Extend ZePrA with Photoshop Extensions

Introducing Push-2-ZePrA

Push-2-ZePrA is an Adobe Photoshop extension that allows color converting an image file selected in Photoshop with ColorLogic’s color server ZePrA from Photoshop.

Convert PSD files using DeviceLinks

Depending on the color server settings high quality color conversions with DeviceLink profiles will be performed leading to better color rendering of images than typical color conversion with Photoshop.

Never leave Photoshop

The converted file will be opened up in Photoshop so that you do not need to leave Photoshop in order to get the best possible color converted images.
