Finally, Raw and ICC profile creation in one application!

If critical color accuracy from your scans or digital camera files is required, you need basICColor input. Analyzing the capture results of a camera target determines the reproduction characteristics of the camera. This helps eliminate unnecessary color retouching. Professional results can be achieved with higher data quality as well as quicker turn-around times. ICC camera profiles can both be "tuned" and the workflow automated, achieving optimal workflows. basICColor input distinguishes automatically between RAW or TIFF / JPEG format and creates DCP or ICC profiles with perfect shadow detail.


Notable Features

  • Creation of DCPs (Digital Camera Profiles) for the Adobe® Raw Workflow
  • Creation of ICC profiles for cameras and scanners (JPEG and TIFF)
  • ICC profiles specially for Capture One straight from your raw image
  • Multi-Target Profiling
  • 4 types of profiles: Art Repro / Archival; Photography; Capture One; Scanner
  • Optimal gray balance e.g. with the Munsell Linear Grayscale target
  • Spot Color Correction
  • Spectral computation of illumination spectra  reduces metameric errors
  • Support for all common Scanner and Camera Targets, including, IT8/7.1, IT8/7.2 HutchColor Target, Munsell targets, ColorChecker, ColorChecker DC, Digital ColorChecker SG und basICColor dcam target+
  • Quality control after profiling, e.g. for Metamorfoze
  • Support for adding individual color targets


Multi-Target Profiling

This unique feature of basICColor input allows to combine several target shots into one profile. Reproduction of paints, textiles, non-standard media and use of diverse colorants requires additional characterization. The resulting ICC input profile thus reduces metameric failure.


Beside the ICC profiling input detects (almost) every RAW format and creates DCPs, which can be used in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom immediately.

Spotcolor Correction

Whether including a logo color, corporate identity element, or architectural element which demands absolute matching, the unique qualities of basICColor input will aid in achieving best quality results from the digital photographic image.

  • basICColor scan Target Reflective target for profiling scanners (part# 120556)
  • basICColor rescan Target The basICColor rescan target is a precise reflective printed scanner and digital camera target for digitization of printed material. This target avoids sensor metamerism which occurs when scanners / digital cameras are profiled with conventional, photographically produced targets (eg, IT8, HutchColor). The basICColor rescan target has batch reference data for basICColor input. (Part# 130653)

Explanation: In general, a target material type is good for scanning similar types of materials. Many photographic targets are produced on photographic media, so they train the scanner or camera how to see photographic media colors and therefore are best when used with other similar photographic media. Some of the basICColor targets (ie: the ReScan target) are made using offset litho printing, training the scanner to see offset printing ink colors and are best for scanning offset-printed materials.
