PhotoType settings

This tutorial is written to explain the steps needed to set up a MeasureColor server to send reports to Phototype. To setup PhotoType you need credentials for the PhotoType server. Also, you will need to know which customers' jobs will have to be sent to PhotoType.

All settings can be done in the System management module.

Enabling PhotoType in the user group of your choice

  • Go to General → User groups
  • Select the User group to add PhotoType to, or create a new User group
  • Add a new key as in the example below
  • Don't forget to save the User group with the green button
  • Now all Users from that User group that log into MeasureColor will have PhotoType enabled in their client workstations

More info about User groups and settings can be found here.
