PRESS RELEASE: Profile Prism v5.0 released
Digital Domain Inc. would like to announce the release of Profile Prism v5.0. Our professional scanner based printer profiling tool has just reached the next level with a visual profile editor that is capable of precise editing of printer profiles through a defined workflow.
A quality scanner based profiling tool like Profile Prism is very helpful in color managing "screen to print" color, however, due to differences in how your eyes perceive color in prints and how your scanner interprets printed targets, there is often a need for some fine tuning or editing of certain areas of printer profiles. Until now, scanner based profiling tools only offered cumbersome or very generic editing tools and offered no way to fine tune profiles without a lot of trial and error.
Profile Prism v5.0 now allows detailed visual editing of printer profiles through a simple and effective workflow that eliminates nearly all trial and error adjustments! Editing is accomplished via an innovative technique where you specify exactly how a test print looks when compared to the same image on screen. Simply use the editing controls to make the (correct) image on screen look like your print, and the editor examines the differences and creates a corrected profile!
The Profile Prism editor was designed to allow visual correction in just a few passes by using simple but effective tools that accommodate the way we perceive and work with color in digital images. The editing process allows the user to focus on a specific color band, making different changes to different colors as necessary, all while viewing the effect of these changes on screen! All profile editing is done based on the initial profile and results are saved to another profile without the need to regenerate profiles when adjustments are made. We know that our users have been waiting for a simple and effective way to edit profiles, and we think you'll agree that v5.0 was worth the wait!
