Alternative solutions for discontinued
PDFX-ready Online Tools

As reported recently the PDFX-ready Online Tools are discontinued per 25.10.18 12 p.m..

Here are some alternative solutions for all users missing the PDFX-ready Online Tools:

  • PDF Preflight can be performed identically with the preflight profiles from PDFX-ready for Adobe Acrobat Pro (and Callas pdfToolbox). The only difference is the preflight report which had some additional information about the PDF and a much nicer design. Responding to serveral demands PDFX-ready made available the template of the enhanced Preflight report for download for users of Callas pdfToolbox.
  • For Color Preflight there is unfortunately no alternative solution. We have used DocBees Profile Tagger from ColorLogic for this task in the Online Tools. Because of low sales ColorLogic has decided to stop development and sale of the software. In case of interest please contact ColorLogic directly.
  • The ISO<–PSO Converter was using the DeviceLink profiles from the European Color Initiative. Those can be downloaded for free from the download page of ECI. They can be used with all tools which can execute DeviceLinks (e.g. Callas pdfToolbox Desktop and Server, Enfocus PitStop Pro and Server, ColorLogic ZePrA).
