Halftoning is the method by which the printer mixes the four primary colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) in varying proportions to create millions of colors. Halftone options affect the resolution and clarity of your color output. The two halftone options are Smooth and Detail.
||The Smooth option provides better results for large, solid-filled print areas. It also enhances photos by smoothing out fine color gradations. Choose this option when uniform and smooth area fills are the most important attributes.
||The Detail option is useful for text and graphics that require sharp distinctions among lines or colors, or images that contain a pattern or a high level of detail. Choose this option when sharp edges and details are the most important attributes.
