A Little Success Story – Color Converter

Let me share a little success story with you. One of the most successful commercial products I have created with RunRev is Color Converter. I released Color Converter 1.0 almost 3 years ago and since that time Economy-x-Talk has sold numerous licenses for this product.
During those years I spent a few 100 euro on Revolution licenses and spent about two weeks programming. During the past 3 years I earned back my investment multiple times. RunRev is the ideal development environment for this little application. The way RunRev converts pictures to imageData makes complex analyses really easy. RunRev allows me to write a complex tool with minimum effort.

Unfortunately, there is one persistent problem. Almost all customers giving feedback on this application complain about the lack of multiple monitors support. It is impossible to make a snapshot of a secondary monitor and the mouseColor function reports incorrect values outside the main screen. For these features, I am completely dependent on RunRev Ltd. and I can only hope these bugs will be fixed. It has to be said, when the “answer color” command appeared to be broken, RunRev was quick to fix this, which kind of saved my product.

Nonetheless, it is easy to move a window to another monitor to allow Color Converter to do it’s thing and the bugs don’t stop people from using my little utility every day. Yesterday, I released Color Converter 3.0 and I’m sure it is going to be another success. This new version adds the capability to resize pictures to it’s feature set.

Economy-x-Talk Releases Color Converter 3.0

NIJMEGEN (THE NETHERLANDS), 3 September 2010 — Economy-x-Talk has released Color Converter 3.0. Color Converter is a low-cost colour conversion tool for professional designers and everyone who needs to work with colour on a computer. This tool encodes colour values from and to any of the following colour spaces: CMYK, H.Lab, HEX/HTML, HSV, RAL, RGB, XYZ and X11 Colour Names. Additionally, it provides an RGB-based brightness value.

Color Converter can also analyse any area of your (primary) screen and display a colour histogram based on the results of the analysis. A long list of X11 colour names is easy to search and colour names can be converted to all other colour spaces with a click of the mouse. With the release of Color Converter 3, we have added the ability to resize pictures.

“We started with a very tiny utility, with RAL-to-RGB conversion only” says Mark Schonewille, spokesman of Economy-x-Talk, “and have developed the software into a light-weight but sophisticated conversion tool. I’m really delighted to see how popular this programme has become amongst both amateur and professional graphical designers.” He adds: “With the addition of the resizing tools, Color Converter has not become more than just a colour analysis tool. It has become really a handy utility that you will be using all day long.”

Color Converter 3.0 can be downloaded from it’s own website. The software is available for MS Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Color Converter 3 is free a free update for current license holders of Color Converter 2.
