X-Rite ColorChecker Passport

X-Rite knows how important color accuracy and responsive workflow is for professional photographers.

X-Rite Photo Marketing announces that a free software update is now available for the ColorChecker Passport. ColorChecker Passport combines three photographic targets into one pocket-sized protective, self-standing case that adjusts to any scene. Together with the included camera calibration software, photographers get the ultimate in functionality, flexibility and portability.

New features of ColorChecker Passport software v1.0.2 include the following:

  • Now fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3
  • Improved color extraction for better profile accuracy
  • Improved patch detection (eliminates errors in cases where the luminance of light-colored patches meets or exceeds the luminance of the white patch)

“X-Rite knows how important color accuracy and responsive workflow is for professional photographers,” said Mark Rezzonico, Vice President, MAC Group/X-Rite Photo Marketing. “That’s why ColorChecker Passport software was updated the same month Lightroom 3 was made available and is free to our customers.”

X-Rite’s ColorChecker Passport device is a powerful “capture to edit” color solution for any photographer looking for more accurate, consistent color and creative flexibility in their digital photography Raw workflow.

Whether shooting with just one camera, or multiple cameras, photographers can easily establish an accurate color foundation and accurately maintain control of their colors.
