    \$\begingroup\$ pantone.com/color-finder?q=%23FFC997 - check this out, there are no similar numbers for an example colour. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 9, 2017 at 14:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ You may also use background of each image as a colour picker source, this will give you numbers in the colour space which you need (RGB is not colour space). \$\endgroup\$ Feb 9, 2017 at 14:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ Assuming that Pantone site uses sRGB for their queries I could not find 77-9 C at all using source image. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 9, 2017 at 14:52

    \$\begingroup\$ Reading the "about" page for the project, one could get the impression that the imitation of a Pantone chart is more about artistic statement than actual color theory. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 9, 2017 at 20:30

Check a special Pantone booklet: https://www.pantone.com/skintone-guide

To get the RGB values of that page you can grab a color picker and measure it. For example on windows, this is a useful tool: http://www.color-picker.de/en

Of course we are relying that the images have the proper color profile embedded.

You could also open them in Photowhatever and take a reading there.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do I need to buy the skintone-guide or is there a free pdf from where I could see the RGB values \$\endgroup\$
