Color Measurement and Analysis

General specifications

Input file types Adobe Swatch Exchange (“.ase”) file o Supported color spaces: RGB, CMYK, and L*a*b* (D50). Because an ASE file can contain swatches in all color spaces, PatchTool will create separate files for each color space. Patches can also be exported in ASE format. CxF Version-1 o File extensions: Generic *.cxf files. In addition, *.xml files will also be opened and checked for compatibility with the CxF1 format. o Supported data types (reflectance data only): spectrum, L*a*b* CxF Version-2 (CxF2) o File extensions: Generic *.cxf files. In addition, *.xml files will also be opened and checked for compatibility with the CxF2 format. o Supported CxF2 content types: Color (i.e. a Color Collection), Palette/ColorSet, ColorQualityControl (Quality-Control data with Standard and Measurement) o Supported data types (reflectance data only): spectrum, XYZ, L*a*b*, L*C*h, xyY, AdobeRGB, sRGB, RGB (non-defined), CMYK (non-defined) o Supported Illuminants: A, C, D50, D55, D65, D75, D93, E, F2, F7, F11 CxF Version-3 (CxF3) o File extensions: Generic *.cxf files as well as files with content-specific data, such as *.axf, *.cmxf, *.dmxf, *.dpsf, *.dpxf, *.duxf, *.dwxf, *.lxf, *.mxf, *.oxf, *.pwxf, *.pxf, *.rmxf, *.sxf, and *.txf. In addition, *.xml files will be opened and checked for compatibility with the CxF3 format. o Supported top level Resources: Object Collection, Color Specification Collection o Supported device-independent data types: Reflectance Spectrum, L*a*b*, L*C*h, XYZ, xyY, AdobeRGB, sRGB o Supported device-dependent data types: RGB, CMYK o Non-supported elements: Custom Resources, Profile Collection, Tag Collection, and others o Spectral range: Start between 360 nm and 400 nm, end between 700 nm and 730 nm, with 10 nm increments and a minimum of 31 measurements. o Supported Illuminants: A, C, D50, D55, D60, D65, D75, 9300, E, F2, F7, F11 CGATS o File extensions: *.txt and *.csv files are preferred. PatchTool will also open color lists saved using other file extensions, as the program will search for standard file tags and color space data names. In particular, PatchTool will open files opened in spreadsheet programs and resaved with the “.csv” extension. o Supported data types: XYZ, xyY, L*a*b*, L*C*h, OSA UCS Ljg, RGB, CMYK, spectral data o Accepted data delimiters: Tab-Delimited-Format (TDF), Comma-Separated-Values (CSV; either “,” or “;”), Space delimited data o Spectral data: Scaled either between zero and one, typical of files generated with GretagMacbeth software, or between 0 and 100%, typical of files generated by X-Rite software. o Spectral range: From 380 nm to 730 nm, with 10 nm increments, typical of files generated with GretagMacbeth software, or from 400 nm to 700 nm, typical of files generated by X-Rite software. o RGB encoding: 8 bit, 15 bit, or 16 bit format, or scaled between 0 and 100%. o Recognizes ECI2002 color lists; switch between the Measured, Random, or Visual layouts. o Recognizes IT8.7/4 color lists; switch between the Measured, Random, or Visual layouts. Plain text o File extensions: *.txt and *.csv files are preferred. PatchTool will also open color lists saved using other file extensions, as the program will search for standard file tags and color space data names. In particular, PatchTool will open files opened in spreadsheet programs and resaved with the “.csv” extension. o Supported data types: XYZ, xyY, L*a*b*, L*C*h, OSA UCS Ljg, RGB, CMYK, spectral data o Accepted data delimiters: Tab-Delimited-Format (TDF), Comma-Separated-Values (CSV; either “,” or “;”), Space delimited data o Spectral data: Scaled either between zero and one, or between 0 and 100%. o Spectral range: From 380 nm to 730 nm, or from 400 nm to 700 nm, with 10 nm increments. o RGB encoding: 8 bit, 15 bit, or 16 bit format, or scaled between 0 and 100%. o See Appendix-A of the Help manual for detailed information on plain text file format. PatchTool Compare file o Any exported Compare file obtained from "Select Compare", "Display-Check", or "Clip Check". PNG image file (New in V-5.0) o Supported image formats: RGB; 8 bit o Maximum image size: none.  However, because each pixel becomes one patch, opening large images (64KB+ pixels) is not recommended, since success will depend on system resources. TIFF image file o Supported image formats: TIFF RGB, CMYK and L*a*b*; all in 8 bit and 16 bit o Maximum image size: none (New in V-5.0). However, because each pixel becomes one patch, opening large images (64KB+ pixels) is not recommended, since success will depend on system resources.

It is better used to evaluate color differences for near neutral colors, typically with a Chroma (C*) of less than seven. Ch is referred to with various symbols, such as Ec, F*, or s.

The out-of-gamut values are clipped only for display purposes. Negative RGB values and values higher than 255 can also be used for input. They are processed as per the encoding algorithm described in the PIMA 7667:2001 Standard: “Photography – Electronic still picture imaging – Extended sRGB color encoding – e-sRGB” (PIMA: Photographic and Imaging Manufacturers Association).

Example-1: The MDSVSENSOR2, which is part of the SVII-PRO-KIT sold by NEC for their wide gamut Spectraview displays, such as the PA271W model, is compatible with PatchTool; please consult the Display-Check section of the Help manual for more information. Example-2: The Eye-One Display offered with HP DreamColor monitors is NOT compatible with PatchTool. i1Display Pro colorimeter (X-Rite retail version, part #EODIS3-XR). Generic models sold by other companies (third parties, or OEM, part #EODIS-OEM) should also be compatible. At this time we cannot say if we will support or not custom models sold by other companies since separate agreements with these parties may be required.

Requires a PDF file type reader. A free “Acrobat Reader” application, from Adobe, is available at the following Web site: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ . Note: Acrobat Reader is now available in two distribution modes, called “tracks”: “Continuous track” and “Classic track”. The Continuous track, offered by default, is a “cloud” version which gets updated as required, without user control. The Classic track is similar to the older program version which gets updated at fixed intervals. If you prefer the older version, you can locate the download file by searching for “DC Classic Track Release” with your favorite search engine.
