The Splash Acquire plug-in gives your printer/copier high-resolution color scanning capabilities... Using Adobe Photoshop (or other compatible applications), you can scan printed images in CMYK, RGB, or grayscale and work with them in Adobe Photoshop... There are no network transfer delays during scanning opera- tions, since you scan directly from the Splash Server...

Page 10

Preparing the Scan If you have added system memory to your Splash Server, it is not necessary to close the Splash Server application before you scan with the Splash plug-in... If the Server is currently processing or printing a job, you must wait until the Server has completed these tasks before you can scan with the Splash plug-in... When the plug-in is scanning an image with the printer/copier, the Server cannot print to the printer/copier... An error message appears at the Server if a job is printed while the plug-in is scanning...

Page 11

5... Choose Maximum Area to capture the largest possible scan area at reduced resolution... Choose Maximum Resolution to capture a smaller area in the scanned image, at full color resolution... (These options do not apply to the Splash PCI 1280 Server... )

Page 12

7... Select an Original Type option that matches the image being scanned... The Original Image Type setting (not available with an Acolor 620 or DocuColor 5750 printer/copier) lets you specify the type of master image you will use to scan the image (for example, mixed text and graphics, line art, or a photograph)...

Page 13

Color Options The Color options let you convert the scanned image to RGB or CMYK color, or grayscale... If you select RBG or CMYK color, Splash Acquire lets you apply color correction to the scanned image when the file is saved to disk... The preview image in the Acquire window updates instantly to show the result when you apply a Color option...

Page 14

Choosing the Zoom tool changes the pointer to a magnifying glass... Click anywhere on the preview image to see a magnified view of the scan preview... Hold down the Option key as you click to make the preview image smaller... When you double-click the Zoom tool, the preview image exactly fits the preview window area...

Page 15

Select the portion of the image you want to open in Adobe Photoshop... Since the amount of time it will take to open the image increases with the size of the selected area, you should select only the portion with which you want to work... To do this, drag the crosshair within the scan area to draw a marquee (dashed rectangle) around any portion of the image:

Page 16

The default setting for Resolution depends on the memory configuration for the computer, and the size of the scanned image... The Resolution you can use is limited by the memory and disk space available on the Server computer...

Page 17

Nearest Neighbor (the default setting) is the fastest method of interpolation, and it can be the best method for graphic art with well- defined boundaries between elements... This is the best selection for most instances... However, gradual changes of color can appear jagged when you print images using this type of interpolation...

Page 18

Choosing an Orientation If the preview image does not appear in the orientation you want, you can use the Orientation buttons to rotate the image when it is transferred into Adobe Photoshop...

Page 19

To improve the quality of RGB scans created with the Splash Acquire plug-in, use the Image Levels control in Adobe Photoshop... To do this, in the Image menu, point to the Adjust submenu, then select the Levels command... The Image Levels control window appears...

Page 21

Splash Export lets you print directly to the Xerox or Fuji Xerox printer/copier from Adobe Photoshop... If your AppleTalk network is used heavily, you can use Splash Export to avoid transferring the print job over the network... Splash Export provides a slightly different set of print options than those available with the Splash driver... Use Splash Export as an alternative to the Adobe Photoshop Print command...

Page 22

Using Splash Export If you add sufficient system memory to the Splash Server Power Macintosh, you can print with Splash Export while the Splash Server application is running... If the Server is currently processing or printing a job, you must wait until the Server has completed these tasks before you can print with Splash Export... When Splash Export is printing to the printer/copier, the Server cannot print jobs in the queue... An error message appears at the Server if a job attempts to print while Splash Export is printing...

Page 23

If the image is very large, Splash Export displays an option that allows you to skip loading the image... This opens the Splash Export dialog box faster, but a box with the Splash logo appears instead of the image in the preview window...

Page 24

The Splash Export preview window shows a full-size representation of the image on a larger white rectangle... The white rectangle represents the selected paper size... Splash Export automatically chooses the paper size that seems most appropriate for printing the full-size image... You can change the size of the image, and change the paper size and orientation before you print...

Page 25

Note: The image cannot be made larger than the paper size... If the full-sized image is larger than the paper, Splash Export automatically reduces the image size to fit the paper... The image maintains its proportions as you increase or decrease the size... You cannot stretch or distort the image...

Page 26

Nearest Neighbor (the default setting) is the fastest method of interpolation, and it can be the best method for graphic art with well-defined boundaries between elements... This is the best selection for most instances... However, grad- ual changes of color can appear jagged when you print images using this type of interpolation...

