The invention offers a simple mechanism for communicating the artistic aims of the graphic designer from a design phase of a graphic arts workflow, to the automated processes of an output phase of a graphic arts workflow. This encoded information might then be used by any display or print rendering processes that deal with the images as they are incorporated into documents and printed. The encoded information might be associated with an image that has been previously rendered to a particular printing system, or might be associated with an image that has not yet been rendered for output. In either case the encoded design intent information can be used to configure the operational parameters of image and line art rendering processes.
