Fuji XMF

This procedure will enable you to apply Alwan PrintStandardizer (APS/X) Tone Reproduction Curves Adjustment files (TRCA) into Fuji XMF RIP.

Depending on the version of the Fuji XMF RIP installed, two systems of curves management can be used. The older one, named Calibration Manager, is essentially used to linearize CTP and its successor ColorPath The organizer can manage press curves, ICC profiles… Procedures for both software will be presented below, but when possible, prefer the use of ColorPath Organizer.
