Glossary of Printing Terms:
Low Resolution Stepping


A step and repeat workflow file format for editing programs which provides a more efficient process for automating the duplication of a single image two or more times on press plates. During the RIPing process, a high-resolution single element (cut marks, fold marks, images, etc) is used to automatically create a low-resolution file to be used for the step and repeat functions in the editing program, conserving file space and increasing processing speeds. When the file is exported to a PostScript digital front end (DFE) system, a conversion occurs on the fly with the low-resolution elements being replaced by links to the RIPed, high-resolution file and file elements.
