                Comments about Kodak Color Separation Guide and Gray Scale-Small (Q-13):

                I'm an associate fine art conservator, in this field exact photo documentation of each step of the process is crucial. This 8 inch color separation guide is small and light enough it can be stuck onto an easel anywhere with almost anything, yet it's large enough to read easily. The greyscale is on a separate card so can be used at the same time, no need to reshoot.

                The stiff construction of the card is a bonus for those of us who are hard on our tools- and the envelope it arrived in - perfect protection when you need to take the cards on location.

                      These work great for when I am taking photos of my paintings. Having the white, black, and range of chromas allows my photographs to come out without needing too much color correcting... and the color correcting I do is easily calibrated.

                        I purchased this to used as an aid when when setting up the color for an inkjet printer that was printing very weak greens. After calibrationg my monitor and scanning this scale I was able to get the printer to consistently produce good photos.

                        Comments about Kodak Color Separation Guide and Gray Scale-Small (Q-13):

                        I try to always use these in my photographs of inspections of equipment and test items. This helps me maintain consistency of color between photos (so any variations are due to color deterioration from UV, etc.) and also provides a scale for making measurements of deterioration. I use the large one (not this product) for lab photography and the small (this one) for field and on-site photography.

                              In the digital world it is easy to misjudge what is the right color you expect in a finished product. This eliminates the guess work. Match the guide and the rest takes care of itself.
