Annotations added to images, such as line drawings or sketches to aid retouching, for example, can be either included or excluded from processing when preparing variants for output. When a variant is to be processed using the PSD file format (chosen from the Process Recipe Basic tab) and annotations are included, they are rendered as individual objects in a layer that can be edited in Photoshop.
- Select the appropriate recipe from the Process Recipes list. The recipe is then highlighted in orange or silver when the focus is moved. When multiple recipes are to be selected for processing, the following selection will have to be made for each recipe.
- In the Process Recipe panel (located under the Process Recipes list), select the Metadata tab.
- Under Workflow, deselect the Annotations check box to exclude the retouch notes or sketches from processed images. When selected, the annotations will be rendered as part of the image. When the variant is to be processed as a PSD, the annotations are included as individual objects in a separate layer that can be edited in Photoshop.
- Selecting the option will automatically save the choice to the recipe.
