Color Recipes

PerfX Color Recipes is the perfect tool to produce optimised "colour recipes books" which include visual colour comparisons, numerical colour recipes and colour tolerance values for each solid colour you submit to it.

To do so, PerfX Color Recipes uses ICC profiles to calculate the optimal RGB or CMYK colour match from CIE Lab values (text file) or from any "Named Colour Profile" (NCP) based on the ICC standard. You can create your CIE Lab colour database in a text file using measurements made with your spectrophotometer or use NCP profiles created with PerfX Color Recipes or any compatible ICC profile creation software.

The "colour recipes book" is saved as a PDF file for soft proofing or as a Postscript file, ready to send to the colour proofer.

The perfect tool to share your colour recipes with your clients!
