This refers to the process of setting a device to known colour conditions. Calibration must be performed externally for devices whose colour characteristics change frequently, e.g. monitors because phosphors lose brightness over time, and on printers because proofers and other digital printing devices can change output when colorant or paper stock is changed. Calibration is not required for most input devices (e.g., scanners and cameras) since these devices are generally self-calibrating .


Stands for cyan, magenta, yellow and black, which are the four so-called process colours that are used in four-colour, printing. They represent the subtractive colour model, where a combination of 100% of each component yields black and 0% of each yield white. Cyan, magenta, and yellow are the subtractive complements of red, green, and blue respectively.


This is the process of creating an ICC profile that describes the unique colour characteristics of a device used to process your stock image, such as a monitor, scanner, colour printer, and printing press.

Comping Image

A low-resolution stock photo used for non-final layouts.

Comp Usage

'Comp Usage' is defined as the creation of a temporary test use, rough layout or comprehensive rendering of a proposed work for client review, internal company review or testing. The Image may not be used in any materials distributed or accessible to the public or in any final product or use, including, without limitation, any online or other electronic distribution system (except you may transmit comps digitally or electronically for their review) and may not be sold or sublicensed alone or as part of any product.

This occurs in an RGB monitor, where red, green and blue signals all "converge" in one pixel. At full brightness, the RGB pixel in convergence would be white.

Digital Proof

This is a proofing system that does not include the use of film. Data is sent to a printer and imaged directly onto a paper-based material. There are several limitations of digital proofs: 1) They do not use the film that will be used to produce plates, and thus are open to interpretation of the output device, 2) Few of these devices print in the same dot pattern as is utilized in the printing process, and 3) The ink utilized in these printers is not representative of the inks used in the printing process and can show a vast colour range and density not attainable on a printing press. Digital proofs are usually used where money or time is too much of an issue to run a wet proof.


Height and width of a stock image is measured in centimetres or inches.


A stock image is looked at through a screen that converts the image into dots of various sizes. When printed, the dots merge to give an illusion of continuous tone to the naked eye.


This means every colour combination that is possible to produce with a given set of colourants on a given device or system.


This is the process of laying out pages in a press form so that they will be in the correct order after the printed sheet is folded.


The process of increasing the resolution of a stock image .


Stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group and is the most common compressed standard for high-resolution stock photos.


This is a short form of low resolution. If you use a lo-res stock image it will result in low quality reproduction because of a small number of dots or lines per inch.


This stands for lines per inch and is a measure of resolution for halftones.
