Color-Logic releases Image-FX Metallic Separation Tool

Color-Logic has released Image-FX, a software plug-in that automatically creates a metallic ink separation for conventional printing or a white ink separation for use with metallic substrates. The Photoshop plug-in is available to Adobe Creative Cloud users and produces images effectively in wide-format and UV printers.
colorlogicimagefx-in“The Color-Logic Image-FX plug-in analyzes photographic images and automatically calculates the required metal effect for different tonal regions,” said Color-Logic Chief Technical Officer Richard Ainge (pictured previously). “This automated tool eliminates the costly and time-consuming hit-or-miss approach of integrating metallics into an image. In conventional printing, metallic ink is used only where required, thus cutting ink consumption. When printing on metallic substrates, the tool eliminates the tedious task of cutting white ink masks. Designers requiring vector treatment of their images, or any of the other dramatic Color-Logic special effects, can upgrade to the full Color-Logic Design License at any time,” he added.
Color-Logic tools simplify design and print production, creating decorative effects for use on branded product packaging and associated collateral. The Color-Logic system is compatible with offset, inkjet, flexography, digital presses, screen printing and gravure. It’s ideal for packaging, pouches, direct mail, point-of-purchase materials, signage, postcards, literature, booklets, labels, shrink sleeves, calendars and more.
