Paper presented at SPIE Electronic Imaging Conference, Santa Clara, USA. This is one of a portfolio of outcomes from an AHRC funded research project ('A Practical Reappraisal of Continuous Tone Photo-relief Printing', award of £157,000). Drawing on various research projects conducted with Thirkell, the paper elaborated upon the potential of continuous tone methodologies to an international electronic imaging and digital print community. Samples were shown of digitally generated three dimensional continuous tone photographic ceramic tiles. The theoretical aspects of mapping a tone curve as opposed to a half-tone structure were discussed. A further aspect of this research, focusing on preservation and conservation for digital printing, was presented to the Institute of Physics Congress 2003, Edinburgh, Scotland.
