About Color Charts

Quick Color Adjustment uses color charts to evaluate the colors that are reproducible on a printer.

Every time you perform Quick Color Adjustment, a PDF for creating a color chart is printed. A PDF is assigned for each combination of a printer and paper type when the administrator configures the initial settings. Check Details in Initial Settings for the file name of the assigned PDF. The machine identifies the specified combination of a printer and paper type using the color code that is printed at the top of the chart, and measures the color boxes on the chart to evaluate the status of the printer.

There are two types of charts:

Color charts
Color chart for creating a profile
Use this color chart when registering a profile. Print the chart using the setting that does not convert the profile.
Color chart for verification
Use this chart to determine if the color adjustment result conforms to the standard. Specify to use the profile of each certification standard as the CMYK source (input) profile and the profile that is created in Quick Color Adjustment as the output printer profile, and print the chart.

  • Print the PDF to change the print settings according to your purpose.
