“On-Screen Soft Proofing” Color Correction
WorkStream software also allows “on-screen soft proofing” for the entire order. As you adjust the color controls, the color balance will change on your monitor. With an ICC profiled monitor, what you see (on the screen) is what you will get on the finished print! You can perfect the color, density, contrast, and saturation across a group of images simultaneously. You will get great results with total ease and confidence.
WorkStream DS supports the retouching of images at the click of button. Open the image that you want to retouch. Click on the “Retouch” button to open the image in Photoshop or whichever retouching program you use. The altered image will be transferred back to WorkStream.
