Simplify the Color Matching Process
Even with all the right equipment, color matching can be a tedious process - from monitor adjustment to determining the best retouch software and printer settings - achieving an accurate print takes a great deal of time. Quick Color Match greatly simplifies the process by automatically adjusting to the ideal monitor, retouching software, and printer settings so you can focus on editing your photos and print your work quickly and hassle-free. Simply drag and drop your photo in the Quick Color Match window to automatically start the process.
Quick Color Match automatically adjusts your ColorEdge monitor's gain, brightness, gamma, and color space (Adobe RGB) and creates a profile for these settings that is optimized for your selected printer paper type. You can also adjust the brightness and white point manually.
Retouch Software Settings
Dragging and dropping your photo to the Quick Color Match window automatically opens Adobe Photoshop and adjusts to EIZO's recommended color settings based on the printer and paper being used.
With either Canon Print Studio Pro or Epson Print Layout print plugin installed, Quick Color Match will automatically select the print profile and color and soft proofing options recommended by EIZO. Simply choose the paper size, type, and quality and you can quickly print your photo without worrying about navigating through several windows of technical settings and options.
