Unrivaled Color Quality

Designed to deliver the highest color quality, i1Profiler incorporates X-Rite’s i1Prism engine’s unique iterative profiling technology. This smart technology tightly dials into the user’s specific printer and paper combination so professional photographers can experience the highest quality color 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 a photographer’s workflow. i1Profiler seamlessly combines the ease of use of the wizard-driven interface found in the basic mode, and the flexibility of the menu-driven 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 form scratch. This exchange functionality also allows you to share palette information and other color 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 give photographers high confidence in their 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 color assessment.

ColorChecker Proof

To help users perform a visual color evaluation of their results using physical standards, i1Photo Pro 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 photographer can utilize i1Photo Pro’s unique capabilities to effectively perform adjustments such as profile optimization 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.

The advanced profiling technology, which has become widely adopted in raw workflows, provides excellent results with just the small 24-path 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 color foundation and maintain control of their colors.

Pantone Color Manager

i1Photo Pro includes the new Pantone Color Manager color palette creation and swatch bridging software. Commercial photographers will especially appreciate this functionality when shooting products or corporate brand identities that demand specified color match.
