Features


The ColorChecker target is an array of 24 scientifically formulated colors that has been the leading industry color reference target for more than 40 years. It is designed to deliver true-to-life color reproduction so that photographers and filmmakers can predict and control how color will look under any illumination.

Each of the 24 colors found on a ColorChecker target represents the actual color of natural objects, such as human skin tone, foliage and blue sky, and reflects light just like its real-world counterpart. Since these colors exemplify the color of their counterparts in the natural world and reflect light the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum, the squares will match the colors of representative samples of natural objects under any illumination, and with any color reproduction process. Each solid patch is formulated individually to produce a pure, flat, rich color.

ColorChecker targets have been used by Color perfectionists for the past decade to create custom DNG profiles for Adobe Lightroom® and Photoshop® workflows. You can also build custom ICC camera profiles for use in Capture One® (or other ICC compatible software) when you combine ColorChecker targets with Calibrite ColorChecker Camera Calibration software. You’ll get accurate color at capture based on specific lighting, camera and lens combination during any given shoot, saving valuable time in edit.

Taking advantage of a ColorChecker target is easy. Simply include the ColorChecker in your photo or video capture and then later, while editing use it to compare, measure and analyze differences in color reproduction in any color rendition system.

The ColorChecker can help you make global corrections based on accurate information. If you shoot a large number of images that all require the same color correction, you know that editing a few key photos and applying your changes can sometimes change colors you didn’t intend to be changed. A shot of the ColorChecker captured under the same lighting as your images will provide a point of reference, so you can see exactly how changes will affect the rest of your colors before you apply them.

This objective standard will help you avoid costly mistakes and trial-and-error color adjustments while editing your images or color grading.

Colour management is critical to my creative process. Remove the guesswork from how people will perceive your art and focus on what really matters.

Don Komarechka

One of the great joys of photography for me is the edit process. It fills me with joy and excitement to see what’s possible. Starting with the best possible image and making sure it appears the same across my desktop and laptop is critical. I don’t have the time nor energy to guess that the creative decisions I make will be accurately represented.

Alan Shapiro

A color managed workflow is the cornerstone of any digital photography workflow. I would go so far as to say that a high-end Adobe RGB monitor and a top-notch colorimeter are as important if not more important than what camera and lens you use to capture the image if you care about color.

Michael Clark

We spend an inordinate amount of time and money on the capture and processing side of our craft. Ultimately, however, we view the fruit of our work as a print or a slide show or on the web. It is critical to ensure that what I have spent time and money on to process, looks the same way in print or on the web and there is only one way to guarantee this and that is with Color Management.
