Endless color matching possibilities with ColorReader EZ:

Savage Universal Backgrounds

ColorReader EZ helps to easily and accurately measure model wardrobes, props or other set accessories to select the best matching Savage Universal Seamless Background color for your next photo shoot. You can create your own custom color palettes, as well as find coordinating colors and color schemes you can save and share with clients, colleagues – anyone!

Digital Design

ColorReader EZ provides you with accurate color data in CIELAB, Hex and RGB for any color you measure. Converting these colors is easy. Simply open the “Color Picker,” in Photoshop, input your saved CIELAB color values, click onto “Color Libraries” and choose your Pantone library from the drop-down menu. The closest color match will be highlighted on the left.

Optimize Accuracy

Tip: Flat, smooth, single-colored surfaces will net you the most accurate color-matching results from ColorReader EZ. The device should be placed flush against the surface you’re measuring (touching it – not just aimed towards it and with at least a ¼” X ¼” measurement surface)) to ensure no surrounding light can seep in which can affect the accuracy of the color reading.
