Abstract

Disclosed is an automatic system to design loose gray templates for line width tagging using a tree-structured classifier. It is necessary to tag appropriate pixels to receive more or less ink to control line width growth in a rendering system. Determination of sufficient templates by inspection is tedious and time-consuming. It is also difficult to design the templates simultaneously for multiple color separations and different rendering algorithms. Scanned lines with accompanying noise further complicate the design process. Consequently, the templates may not fully represent the variety of images encountered in a production system and yield tagging errors.
