The IRIS 3024 and 3047 ink jet printers are capable of placing from 0 to 31 18 µm diameter drops of each color ink in each pixel. A graph showing the number of drops per pixel of a specific color ink versus the optical density of the printed area is not linear. We attempt to explain the shape of this tone reproduction curve (TRC) and linearize it by approximation. The linear TRC helps reduce false contours and facilitates adjustment of image contrast and average density.
