Color Reduction & Cleaning Pro

Color Reduction and Cleaning Pro is one of the core modules included in Printing Studio Suite and offers the most specialized and versatile tools for processing scans of artwork and fabric samples alike.

Today’s retail, apparel, home furnishings and textile designers demand unparalleled performance from user-friendly software that delivers the highest quality products possible. 

Because scans capture an unlimited number of colors many designers face the challenge of converting the scan into a precise number of flat and tonal colors. Several color reduction techniques can be applied depending on the design type and the real time preview window assures that you’ll achieve the results that you want in the least amount of time.

Following color reduction, a full complement of cleaning tools is available to remove unwanted imperfections in your design. Most of the cleaning tools can be applied automatically, allowing the user to spend far less time manually replacing stray dirt, fabric textures or pencil lines. This is one of the most essential and beneficial offerings of Printing Studio Suite.
