product. And he found more than a few bugs along the way, helping my QE team catch things that might not have been caught otherwise. I can’t imagine Photoshop being exactly what it is now w/o Bruce. It’s going to be different next time without him around. We’ll miss you Bruce.

By: carl corey carl corey Sun, 31 Dec 2006 14:53:33 +0000 Bruce had the rare gift of being an informative and generous teacher. His insightful conversations and lectures were always laced with his remarkable wit. I always enjoyed any time spent in his company yet I only knew him casually…I can only imagine what a deep loss he is to those who knew him very well. To those people my thoughts and best wishes go.
I will always think of Bruce when I open a nice little Red Cabernet.
A toast to Bruce. A helluva guy.

By: Eddie Hendry Eddie Hendry Sun, 31 Dec 2006 14:00:09 +0000 I knew bruce as a young married man in Edinburgh.

He was a gas to be with, going to gigs in clapped out vans. Playing snooker in a wallpaper tent. Art college gigs with Mowgli and the Donuts, and much alchohol.

Many times sitting round my sisters flat, where he stayed for a time, talking, playing music and generaly putting the world to right.

Though I did not see Bruce in the last thirty years. I have heard of his growing stature as a colourfull guru. His renown as a educator in colour has spread far and wide.

I had hoped to meet him again, now I will have to wait till I am on the other side.

Love and sympathy to all who knew him. He is sadly missed.

By: kenneth chen kenneth chen Fri, 22 Dec 2006 16:58:34 +0000 Dear Angela, family, friends of Mr. Fraser,
Deepest sadness and sympathy. I only know through his books and teaching how great a loss Bruce’s death is to my being a photographer. Sending all my strength to those in Bruce’s
circle at Adobe, Pixel Genius, D65, and the photo community.
Sincerely, Kenneth Chen

By: weinrebe weinrebe Thu, 21 Dec 2006 23:04:41 +0000 I’m greatly saddened to hear of the loss to Bruce’s family and the community. Bruce was a benchmark for me, for both teaching and writing. Our sympathy to his family.

By: Parker Parker Wed, 20 Dec 2006 22:36:39 +0000 I met Bruce in 1995 when I was designing a color management product. I was introduced to Bruce by a mutual friend to brief Bruce on the product. I soon learned that Bruce was seen as the most knowledgeable and respected author writing about color management. I read his articles in MacUser and Macworld magazines, and I can tell you he was the most knowledgeable author writing about color management.

From the beginning, the field of color management brought together an interesting mix of scientists and artists. I was a scientist and Bruce was an artist. The term spectrum is truly appropriate for describing the range of people in the color management community. Bruce was in the middle of that spectrum. To a pure scientist, he was an artist. To a pure artist, he was a scientist. To his credit, Bruce could carry an intelligent and meaningful conversation with both the scientists and the artist and everyone in between. He was a very smart and gifted person.

Early on I considered Bruce a friend as many who met him did. Over the years I sought his advice and help. He gladly set aside time to help me when I needed his help on business issues. Most recently I sought Bruce’s help while I was working for a few years at Epson America. Bruce brought some things about the products to my attention and his points were very good. I investigated the issues and worked on solving them. You can thank Bruce Fraser for improvements in the Epson products. One area specifically was the user interface for the printer drivers. On a side note, you can also thank Jeff Schewe for his positive contributions to Epson products.

I want people to know that Bruce liked the Epson products. He was not just a critic to be a critic. He saw ways to improve the products and he wanted the products to be better for the end users which would ultimately be good for Epson. Bruce was a vocal consumer advocate. Many people within the companies that made the products recognized how valuable Bruce was to them in terms of helping them make better products. Bruce understood good workflow and the features that consumers needed. He also understood the appropriate terms for the features and menu options, something that the scientist and engineers did not always understand as well as Bruce. Now that Bruce is gone, it will be difficult to find someone that can take his place as advisor to those companies.

Bruce was a good person and a good friend. I will miss him very much. As other have expressed, I cannot hold back the tears.

By: emccainaz emccainaz Wed, 20 Dec 2006 17:34:33 +0000 The photography world has lost a giant – a very intelligent, generous and kind giant. Bruce was unfailingly helpful in my experience. He helped our ASMP chapter put on one of our most successful programs and raised the level of knowledge greatly. He was a consumate professional and a wonderful person. I just don’t know how I’m going to get by without his books and programs. Thank you, thank you, thank you Bruce for being so generous with your knowledge and understanding.

My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

By: sbroback sbroback Wed, 20 Dec 2006 00:26:19 +0000 Bruce was a rare talent and a witty, eloquent man. He was one of those few people that could make a room full of forceful, talkative imaging gurus sit quietly with rapt attention when he spoke.

Whether the subject was wine, travel, or rendering intents, his contributions and ready smile always left the people at a gathering the better for his being there.

Angela, my deepest condolences.

By: Paul Lawrence Paul Lawrence Tue, 19 Dec 2006 22:23:50 +0000 I first heard the name ‘Bruce Fraser’ attached to a colour profile. It was the begining of my quest for great colour. Along with so many around the world I will remember the inspiration, accurate information and common sense that came from Bruce.

Sincere condolences to Bruce’s family and friends

By: MindsEye MindsEye Tue, 19 Dec 2006 18:36:36 +0000 I never met you in person but you have provided a wealth of information and inspiration- both for me personally and the photographic and digital imaging community. Thank you. I’m sure you will have many rewarding lives ahead.

To your family and friends- My sincere condolences.

Peace always.

By: mphoto mphoto Tue, 19 Dec 2006 14:46:25 +0000 I was fortunate enough to have worked with you in person; a more humble man I’ve not met. I found it amusing that you appeared to have no idea how many lives you touched or what a profound impact you’ve had on the field of digital imaging. You’ve left quite a mark and have secured your place in the history of the medium. I don’t know how I’ll get through a new version of Photoshop without one of your excellent texts.
Eternal peace to you my friend.

My deepest condolences to Bruce’s family and colleagues.
