EFI has released new versions of its proofing and colour management solutions for digital imaging and printing, Designer Edition and Photo Edition 4.0.

The fourth generation of their tools now include support for the HP Designjet 30 and 130 and their CMYKplus colour management standard, in addition to more than 30 other inkjet printers, EFI claims.

EFI Photo Edition 4.0 is a printing and proofing solution for digital photographers which will automatically convert RGB camera data to the CMYK colour space, export as a CMYK-TIFF file and output the data in proof form.

Designer Edition and Photo Edition both now support a cross Mac OS X and Windows environment. For seamless integration into any JDF-supported workflow, both products are now compatible with JDF v1.2, the company claims.

EFI Designer Edition and EFI Photo Edition 4.0 will be available in June, pricing yet to be confirmed.
