PrinTao is the new professional Stand-Alone printing application introducing layout-functionality for images and text. For many workflow requirements, using an additional layout-software won't be necessary anymore.

Take advantage of PrinTao: You are able to create your individual layouts with text and images at a high efficiency. The integration of image processing, layout functionality and printing by a single software tool is unique.

Here are some key features of "SilverFast PrinTao":
Positioning Images
With PrinTao, images can easily be freely positioned over auxiliary lines
positioned and centered automatically freely rotated and mirrored scaled
cropped adjusted to paper size zoomed and scaled within their own frame
This way, an optimal, paper-saving positioning is possible, reducing overall printing cost.
Adding Text
An individual text is assigned to each image. The text can be positioned above, underneath or besides the picture. The text can be aligned to the left, right or centered.
Aside from custom text, information from the IPTC or EXIF meta data can be assigned to the images as well. Custom text can be added, which is freely selectable in its character font, size, style, color and adjustment. This, for example, makes it possible to easily create headlines.
Creating Print Sheets
When using PrinTao, a print job does not necessarily only consist of one page, containing text and images. PrinTao supports multi-page print jobs, and each page can contain its own, individual layout and design. In order to work on fine details, it is even possible to zoom images directly on the page. This allows a very creative workflow.
Creating Templates
You don't have to start your layout from scratch- PrinTao supports templates, allowing you to reduce repeptitive steps in your layour process. You can either use pre-defined templates included in PrinTao, or create your own.
Pre-defined Templates: One pre-defined template can be selected for all pages of the print job. Or, the user can assign a different template to each page. Importing images is as simple as a one key-click or Drag&Drop. The images can be adjusted in their size or parts of the image can easily be cropped.
User-defined Templates: In order to create user-defined templates, our pre-defined templates can be used as a starting point, and modified to the user's needs. It is also possible to create a user-defined template by freely positioning text and images on the print sheet
True-to color Printing
Images can be printed true-to color by selecting a printer and paper-specific ICC profile as well as the appropriate Rendering Intent. ICC profiles describe the color spaces of the input and output devices, like scanners, monitors or printers. Rendering Intents are color conversion methods, with which one specifies, how a conversion between two color spaces is performed.

Functions limited in Demo mode.
