Inclusive of the PANTONE®+ Solid Coated and PANTONE®+ Solid Uncoated colour libraries, the 5.0 version of the software spots colours in design files automatically and converts it to its accurate CMYK build. It also eliminates the requirement for special colour software by enabling the use of a spectrophotometer to directly measure colour patches, or samples to be used as replacement colours within RasterLink6 software, with an option of storing frequently used colours.
Another new addition to the software is the ability to create FOTOBA cut marks directly within the Rasterlink6 operation window, which will streamline production by allowing operators to create cropmarks without the need for additional design software.
