      Color Worksheet

      The Color Worksheet is a spreadsheet that understands color. Rows in the worksheet are for profiles, images, color lists, and workflow information; and columns are for color transformations, comparisons, and delta-E calculations.

      2D graphing is great for learning and explaining the concept of color gamut, but 3D graphs are essential to truly understand what's going on and to analyze colors and device behavior. With the latest grapher, ColorThink quickly and seamlessly moves between 2D and 3D modes.

      2D Graphing
      • Illustrate color gamuts and reproduction issues

      • Graphically display gamut differences and potential problem colors using overlay feature
      • Quickly save graphs to the desktop for use in other applications
      3D Graphing
      • Illustrate color gamuts and reproduction issues with the greatest accuracy by seeing the whole gamut from ink black to paper white, not just the edges
      • Evaluate profile and device capabilities and suitability for proofing
      • Visualize color differences due to media changes, dry-down shifts, or measurement issues
      • Plot image colors as a cloud of pixels and overlay a printer gamut for comparison
      • Display Lab-region gridlines for gamut size perspective
      • Constrain profile gamut's color channels to determine optimal ink limiting levels
