      ColorLogic ZePrA Toolbox





      auto setup

      Auto Setup - Create workflows using one of six standard auto setup configurations based on the most common color management tasks in print production. Files that can be processed include: TIFF, JPEG, PSD or PSB image files, as well as PDF files

      Main Setup and Overview



      Overview - Access ZePrA's Overview Screen. View queues, pending jobs, processed jobs. Configurations can be assigned to Queues at any time and the order in which queues are processed can be controlled, allowing control over specific queues raising or lowering priority for file processing.



      Configurations - creates and manages all the settings related to the handling of color and PDF specific parameters. The settings in Define Configuration include color conversion using ICC device profiles or ICC DeviceLink profiles



      Queues - All the basic functions of queue folder management are available for modification; input, output, originals, error, temporary folder and the Define Queues dialog. The Queue customization options include: appending the file name with a custom job id, assigning a new configuration for the Queue, post processing and generating reports to a specific folder


      spot colors

      Spot Color Report - is helpful to check the spot color conversion before printing. You can either check a specific PDF file with spot colors that needs to be converted or how a spot color library with multiple Pantone or other spot colors would be processed through ZePrA.


      spot colors

      SaveInk Report - Generate a SaveInk report by either right-clicking on jobs under Processed or by clicking on the icon via the Navigation Panel. The report generates a detailed overview of all the SaveInk queues set up and processed jobs.


      spot colors

      Extract ICC Profile - extracts the embedded profile from images and the output intent from PDF/X files. The extracted ICC profile can then be stored in a predefined location.

      Global Settings


      spot colors

      Spot Color Libraries - Allows optimized conversion of spot colors in PDF files into CMYK. If the ZePrA XL package or Multicolor has been licensed, (which includes the Spot Color module), it has the ability to monitor Multicolor spaces and to convert spot colors to Multicolor.


      create gradations

      Gradations - The application of gradation curves completes the process of preparing data for printing. Shortly before going to press, almost every printing process calls for a tone value correction(TVI) that is stored in the RIP of the platesetter.


      profile assignments

      Profile Assignments - Profile Assignments is an option in conjunction with SmartLink that enables the use of existing, already tested or special DeviceLink profiles that are based on the ICC standard for converting your data.

      • The ColorLogic solution offers printers the secure knowledge of getting the best possible conversion of spot colors into process colors, both in terms of colorimetry and regarding best printability
      • .
      • ZePrA uses spectral data and spot color libraries and can optimize colors based on custom conversions.


      Push-2-ZePrA Logo Window
      • The extended Push-@-ZePrAfeature is an Adobe Photoshop extention that allows to covert an image file in Photoshop with ZePra from photoshop.

      zepra gradation curve

      Gradation corrections

      • Gradation curve corrections ensure compliance with printing standards and is helpful to compensate variables in the printing process.
      • The printing characteristics can be directly included in the data. You may apply curves on process and spot colors.
      • Gradations allows last minute changes to data, too.

      Integration with Enfocus Switch

      • Integration with Enfocus Switch is made to realize a complete workflow - from data receipt, to data checking and color conversion, all the way to data distribution.
