Output Effect of High Resolution Images

2003 I was using Delta, we got Prinergy in Dec2008 which was v4, (now v5). I still think Preps could learn a few things from Signastaion, regarding Marks placement. Purup I think was Danish and got taken over or turned into Esko, It had a bitmap scanner front end which was similarly super high res, ...

Output Effect of High Resolution Images

Before Harlequin I started with Crosfield Lino and Purup Imagesetters, that Purup one was awsome res at 4800dpi. Which version of Prinergy did you have? Taken from a post on another forum by someone called kyle who seems to really know his stuff.[H] A normal RIP does not resample images to fit a scr...

Output Effect of High Resolution Images

Hi Glenn, The way I understand my workflow, (I use Rampage) the final image sent to the plate is 2438 DPI. Everything in that image is no longer text or vectors. It is converted to an image composed exclusively of pixels in a Rampage proprietary format. Then this image is converted by a screener to...

Importing illustrator eps with overprint

Quark 9 is the first version that hands off EPS preview duties to JAWS, I guess JAWS isn't allowing for overprint, what if you generate a high res preview? or don't if you already are?

How do I "Export Layout as PDF" at say 200% ?

Don't think you can do this in InDesign either (although you can make the page size bigger), only two methods I know are to Print and Distill and you are up against Lion ( I thought there was a workaround to create postscript in Lion), or, ask your Printer to scale it up, it couldn't be simpler in P...

Quark 8.5 postscript underline problem...

Many many advantages over Acrobat Pro, I think its available as a 30day demo. Once installed into Acrobat you can use a Pitstop Selection Tool to select the underline and change its colour in the Inspector pallete, if there are lots on the same page you can use Ptstop Select Similar tool and grab th...

Quark 8.5 postscript underline problem...

I've seen similar with rotated text boxes, only solution was to turn the postscript to pdf and edit with Pitstop.

Output Effect of High Resolution Images

It depends on the screening technology in your RIP. A long time ago the 1270dpi with a line-ruling of 100lpi would mean that you form a grid of cells (dpi/lpi) 12.7x12.7dots (you cant have decimal places so it would be 13x13 or 12x12) (so in the case of 12x12 that gives you 144 possible shades of gr...

PC to MAC - Is it worth it?

best practice with text and transparency is to make sure the text is at the front (top) if you need runaround draw a box filled with none.

Image Quality in Printing

It's actually quite complicated to give an answer.[;)] I'd start by saying if you mean 15% less, so 85% of original size, I don't think it would affect print quality at all. If you mean 15% of original size then lots of factors come into play for High quality print, but depending on your image may n...
