I use Color Checker Passport, but any other similar tool is OK. I chose this one because it goes with the software. I also recommend purchasing it as a bundle with display unit used for the monitor calibrating. Keep in mind: display calibration is essential
First you need to take a shot of the object (product, model's face, etc) that has been placed in the spot next to the color checker. Both of them need to be positioned in the same lighting condition.
Save the picture in DNG format and create the profile representing this lighting condition and specific.
Now it's the time to start using Color Checker software. Drag a DNG image into the image pane. Color Checker passport will attempt to automatically detect the color checker in the image. If it fails, you need to manually place the crop marks. Zoom in if necessary.
Create the profile for the batch processing of multiple shots for the same lighting condition.
You'll save a lot of time and get color accurate photographs adjusting them in batch process.
