Glossary of Printing Terms:
Unsharp Masking

A color separation and manipulation technique that is used to increase the overall contrast at the edges of density or color changes.

This can be done either electronically or photographically.

The location where the color changes occur is found and the tones and colors are adjusted to create a more definite change. Whether done electronically or photographically, unsharp masking increases the overall detail of an image.
