PatchTool - Multi-purpose utility for viewing, manipulating, averaging, converting, and exporting color lists.

Multi-purpose utility for viewing, manipulating, averaging, converting, and exporting color lists.

PatchTool is designed to visualize, manipulate, re-order, average, compare (with statistics), convert, and export color lists in a color-managed environment. You can export a list as an image, in plain text format, or in a CGATS compatible file format; you can also export lists as color catalogues to be used within the BabelColor CT&A program.

PatchTool is a multi-purpose tool for averaging, manipulating, viewing, converting and exporting color lists.

With its Gamut Tools you can convert colors using one or two ICC profiles, check if a color list will be clipped by a profile conversion, determine the gamut volume of a profile, and generate fixed pitch color lists.

Its Display Check tool enables you to measure your display characteristics using a built-in set of patches, or the patches from any opened color list. Supports the Datacolor Spyder2 and Spyder3, the MonacoOPTIX (X-Rite) DTP94, and the GretagMacbeth (X-Rite) Eye-One Pro and Eye-One Display.

PatchTool features :

- Visualize color lists as color patches (color spaces: xyY, XYZ, L*a*b*, L*C*h*, RGB, CMYK, spectral data)
- Import color lists saved in industry standard file formats(CGATS, CxF V-1 and V-2)
- Import user-defined lists created with spreadsheets or word processors
