    Colour Card

    I read in another post Colin saying"
    '- Shooting a calibrated colour card and then using that to build a custom camera profile'

    How does one build a custom camera profile using the colour card?

    Hi Rod,

    Dead Easy - with the Passport Colour Checker, one simply runs a program, and then drag/drop the shot with the colour checker in it onto the program, and it does the rest.

    Being able to USE the profile though assumes that you're using ACR (Adobe Camera RAW) - not sure about other converters.

    Nice write up. Essentially, it's an overview of why colour profiling is desireable, and "buy the passport system" (which I totally agree with).
