Paper Abstract

The most widespread practice for including drawings, diagrams, and other artwork in technical documents and reports is to cut and paste. This involves reduction or magnification, cropping, and then affixing the artwork in a space left blank in the report for the picture. To save labor, minimize handling and, above all, to improve the management of the document production by keeping track of the artwork, it would be advantageous to digitize a piece of graphics, merge the graphics with the text electronically, and print out the combination as one integral product. Systems that can perform these functions are either expensive or slow, or both. The purpose of this work was to investigate ways in which art-work could be digitized, merged with text, and printed at modest cost, satisfactory speed and with a quality that is consistent with the requirements for technical publication.
