Caldera, a part of Dover Digital Printing and Dover, has announced the integration of the Adobe Textile Designer plugin for Adobe Photoshop with version 12.1 of Caldera’s award-winning raster image processor (RIP) software. Caldera is a leading developer and distributor of innovative software solutions serving the graphics and textile markets.

Adobe textile designer is a set of tools for fashion and décor artists to streamline the design process and optimise for printing. Integration with Caldera V12.1 ensures accurate pattern repeatability, and correct and consistent colour management through the design-to-production lifecycle, according to Dover.

The integration workflow starts with the Caldera RIP software extracting geometric information from the exported Adobe Photoshop file, such as the drop type, to ensure that the correct settings are applied for printing. Colorway information is extracted for accurate colour management – both spot channels and meta-data specifying the colorant name are exported from Adobe textile designer.

As Caldera V12.1 has advanced spot colour management, each spot channel is colourised according to the information provided by Adobe textile designer. This allows for the use of embedded Pantone or other colour libraries in Caldera. Furthermore, each spot channel can also be remapped to any LAB or output device colours using static rules or dynamic output conditions, which also allows the use of Caldera’s colour-book module to fine tune output results.

Working within Photoshop keeps every element editable until the user is ready to send it to the printer. Patterns can be previewed, separations defined, and colourways adjusted. Integration with Caldera gives designers the confidence that their creations can be printed in production with results that remain accurate and consistent with the original design.

“Adobe textile designer exported files can be perfectly integrated into a Caldera automation environment using a simple hot folder process, or can be pushed as part of a larger ecosystem using Caldera’s Nexio automation module, to streamline production. The combination of these two cutting-edge products results in a completely integrated process for textile designers to accurately translate their Photoshop designs into printed textiles,” Sébastien Hanssens, Dover Digital Printing’s vice president of marketing, operations, and IT said.
