English term or phrase:centred trapping
Es geht mir um die Abgrenzung der Begriffe "trapping", "centred trapping", "choke" und "spread".
The main ink-trapping options that are used to prevent small gaps appearing between different blocks of colour are spread, choke and centred trapping. Most ink traps use spreading whereby the lighter object is made larger to spread into another darker one. Choke can also be used to reduce the size of the aperture that an object will print in, and centred trapping uses a combination of enlarging the object and reducing the aperture by the same amount.
