The following table provides a side-by-side comparison of the same tasks in the two software. The left column lists the tasks you would perform in Harmony; the right column lists the equivalent tasks in ColorFlow:


Create a print current curve

  1. In the Print Curves tab, under Calibration Curves, click the Add button .
  2. Add your device in the viewer window.
  3. Click the Properties icon  and define the device condition.
  4. Click the Measurement icon .
  5. You can either measure a chart or import an existing Harmony current curve with real measurement data.

    1. In the Chart tab, click the Add button .
    2. In the Chart Type dropdown list, select Tint Ramp.
    3. Click Save.
    4. Print the tint ramp chart with the device condition that you want to calibrate.
    5. Click Measure.
    6. In the Characterization Print Curve dialog box, choose the print curve used to output the tint ramp chart in Prinergy.
    7. Click OK.
    8. Follow the measurement wizard to measure or enter your measurements.
    1. Click the Measurements tab.
    2. Click Import.
    3. Locate and select the Harmony file.
    4. Click Open.
    5. Click Close to close the Device Measurements window.
Create print target curve
  1. Click the Conversion icon .
  2. If you want the curve to be visible in Prinergy, select the Show curves in Prinergy check box.
  3. Click the Process Inks tab and select the desired target device condition from the Target dropdown list.
    ColorFlow provides a list of built-in industry CMYK specifications that you can use as your target response. If you can't find the desired target from the list, you can create a custom CMYK Reference device condition as your target.

    1. Click the Device Conditions tab and then click the Add icon .
      The Device window appears.
    2.  Drag the CMYK Reference to the viewer window.
    3. In the device condition, click the Properties icon .

    4. In the Name list, type a name.
    5. In the Separate Same As list, select a device type that best represents the black generation strategy of the reference device condition. For the US Web Coated SWOP reference, select Offset  Press - Heatset Web.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Click the Measurement icon .
    8. In the Device Measurement dialog box, click the Add button .
    9. From the Chart Type list, select Tint Ramp.
    10. Click Save.
    11. Click Measure.
    12. Click Enter manually.
    13. Click a color channel (C, M, Y, or K), or in the Channel Binding section, select C, M, Y Same or C, M, Y, K Same.
    14. In the Tonal Response section, double-click the EDA area of a desired tint in, and then enter your EDA value.
    15. Click OK and close the Device Measurement dialog box.
    16. In the Device Conditions list table, find the device condition that you just created and select the Show in Target List check box.
  4. Click the Spot Inks tab and select a spot ink target if applicable.
  5. In the Curves Method list, select Tonal Match.
  6. Click OK.
Create a derived calibration curve based on the print current and target curve

The print calibration curve is generated for you

Edit the print calibration curve:

  1. Edit the print current curve.
  2. Edit the print target curve.
  3. Re-create the print calibration curve based on the modified current and target curves.
  1. Click the Conversion icon 
  3. You can click Calibration Curves to display the curve graph and see the result of you adjustments. 
  4. To preview the effect of your adjustments, click Preview and select an image file.
  5. Click Apply.
