The Color Converter module allows you to convert a measured color (or imported from a table) to RGB or CMYK
When you have measured a color with your spectrophotometer, you may need to convert it to RGB, CMYK, or LAB.
Color Finder does this for you and also displays Delta E values after conversion to indicate if the color is reproducible.
How to use Color Converter to convert color with ICC profile
Measure or import the colors to convert, then the icc profile to use to perform the conversion.
For example, I select two ICC profiles (AdobeRGB1998 and Isocoated_v2) and two .spc files (2 colors measured previously.
Scroll down to the " Color Converter " menu in the bottom right bar, then drag the icc profile to its location in the Color Converter menu.
Select the rendering intent of the file and the Delta E formula
Your color is automatically converted to CMYK or RGB, depending on its color space.
Same example but with an RGB profile, the result will be in RGB.
Another example: you can use a paper simulation profile to do the conversion.
If the Delta E is close to 0, it means your color is reproducible on the printer with this paper.
So if your Delta E is greater than 2, it means your color cannot be accurately reproduced.
In the example below, the Delta E is less than 1, the Tomato Red color is therefore reproducible on the Epson SC-P7500 printer
If you don't have a profile to convert your colors, you have a choice of three profiles:
Adobe RGB 1998
CMYK (Isocoated_v2_eci.icc) corresponding to the Fogra 39 standard
