Abstract: Current methodologies for color image halftoning produce prominent halftoning noise. In this paper we argue that brightness variation between color dots placed at neighboring locations is a major cause of color halftone noise. To correct this flaw we propose Ink Relocation, a postprocess to arbitrary color halftoning algorithms. The proposed postprocess relocates ink drops between neighboring drop locations in order to reduce local brightness variation.
