Download your Ink Tools Trial - Esko

Download your Ink Tools Trial

Ink Tools add a set of plug-ins to Adobe Photoshop that allow you to prepare images with spot colors. The InkSwitch filter can automatically calculate special ink separations to match the appearance of a CMYK target. Patented Esko technology is used to create totally new separations for any combination of two, three or four spot-colors. With Display Inks you can show your special ink separations in full color overprint. The colors will match a lot closer to the printed result as when using the standard Photoshop spot channels. And unlike spot channels, with Display Inks you don't have to give up any Photoshop features like layering.
