This thesis analyzes the effectiveness of the Kodak Color Print View ing Filters. The first half discusses the problems people in the graphic arts encounter when working with color reproductions and points out the in adequacies of the proofing system currently in use. The second half focuses on the application of the viewing filters and their ability to improve the proofing system. This involves an experiment where twenty print buyers and twenty printers are tested on three test images. Half of the partici pants use the viewing filters, the other half do not. The results of the experiment indicate that viewing filters benefit buyers more than printers and are most helpful on images that have important memory colors.
