Zone Trapping

Zone Trapping

     Trap zones may be created using various existing tools for generating trap zones in different desktop page layout and viewing applications such as Adobe Acrobat.
    I-Trap™ Zone tool allows to create overlapping rectangle zones, edit them and set different trapping parameters in zones. Polygonal and elliptic zone shapes will be offered in a future release.

Miter Trapping

Miter Trapping

    Miter trapping is the art of detecting various corner conditions and adjusting the trap brush to produce better corner results - that's what I-Trap does.

Image Trapping

Image Trapping

     Image trapping is one of the most important features of I-Trap™. The ability to properly trap image data is one of the features that define high-end high quality trapping.
    I-Trap™ provides an extensive set of tools for image trapping providing the needed support for just about any type of image trapping.

Spot to Image Special Case

    Spot colors can be set as a special case to selectively trap image to spot colors while not trapping images to process colors.
