ColorBlind 5.0 offers an improved user interface that the company says is designed to be more intuitive. It includes online help screens and easier access to ColorBlind tools. The functions of ColorBlind 5.0 are modularized and accessible as Photoshop plugins.
ColorBlind 5.0 includes a series of modules that provide support for scanners, digital cameras, CRT and flat panel displays, multi-channel printers and a variety of measuring instruments. The first modules planned for release over the next month will be ColorBlind v5 Scan, ColorBlind v5 Print, and ColorBlind v5 View. According to Imaging Technologies, the first releases will have limited measuring instrument support.
