All the recipes have been scanned after baking. And that the colorimeter was set to scan at light levels comparable to diffused natural daylight.
So do not jump to conclusions about that color sample that you just made. Bake a sample first. Then view your baked color sample during the day, around noon is best.

First, you blend the HUE MIX. Then, you tone the HUE MIX by adding either black or white.
STEP #1: Make the HUE MIX:
STEP #2: Make the SHADE:

If you're into video instruction, Staedtler posted a terrific video explaining the process on YouTube.
We can find your username, but we don't store passwords.
Some people use the same password for EVERYTHING and we need to protect them from themselves! For security reasons passwords are processed with a one way hash function. So we can only compare user passwords but we don't know them.
We are in the process of creating a recovery tool that will use a valid mail account to sent a new generated password. But it's not ready yet.
But we can change your password by hand.
Email Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Forgot ColorMixr Username or Password". Use the email address that you used for registration. If you can't remember just give me your name and we'll try to figure it out.
Please give me at least 8 hours to respond. I've got to sleep sometime...
The image is probably just too big. Try reducing the size to 2 or 4 megabytes. You don't need all that detail to sample the colors anyway.
Android: You can reduce image sizes from within the Gallery. Just tap on the photo you want to reduce and find the 3 dot menu on the right top of the photo. Choose Edit. When the image loads in the Editor, select Adjustment from the bottom menu, then Resize. Then save it as 'medium' file. The smaller file will be saved in your Gallery under 'Studio'.
iOS: Try the app Image Size or do a search on the iTunes App store for another well rated image reduction app.