Page 27

To print to one of the paper trays, choose Tray then select the tray with the correct paper size in the pop-up menu...

Page 28

Note: For the MajestiK and Acolor printer/copiers, Splash supports Heavy Weight paper for page sizes: A4 SEF, A4 LEF, B5 SEF, B5 LEF, Letter SEF, Letter LEF, Legal, Legal13, 8x10 LEF, 9x12, and 215mmx315mm... (Paper sizes that do not indicate SEF or LEF are single edge feed sizes... ) Splash supports all Regal printer/copier Heavy Weight paper page sizes...

Page 29

You cannot use oversize (larger than A4 or Letter) transparencies with the MajestiK and Acolor 630 series copier/printers... Attempting to do so results in a paper jam or damage to the printer/copier... However, the Oversize Transparency option works with supported transparencies (A4 and Letter) for these printer/ copier models... This option produces the same results as the Normal (Paper or Transparency) option...

Page 30

Copier is for exactly matching an image that was scanned at the printer/copier... The image must be scanned with the RGB color correction type RGB Copy (see Scanning From Adobe Photoshop in this Reference manual for instructions)...

Page 31

If you have a Splash MajestiK, Regal, Acolor 93x series or Acolor 63x series printer/copier, several additional options are available... Choose Copier Options... to see more controls you can use with Splash Export... When you do this, the button changes to Imaging Params... Click the button again to return to the Imaging Parameters controls...

Page 32

When Text/Graphics/Line Art (400-line screen) is used, even if color correction is selected, appropriate colors are not always output... The colors output sometimes differ from when Photographic is selected... For documents that emphasize the color image, choose Photographic... For documents that emphasize sharp lines (such as a map), choose Text/Graphics/Line Art...

Page 33

If you ever re-install the Splash Server software on the Server Power Macintosh, you must re-install the Splash Export software afterward to export files from Adobe Photoshop...

Page 35

Splash ColorCal, unlike other calibration solutions, is an ideal tool for both business graphics and other less-technical users, as well as for the more traditional prepress users... Splash ColorCal requires no special color knowledge and does not require the use or purchase of an expensive densitometer... Splash ColorCal is more accurate than other calibration solutions because it automatically adjusts gray balance in addition to accurate linearization... Further, it uses three times more color patches, with over six times the resolution in critical regions to provide results more accurate than competitive solutions...

Page 36

Calibrating the Printer/Copier This section describes how to calibrate your printer/copier with Splash ColorCal... For best color printing results, recalibrate the printer/copier at least once daily... If printer/copier use is heavy, you may want to recalibrate as frequently as several times a day... ColorCal runs only on the Splash Server computer... The printer/copier must have 8... 5"x11", A4, or larger paper loaded to print the Calibration Target used in this process...

Page 37

This command causes ColorCal to adjust the printer/copier to compensate for scanning differences that could affect calibration quality... (This command affects ColorCal operation only... It does not affect the scanning capability of the printer/copier for other scanning operations... )

Page 38

This option averages out print density variations across the calibration target page, and ensures high-quality calibration... For best results, be sure this option is selected before you calibrate with ColorCal...

Page 39

Match the arrow on the target with the arrow on the back of the copier platen glass... Orient the target with the short edge of the paper along the left side of the copier platen... The Gray Scale target must cover the grayscale patches in the upper-left corner of the ColorCal target... (Place the Gray Scale target face- down on the glass first, then place the ColorCal target face-down on top of the Gray Scale target... )

Page 40

The Desired Density lines represent accurate CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) printing for the current CMYK color profile selected in the Verify Against pop-up menu in the Set Active Profiles dialog box (see page 43)... The Measured Density lines show actual uncalibrated printer performance as measured from the scanned Target...

Page 41

Splash ColorCal provides a special feature for calibrating to heat transfer paper used for adhering color output to non-standard media such as rice paper, rag paper, or T-shirts... To ensure consistent color output, use the original artwork for the calibration target, and activate the Mirror Image option before calibrating (see page 37)... This inverts the scanned artwork target to match the final transferred piece...

Page 42

Verifying Printer Color Accuracy To verify the accuracy of the calibration process, or to determine the amount of drift since the last calibration, click Verify Accuracy in the ColorCal main window (or click Verify in the dialog box that appears when calibration is complete)... Follow the same steps used to initially calibrate the printer (see Calibrating the Printer/ Copier on page 36)...

