With celum IV.8, the HELIOS asset conversion integration brings important functionalities to pre-press production.

The HELIOS integration also allows users to easily implement a clean color workflow and add digital watermarks to images.

Unfortunately, using high resolution images online still seems to be unnecessarily expensive and time consuming. By integrating NeptuneLabs’ FSI Viewer, celum removed time and cost from the equation. celum users are now able to preview images in full resolution and can magnify image sections and objects from different angles, or even in different states, without needing to install a browser plug-in.
