With version 1.3, colour accurate separations from RGB into Multicolour colour spaces are possible with up to seven colours. This is based on GMG OpenColor separation profiles.
GMG product manager Peter Schöffler explained, ‘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 simulated 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.