Page 43

To verify the accuracy of standard color output for your MajestiK or Regal printer/copier, choose the MajestiK Standard or Regal Standard profile in the Verify Against pop-up menu... This causes Splash ColorCal to verify measured densities against a benchmark MajestiK or Regal printer at Xerox laboratories...

Page 44

Note: Splash provides client software for computers running MacOS, Windows 3... 1, Windows 95, and Windows NT... Refer to the appropriate Printing to Splash... on-line manual for instructions on how to enable Splash color correction for each of these client computers...

Page 45

To print to Splash with the printer/copiers standard color characteristics (no color correction applied) deselect both RGB and CMYK color correction checkboxes in the Splash Color Options dialog box... This activates the Pass Through profile selected in the Splash ColorCal Active Profiles dialog box (see page 50)...

Page 46

Custom 1 through Custom 10 can be configured for any of the CMYK profiles provided with Splash, or for any user developed calibrated CMYK color profiles (see Creating a Custom Color Profile on page 51 for information about how to create your own CMYK custom profiles)...

Page 47

The Pass Through profile is used when Splash Color Correction is not enabled in the Splash printer driver... Pass Through can be set to use a smooth visual standard that is optimized for RGB printing, or to use standard Regal or MajestiK color output characteristics, either calibrated or uncalibrated...

Page 48

For example, if you find that you prefer a v4... 0-style CMYK SWOP profile or a user-developed calibrated CMYK SWOP profile to the standard v5... 0 SWOP profile, you can change it in Active Profiles...

Page 49

Japanese Press Enhanced is a calibrated, higher dot gain (darker) version of Japanese Press Inks... This profile prints vivid colors on your output, but remains similar to press inks in the mid-tones... Flesh tones may appear darker than normal... This profile is not intended for printing press proofs...

Page 50

This setting can also be used with the Regal or Acolor 930/935 to more closely match the output characteristics of the MajestiK or Acolor 630/635... This can be useful when printing files originally designed to be printed on a MajestiK or Acolor 630/635 with Splash color correction disabled... This can be useful also when using other commercially available color management systems that provide MajestiK or Acolor 630/635 profile settings... Splash color correction should be disabled when printing using other color management systems... When a Regal or Acolor 930/935 is used with the MajestiK Standard setting, a loss of detail in the shadows may occur with some images...

Page 51

This setting can also be used with the MajestiK or Acolor 630/635 to more closely match the output characteristics of the Regal or Acolor 930/935... This can be useful when printing files originally designed to be printed on a Regal or Acolor 930/935 with Splash color correction disabled... This can be useful also when using other commercially available color management systems that provide MajestiK or Acolor 930/935 profile settings... Splash color correction should be disabled when printing using other color management systems...

Page 52

Note: The color curves you create with the Expert edit controls are similar to those used in Adobe Photoshop, but cannot be directly exchanged with curves created in Adobe Photoshop...

Page 53

The visual density values are the first numbers in each line that begins: Kodak... The density is rounded to the nearest ... 001 units and is approximately 0... 05 for the first patch to 1... 95 for the last patch, in increments of 0... 10 units... Actual measured values are typically less for the densest patches...

Page 54

If, during the verify process immediately after calibrating, the measured curve does not closely correspond to the target curve, it may be that your printer/copier needs servicing... Splash ColorCal cannot operate properly if the printer/copier is printing unevenly or if the scanner is too far out of specification... To verify that this is the case, set the active Pass Through profile to Uncalibrated in ColorCal, then print out the full area on an A4 or 8... 5x11 page with 40% C, 40% M, and 40% Y color mix, with Splash Color Correction disabled in the Splash print driver... Examine the printed page to see if the output is an even gray with little variation... If there is significant variation, this indicates that the printer/copier needs to be serviced... If the printer/copier needs servicing, contact Xerox Service...

Page 55

Old Style Profiles contains Splash v4... 0 one-dimensional color profiles that were updated for use with Splash v5... 0... If you created any custom color profiles with Splash v4... 0, and then upgraded to Splash v5... 0, your custom profiles are updated by Splash for use with v5... 0 and then placed in this folder...

