GretagMacbeth Eye-One ProfileMaker color management software.

GretagMacbeth is again among the first to produce a complete color management and ICC generating software and tools for digital cameras. The GretagMacbeth ColorChecker DC (digital camera) combines with the GretagMacbeth ProfileMaker to offer a complete color management solution for professional photographers.

We saw this new product at DRUPA 2004, Dusseldorf , Germany , and as soon as we can get a copy we will review it on this page, so check back later this year. In the meantime you can write and get a download of the FLAAR Preview on our publications on color management.

Then at Photokina 2004 trade show in Cologne we had a preview from Creo Leaf of their collaborative project with GretagMacbeth, using the Gretag Digital ColorChecker SG color reference card. The “SG” is the new one that replaces the earlier digital reference card (the familiar Macbeth ColorChecker stays the same, but is not used for ICC profiling).

We have only the old card, so are waiting for the new card before we can finish this evaluation. Since FLAAR has the Leaf Valeo 22 wireless, it sounds like the new Gretag color management tools and ProfileMaker 5.0 will be useful. At present we have Monaco profiling software; two licenses, one at each of the two universities where FLAAR has photo studios.
