    Fiery Compose simplifies printing of booklets and manuals by providing media assignment, tab printing, chapterization and multiple finishing options; plus a visual and interactive user interface.

    6.    Spot colors

    Complex manuals and documents often include logos and brand colors defined with spot colors such as PANTONE®. Fiery servers support PANTONE and other color systems to match a desired spot color on a given printer.

    7.    Accurate color

    Fiery Servers correctly render and produce accurate colors for documents containing a mix of spot colors, multiple color spaces, transparencies and overprints


    8.    Last minute touch-ups and corrections

    Fiery Image Enhance Visual Editor interactive tool adjusts images in a job individually, without opening and editing the file in the originating application. Adjust brightness, contrast, highlights, shadows, color balance and sharpness; and make red-eye corrections on any image.

    9.    Troubleshooting files

    Use advanced Fiery tools to identify and correct file issues before printing such as missing fonts, spot colors, low-resolution images, mixed source colors, hairlines below threshold, overprints, artifacts, transparencies and PostScript errors. Fiery ImageViewer provides a pixel level preview of a raster file to pinpoint source of problem (file, engine or job processing), and also enables last-minute color adjustments.
