Zevrix Solutions releases Graphic Inspector 2.4.6, a security update to quality control solution for images and vector graphic files. The software can check entire folders of documents for potential problems according to specific workflow requirements. This is the only tool on the market that lets the graphics industry professionals inspect both raster images and Adobe Illustrator documents.
Graphic Inspector new version addresses an issue that made it hang when retrieving icon previews for large batches of files on macOS Catalina. The problem was eventually traced to a memory bug introduced on macOS 10.15. The new update restores uninterrupted file processing of large image folders by Graphic Inspector. In the meantime, the display of icon previews on Catalina is temporarily suspended even if this option is checked in the app’s preferences. Until a workaround is found, Graphic Inspector will always display generic icons for all files.
“Graphic Inspector displays every bit of useful information about vector or raster graphic files and flags the ones that match rules you define,” writes Jay Nelson in Layers magazine. “With its combination of price, utility, and thoughtful design, Graphic Inspector is a rare gem.”
This app is designed to help users of any trade, whether it’s print, prepress, web design, or digital photography. For example, users can quickly locate files whose color mode is CMYK, format – TIFF, resolution is below 300 dpi, ICC profile isn’t “US Web Coated” and so on.
Check multiple images and vector files for potential problems
Customizable checkup presets
Common checks such as resolution, color mode, ICC profile
Professional prepress checks: spot colors, fonts in vector files, image compression and more
Search image EXIF, IPTC and GPS metadata
Graphic Inspector can be purchased from the Zevrix web site for $19.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for users of version 2 ($10 to upgrade from version 1). Graphic Inspector requires macOS 10.8-10.15.