Page 57

For IPX printing from Novell NetWare, Splash creates a native Novell IPX connection from the Splash server to the Novell server... NetWare Direct delivers print jobs from a print queue on the Novell NetWare server to the Splash Server for processing... Once NetWare Direct is set up and activated, it operates automatically on the Splash Server each time a Novell client prints to the designated queue on the Novell server... Splash NetWare Direct is simple to set up and supports all Novell Ethernet frame types...

Page 58

Setting Up TCP/IP Direct Printing to Splash This section describes how to set up the Splash Server to receive print jobs from clients on a TCP/IP network... To do this you need to connect the Splash Server to the TCP/IP network using the appropriate network cable, and set up the TCP/IP control panel... You can then enable TCP/IP print services in the Splash Server application preferences...

Page 59

6... Enter the Router address if needed... A network router maintains a list of IP addresses for two or more groups of network devices... The router then uses the list of addresses to direct network data to the appropriate location on the network... To enter two or more router addresses, press the Return key after you enter each address...

Page 60

Note: The NetWare Direct window appears also when you choose Enterprise Networking... For information about how to use the NetWare Direct window to set up Splash for IPX printing, see page 73...

Page 61

Append UNIX Hostname to User Name When selected, the network host name is added to the print jobs owner name that appears in the print queue and job log at the Splash Server... For example, when the user Diane prints from the UNIX host Santana the print jobs owner name is [email protected] When this option is not selected, the print jobs owner name is Diane... For most situations, do not select this option...

Page 62

The Splash Server can be set up to accept TCP/IP print jobs from only the machines you specify in the Hosts... LPD file... This file is located in the Extras folder within the Splash Folder on the Splash Server... You can edit the Hosts... LPD file with any text editor (such as SimpleText) to enable TCP/IP printing from only specific host names, IP addresses, or ranges of IP addresses... This allows print access control at the individual, group, and subnet levels... Specific examples of how to set up host names are provided in the Hosts... LPD file on the Splash Server...

Page 63

Note: You must set up and enable TCP/IP Direct at the Splash Server before you can set up an LPR print queue for Splash on Windows NT... Windows NT will report an error during print queue setup if the Splash Server is not identified as an LPD server on the network...

Page 64

If Microsoft TCP/IP Printing appears in the Network Services list, this service is already enabled... Close the Network control panel, then go on to Setting Up the Splash Server TCP/IP Print Queue on page 65...

Page 65

Follow these steps to connect to the Splash Server and create a print queue that sends jobs to Splash over the TCP/IP network... You need the following items to complete this procedure:

Page 66

3... Select My Computer then click Next... A list of printer ports appears... You must add an LPR port to support TCP/IP printing...

Page 67

6... Enter the address for the Splash Server, and if desired, enter a name for the server... (The name you enter here appears in the list of ports in the Add Printer Wizard... ) Click OK to continue...

Page 68

9... Insert the Splash Win NT Client disk in the computers floppy drive, then click Browse...

Page 69

12... Select the model of your Xerox or Fuji Xerox printer/copier from the Printers list, then click Next...

Page 70

14... Choose Shared to allow other Windows NT and Windows 95 clients to connect to this print queue for printing to Splash... If you do not choose Shared, only this computer will be able to use the LPR port to print to Splash...

Page 71

Windows NT asks you to insert system software disks for the operating systems you selected in the previous step... Insert the floppy disks or CD-ROMs and click OK as directed by the Add Printer Wizard... When all files are copied, the Add Printer Wizard asks if you want to print a test page...

Page 72

Set up for the Splash TCP/IP print queue is complete... For instructions on how to use the print queue from a Windows 95 or Windows NT client on the network, see the on-line manuals Printing to Splash From Windows NT or Printing to Splash From Windows 95, provided with the Splash Server...

Page 73

To set up the Novell Server for NetWare Direct use PCONSOLE from a client connected to the Novell Server to create a print server and a print queue for Splash... Instructions are provided for running PCONSOLE from both a NetWare 3... 1... x Server and a NetWare 4... 0... x Server...

Page 74

1... From a workstation, log in to the server as a user with sufficient privileges to create a print queue (Admin or Supervisor)...

Page 75

If you do not know the volume name, press Insert, then select the Organizational Unit for your server... The mounted volume names appear... The volume names should correspond with the server name (for example, TESTLAB_40... SYS... ) Select the volume for your server, then press Enter to create the print queue...

