“QuarkXPress 9, Photoshop, Illustrator and FreeHand MX are the publishing applications that I use FlightCheck to preflight. I usually preflight the native files and have been using FlightCheck since version 4. It’s become a standard application that I have to have. It doesn’t have to run inside any other application, so it never really causes any crashing problems. I find it very easy and quick to preflight files once I have it setup.”

FlightCheck’s preflighting can check all file types used by this design consultant, plus other file types. Preflighting color and image files for print quality is easy with Markzware’s preflight solution.
