Those sound amazing, I like that you can adjust without changing the black to 4c, which can be a problem.
I will check it out, doubtful my boss will go for it, but a girl can dream :laugh:

Yeah, I use the hide selection quite a bit

It's when I need to edit an image in photoshop that  I can't get thru sometime
why doesn't acrobat have hide selection?

I edit images for ink density- a lot
worst part of the job for me

Tracy, you can select the image on top with Pitstop and hide it and then you can select it with the Edit Object tool. Once you click it with the Edit Object tool the hidden item from Pitstop will return but the object you want to edit will be selected.

Tell your boss that it will save the company money (that should help). There are also many print quality benefits. I'll PM you a link to the article I wrote as it might have some useful stuff to convince your boss.

Get outta here! no way!

I'm going to try it.

You can use device links right in PitStop for the specific images, all cmyk images and/or all other cmyk objects. There are various tools that can make the links. Generally you have to buy the link software to make the links. Some vendors sell the particular device links as software.  Using a color server like Greg talked about is a probably the best choice since they are generally more feature rich. But with a link alone, you can achieve much of the same net result at a lower entry point. I can process some samples for you if you like.
