Title: Method of increasing imaging resolution

Abstract: Imaging resolution can be increased by separating image data into a plurality of overlapping subsets and imaging each subset independently on an imaging material responsive only to the instantaneous intensity of the light an not to the accumulated exposure. The method is particularly suitable for thermal recording as thermal materials respond to the instantaneous temperature. The preferred separation is when an image subset contains only image features of a single size.
