Color-Logic Offers Plug-In Tool for Metallic Effects


WEST CHESTER, OH | Color-Logic announces Image-FX, described as a user-friendly plug-in tool for Adobe Photoshop that essentially eliminates the lengthy process of determining how and where to add metallic effects to an image.

The Image-FX feature of company’s Design Suite permits graphic designers or printer prepress personnel to determine, with a single mouse click, precisely how much metallic effect should be added into an RGB, LAB, or CMYK image. Company says what previously required hours of designer time can now be done in seconds.

Image-FX is a photorealistic image separation algorithm that analyzes images and creates an effect printing plate by calculating the required metallic effect for the different tonal regions of the image. Reportedly, the plug-in eliminates the hit-and-miss, trial-and-error approach to integrating metallic or white inks into the image.

Company’s chief technical officer Richard Ainge says, "The Image-FX feature in the Design Suite makes designing with decorative effects a breeze. The new multilingual interface permits designers to create the Color-Logic separation with a single mouse click, and to reliably and predictably print with either metallic or white ink.”
