Working with spot colors in Adobe Photoshop couldn’t be easier


In packaging printing, image data is often separated using spot colors. GMG ColorPlugin enhances Adobe Photoshop by automating this process. It also extends the color space to include special inks, making the process of jobs printed with specials easier and much more predictable. 


Accurate predictions

The approval process for images and color graphics can be complex and time-consuming. Our soft-proof solution GMG ColorPlugin allows the operator to preview the job accurately on-screen using the enhanced preview function in Adobe Photoshop. This allows quick and accurate approval saving time and money on proofing steps. 


Greater print stability


Exchanging or removing individual channels for more stability in printing is possible with features like ChannelChanger and ChannelRemover. Complete images, masked areas or layers can be used to convert all or parts of a job into the desired color space or adjusted to the chosen print process. 


Optimized for flexo printing

Problematic areas for flexographic printing, such as the first printing dot, can be identified with MinDot Preview and optimized for printing with MinDot Adjust. This ensures that even images with fine detail are printed accurately and banding is minimized.


The complete solution for color conversion


GMG ColorPlugin allows you to use the superior GMG MX technology in Adobe Photoshop. Profiles created in GMG ColorServer, GMG InkOptimizer or GMG OpenColor can effortlessly integrate into your image processing workflow.
