X-Rite, Incorporated, the world leader in color management, measurement and communication technologies, recently launched XritePhoto.com. Designed for photographers as both a colour resource center and online community, the all-new website offers anyone involved in digital photography a robust and interactive learning resource, as well as a fun place to learn, explore, and exchange ideas as they relate to colour.
A virtual showcase for every level of photographer and interest, XritePhoto.com is designed to provide easy access to tips, tricks, tools and technology about colour management, and the impact colour has on the digital workflow. A good example is the online colour IQ test, an easy way for photographers to learn how well they see colour by dragging and dropping colour chips into order according to hue. The site offers an instant test score, and is easy to share and pass along to colleagues and friends.
"We created XritePhoto.com as a true community resource where every photographer can access all things colour. Visitors can participate in our blog, test their colour vision, sign up for a webinar, access our colour experts, view educational videos, learn from our Coloratti pro community, or enter on-going contests, " states X-Rite's Strategic Marketing Director, Photo Liz Quinlisk.
