Enhancement of glossmark images at low and high densities with selective application of clear toner

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #7813006.

The present invention relates to expanding the range of image densities over which the manipulation of differential gloss as may be inherent in halftoned images may be achieved. By selectively applying halftones with anisotropic structure characteristics which are significantly different in orientation while remaining identical in density, a gloss image may be superimposed within an image without the need for special toners or paper. This technique may be enhanced across low and high density areas by application of clear toner to expand the range of image densities over which a desired glossmark image will bear an effect.
