Phocus 1.1.3 for Mac

To support special user requests,a new Reproduction tool that allows the use of local input profiling and working with a linear response curve has been added in Phocus. In addition, there are extra choices for color read-outs in RGB, LAB, or CMYK. Both these functions have been asked for by several museums working with our products for high-end reproduction. All these customers have chosen to work with the Hasselblad's multi-shot products, because of their unique capabilities for reproduction of color and detail. Our references include the Metropolitan Museum in New York, Trinity College in Dublin, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, The Vatican in Rome and the National Gallery of Oslo.

For customers working with high volume production or via a network, a simple hot folder concept has been added. Any active folder becomes “hot” using the “Export New Images Automatically”, available through the File menu. This means that any file placed in this folder is processed automatically, using the current Export settings. Tethered shooting into this “hot folder” by use of a predefined setup, makes this new feature a very powerful tool!
