When Apple made a CD-ROM to help your Mac's true colors shine through

<article>

Against all writing advice, let’s kick off this week’s Think Retro with an utterly banal statement: Tech evolves quickly. And then to compound the transgression, another: We take things for granted now that would have been borderline inconceivable just a few short years ago.</p><p>
Yet while these statements are indeed trite and facile, you nevertheless tend to lose sight of the extent to which they are true. This week’s topic is a case in point: a CD-ROM, produced in 1991, called the Apple Color Graphic Sampler.</p><figure class="large " itemprop="associatedMedia" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject" itemid="https://cms-images.idgesg.net/images/article/2015/10/color-graphics-sampler-01-100619805-large.jpg">

To quote the liner notes, it’s “designed to help you easily see the benefits of using color on the Apple™ Macintosh™ computer. We’ve provided the sampler so you can quickly see color performance—right after you pull your Macintosh monitor out of the box.”</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/2989106/software-graphics/when-apple-made-a-cd-rom-to-help-your-macs-true-colors-shine-through.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
