Markzware FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Preferences: Images

Markzwares preflight solutionFlightCheck, can check image files for print quality.

Markzware FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Preferences: Images

You can customize options for images in FlightCheck’s Preferences under the Images tab:
Calculate Image Previews – By default, FlightCheck allows you to see a small thumbnail preview of an image in the Sub-Overview window. (This is if the image has an available preview. Not all images have previews available.)

Calculate Image Densities – By default, this is disabled, as it tends to slow FlightCheck down. If you want to use the Ink Density Ground Control under the Images section in FlightCheck’s Ground Controls, enable this. (Ink Density only works on TIFF and JPEG file formats; it does not calculate ink densities for EPS files.)

By default, FlightCheck sets up four relative paths in which to search for images. (These paths are relative to the document being preflighted.) Just like fonts, this is a prioritized list with the highest priority path at the top of the list and the lowest priority at the bottom of the list. The paths are:

  • ./ – This represents images found at the same level as the document that has been preflighted. This is useful if someone packages a job and throws all of the images loose in a folder with the layout application document.
  • Images – This is the default name of the folder that FlightCheck collects images into. This is useful if someone has collected a job using FlightCheck.
  • Links – This is the default name of the folder that InDesign collects images into. This is useful if someone has collected a job using InDesign and you want to ensure all images are present.
  • Pictures – This is the default name of the folder that Quark collects images into. This is useful if someone has collected a job using QuarkXPress and you want to ensure all images are present.

Set Up and Management Image Paths
There are three buttons to help you set up and manage image paths in FlightCheck:

  • New Absolute Path – This hardwired path allows you to navigate to a folder where you store images and select the folder.
  • New Relative Path – This allows you to setup a flexible path that is relative to the document being preflighted. This is handy when you want to ensure all required images were included in a print job that someone sent you. You could, for example, add a new Relative Path called “:MyPictures”. FlightCheck would check this folder at the same folder level as the document that you are preflighting. If any images are found in this folder, FlightCheck will report on these images. If you have a workflow setup where you ask your customers, clients or Designers to always package a job in a certain folder structure, then relative image paths can save you a lot of guesswork, headaches and time.
  • Delete Path – This removes a pathname from the Path window and from FlightCheck’s search path for images.

Collect files, package fonts and more with FlightCheck preflight software.
