1) Support for Canon iPF printers
 
The newest Mirage Version now offers support for current 5, 6, 8 & 12 color iPF printers from Canon.
Both Mirage Versions “Mirage Master Edition Canon” and “Mirage Canon Edition iPF 8&12 Color” are available for order immediately. If you are already using a Canon printer in addition to an Epson printer, you can order updates for a reasonable price. Just look on our website or contact your retailer.

3) Add Files Retrospectively

 

Mirage provides the option of adding JPEG, TIFF, or PDF files without having to close the print dialog first. Click the “Add Files” button or simply drag and drop the files into the Mirage preview area. It does not matter whether Mirage was started as a plug-in from an Adobe application or the Mirage Stand-Alone version is used. This new function can be used to make optimal use of “empty” space, for example, and save paper in the process.

 

 

4) Add-on: Mirage Job Archive

 

NOTE: The Mirage Job Archive is only available if you have a valid license for this add-on.


The new Mirage Job Archive is a powerful tool. You can archive print jobs and reprint these again as necessary without any changes, without having to reopen the data contained in the print job.

 

 

5) New Color Management Functions

 

Sometimes files without color management (missing ICC  Profile) have to be opened. Mirage 3.0 displays a message indicating this problem when a file of this type is opened and provides the option of assigning an ICC profile to the file when it is opened. A colortrue printout is then possible based on the assigned profile.
For example, if you open an RGB file (such as a photo from a digital camera or scanner) and the menu on the left appears, reliable color reproduction is not possible if you do not know the original color space of the source file. Usually in this case, the best compromise is to assign the “sRGB” profile.

6) Simultaneous Work from Different Adobe® Applications

 

Printing with Mirage just got much easier! Mirage 3.0 makes it possible to transfer files from different Adobe® programs, such as InDesign®, Illustrator®, or Photoshop®, to a Mirage print job one after the other.
As already mentioned in point 3, you can also add additional files. This is ideal for making optimal use of the media type.
Adobe Applications All plug-ins and the “Mirage Stand-Alone” application now form one strong unit, where all images/documents come together.Active connections to the Mirage plug-ins in Adobe® programs can be closed at any time by clicking the connection symbol in question (bottom left of the Mirage main window). For example, clicking the Photoshop® symbol easily removes all images from Mirage which were opened by the Photoshop® plug-in in Mirage.

 

 

7) Insert (Overlay) Logo

 

You can now add your logo to the files to be printed. The “Logo Overlay” function saves the time and effort of manually adding a logo to each image in a third-party image processing program.
The new “Logo Overlay” menu item on the left side of the Mirage main window can be used to select the logo and view the logo placement options.

 

 

 

8) PROOF-Extension: Personalized Logo in Media Wedge

 

NOTE: The Mirage PROOF-Extension is an optional additional module that is only available if you
have a valid license for this extension.

Alternatively to the preset standard proof logo, the new Mirage Version provides the option of printing a personalized logo next to the media wedge. The settings required for this can be found in the “Settings...” menu under the “Proof” tab. An RGB or RGBA TIFF file can be selected as a logo file.

9) Improved Overview of the Document List

 

The overview function in the document window has beenadapted to include the new options provided by this Mirageversion.
In one look you can see which application/plug-in has transferred images or documents to Mirage.
The image on the left provides a structured view of the files from different applications (Photoshop Documents, Illustrator Artboards, and pages from InDesign).

10) Additional Menu Item "Print Job Management"

What's new brochure right here.

Mirage has long provided the option to delay print jobs. This is ideal for when changes still have to made on the printer, for example, before the print job can actually start, such as placing the correct media type in the printer.
If more than one user has access to one printer, jobs from one user can be prioritized by delaying jobs from other users.
In the case of multiple requests to automate this function via droplets or Stored Settings, this setting can now be defined directly in the Mirage main window.
If you have a “Mirage Job Archive” license, you can go to the “Print Job Management” menu in the Mirage main window and define for each job whether the print job is permanently archived by activating the “Archive print job permanently” selection field.

 

 

11) Mirage Does Not Automatically Close

 

The print dialog no longer closes automatically after a print job has been carried out. This new function makes it possible to print the job again with the same or changed settings.

 

 

12) Mirage Production Edition: New Menu Item: "Ink Density Adjustment"

 

NOTE: These settings are only available for Epson Solvent printers from SureColor series SC-30xxx, 50xxx, and 70xxx.


With Mirage Production Edition 3.0, it is now also possible to adjust the ink density for each print job and each print color individually without having to switch to the advanced settings of the media presets.


NOTE: The changes made in this quick setting are not saved permanently. When the Mirage print dialog is closed  and then reopened, the preset values given in the “Settings...” menu under the “Custom Media” tab > Your Medium > “Advanced Settings” are used again.
