Create a spot color optimization file

You may be able to reduce the dE values of L*a*b* spot colors by applying a spot color optimization file. You can optimize custom spot colors, and spot colors from the internal spot color library.

Before you begin, connect your measuring device to the computer.
  1. In Color Editor: Select one or more L*a*b* spot colors.
  2. On the lower toolbar, click Optimize.
  3. Select your measuring device.
  4. Select a printer.
  5. Select a media.

    If you have created a custom media, you can select it here. Otherwise, use the default media.

  6. Click Next.

    A chart of the spot colors to be optimized is printed.

  7. Follow the on-screen instructions to measure the chart.
  8. Click Next.

    Color Editor displays the achieved average dE and the maximum dE.

  9. Do one of the following:
    • Click Iterate to repeat the optimization procedure until no further optimization is possible. In the optimization table, click the best set of results, and then click Finish to save your optimization.

    • Click Verifier to start Verifier.

    • Click Finish to create your spot color optimization file.

The spot color optimization file is applied to all workflows that are using that spot color table.
