ColorTRUE - Calibration for Mobile Devices

SKU: CT001

Free Download:

So, you think the colour on your tablet or phone looks pretty good, right? Try this. Hold your portable device up next to your desktop. Are your colours too pumped up or have they lost the level of saturation you expected to see? Are your shadows blocked up? Do your images look different on your tablet compared to your desktop? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s time to calibrate with ColorTRUE– the new colour management app that delivers true tablet-to-desktop screen matching (from the leader in colour calibration and profiling, X-Rite Pantone). Now you can show your photos with absolute confidence knowing they are colour accurate.


The process is incredibly simple. Using a supported X-Rite measurement device*, ColorTRUE quickly and easily measures the colour of your Apple® iOS or Android® device, creating a custom profile. This profile is then automatically applied to your images in the ColorTRUE Image Gallery (which are seamlessly linked to your existing albums). Now all your images are displayed accurately! With ColorTRUE, you can be assured your images are showing their TRUE colours.



ColorTRUE is the only mobile calibration app that includes unique colour tools to ensure that your images are displayed with consistently accurate colour:


  • Before and After – lets you easily toggle between calibrated and uncalibrated images to see the difference
  • Ambient Light Compensation – accurately view images no matter what type of lighting you are in
  • Print Simulation – preview your images with printer profile and rendering intent so there are no surprises
  • ICC Profiling – easily reassign correct working colour spaces (sRGB, Adobe® RGB, ProPhoto RGB)
  • White Point Selection – for optimal tablet-to-desktop match, choose between D65, D50 and Native


ColorTRUE Aware Apps – Look for the Icon


Unlike your laptop or desktop operating system, iOS and Android operating systems do not have system wide colour management capabilities. Therefore, each app must apply colour profiles individually. Through X-Rite’s ColorTRUE Aware Partner Program, we are collaborating with other app developers to allow them to seamlessly access your ColorTRUE profile within their app by using X-Rite’s mobile colour management software development kit (SDK). This way, any ColorTRUE Aware app can display colours accurately and consistently. So help us spread the word by telling your favorite app developers you want them to be ColorTRUE Aware!

Perfect Colour. Anywhere and Everywhere.

Perfect colour. For colour perfectionists on the go.


Mobile phones and tablets aren’t perfect. They may not display the colours in your photos as accurately as you’d like. Their colours can drift over time. The backlight may be way too bright. And changing ambient light conditions during different times of day or in different locations will affect what you’re seeing. Mentally compensating for an uncalibrated mobile device is nearly impossible, and at the very least is incredibly frustrating. What you see on your mobile screen(s) should match your laptop or desktop screen. With ColorTRUE, now it’s easy!


Mobile Screen Calibration


In our world, colour perfection is not too much to ask for. ColorTRUE delivers unrivaled mobile on-screen colour accuracy and is incredibly easy and fast to use. As soon as you set a supported X-Rite calibration device on your screen, ColorTRUE begins its true magic delivering a custom profile in minutes!


Calibrate and share seamlessly

ColorTRUE automatically stores your profile in our X-Rite Profile Cloud for iOS users, and locally on Android™ devices, so it can seamlessly be used by your other ColorTRUE Aware apps. Spread the word to your favorite app developer to include ColorTRUE capabilities!

Image Gallery – Perfectly Displayed Images

ColorTRUE comes equipped with an incredible image viewer. With its unrivaled features, you’ll obtain a true mobile-to-desktop screen match so you can confidently show your photos knowing they are colour accurate.


Before and After – Toggle back and forth to instantly see how calibration improves the colour accuracy of your mobile device. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your colour- corrected image.
Ambient Light Compensation – Both your surrounding ambient light condition (that can vary by location and time of day) as well as your screen brightness affect the way you perceive colour and contrast on your mobile device. ColorTRUE allows you to adjust to any lighting condition and automatically monitors the screen brightness setting, factoring it into the ambient light compensation adjustment. So go ahead, increase or decrease the brightness level of your tablet or phone and ColorTRUE will make sure the appropriate compensation is applied -- automatically.
Print Simulation – Preview your images to see how they will look when printed on various output devices. This feature allows you to choose a generic printer profile and rendering intent. Or if you want to import your custom profile, it’s easy to do so through iTunes®. Now you can show your clients exactly what their image will look like on that special paper and eliminate unpleasant surprises.
ICC Profile – Tired of losing your embedded profile or converting all your images to sRGB for mobile viewing? Now you can easily assign sRGB, Adobe® RGB, or ProPhoto RGB to your images so they all displayed as you intended.
White Point – In order to minimize the colour difference between your mobile device and your desktop or laptop display, it is important to use the same white point setting across all of them. ColorTRUE provides three white point settings - choose between D65, D50 and Native.
