OpenTINT is a Windows application designed to professionally manage paint formula books and tinting systems' recipes. The goal is to provide reliable software to complement manual colorants dispensers commonly used in paint stores and production sites. The file format is open and fully published. OpenTINT is released as freeware. Logicol also provides 2 commercial upgrades, LogiTINT and MatchTINT, both subject to a different, non-freeware, license.
Refer to the OpenTINT and LogiTINT user's manuals for more information about the applications and the license schemes.
