Retouching flexo in Photoshop

Printing images in a packaging workflow, more specifically a flexo workflow, requires a high level of expertise from the trade shop or printer/converter.

Flexo Tools, a plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® brings that expertise now to your desktop.

Flexo print and flexo plate visualization

Flexo Tools adds views for flexo print and plate visualization, ink coverage visualization, etc. FlexoClean is included for efficient removal of scum dots. The automatic FlexoFix image filter dramatically reduces retouching work while delivering results on the flexo press closer to the target.

Less skilled operators reach a new quality level, while even the most experienced retouchers appreciate that Flexo Tools helps improving the quality and productivity of their work.
