Features

Let your artistic side go wild!
Put control of your image library at your fingertips and automatically extract colours from any image. Or go directly into an image and drag any colour you can see to create a custom colour palette. ColorMunki Photo also lets you grab colour from virtually any substrate with the easy spot colour measurement function. Then, when you’re ready to use your custom palette, synchronise or import into your favorite photo and design applications.

With ColorMunki's PrintSafe™, you can preview your colour palettes under different lighting sources and evaluate your printing process. Think of the money you’ll save by catching out-of-gamut colours BEFORE you go to production!

Share it with the world
When you’re ready, confidently share your images with ColorMunki’s DigitalPouch. Simply drag and drop them into the pouch, “zip” it up, and send. The recipient doesn’t need any special software installed; they’ll be able to view the images with your embedded profiles in a self-contained image viewing window. Plus the DigitalPouch will automatically check the recipients monitor for a current profile and provide a warning if they aren’t profiled, so you can be assured you and your client are each viewing on a profiled monitor.

RGB and CMYK printer profiling

  • No need to read individual colour patches – ColorMunki’s superfast scanning can rapidly measure test charts in less than one minute!
  • Simply scan one 50-patch test chart, and ColorMunki will learn how your printer behaves with these colours and dynamically generate a second chart of 50 patches. Then print and scan this second chart of 50 patches and your profile is perfected!
  • ColorMunki is so smart it even has the ability to optimise your profile based on images for specific colours, black & white, flesh tones, etc.

Camera profiling

  • When you are ready to use your custom palette, synchronise or import into any of your favourite photo and design applications.

Communicate effortlessly

  • Share your masterpieces quickly and easily with DigitalPouch, a self-executable application that allows for colour managed sharing and viewing of your images.
  • Simply drag and drop the images you want to transport into the pouch, “zip” it up and send.
  • The receiver doesn’t need to own or install any special software. They simply doublec-lick on the DigitalPouch file and they’ll be able to view the images with your embedded profiles in a fully automatic and colour managed viewing application. DigitalPouch files are even completely cross platform independent so you can send the same file to Windows or Macintosh users and the colour results will match.
  • DigitalPouch also checks the recipients monitor for an up-to-date display profile and indicates if it’a ViewSafe™ or colour accurate environment. This provides you and your customer complete confidence that the colour integrity of the images is being preserved when viewed by all.
