Announcing Isis Locus Software for duotone creation(November 02, 2008)
Isis Imaging Introduces Isis Locus Duotone Software
Vancouver, BC, Canada October 28, 2008 (Press Release) ? Isis Imaging Corporation today announced the release of Isis Locus, the turnkey software for duotone creation.
Isis Imaging believes that software should be simple, inexpensive and perform one job well. Isis Locus developed by Stephen Herron, the leading authority on duotone technology, accurately creates, displays and saves duotones of any color.
Complete Set of Controls Isis Locus simple controls provide an infinite range of image correction possibilities for perfect duotone reproduction every time. Selection of the ink color is important, and with Isis Locus the user may pick any color from any image and any match-color chart. Custom palettes provide an easy way to collect colors.
Easy Image Processing Just select the ink colors and adjust the image correction sliders for optimum reproduction. From then on creating the images for duotone is the simple process of opening the source images and saving or exporting the duotone images.
Additional Features Duotone creation is just one of three Isis Locus functions. Creation of a fifth image for five-color reproduction, and a unique overlay color-correction method similar to a photo filter are included.
The creation of a fifth-color image is used on five-color offset presses for adding match color inks, metallic inks and varnishes to the four-color process image.
The overlay color correction control, similar to a photo correction filter, changes the coloration of an image. Adjustments are made with the same simple controls. The result is displayed in real-time. If the user has mixed watercolor paints then overlay color-correction is very intuitive.
More Control of Soft Proofs Accurate views of the source image, two duotone color images and the duotone mixture result are all provided. Unlike any other imaging software, Isis Locus achieves a new level of soft proofing accuracy with the ink opacity adjustment slider. Since inks are not entirely transparent, this control provides a more representative proof of real-world inks.
Output for every type of printer Isis Locus exports duotone images individually for use on an offset press or saves them in an RGB format for inkjet and laser reproduction.
The duotones images are for two-color offset presses and highlight laser printers. Fifth color images are for reproduction on five-color offset presses. Four-color offset, inkjet and laser printers can print the RGB version available in many formats.
Pricing and Availability Isis Locus can be downloaded now at www.isisimaging.com. The price is $64 US. A demo version is available. Made only for the Apple Macintosh computer and OS 10.5.
