Linerize or not to Linerize plates... that is the question

    In my view, which is that the optimum method of dealing with the imaging of a plate for reproducing an image on press would not deal with dot gain compensation. Mapping the print output relative to the screen values input would encompass all the information of dot gain. In that condition, I would say that a linear plate is the ideal. Linearity would then be a process control metric for plate imaging.

    But since we don't have such a method, it seems it does not matter as long as the condition of the plate can be repeatable.

    Just my 2 cents.

They might be too far away from the business of the company to see the loss in profits, efficiency, and effectiveness of their “solution”. Or they’re just ignorant.
      It is not a good reason to recommend it to others as a production proess they should adopt. It is not normal or best practices.
      Yeah well that is a whole other can of worms.

        ROTFL ! You should know that you’re not the only one dealing with cans of worms.

          Well aware.

          Also I was not recommending the way it is done here to anyone.
