Bruce Fraser dies at 52

Posted by & filed under General.

With great sadness, we heard this morning that our good friend, Bruce Fraser, passed away on Saturday, Dec. 16.

To many of us, Bruce was “Mr. Photoshop” and/or “Mr. Color Management.” He was the author or co-author of a number of the most successful computer titles of all time, including Real World Photoshop and Real World Camera RAW, as well as one of the founders of PixelGenius. To many people throughout the digital imaging industry, Bruce was an icon, but an approachable soul who was unstintingly fair in his criticism and generous with his time. Our thoughts go out to his family and close friends—he will be missed.


[Bruce and I worked together for more than 15 years, starting with my time at MacWEEK, and continuing through my recent tenure at Macworld. I’ve posted a remembrance of Bruce there, and Jason Snell, Macworld’s editorial director, has also posted a note regarding Bruce’s impact on him.]
