The main purpose of the Ghent Workgroup is to create practical workflow tools that make your daily production tasks easier and faster. We are always adding or updating these tools, which include:
Settings for the most commonly used applications in professional publishing workflows, to automatically and properly create and check PDF files. Simply download and install in your favorite application.
Using the test suites developed or distributed by the GWG, you can test your output device or workflow applications. This ensures your workflow correctly handles critical features such as transparency, overprint etc.
PDF/X-Plus Creation and Preflight specifications and Best Practices are the core work of GWG. They include documentation that explain the theoretical sides of the specifications and include deliverable reference implementations.
