Barcode generation
Generate dynamic barcode with assured printability. This plug-in contains a wide range of industry standard barcodes and has advanced features such as automatic box generation, bar width reduction and output resolution dependent scaling. Never was generating barcodes in Adobe Illustrator easier and more professional.
Selection and alignment
This bundle offers dedicated tools to accelerate frequently used selection and alignment operations, and to add new ways to handle spot colors and special inks beyond Adobe Illustrator's powerful capabilities.
Check your incoming files as early as possible. Minimize the cost of errors or validate your designs before you send them off to the printer. With the Preflight functionality, your file is verified against a personal profile and a validation report is generated. This interactive report guides your through the violations found against image types and resolutions, line widths, color spaces, minimum %, font rules, x-height...
Viewer - Visualize packaging design
A correct visualization of your packaging design is crucial in a professional environment. Catch errors early on with the Viewer. It is the perfect tool for packaging quality control.
With the Viewer, you can work with predefined Press Settings to detect first printable dots, to simulate dot gain and registration errors, and to calculate the total area coverage in your file.
Channel mapping
Remap channels of embedded or linked images into any used ink in the document. The channel mapping functionality remaps the inks of all commonly used images formats (TIFF, JPEG, PSD, Adobe® Photoshop® DCS, Adobe® Photoshop® EPS, PNG, GIF...).
Image extraction
Embedded images in Adobe® Illustrator® files cannot be edited. This makes last minute revisions impossible. With Image Extractor, you can convert embedded images into externally linked images, allowing you to edit them in Adobe® Photoshop®.
Import PDF
Secure file round-tripping between Adobe® Illustrator®, ArtPro, and PackEdge.
Import PDFs with Esko specific information in Adobe® Illustrator® without losing layer, separations, screening information...!
The PDF Import functionality improves the way Normalized PDF files are converted into Adobe® Illustrator® format. Esko specific information is passed to Illustrator® to keep the file editable.
Instant Trapper
The Instant Trapper functionality is by far the easiest interactive trapping solution on the market. Trapping becomes a matter of clicking the 2 elements you want to trap. All traps are placed on a separate layer and centerlines are automatically calculated.
White Underprint
This bundle also includes White Underprint functionality. Add a white underprint to your file in a few clicks. Choose an ink name and a choke-distance and automatically the correct object will be created in a separate layer based on the selected artwork. This tool can also be used to quickly create finishing layers (varnishes, embossing...)
Dynamic Marks
This bundle also comes with Dynamic Marks. This functionality helps you generate proofing marks, print marks and registration marks in Illustrator in the most intuitive way.
Upgrade Illustrator® art to a Dynamic Mark and reuse it on all your files. The color and positions of the Dynamic Marks will adapt to the characteristics of the file. Add text marks that display separation, user, file or job information. Add gradation strips, bearer bars and cut marks from a list of Standard Marks. The marks will stay fully editable to fit your production variables. After applying a Dynamic Mark Set on a single file or step and repeat, all marks remain dynamic which means you can load these at any time.
