Manage and analyze your ICC profiles

NEW: ProfileManager is now included in CoPrA 3 to have access to all relevant tools and information inside your profiling application.

To keep control of the constantly growing number of ICC profiles on your computer, be it DeviceLink, printer, abstract, monitor or other types of profile, you need a tool that offers a variety of sorting and analysis capabilities. Particularly in the case of DeviceLink profiles, it is useful to have the ability to check for which source and target color spaces they were created, and which color space combinations they are valid for (e.g. RGB-to-CMYK, CMYKto- CMYK, CMYK-to-Multicolor). Sometimes, a few of your profiles may even have become obsolete, in which case you can simply select and delete them by right click/Delete.

And wouldn't it be wonderful if you could also see from your DeviceLink profiles whether the purity of the primary and secondary colors was preserved, or whether the black channel was perhaps accidentally reseparated instead of being composed solely of black? And what about the gray balance of your printer profile? Instead of tediously applying a profile to a test image and then using the eyedropper in an image editing program to measure the values, it usually suffices to take a look at the gradation curves of a profile on the Curves tab to get the certainty you need.

Automatic Profile Report

Just a right-click on a profile (printer or DeviceLink profiles) and you are able to automatically generate a profile analysis report in the form of a PDF or XML file. This report contains curves, color separations, gamut diagrams and conversions of meaningful test files to give you an overview of the quality of your profiles. More or less everything you could possibly want to know about your ICC profiles is included.

Workflow optimization for ZePrA

As a user of ColorLogic's ZePrA color server you surely appreciate the Auto Setup Wizard, which automatically sets the correct source and target profiles for a DeviceLink profile configuration, and enters the PDF/X information. However, this only works if the DeviceLink profile that was actually used contains the corresponding information. With the ColorLogic DeviceLink Sets or profiles created with CoPrA this is the case. In other scenarios the Workflow tab of Profile Manager allows you to subsequently add this information to profiles you have created yourself and optimize Profiles from other vendors to be used with ZePrA's Auto Setup.

Colorants in Multicolor profiles

In packaging printing or hi-fi printing with more colors than CMYK, or with different inks, it is essential to name the channels in your profile accordingly to the colors used. This is important because it ensures that the channels in your PDF files and the color separations have recognizable names in the event of conversion using this profile. You can enter both the color names and the Lab color values for all color channels on the Colorants tab. This function is available for Multicolor printer profiles and for Multicolor DeviceLink profiles.
