Halftone options affect the resolution and clarity of your color output. You can select halftone settings independently for text, graphics, and photographs. The two halftone options are Smooth and Detail.
||The Smooth option provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas. It also enhances photographs by smoothing out fine color gradations. Select this option when uniform and smooth area fills are the top priority.
||The Detail option is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions among lines or colors, or for images that contain a pattern or a high level of detail. Select this option when sharp edges and details are the top priority.
Some software programs convert text or graphics to raster images. In these cases, the Photographs settings also control text and graphics.
