What Do I Need to Do?

Creating an GMG OpenColor profile is done in three major steps:

  1. Characterize the Printing Process and MediaGMG OpenColor uses spectral measurement data representing a specific printing process and media type to create proof profiles.
  2. Apply the characterization to a project: Characterizations are stored in the database and are the basis from which your proof profiles are created. This basis needs to be put into a "container" which also contains the target printing condition and the proofing condition. We call such a container a "project".
  3. Publish the project: Each project with a characterization can be published for dynamic profiling in GMG ColorProof. Alternatively, you can create profiles manually within GMG OpenColor, and publish those for static use in GMG ColorProof.
