Imposition Studio Lite Edition
Imposition Studio is a professional software application designed to help users impose books and brochures, or other data using a rich-featured pack of tools.
It gives you the possibility to create output layouts from a single or multiple PDF files, and build custom projects comprising signature styles, binding methods, and different printing styles.
Although it comes bundled with many dedicated parameters, it sports a clean and straightforward layout.
The program enables you to make custom layouts with any number of pages, choose between a wide range of templates, and preview the layout in the primary panel.
When it comes to signature and imposition configuration settings, you are allowed to specify the printing paper size, apply front and back alignment, select the job type (books, brochures, cut and stack), enter the number of page columns and rows, adjust the page orientation, as well as set up the binding or folding parameters.
What’s more, you can pick the color mode and PDF version for the output file, choose the measurement unit, apply cropping operations, set customized slug lines, which can be tweaked in terms of position, font, and size, and provide details about your company name and logo.
Imposition Studio lets you export the project to PDF or JPG file format, save it as a template, or use the Batch Output mode for saving PDF files with the selected number of pages and signatures.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to activate the Workflow Manager for automatically creating PDF files, combine multiple PDFs into a single item, create PDF files from an image file or multiple photos, and convert spread PDF pages to a normal single page format.
Last but not least, you are allowed to convert multiple PDFs to an image file format, split PDFs into the desired number of pieces, enable the auto-pagination feature for applying page numbers to the current layout, copy the selected page number to other pages, move pages to a specific horizontal and vertical distance, and change the page rotation.
During our testing we have noticed that Imposition Studio accomplishes a task fast, provides excellent output results, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process.
All in all, Imposition Studio proves to be a reliable application that bundles a complete suite of tools which can meet the requirements of professional users.
