callas pdfColorConvert offers direct color conversion in Acrobat 6 & 7
March 09, 2005
callas software has released 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.
