Benefits over Adobe Photoshop

Benefits over Adobe Photoshop
Top 10 Reasons
why you should be using
rather than
Adobe PhotoShop™
It’s all about the workflow. Adobe PhotoShop
is a very useful, feature rich desktop design program. The reality however, is that by
its very nature it is limited to including design-only tools that are generally best suited for small format graphics creation only. Unlike SignLab, which
includes an abundance of design and production tools specific to creation of signage and other large format display graphics, PhotoShop™ simply
cannot get you from project start to finish nearly as quickly and efficiently as SignLab. Here’s just a few major reasons why.
Apply contour cut lines to bitmap and vector
objects directly in your design application.
SignLab includes 100’s of cutter drivers and
allows you to apply cut lines directly to bitmap
and vector graphics instantly! Avoid complicated
work-arounds or having to buy separate cutting
applications when using PhotoShop™.
Complete bitmap and vector design application.
All the drawing tools you need for vector or bitmap
designs. PhotoShop™ is a photo bitmap editing
application only and you will need to buy and learn
yet another software package for vector design/
editing tools.
Built-in RIP software with support for all the
most widely used large format digital printers
(SignLab Print and Cut only). High fidelity color
printing can be achieved directly from SignLab. Yet
again with PhotoShop™, a separate application is
required in order to send jobs for output resulting
in added costs, increased learning curve and less
streamlined workflow.
Manufacturer vinyl and color palettes included.
Customizable, dockable palettes from commonly
used media manufacturers are included so that
color matching is made quick and easy. Since
PhotoShop™ is not a “production-type” software
package, “as close as you can get” is the rule.
InstantReplay™. Simply drag and drop special
effects, shadows, colors, outlines and many other
design elements from one object directly onto
another and watch them be instantly applied.
An enormous time saver from having to try and
recreate them from scratch for each object.
Intuitive shape and block nesting. Cut objects
and print objects are automatically nested onto
media using an advanced algorithm. The media
savings you are able to achieve alone are reason
enough to be using SignLab instead of a desktop
design application.
PowerWeed™. A favorite feature that is used
multiple times per day by shops creating vinyl cut
signage. Automatic and easily adjustable cut lines
in and around text and graphics no matter how
detailed provides a fast way in which to weed vinyl
signage. Only found in SignLab.
Automatic “badge” creation with variable data
and serialization. Instantly create badges, door
plates, name tags, ID cards, signs that use identical
layouts but include different content and other
similar types of production with a simple content
replacement process. Saves hours by not having to
achieve the same result using a manual method in
a desktop design application.
Multiple plug-in support. “Send to” plug-in’s
installed into other desktop applications for
simplified transfer of graphics files. Streamlines
workflow when working with design elements
created in other applications and reduces
possibility of unwanted changes to files by having
to use “export/import” functions.
Advanced text layout features specific to
unique production workflows. SignLab includes
text composition tools that address unique
production features that a desktop design
application simply does not. Features such as
automated compressions to sign blank and others
simplify what could otherwise be tedious, laborintensive processes.
