Ink rollers. The control bars (such as Brunner, GATF, GRETAG, or RIT) must show areas consisting of minimum 1/8” x 1/8” solid color patches; tint patches of 25,50 and 75%; dot gain scale; slur targets and gray balance patches for process color (if applicable).

These areas must be repeated consecutively across the sheet. Initially, the dot gain settings in Photoshop's color settings were for Grayscale documents and you selected on based on the output (to screen or print). RGB documents that are converted to B&W for ink jet printing are still RGB documents, that's what should be sent to such devices.

So in that respect, the dot gain color settings are immaterial. – Control of plate making variables – Quality control aids: Plate sensitivity guide, GATF star target, UGRA plate control wedge and GATF dot gain scale.

From: Dan Margulis Date: Wed,PM RE: Dot gain, whose responsibility. Folks, Responses to my recent articles on dot gain indicate that there is still a lot of confusion among users (and printers, apparently) about what the Photoshop settings do. Looking for online definition of GATF or what GATF stands for.

GATF is listed in the World's largest and most authoritative dictionary database of. Printing to Gray Balance, written by Dan Remaley, Senior Technical Consultant in Process Controls for PIA/GATF.

He invites anyone who would like further information to contact him at (o), (c), or [email protected] Recently there has been a lot of discussion about “printing to gray balance.”.

The only way to know your correct densitys is to print GATF dot gain scale book a standard, like isothey have a specified lab colour value for each colour, so it can change quite a bit with different machines and inks, once you get that, then you calibrate the plates to get the correct dot gain, in the case of iso its the same for MYK and higher for black, have a read of this document.

Proofs must contain color control bars (such as Brunner, GATF, GRETAG, or RIT) for each color of ink on the sheet. Control bars must be placed parallel to the press’s ink rollers and must show areas consisting of minimum 1/8 x 1/8” solid color patches; tint patches of 25, 50 and 75%; dot gain scale; and gray balance patches for process.

After implementing the plate curves, monitored Dot Gains on Press. We needed to fine-tune the curve slightly. We did take gray balance a step further by controlling the 25% & 75%.

We curved the 25%, 50%, and the 75%. We now have gray balance through the entire tonal scale. We print on No.

1 & 2 Coated sheets and still use the SWOP guidelines. I am now entrenched in the G7 system. So I got that. But remembering 15 years ago I fingerprinted a print company to print linear, in other words my curves compensated for Dot gain so the finished print was 50%=50% etc.

(rightly or wrongly) We printed fantastic stuff with near color accuracy.

Dot gain is a ‘bell shaped’ curve starting at 1% increasing to the midtone (50%) then declining to 99%. The 50% dot has the most gain and is the most sensitive to change. This is why the scanning person asks what press is this going on. Is it coated or uncoated. control variable the press operator checks is dot gain, which by ISO is now called Tone Value Increase (TVI).

Dot Area or Tone Value is an absolute measure of how large the halftone dot is. When compared to a reference, the net difference is called dot gain or TVI.
