Color replacement

The TxLink3 can replace the colors used in a range of image data formats, including raster, vector, CMYK, and RGB. The target color is represented by specifying the color and lab values. Color patches on the chart can also be used as the target color.

Changing the color to the target color

This function is useful if the printed color differs from the target color. The color data can be replaced to reproduce the target color.

Multicolor profile creation

A multicolor profile for CMYK and spot colors (blue, red, orange, and other colors) can be created. The profile is created automatically by following the instructions of the wizard. Operators only have to print and measure*1 the color chart.
*1: Before measuring the color, please fix the color by heating. A colorimeter is not a standard feature of TxLink3.
