Maybe I’m suddenly colorblind? I really struggle matching colors when I test.
If the photo is too hard to read, I’m happy to retest and try again.
Btw, yes I am cycling.

Sometimes it can help to look at the colors against the back of one of the other cards. Viewing it against the white card can help as it gives you more room then the little bit of white space on the color card.

Agree with TexasDomer readings look spot on

I sometimes look into the vile when putting it on top of the test paper...
shifting it over the colours and looking for where the difference is the least.

Always use daylight though...artificial light makes it more difficult to compare.

I am red/green color blind. I eventually learned to read the API kit pretty well with the help of a "normie" with good color vision. The colors in the test tubes don't match up exactly with the colors on the chart. Read on a white background, and keep at it. You'll get more comfortable with it as time goes on and you read more different colors.

Yes, daylight definitely helps! Good tip!
