ColorShop™X Software CD

There are many ways to describe and define color. Today's world of digital color production has created many different paths to reproduce color, often where no hard copy is provided as a reference. ColorShop X provides a suite of tools that enable anyone who works with color, or is interested in color, to evaluate, predict and manipulate color both visually and numerically. ColorShop X provides interpretation of color through the use of ICC profile and a wide range of X-Rite color measurement devices. In addition, tools are provided to maintain and organize libraries of colors and make specialized types of profiles.

All of the tools are quickly accessed through a toolbar that can be moved or hidden as necessary. Instrument interaction includes bringing data into ColorShop X, posting to other applications, and defining targets for further analysis.

Using ColorShop X, a Graphic Arts, Photography or Design professional has unprecedented power to view, predict and manage color.
