mColorBook is a digital munsell book of color. mColorBookLite is the LITE version of mColorBook.

In the munsell color order system, colors are ordered based on three attributes: hue, value and chroma. All three attributes are intended to be perceptually uniform. With equal hue or equal value or equal chroma or other rules, you can easily create harmonious color combinations.

  • Viewing Modes
    The ability to see color in 3 dimensions (hue, value and chroma) is important to many. With mColorBook it's a blast. 3 viewing modes are provided to assist you:
    Constant Hue;
    Constant Value;
    Constant Chroma.

  • Granularity
    With mColorBook you have access to tens of thousands of subtle colors which vary in:
    hue steps down to 0.5 (Lite version limit them to 5);
    value steps down to 0.1 (Lite version limit them to 1);
    chroma steps down to 0.5 (Lite version limit them to 2).

  • Navigation
    By using slider, menu items and toolbar items you can navigate to any constant hue (or value or chroma) page freely.

  • Detail color info
    The build in color inspector allows you to view detail color info (Munsell, RGB, HEX and CMYK color values) of any color sample you point to. Also you can easily copy the color values with handy shortcuts.

  • Color accuracy
    mColorBook is not just a colorful book, with its build in color management, it is dedicated to show you the color that should be. The color samples are rendered in color space defined by the current profile of your monitor. And color values are displayed in color spaces of profiles according to your selection.
