A study has been completed which quantifies the amount of misregistration allowable on a continuous tone multi-color image. By the use of color separation filters and a misregistration device, the actual threshold limits of registration have been derived for each individual color. The correlation between the subjective, visual impression, and the actual numerical quantity have been examined. As a result the specific threshold limits have been determined and can be used for any continuous tone imaging application.
