Apple still has the ability to create ColorSync filters on Leopard but does not seem to have anywhere to apply them. The filters are an Abstract class and in Tiger they where in the print dialog of apple preview. In both Tiger and Leopard users have the ability to create there own filters in the ColorSync utility and use them with preview. When users created their own filters they did not seem to become abstract profiles or the abstracts where created on the fly when the filter was used and then not stored.
Abstracts have some significant power but few apps address that class of profile. The ColorSync Utility provides abstracts but doesn’t allow for their creation.
Question 1: Is there any place to apply abstract filters in Leopard. Colorsync still supports abstract as a class so how could it not be there.
Question 1: Is there anyway to get the ColorSync utility to create an abstract class profile with the features available in the utility. I keep wondering if some of the other features in the ColorSync filter utility are not usable when creating an abstract profile.
Question 3: Is there any other program that creates abstract class profiles and if there is - How do the abstracts get applied.
P.S. This ain’t my first rodeo… Please don’t tell me that I can use photoshop to Sepiatone and that is all the ColorSync filters do. They do a ton of things and they don’t seem to be utilized anywhere. Sorry for the disclaimer but I have posted to a couple of other list and people keep telling me how to do things without filters.
