RIP and Print Dialog - Adjustment Tab

(see also: RIP and Print Overview)

Notice: this tab is can have drastic effects on the output of your job. If you are uncertain how this works, it is best to leave it as is.

The Color Adjustment tab provides some basic tools to manually adjust the output color.

Each color channel is listed separately as a linearization curve that determines what percentage of coverage will be used (output) for a specified percentage in the original image (input).

Looking at this tab in the Job Properties when the job is in Production Manager allows you to see an estimated preview of these changes.
