TARGET=’_NEW’>callas software has released HREF=’http://www.callassoftware.com/en/new_pdfcolorconvert.php’ TARGET=’_NEW’>pdfColorConvert, a new tool for professional PDF editing. The plug-In — for Adobe Acrobat 6 and 7, and available for Windows 2000/XP and for Mac OS X — converts RGB data and spot colors from within PDF files into CMYK. It has been designed for both publishing experts and office users — without detailed Color Management knowledge — who are looking for an easy, time-saving way to prepare PDFs for color correct print output.
For users who don’t know the origin of a PDF to be converted, the ‘Automatic Best Guess’ feature can determine input settings automatically. To convert and output the PDF document correctly, a number of ready-to-use output profiles — from sheet-fed offset to gravure print — have been set up by callas. The ‘Recall…’ option helps to save time when processing repetetive jobs: it identifies and adopts former settings which may be suitable for current spot color conversions. Every conversion process is documented with reports.
