Getting the best results from your color scans
- Flat, smooth, single-colored surfaces will net you the most accurate color-matching results from ColorReader.
- Place the device flush against the surface you’re measuring (touching it –not just aimed towards it) to ensure no surrounding light can seep in which can affect the accuracy of the color reading.
- Textured surfaces like stucco, nubby woven fabrics and high-sheen surfaces can affect color accuracy, as can gradient color surfaces.
- If measuring a color on a pattern, make sure the portion of the color you are measuring is large enough (at least ¼” X ¼”/ 0.635 X 0.635 cm) so that the lens covers the entire surface.
