(June 2005) posted on Fri Jun 03, 2005

Advanced profiling technology for multicolor printing


GretagMacbeth has released ProfileMaker
5 Publish Plus, a color-management solution
that builds upon the company's Pro-
fileMaker5 Publish product by adding
advanced gamut-expanding profiling
technology and workflow tools for CMYK-based
multicolor printing.

ProfileMaker 5 Publish Plus is targeted
at large-format, digital, analog, and textile
print service providers, and addresses both
the color-separation process as well as soft
and hard proofing. The software includes:
profiling modules for monitor, scanner, output
(RGB, CMYK, Hexachrome, CMYKrb,
CMYKrg, and multicolor); a ProfileEditor, for
editing and fine-tuning profiles by working
with lightness, contrast, saturation, white
point, and gradation curves; a Measure Tool
for collecting and analyzing color data; a
ColorPicker for converting spot colors to
process colors; and the PM5 MultiColor
Plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop.

Compatible with Windows 98 SE, ME,
2000, XP, and 2003 Server, as well as Mac
OS X 10.2 and higher. A 17-in. or larger
color monitor with a resolution of 1024 x
768 pixels is recommended.

Available as software only ($4495
list), or bundled with various color-measurement
tools. (GretagMacbeth: www.gretagmacbeth.com)
