Pantone ColorMunki Create

Pantone’s ColorMunki Create is a handheld display calibrator and software package for graphic designers interested in working with accurate color and creating pleasing color palettes. The package includes software that makes it easy to build complementary color palettes; it can isolate and extract colors from digital images; and it can “snap” selected colors to the nearest Pantone PMS or Goe swatch.

Among its most interesting new features are the ability to preview CMYK conversions of spot colors, preview colors under various lighting conditions, identify colors that can’t be printed, and an automatic way to synchronize its palettes to QuarkXPress and the Adobe Creative Suite applications.

All in all, it’s a tremendous value for $149.
