Resources for Ovation Pro

Colour printing aids

CMY colour samples size 23k; author David Scott
Ovation files which consist of two A4 pages of colour samples. These consist of small areas of solid colour each about 20x5mm in size covering all the combinations of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow from 0 to 100% in 20% steps, a total of 216 samples.

When needing to match a colour for a specific printer setting, print out these test pages on that printer and choose the colour nearest to that desired, or make suitable adjustments when the colour is between two of the samples. Note that it is essential for the tests to be done with the same settings of printer resolution, dithering, paper quality, etc. as the actual work, since the reproduction of colours varies considerably with all these factors.

Index cross reference size 3k; author John van Vredenburch

Templates size 40k; author John Ferguson
An alternative set of (WIMP) templates. Now updated for Ovation Pro version 2.52

All the files are archives and may be extracted using David Pilling's SparkFS, SparkPlug, or Spark. A version of SparkPlug comes with Ovation Pro. If, for some reason or another, you do not have any of these, then a self-extracting version of SparkPlug may be downloaded.
