Turns out I wrote it a bit wrong, Bill, was incomplete in the description. A RIP's traditional job is to translate vector to raster (not raster to vector), but now many use RIP processes to output raster to raster. Thanks to Richard Ball, who emailed me with the correction. This is real confusing, as normally I am concerned about using RIP's only when printing Postscript fonts on bitmap printers; and was thinking of getting smooth fonts from Photoshop rather than the basic processes. There's a little RIP in many drivers for output devices such as monitors, printers, film recorders maybe. Pam "B. Twieg" wrote: > > Pam, thanks for your RIP explanation.
