GA 132 - Electronic Imaging III

Credit Hours: 2.5

Students will work on preparing digital files for single-and two-color text and graphics jobs for output to computer-to-plate equipment. Topics include the basic concepts of trapping, spot color issues, duotone images, and preflighting of spot color files. The pagination, and proofing of a multiple page signature in spot color as well as its potential output to computer-to-plate equipment will be the course objective. 

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • prepare a two-color page layout document correctly for output to a postscript level output device;
  • prepare and output digital halftone images;
  • understand and perform basic electronic trapping techniques for simple multicolor page layouts;
  • prepare and output electronic documents utilizing correct screen ruling, resolution and screen angles for a postscript level output device;
  • prepare and output digital grayscale images as duotones;
  • preflight spot color files for postscript output; and
  • demonstrate the learned techniques and their accuracy utilizing proofs and computer to plate output.
