Halftone dot thinning

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #7016082.

The invention provides techniques for thinning halftone dots in a halftone dot bit map. A bit map filter may be used to thin the dots. For example, a target glyph may passed over the bit map. If any subsets of bits within the bit map match the target glyph, the subsets of bits can be replaced with bits defined by a thinned glyph. In this manner, the ink of a halftone print can be reduced in a manner that enhances the visual appearance of the print.
