Processing a file

SimRip will operate on any document you put into it, however, it is best to start with an Adobe Photoshop color separation document, in CMYK or Multichannel mode. SimRip always outputs a Multichannel document.

Start with an open Adobe Photoshop document, in RGB mode, containing a single layer on a transparent background.

In the Photoshop menu, go to:
File/Scripts/PSP SimRip3
Click on the SimRip3 button in the Actions window, if installed.

Selecting the script prepares a new document and opens the SimRip3 window.
