Unrivalled Colour Quality


Designed to deliver the highest colour quality, i1Profiler incorporates X-Rite’s i1Prism engine, unique iterative profiling technology. This smart technology tightly dials into the user’s specific printer and paper combination so professional photographers and imaging professionals can experience the highest quality colour results.


New User Interface with built in flexibility at all levels


With an all-new user interface, i1Profiler offers an unprecedented level of flexibility to address the needs of both RGB and CMYK+ workflows. i1Profiler seamlessly combines the ease of use of the wizard driven interface found in the basic mode, and the flexibility of the menu driven user interface found in the advanced mode. Whether a novice, expert or somewhere in between, i1Profiler easily adapts to any skill level and workflow needs, while maintaining the ability to produce outstanding profile quality results.


New Workflow Exchange


i1Profiler provides you with the ability to save and reuse assets or preferred settings with drag and drop functionality - you can create future profiles or share those profile creation workflows with others quickly, easily, and efficiently – without having to start from scratch. This exchange functionality also allows you to share palette information and other colour data using X-Rite’s Color Exchange Format (CxF) for the most comprehensive data exchange.


A New Level of Quality Assurance


i1Profiler is designed to provide a high level of confidence in the results thanks to the visual and measurement-based quality assurance validation and verification functions that include QA tools for soft proofing, and ColorChecker Proof reference data for visual colour assessment.




ColorChecker Proof


To help users perform a visual colour evaluation of their results using physical standards, i1Publish includes the new ColorChecker Proof, a 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target precut for direct viewing against a printed target. When used in proper lighting conditions, this offers immediate visual verification of profile output results.

If needed, the user can utilise i1Publish's unique capabilities to effectively perform adjustments such as profile optimisation or rebuild the profile taking into account a specific ambient light measurement.


ColorChecker Camera Calibration System


With the introductory ColorChecker Classic mini target and ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration software, you'll quickly and easily build custom camera profiles for Adobe® Imaging solutions including Lightroom®, Photoshop®, Photoshop Elements, Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) and Adobe Bridge.

This advanced profiling technology, which has become widely adopted in Raw workflows, provides excellent results with just the small 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target. It produces custom camera profiles that work exceptionally well, even in unusual or artificial light sources. Plus, software auto-detection will locate the target automatically. Whether shooting with just one camera or multiple cameras, photographers can easily establish an accurate colour foundation and maintain control of their colours.


PANTONE Color Manager


i1Publish includes the new PANTONE Color Manager colour palette creation and swatch bridging software. Commercial photographers will especially appreciate this functionality when shooting products or corporate brand identities that demand a specified colour match.