Page 76

3... In the Print Server text box, type the name of the Novell print server you created for Splash... (SPLASH was the print server name recommended in the setup instructions... )

Page 77

You activate NetWare Direct from the Splash Server application... In the Server menu choose Preferences, click the Network button, then select the Enable Enter- prise Networking checkbox... This opens and connects NetWare Direct when the Splash Server application starts, and disconnects and closes NetWare Direct when the server application is closed... NetWare Direct runs in the background while the Server application is running... When a PC client workstation sends a print job to the Splash print queue on the Novell file server, NetWare Direct automatically opens and delivers the print job to the Splash Server...

Page 78

If, during NetWare Direct setup, a list of Novell file servers does not appear when you click the Browse button under Print Queue Info, you may need to specify the Novell servers Ethernet frame type in the Mac IPX control panel... To do this:

Page 79

If the network protocol for the Splash Server is changed from Ethernet to Modem Port or Printer Port (LocalTalk), this does not interfere with the ability of Splash NetWare Direct to print jobs to Splash from Novell NetWare print queues... Novell Server print jobs resume downloading to the Splash Server after the Server is restarted...

Page 81

Upgrading the Splash Server... 83

Page 82

This chapter explains how to install the Splash Web Queue Manager upgrade and how to set up the Splash Server to allow remote clients (including MacOS, Windows 3... 1, Windows 95, Windows NT and UNIX-based systems) to connect to Splash... Refer to the appropriate Printing to Splash... on-line manual for instructions on how to use the Splash Web Queue Manager from a client computer...

Page 83

Important: Do not remove the original Splash Key from the ADB chain... Before proceeding with the next step, make sure that both the original Splash Key and the Upgrade Key (and your keyboard and mouse) are all connected to the Splash servers ADB chain...

Page 84

After you complete the upgrade procedure, you can shut down the Splash Server Power Macintosh and remove the Upgrade Key from the ADB chain... (Do not remove the original Splash Key, and do not unplug devices from the ADB chain while the server computer is powered-up... )

Page 85

Locate the original Splash PCI v5... 0 software CD-ROM provided with your Splash Server before you begin... To install the Splash Web Queue Manager:

Page 86

Use the TCP/IP control panel to set up an Internet address for the Splash Server... You will need to assign the Splash Server a static Internet address so clients can reliably locate the Splash Web Queue Manager on the network...

Page 87

6... Enter the Router address if needed... A network router maintains a list of IP addresses for two or more groups of network devices... The router then uses the list of addresses to direct network data to the appropriate location on the network... To enter two or more router addresses, press the Return key after you enter each address...

Page 88

The Splash Web Queue Manager is enabled... Clients on a TCP/IP network with Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Explorer installed can connect to the Splash Web Queue Manager to remotely view and manage print jobs on the Splash Server...

Page 89

You will need to provide the Internet address for the Splash Web Queue Manager to clients so they can connect to the Splash Server over the Internet or Intranet... This address will include the IP address (or DNS assigned name) for the Splash Server (entered in the TCP/IP control panel), followed by /splash/... For example:

Page 91

This chapter contains helpful tips for successful printing with Splash... For complete instructions on how to use specific features of the printer/copier, refer to the appropriate printer/copier user manual...

Page 92

Changing the Paper Size in a Tray Before you change a paper size in a printer/copier paper tray, choose Stop Processing on the Splash Server to avoid misprinting an active job... After you insert a different size cassette, choose Continue Processing to resume printing... Refer to the printer/copier manual for complete instructions on how to change the paper size... See the Splash Set-up Manual for instructions on how to start and stop the Splash Server...

Page 93

Printing Full-Bleed Images To print full-bleed Letter-size images at 400 dpi in both directions on Splash Servers that support this feature, select an image size that is slightly larger than 8 1/2" x 11" (8 3/4" x 11 1/4", for example) in your application and print on 9" x 12" paper from a cassette tray, or choose Full Bleed Letter on Oversize in the Page Setup dialog box Paper list and print from the Bypass tray...

Page 94

Interruptions During Stack or Sort Printing If the Allow copier interrupt option is selected in the Splash Server Preferences, and a print job is interrupted while performing Stack or Sort operations with the printer/copier sorter, Splash reprints all copies of the page that was printing when the interruption occurred... This causes one page of the print job to have more copies than expected... This will occur, for example, when a user interrupts a print job tem- porarily to use the copier, or when the current paper tray runs out of paper during the print job...

Page 95

Disconnecting the Splash Interface Cable To avoid risk of damage, always shut down the Splash Server and turn off power to the printer/copier when you disconnect the printer cable from the Splash Server or from the printer/copier...
