About Color Management Tool Pro

Color Management Tool Pro is a color management program that minimizes the color variance among the different printers, media type, or print quality modes.
You can minimize the color variance of print images by creating the ICC profile for your environment and applying it to the image.

Depending on your printer, for users who require even higher color precision, Color Management Tool Pro allows you to perform printer calibrations that minimize variations in color reproduction when the environment is changed or as time elapses, and differences in color reproduction when multiple printers are used. You can get more stable results by calibrating the printer before you create the ICC profile.

For details on ICC profile creation and printer calibration, refer to Color Management Tool Pro help.

You can download the Color Management Tool Pro by accessing our website through the Internet.
