Low-resolution image file used for layout purposes prior to creating film.

The required position of a graphic, illustration, or photo that is to be inserted into a file on a high-end prepress system or directly to the film itself.
For position only. A low-resolution image file that is used for layout purposes before creating film.
For Position Only. Low resolution temporary image that is replaced before file is imaged.
