XChange International Ships pdfColorConvert for Acrobat

Professionally convert colours from within any PDF document quickly and easily (March 18, 2005)

XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of the new pdfColorConvert plug-in. pdfColorConvert allows users to professionally convert colours from within any PDF document quickly and easily. The Plug-In for Adobe Acrobat 6 and 7 converts RGB/Lab data and spot colours from within PDF documents into CMYK, thus providing a basis for reliable, colour matching print output. pdfColorConvert has been designed for publishing experts as well as for office users who are looking for an easy way to output PDFs properly, without any detailed colour management knowledge.

Users in prepress agencies and print offices can greatly benefit from pdfColorConvert. By using the Plug-In, preparing PDF files for coloured print output becomes child's play. pdfColorConvert supports editing houses and ad agencies, allowing them to contribute to high quality printing of their publications. In case the user does not know the origin of the PDF he wants to convert, pdfColorConvert can determine input settings automatically with its ?Automatic Best Guess? feature, even identifying PDF/X files.

To convert and output the PDF document correctly, a number of current ready-to-use output profiles from sheet fed offset to gravure print have already been set up by the manufacturer. Users simply choose the output destination ? no additional adjustments are required. Manual determination of PDF document origins is also possible, as well as the ability to import individual output profiles.

Additional features make operating with pdfColor Convert even more convenient: the ?Recall... option helps to save time when it comes to processing repetitive jobs. This feature identifies and adopts former settings which may be suitable for current colour conversions. Each and every conversion process is documented thoroughly with reports including detailed information. Help texts have been integrated into the pdfColorConvert interface guaranteeing easy operation by any user at any time.
