New Skintones Custom Chart/Swatch
It’s a better quality Image (larger) and the RGB & CMYK numbers are correct. The old one has some mistakes. Plus a small tutorial on how to make a custom swatch out the above chart.
I hope you find this of some use.

THANK YOU soooo much. I am color blind and rely on things like this very very much. I takes some of the work load off my wife's eyes also.
Dan's free chapter PDF on colour correction by the numbers can be a real eye opener for many people who have only ever known colour monitors and visual edits. I can still remember the days when I worked on a high end prepress system that only had a monotone (gray) display. Early drum scanners did not even have this much visual aid and the first time the scanner operator saw the image was when it was output or perhaps on a softproofing station - after the scan was over.
Also due to my print background - I do not feel the need to use skin tone swatches or anything like that. Once you know the basic formula for evaluating and editing skintones - you will never need to refer to charts again...the image and your intuition will lead the way.
Skintones are hard - different areas have different ratios and hues/tones and there are many subtle interactions and variations etc.
Here is a link to a previous post of mine on the subject:
And a related article from my site:
Thank you so much Stephen. You will never know how much this group has helped. Like my kids would say..."This group is the bomb". (I think that is a good thing !!!)
I'm terribly sorry to bump a super old thread, but I'm wondering if anyone has the original zip?
I'd love to have that.
I know I'm not going to be nominated for noob of the year by bumping a two year old post
