basICColor DeviL4 + SaveInk

High-End ICC Device Link Creation and Editing 

ICC device link profiles are becoming increasingly popular – with good reason!  ICC device link profiles produce higher precision color space transformations, otherwise only found in proprietary solutions. The applications which require ICC device links include high-quality proofing and special process printing workflows which exchange data between different printing processes. Device links will maintain the black channel to save ink, while recalculating the color structure.

basICColor DeviL simplifies the job of generating ICC device link profiles, including conversion between CMYK, RGB, and grayscale. The basICColor DeviL achieves highest quality conversions from RGB to CMYK separations because of dynamic color space compression. No other method approaches this optimized result.


ICC DeviceLink Profile Refinement

The basICColor algorithms produce the ideal ICC device links for ink reduction, separation conversion, or normalising the incoming data.


ICC DeviceLink Editiing

Since Photoshop is used to fine tune device links with all the familiar tools. There is no learning curve and the results are predictable.




Clever black generation reduces the cost of more expensive process color inks. This level of quality control also makes it easier to run the job, while maintaining optimized color accuracy.



  • Creation of ICC device link profiles from CMYK, RGB and grayscale ICC profiles
  • Device Link Editing via an image editing program (eg. Adobe Photoshop): color corrections, color conversions, etc.
  • Easy to use with Presets
  • Specific definition of the color separation / preserve primaries, duplex and triplex colors / preserve black and gray color
  • Blackpoint compensation in the ICC device link profile / dynamic compression between source and destination profile
  • Convert TIFF files with ICC device link profiles to test the device link quality
