This application for Mac OS X allows you to display and convert the most important color systems using an elaborate and comprehensive GUI.

New in Version 1.3.6:

  • Fixed a crash when selecting certain RGB color spaces while a measurement device was attached or was getting attached. This also likely fixes a rare crash when quitting the application.
  • Custom whitepoint now always has Y value 1.
  • Remission spectra are gray when a custom whitepoint is used.
  • Illumination spectra now show the background color relative to the currently selected reference illumination.
  • Computation of undefined values of certain colorspaces now use the whitepoint again.
  • Lots of internal changes and more to come. Probably last version before something new and big.

Known issues:

Support for Leopard (10.5): The application can not be provided for Leopard at this time. The reason for this are several API-calls which are only available in 10.6 (Snow Leopard). A re-implementation would be necessary, followed by an extended testing-phase.
