    Navigator 8 Ripping CTs at different angles than LW

    The reason the files are defining the angle instead of the RIP is we are ripping files to generate 1-Bit TIFFS to go to other printers. This is for a packaging workflow for which we are the pre-press house. The printers we are supplying files to want the 1-Bit TIFFS, but we do different screen...

    Navigator 8 Ripping CTs at different angles than LW

    The purpose of this workflow in the RIP is to accept different screen angles as they are defined in the PDF. So setting the screen angles to override would defeat the purpose. The angles are going to be different for different jobs. Further information has come to light as well. What I was...

    Navigator 8 Ripping CTs at different angles than LW

    Include halftone screens is never checked when saving the CTs. Too bad too because that would have been an easy fix!

    Navigator 8 Ripping CTs at different angles than LW

    There are NO overrides set in the RIP. All of the angle information comes from XML data defined in the PDF. The LW is reading those angles fine, but the CT is ripping at a different angle. The spot colors in the CTs are ripping fine as well. Just for a test, I changed the default angles on...

    Navigator 8 Reads PDF Title rather than file name...

    Another question with out new Navigator 8 rip. When I feed it PDF files to rip, I noticed it reads the PDF Title from the metadata for writing the filename of the ripped files. Is there anyway to make it read the filename itself? If I can having a matching input and output file name then I...

    Navigator 8 Ripping CTs at different angles than LW

    I am feeding a PDF to our new Navigator 8 rip. Screen angles are defined in the metadata of the PDF which the RIP appears to read fine. All spot colors, regardless of in a CT or a LW read fine. But the process colors are correct in the LW, but incorrect in the CT (which comes from a Photoshop...

    Colored Images in InDesign

    Re: Colored Images in InDesign The Gradient Map Adjustment Layer is in Photoshop. You can use this to get the same effect as you would in InDesign if you selected a grayscale image with the open arrow tool and the selected a color swatch. Another method I was made aware of that works is as...

    Colored Images in InDesign

    Re: Colored Images in InDesign Thanks to the help from some guys on the Adobe forums I was able to figure this out. I figured I would post the solution here as well in case anyone needed to do the same thing. The key is to use a +Gradient Map Adjustment Layer+. The grayscale will need to get...

    Colored Images in InDesign

    Re: Colored Images in InDesign The reason I am creating a Postscript output is because we are processing the pages usin DALiM TWiST. Then, how TWiST treats the linework vs. the CT is causing the problem. The images I am colorizing are grayscale images, and are being colorized by selecting on...

    Colored Images in InDesign

    After running some tests with InDesign CS2 and CS3, I have found a weird quirk. If a grayscale CT is "colorized" with a process color, it is treated as a linework element upon creation of the postscript output file. If it is colorized with a spot, it remains as CT. This has caused some...

    WACOM Tablet Pen Tool issue with Photoshop CS3

    This is a problem unique to using my pen in Photoshop CS3. It doesn't do it with my standard mouse, or with my Wacom mouse. I also doesn't do it in Photoshop CS2, but I have not been able to find a preference to fix this in CS3. When I am cutting a path around an object, if the next point I...
