WELCOME TO SPOOL PILOTAGE!
The easiest way to convert anything into graphics
Two Pilots has released Spool Pilot for Mac, a Macintosh application that allows you to save printouts from arbitrary applications in several popular graphic formats as easily as in a PDF file. From the point of view of the user, the procedure of saving printouts is very much the same.
Mac OS X made PDF (Portable Document Format, invented by Adobe Corporation) into a kind of virtual electronic paper by allowing users to either directly print onto a printer or into a multi-page PDF file.
PDF is a great format. It is flexible but memory hungry. It is platform independent but hard to modify. It is very efficient but incredibly complex inside. As everything in this world, PDF has both advantages and disadvantages.
With the help of Spool Pilot, users can now choose among several different sorts of virtual paper as additional ways to store their output: JPEG, JPEG-2000, TIFF, PNG.
The only absolute advantage is your ability to choose.
If there is a format that we do not support, please let us know... Spool Pilot is modular, and support for many other formats may be added separately, at any moment. There are no extra modules at this moment, but they will appear on demand.
Spool Pilot costs $44.95 for a single-user license. For more information about Spool Pilot contact Nonna L. Garbar at Two Pilots. Voice: (773) 764-5306. Fax: (707) 924-1267 http://www.colorpilot.com
