Abstract
Personal computer systems with an attached color display and color printer are now readily available. Users are learning that transforming data generated for the monitor to a form suitable for the printer is not simple. Manufacturers of traditional graphic arts prepress systems have learned how to make this transformation but are not disposed to reveal the art. As a result, it is necessary for users to develop their own translation software. Most of the users are new to the art and are not skilled in color reproduction. They are dissatisfied with the results they get when they use simple transformations, and they are willing to accept less than full graphic arts quality in exchange for a significant improvement in quality and simplicity. It is for this group that the following method of finding a suitable transformation for a specific monitor/printer pair was designed.
