FLEXO Magazine : October 2011
Technologies & Techniques FLEXO’S FLUBS • Dot gain flattens out and reduces contrast in the photograph, compressing the tones and highlights. • Image manipulation worsens quantization, is coun- terproductive to improving the shot and will never compare to a photograph taken specifically for flexographic printing. • Edges where color drops below a minimum dot will appear “fake” or unnatural as the press gain produces a sharp and unnatural edge, ruining the intended effect. • Enlarging a photo excessively will soften the image and reduce contrast. 58 FLeXO october 2011 www.flexography.org Fall conference edition
