    ICC to excel table...

    Hi All,

    i need a solution for making an excel table from the ICC profile file.

    One of our costumer needs our distorsion values, like "Cyan 5% input is 8% output on the final print, Magenta 16% will be 21%, etc".

    They can't read or understand the ICC profile, we must send it in numbers (I don't know why he needs this, but we must do)

    Can somebody help me?

    Thank you in advance!

    Regards
    Peter

    sorry

    Sorry, maybe I'm the lama, but I don't understand.

    Can you explain with more details (maybe with screenshots?)

    Thank you in advance
    Peter

    Ahh, thanks. :)

    The problem is now that every color contains some other color.
    To understand what I want to say:

    Let's say I check at the 50% values.
    Cyan at 50% contains C: 43%, M: 1%, Y: 7%
    Yellow at 50% contains C: 2%, M: 1%, Y:46%.
    Magenta at 50% contains C:4%, M:49%, Y:1%

    Now my costumer will ask how do they set the colors to match exatcly the original picture... I know the method, but I can't explain to him.

    Is there any easy solution to explain how to modify the curves to arrange the needed colors?
    Or it's better that you explain how you do it, maybe I know it wrong.

    Tvi

    You probably ask for excel document to convert Tonal Value Increase?
    you made 50% patch in illustrator and measure 65% on print.
    i am not coder, but somebody with experience could explain better
    make hash table, look at field 65, and find field referenced.

    50% produce 65%

    you can use it match excel function
    +-+-+-+-+-+ +-+-+ +-+-+ +-+-+-+-+ +-+-+-+-+
    |p|o|w|e|r| |t|o| |b|e| |y|o|u|r| |b|e|s|t|
    +-+-+-+-+-+ +-+-+ +-+-+ +-+-+-+-+ +-+-+-+-+

    way for creating the excel

    Just use the Measuretool from X-Rite Profilemaker. You can download it and use without dongle for importing the measurements from a ICC and then save them as text file...

    The simplest would be Chromix Colorthink... or you can spend some time to create an excel spreadsheet and compute the TVI based on a tristimulus values (xyz) (free)

    colothink seems being buggy at times probably patchtool is a better solution though I think a person needs custom made solution in order to avoid to much clicking and measuring and so on
