FREDERICK MD — June 15 2010 — The Barbados Advocate is live with Anygraaf’s automatic color correction system ImageEd. Sales and installation of the system were handled by Intergraph Corporation Anygraaf’s distribution partner in the Caribbean.

ImageEd provides automatic color correction of images for publication via site-defined parameters. Once images have been color corrected they are then converted to either CMYK or grayscale depending upon the desired channel chosen for that image. This allows for a more streamlined & organized color correction process as well as consistency in the tonality of published images.

Color adjustments within ImageEd are done in three-dimensional color space allowing for colors to be adjusted and maintained accurately. The automatic adjustment process optimizes colors so that details are not lost within fully saturated areas of images; it analyzes sharpness and noise levels within an image then adjusts details accordingly. ImageEd also offers a manual mode which provides an easy-to-use color adjustment interface from which users may fine-tune images by hand.

The Barbados Advocate is located in Bridgetown Barbados. Established in 1895 The Advocate is the second oldest newspaper in Barbados. The tabloid-sized newspaper is published five days per week and has a circulation of approximately 15 000.
