    Are your eyes Colour Calibrated?

    Here is a great test for photographers

    The idea is to place each line of colours into sequence. ZERO is a perfect score.

    Try it and report back what you scored

    zero, first go. Though as well as photography I also paint watercolours and I have a palette of about 80 colours/hues that I work with when painting and they are in sequence, so I probably have a bit of an advantage there. What I did was quickly sort them to their relevant ends and middle. Then I went back and concentrated only on that 1/3rd of the bar and sorted them, then I did the other end, then the middle, for each bar.

    My first try
    Based on your information, below is how your score compares to those of others with similar demographic information.

    • Your score: 3
    • Gender: Male
    • Age range: 60-69
    • Best score for your gender and age range: 0
    • Highest score for your gender and age range: 1520


    0 ( Perfect Color Acuity )
    99 ( Low Color Acuity )




    Not too bad for an oldie with glasses and an uncalibrated monitor.
    Keith.
