Configurations

Settings for Color Conversion and PDF Processing

Configurations

The settings made under Configurations determine how the file is converted and processed.  In ZePrA, files are processed via Queues, i.e. a job corresponds to the processing of a file via a queue. Each queue must have a configuration assigned to it. The assignment can be done in the Queues tool.

Queues and their configurations are managed separately and configurations can be reassigned to queues at any time.

Under Configurations, you can define all settings related to color handling and PDF processing. This includes color conversion via ICC output profiles or DeviceLink profiles, handling of mixed PDF files (documents with data in CMYK, RGB, Grayscale and spot colors) and customized assignment of gradation curves as well as processing of spot colors.

Existing configurations can be selected from the drop-down menu.
