This is a nice way to preview and test the program. However, one cannot save any separation work. So essentially it's a non working demo.
Good to try, I did some nice stuff with it... tried to save the seps to examine, however, the separator software will not save any work. You'll get a colorspace inconsistency error due to the nerfed application.
Oh well... at least someone was kind enough to post this non working demo
PS, I don't have any permission problems, I'm curious if ANYONE has used this successfully
may be that sounds weird, but I have no problems with ICISS.
The application was running under MacOS X 10.6.8:
Once the application has been installed, the original binaries has been replaced with patched. After that I made a test - an image in RGB color model was converted to multichannel CMYK+RGB using the script from lesson #7 of [URL="http://download.aurelon.com/Manuals/ICISS/Tutorial.zip"]Tutorial[/URL].
Preview from ICISS Scanner:
all channels are turned on
RGB are turned off
After the image was successfully converted it was opened in Photoshop:
As for me, it works! :)
Well I do see the examples. Did you create that multichannel file, or was it a sample file already provided?
I've got the program running in Snow Leopard with the provided patches. However there is an error when trying to save out seps. Conflicting color spaces error.
I've looked through all the tutorials, which are not very elegantly done, and the tutorials are no help. Scripts I've saved/created don't work.
I'll try it again, but I still believe this is a broken app. I'd love to hear from any other users that have gotten this working...
In any case, it was still good to see even if it's not functioning properly....

Colorwizard please re-zip with a different archiver and reupload filez
maybe this is a problem with broken files of forks

For those who don't know what to do with binaries:
- Right-click on the app-file
- Choose Show Package Content
- Move the patched binary to the folder Contest:MacOS
- Confirm the replacement if necessary.
Thanks for replying.
I got it working.
I've got to say the user manual/tutorials are poorly written! But hey, what do you want for free, right? :)
It was a little tricky, but end the end, I made a custom script for 12 channels, got it to separate out into photoshop with all 12 channels intact, however I'm not sure the color mapping alterations got processed correctly.
I'll have to verify this...
but so far, it does seem to be working. Verification test results coming soon!
Ok this works amazingly well!
Many many thanks color wizard!
Tricky to use, however, I just made a spectacular 12 color sep.
The color mapping tool is wonderful, I wish Adobe would incorporate this level of finesse within Photoshop
Fineart Silkscreen needs lots of colors, the top screen printing shops easily and often hit 30 - 50 colors
As a user of Photoshop since 2.5 I can honestly tell you, it's a great program. But ICISS's color mapping kicks PS butt on this.
try it, and you'll know
That being said, I did tweak the ICISS seps in PS, minor level adjustements, etc afterwards.
My friend is working on a 20 color job now and that's small
the last one hit over 100 colors
I reinstalled the app on 10.5.8, I replaced the bin's with the patched ones ( no permission problem this time ) but the app still remain in demo mode ( no dongle, no serial )...
I have the Separator & Scanner working fine, the Lab to Dot I assume needs a spectrophotometer or similar to use?
But the Editor says it needs read+write access to the Root HD, see attached...
