Chapter 24. Printing Your Illustrations > Printing Composite Pages

Printing Composite Pages

A composite is a single-page representation of an illustration. A black-and-white composite, printed from a standard laser printer or professional imagesetter (which I'll describe in a few pages), translates all colors of an illustration to gray values. A color composite, printed from a color printer or film recorder, prints the illustration in full color. Composites are useful when you want to reproduce the illustration in black and white, proof an illustration, or fire off a few color photocopies. But you can't use composites for professional-quality full-color reproduction. For that, you need to print separations, which I'll discuss later in the section “Printing Color Separations.”

Printing a composite illustration is a five-step process (Windows users can skip to Step 2).
