X-Rite i1Photo Pro Professional Color Management for Photographers
Key Features
  • Complete Kit for True Color Profiling
  • Accuracy from Camera to Monitor to Print
  • Software with Wizard & "Advanced" Modes
  • Hardware Spectrophotometer
X-Rite i1Photo Pro Professional Color Management for Photographers is a complete color calibration and profiling hardware & software system that lets you quickly and easily create custom profiles for cameras, monitors, RGB printers, and digital projectors. Maintain accurate colors throughout your digital imaging process, from capture to output, to achieve consistent results with neutral grays, natural skin tones, and high-quality highlight and shadow details.

Addressing the capture end is a camera calibration system based on the ColorChecker Classic mini target (with 24 colors patches that include six grayscale squares) and ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration software. Shooting the target with either one camera or multiple cameras will enable you to build custom camera profiles quickly and easily for Adobe's Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Camera Raw (ACR), and Bridge programs. These profiles will work well even in unusual conditions or with artificial light sources.

To keep your displays and printers in line with the rest of your color workflow, the industry-standard i1Pro spectrophotometer device achieves fast, accurate color measurements of for both monitors and printed material. You can capture spot colors from any surface. Capture both flash and ambient light so you can optimize your environmental conditions for performing color-critical work. The i1Pro feeds on USB power for convenient operation.

The Windows- and Mac-friendly i1Profiler software, based on the best features of its predecessors i1Match, ProfileMaker, and MonacoPROFILER, includes both a wizard for easy setup and an "advanced" mode that grants you complete control of the user-driven interface to create precise, high-quality custom color profiles for your monitors, printers, and projectors.

The software's i1Prism engine, which leverages a unique iterative profiling technology, tightly dials into the user's specific printer and paper combination so professional photographers can experience the highest quality color results. i1Profiler lets you save and reuse assets and settings – and share them with others – with the ease of drag-and-drop operation. Palette information and other color data is shared using X-Rite's Color Exchange Format.

For quality assurance, i1Profiler includes visual and measurement-based validation and verification functions. Also included with i1Photo Pro is the ColorChecker proof target that's precut for direct viewing against a printed target. The 24-patch target provides immediate visual verification of profile output results.

The bundled Pantone Color Manager software dynamically keeps all digital Pantone color libraries up to date and ready to use in Adobe and Quark applications. i1Profiler software is tightly integrated with Pantone Color Manager to give you seamless access to all Pantone colors, for precise matching of spot colors and accurate reproduction of same. Multiple color-space selections are available. The Pantone Color Management software can be used to ensure the faithful reproduction of brand-specific color for corporate photography projects.
