The process of preparing artwork, photographs, transparencies, or computer-generated art for printing by separating it into the four primary printing colours (cyan, magenta, yellow and black).
Separating the areas of a piece to be printed into its component spot and process ink colours. Each colour to be printed must have its own printing plate.
The process of separating the colours of a picture. The resulting separated file is then used to print to a printing device.
Set of four halftone negatives for making plates for 4-color process printing.
Photographic process separating film into the four colours used to print cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks. Also known as CMYK.
The separation of multi-coloured original art by camera or laser scan techniques to produce individual negatives for each separated colours. The four common separations: yellow, magenta (red), cyan (blue) plus black are required for full-colour (four-colour) printing.
A process of converting full-colour images into a limited number of primary colors. Additive primary colours (red, green and blue) are used by the scanner, and the subtractive primary colours (cyan, magenta and yellow) plus black are used for printing press colour separation.
The process of separating colour originals into the four primary printing colours.
Film intermediates made from the colour originals to determine and reproduce the proportional amount of cyan, magenta, yellow and black in the original. These films are used to produce printing plates for each colour.
The process of separating the colours into four separate films to make the four printing plates
Separating the colours of full colour photo or illustration to enable a printer to print it in the four basic process colours. (see Scanning)
The process whereby the four (CMYK) process printing colours are separated into their primary colours to allow for professional printing.
An image separated into the four process colours (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) and placed on four different plates, each representing one of the colours.
An image that has been separated into the four process colours
1. Technique of using a camera, scanner or computer to divide continuous-tone colour images into four halftone negatives. 2. The product resulting from colour separating and subsequent four-colour process printing. *Also called separation.
To separate artwork/copy/digital files into subtractive CMYK for printing.
The process of separating originals into the various colour elements required to replicate the original by the printing process to be used.
To screen print a multi coloured design the colours must all be individually separated as in the screen printing process each colour is printed separately.
The separation of full colour artwork or transparencies into the four primary printing ink colours (see: CMYK).
The process of separating colour originals into the primary printing colour components.
The separation of the colours making up a full colour original; usually into the three primaries plus black, each of which will be reproduced by a separated printing plate.
See Process colour separation.
In colour reproduction , the process of separating the various original colours of an image by a colour filters in a camera or electronic scanner so that the colour separation film and then printing plates can be produced.
(1) The mechanical and hand process of separating artwork destined to be coloured into negative overlays or components for each of the printing colours; (2) The optical process of separating coloured artwork by means of colour filters into separate single-colour negatives for each of the subtractive primary colours.
Division of colour into basic elements eg CMYK or flat pantone by a process of scanning or page make-up from a computer. Separate printing plates are needed for each colour.
The process of converting a colour photograph or drawing into its four component spectral colours: cyan, yellow, magenta and black (CYMK), in order that the image can be printed on a printing press.
The division of an image into its component colours for printing.
The production of a separate printing plate for each ink colour that will be used to print an image. Four plates are used in process colour separation, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. An addition plate is used for each spot colour.
process by which a continuous tone colour image is separated into the four process colours for print production.
The process of preparing a separate drawing, engraving, or negative for each colour required in the production of a lithographed map or chart.
A separate drawing for each colour to be used in the print.
The division of a multi-coloured original or line copy into the basic (or primary) process colours of yellow, magenta, cyan and black. These should not be confused with the optical primaries: red, green and blue.
Process by which final art is prepared for colour printing; tones are broken down and printed in four colours: black, magenta, cyan and yellow.
The process of separating a colour image into four subtractive colours, CMYK, either by photographic or electronic processes, thus producing a set of four films or a computer file.
