1. During plate making, the export value of originals will break us $26billion. What is the color separation principle of cyan (c), magenta (m), yellow (y) and black (k)

answer: there are thousands of colors on the picture of color paintings or color photos. It is almost impossible to print these thousands of colors in one color. The printing method is four-color printing. That is, first decompose the original into cyan (c), magenta (m), yellow (y) and black (k) four-color plates, and then synthesize the colors during printing. The so-called "color separation" is based on the principle of subtraction, using red, green and blue color filters to selectively absorb the color light of the same wavelength made by the glass plate tensile testing machine, and decompose the original into three primary colors: yellow, magenta and green. In the process of color separation, the color light absorbed by the color filter is the complementary color light of the color filter itself, so that on the photosensitive film, a negative film of black-and-white image is formed, and then added to form a point negative film, and finally copied and dried into various color printing plates. This is the earliest principle of photographic color separation

due to the development of printing technology, now we can use prepress scanning equipment to separate, sample and convert the original color into digital information, that is, using the same method as photographic plate making, we can decompose the original color into red (R), green (g) and blue (b), and digitize it, and then use the computer to decompose the digital information into green (c), magenta (m), yellow (y) and black (k) through mathematical calculation

2. Why should prepress images be added

answer: because the printing process determines that printing can only use dots to reproduce the continuous gradation of the original. If you zoom in, you will find that it is composed of countless dots of different sizes. We can see that although the point sizes are different, they all occupy the same space position. This is because once the original image is added, the image is divided into countless regularly arranged points, that is, the continuous tone image information is changed into discrete point image information. The larger the point, the darker the color and the darker the layer; The smaller the point is, the lighter the color is, and the brighter the level is. The size of the fixed space occupied by each point is determined by the number of lines added. For example, if the number of points added is 150lpi, there are 150 points in the length or width of an inch. Point space position and point size are two different concepts. For example, C50% means that the point size accounts for 50% of the point space position, and 100% means that the point size all covers the point space position, that is, the so-called "field" in printing. 0% because there is no point, there is only the point space position, so there is no ink printed on this place. Obviously, the larger the number of hanging eyes, the smaller the space occupied by the point, and the more layers that can be described, the more delicate. In fact, the level and color of the manuscript are reproduced through this method of gradually starting to create a hanging

3. What is printing color

answer: printing color is the color composed of different percentages of C, m, y and K, so it is more reasonable to call it mixed color. C. M, y and K are the four primary colors commonly used in printing. When printing primary colors, these four colors have their own color plates, and the points of this color are recorded on the color plate. These points are generated by the halftone screen, and the defined primary colors are formed by combining the four color plates. Adjust the size and spacing of points on the color plate to form other primary colors. In fact, the four printing colors on the paper are separated, but they are very close. Because our eyes have certain restrictions on the ability to distinguish, we can't distinguish them. The visual impression we get is the mixing effect of various colors, resulting in various primary colors

y, m, C can synthesize almost all colors, but black is also needed, because the black produced by Y, m, C is impure, and a purer black is needed during printing, and if y, m, C are used to produce black, there will be too many local inks

4. What are the devices of the color desktop publishing system? What are the software

for example, the wiring terminals in the computer chassis, wall switches, etc.

answer: the color desktop publishing system is composed of three parts: graphic input part, graphic processing part and graphic output part. The specific composition of each part is as follows:

(1) the equipment of image and text input part: scanner, digital camera, computer. Software: device driver software, and MAC and PC operating systems

(2) graphics and text processing equipment: computer. Software: 1. Computer software: image processing software is Photoshop and painter. 2. Graphics software: freehand, CorelDRAW. 3. The typesetting software is PageMaker and QuarkXPress. 3D Image Maker Software: 3DS, infihi-d, strate studiopro

(3) image and text output equipment: computer, color printer, laser printer, laser Imagesetter, direct plate making machine, plate punching machine, etc., direct digital printer. Software: Rip, driver software, word library

5. Why does the computer design system need to use large capacity memory? What are the commonly used mass storage

answer: many photos or computer-made images are used in the design. Because of the need of printing output, the resolution of the image is usually high, about 300dpi. Therefore, images occupy a lot of disk space. For example, for a 4K patchwork file, generally all stored files should be more than 100m. The 3.5-inch floppy disk usually used cannot meet the requirements of storing images, so large capacity memory is used. Common mass storage devices include: ① optical disk (MO) drives, with disks of 230m and 460m or larger. ② Active hard disk. ③ Zip (100m) drive. ④ Rewritable disc

6. What are the workflow of prepress design or computer design

answer: the general workflow has the following basic processes:

① clarify the design and printing requirements, and accept customer data ② design: including input text, image, creativity, and typography ③ issue black-and-white or color proofing, and let the customer modify ④ modify according to the proofing ⑤ issue proofing again, and let the customer modify until the final draft ⑥ let the customer sign and issue film ⑦ prepress proofing ⑧ send it to the printing proofing, so that the customer can see if there is a problem, If there is no problem, ask the customer to sign. All the pre press design work is completed. If there is a problem in proofing, you have to modify it and re output the film

7. What is the workflow of the computer design system to complete the design

answer: the workflow in the design system is as follows: ①
