A few clicks

instead of a thousand tricks

GMG ColorPlugin turns Adobe Photoshop

into a prepress mega tool


No tricks, no secret know-how –

but a lot more team flexibility

Processing image data for packaging print has always been a specialists job. This creates many bottlenecks when it comes to the planning of resources. The best experts are not always available, or they have too many other things to do.
  • Thanks to the user-friendly application of GMG ColorPlugin, anyone in the team is able to fulfil what used to be an experts task.

  • Spot color separation has always been a very demanding task for prepress experts. With GMG ColorPlugin, this has now become decisively easier and can be executed by anyone in the team.

Repeatability may sound boring to most,
but the experts are very excited

Every re-print should be a joy. However, when it comes to actually doing the job, everyone knows the particular challenge: consistent colors. The solution: GMG ColorPlugin.

  • Traditionally, separations for a re-print had to be carried out manually – a painful process leading to different results each time.

  • The quality of a separation depended on the individual operator and his/her skills – but even the most knowledgeable experts cannot guarantee identical results

Thanks to the project-based workflow of GMG ColorPlugin, defined parameters are saved centrally. This data is available across different locations and ensures consistent colors at all times.

Digital print, ECG, CMYK plus spot colors:
many challenges and even more opportunities

While digital printing with extended color space is a growing trend in the packaging industry, the combination of CMYK and additional colors on conventional printing machines has been around for a long time. Innovation is always an opportunity, and efficiency is more in demand than ever – the smart solution: GMG ColorPlugin.
  • Consistent colors with unbeatable efficiency – RGB to ECG / CMYKOGV: just one simple mouse click with GMG ColorPlugin

  • Add spot color channels as required – it's straightforward, no need for complicated workarounds or repeated proofing, and certainly no nasty surprises on press

Bread and butter for packaging experts: deleting one or two channels from 4c image data. The nemesis: time

Up till now, deleting or replacing individual color channels while maintaining the same color result required a lot of experience and time. Thanks to GMG ColorPlugin, this valuable time can now be better spent elsewhere.
