How it works:
Reliable color quality requires accurate profiles for all the devices in your workflow:

Step 1: Attach a colorimeter or a spectrophotometer to your monitor, and use the wizard-like interface to create a monitor profile for your CRT or LCD* in less than 5 minutes. The instrument will optimize the brightness level to achieve maximum dynamic range.

Step 2: Create a profile for your scanner or digital camera using the appropriate target. Scan, crop the the target, and name! Determine profile quality and accuracy with detailed statistics.

Step 3: Choose a target patch from an extensive list, and print it using your output device. Measure the patch set using a spectrophotometer. MonacoPROFILER creates the profile, and allows you to control the ink limiting,black generation, and advanced UCR/GCR

Step 4: Control the quality of your output profile with expert editing features. Use curves to adjust lightness, saturation and channel output. The more advanced selective color and fine-tuning tools provide ultimate color control.

Step 5: You are now ready to use your profiles in ICC-compliant applications and digital proofing systems. Optimize your output to photographic and inkjet output devices!
