Coraye's graphical interface is structured in 6 areas, plus a menu bar.
This area is made up of seven pictograms associated with the Coraye modules
From left to right we have:
This module is used to calibrate and characterize RGB or CMYK printing systems
This module allows: - Control of CMYK Fogra & IDEAlliance proofs - Creation of custom RGB & CMYK control ranges - Control of printer stability - Comparison between two test charts (for example IT8 or ECI
This module allows you to measure colors using your spectrophotometer. The samples can then be used for: - Finding colors (Color Finder module) - Converting to RGB or CMYK (Color Converter module) - Converting to density (Density module) - Comparing to other colors (Module Delta Finder) - Be displayed in 3D (Module Gamut Viewer) - Be added to a color table (Module Color Table) - Display its reflectance curve (Module Spectral Viewer) - etc ...
This module makes it possible to measure a light source in order to check its quality and also to adjust the cabins (viewers).
A very fun module which allows you to display and compare in 3D: - The measured samples - The colors of a table (for example PANTONE, RAL, etc ...) - The gamuts of the icc profiles - The gamuts of the jpeg and Tiff
Another very fun module to display the reflectance curves of the measured colors and the spectral curves of the illuminants. This tool can be useful for: - Analyzing the white of papers - Analyzing the quality of light sources - Training.
The Color Table module is a major module of the Coraye solution. It allows to create, edit and convert color tables. These tables will then be useful for: - Standardizing the color table exchanges between the software used by creatives (Adobe Suite or Coreldraw) and the software used by printers (RIP) for example. - Carry out color research - Create test charts for printing control. - Create personalized targets for characterization.
This area on the left displays the files imported or created by Coraye. A pictogram located to the left of the file name indicates the type of file (Colors, illuminants, color tables, icc profiles, pictures, control files, etc.)
To use the files, just check the box, select or drag & drop the file depending on how it is used.
This area located on the right, displays the information associated with the file that is selected in the left column. In the example below, the information displayed corresponds to the "Green" color sample which is selected in the left column.
This central area displays the instructions during the procedures (Calibration, quality control, measurement, etc.), the color tables and the graphic representations of the Gamut Viewer and Spectral modules.
The green zone (Online help)
Thanks to the keywords written in this search bar, you can access our online tutorials directly from your Coraye software.
In this area at the top right, you can check if your spectrophotometer is correctly recognized by Coraye and access the management of plugins via the cogwheel (Settings).
Added to this is:
Personalize your display by choosing between dark mode and light mode.
By clicking on the "Quit" button you quit the software by disconnecting, to find yourself on the connection page.
The "Open file" option allows the import of files compatible with the Coraye software. The "Quit" option closes the Coraye software without disconnecting.
Display of submenus - Observer - Illumination - Expert Mode - Screen mode
The standard observer depends on another factor than the angle of observation or the field of vision. Two values were retained by the C.I.E. (2 ° and 10 °). Observe 2 ° is used in the field of printing where the color is looked at closely (magazines e.g.) Observe 10 ° is used in the industrial field where the color is viewed from afar (cars e.g.)
This option allows you to define the default value of the illuminant that will be used when calculating the icc profiles.
The "Expert" mode allows you to unlock advanced features.
The "Screen mode" option allows you to use the light or dark mode of the graphical interface.
