Full-color printing

From LISWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A method of reproducing an infinite range of colors in print by controlling the overprinting of three colors of ink (yellow, magenta, and cyan), with black often added. The term color separation refers to the process by which a full-color original is photographed through colored filters or scanned by a color sensing machine which separates the colors to produce negatives which define the area to be printed with each color of ink.
