Plug-in announced for Photoshop and InDesign - Master Colors LLC, the worlds leader in colour quantification technology, have just released itís award winning HVC Color Composer plug-in for Photoshop on the Windows platform at a great new price.
The HVC Color Composer is the inexpensive digital colour solution that starts with perfect colour design and ends with perfect colour output.
"I was able to save my company about $250,000 last year with the HVC Color Composer Professional. If most of our clients were using it, the savings would be in the millions. This utility brings professional quality colour to the fingertips of the design world," said Casey George, Digital Prepress Mgr., Great Western Litho, CA. "This is the must-have plug-in for Photoshop and InDesign."
Master Colors' amazing colour quantification technology is the basis for the only software of its kind in the world. Starting with Master Colors' unique HVC Color Space, the HVC Color Composer instantly determines the contrast distances between colours and organizes Smart Palettes so that your colour choices can easily applied to your artwork.
Master Colors also offers a free on-line colour seminar, titled "Nirvana: 6 Lessons to Colour Enlightenment," which teaches artists how to build powerful, professional quality colour compositions rapidly. The Master Colors' lesson plan provides seven numerical progressions, each with a distinctly different harmonic mood, and which automatically provide a solid proportional structure to any work of art.
Because Master Colors' proprietary HVC Color Space is a pigment-based model like CMYK, an ink-based model, the transformation process is smooth and accurate, and avoids the ugly anomalies that plague both artists and prepress professionals at the end of almost every job. When the artist chooses colours from Master Colors HVC-based Smart Palettes, those choices are automatically compatible with the printers CMYK space, thereby eliminating the output problems at the end of the job.
Master Colors offers artists the only known objective method of colour composition, with an approach that can be clearly explained. Master Colors has organized the science of colour harmonics in such a way that it can easily be easily understood and used by any artist or pre-press professional.
