GMG ColorPlugin 1.3 makes manual colour corrections and tedious work-arounds redundant and provides enormous time savings at the pre-press stage and in package printing.
Colour management expert GMG has expanded its plugin for Adobe Photoshop in Version 1.3. With the new solution, based on GMG OpenColor separation profiles, now colour accurate separations from RGB into Multicolor colour spaces are possible with up to seven colours.
GMG product manager Peter Schöffler explains: “By using separation with the ChannelExtender, image data can be flexibly adapted to the printing process used.”
The conversion can be switched on or off at any stage during image processing. This way the final result can be directly simulate at any stage of processing. A further innovation: The ColorBoost function makes images more saturated and vivid.
The flexography function MinDot Adjust is now also available for defining the tonal-threshold value for spot colours. The Set-with-curve option ensures the capture of gradient details when doing so. In addition, MinDot Adjust can now also be used on hidden or locked layers.
With GMG ColorPlugin 1.3 individual channels can be exchanged or removed entirely or selectively. The automatic compensation by the remaining channels ensures colour consistency when doing so. It is also possible to make a colour-accurate conversion between a range of colour spaces – in the Pro version also based on a self-created colour profile.
