Negative film created from a full color image for use in Process printing.
The process of converting an image to CMYK. Each PIXEL in the image is analyzed for color and reduced to the four primary colors Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. Separation is a complex process that can be done in one of many ways, depending on the type of printing press that will be used to print the final piece and the type of paper it will be printed on. (Analyzing an image and reducing it to other COLOR MODELS, such as Hexachrome, is sometimes called "separation" as well.) A DRUM SCANNER performs color separation as it scans the image.
Conversion of images to CMYK (for printing). Also used to refer to the physical negatives created for each of the CMYK colours.
Positive] to be Holy - separate from the world, the flesh and the devil; [Negative] the quality, state or condition of being excluded from God's family because of sin.
Films representing the levels of cyan, magenta, yellow and black colours contained in original colour artwork.
One of the four images (CMYK) created when scanning a colour image for four colour process reproduction.
All printing methods require separations to reproduce color photos, slides or transparencies. Printers use varying intensities of red, blue, yellow and black inks to reproduce almost all of the colors we can see. The original image is separated on a color scanner that breaks up the image, in minute increments, into the correct intensities of each of the four base colors (also called the CMYK system). When printed in the four colors, these separations will closely match the colors in the original image.
Also colour separation. Separate film or stats for each colour, which is to be printed. Registration marks are used to indicate the proper position and alignment for each colour.
A full color image broken down into four process ink colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). The original image is printed by combining these colors in the proper places and densities on paper.
The separating of a full-color image into the primary printing colors in positive or negative form. By overlaying the separations in the printing process, using the correct primary color for each, the result is a full color reproduction of the original. Contributed by: MarcommWise Staff
The act or process of separating (to become isolated).
In color photography, the isolation or division of the colors of an original into their primary hues, each record or negative used for the production of a color plate. The act of manually separating colors in printing plates. In lithography, direct separations are made with the use of the halftone screen; indirect separations involve continuous-tone separation negatives and screened positives made from these.
The process printers use to break down a color image into its components of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black for the purposes of printing. An image that has been processed this way is also known as a separation. The separation consists of four halftones that represent the four inks used on press to recreate the image.
The decomposition of the color data of an image into separate colors (in accordance with the CMYK color model) for the individual passes of the four-color printing procedure; also denotes means the conversion of RGB colors in to CMYK colors.
A separator is fitted between the positive and negative electrodes in order to isolate the latter from each other electrically.
An alteration in which the pure is separated from the impure or base. See also: purification*, decomposition*. Alchemical: Sometimes referred to as albation, albification or "whitening," in which the black color occasioned by putrefaction* (often called Death, or the Impurity of Death)is replaced by the color white, being of itself a symbol of the purity succeding the black of putrefaction.
The technique used when printing colour documents - it refers to dividing colour documents into the four-process colours cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, which can be used to recreate every colour within the CMYK gamut.
A film negative or positive to be used for each printing plate.
Alternate term for color separation.
