The processes of copyediting, markup, proofreading, typesetting of text, photography of artwork, retouching, screening (of continuous-tone images such as photographs), trapping (also referred to as spreading and choking), page layout, page assembly ("stripping"), imposition (combining of many pages into a single signature form), and photomechanics (exposure and processing of a photomechanical printing plate) are all considered part of prepress, and are largely common to traditional and digital prepress. Some prepress processes specific to digital workflows include preflighting (verifying that all files needed are present and valid), color management, and RIPping.
