Image forming apparatus



PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an image forming apparatus which suppresses generation of color shift.SOLUTION: An image forming apparatus comprises: an image holder for holding a toner image; an image forming part for sequentially forming plural single color toner images on the image holder using toner of plural single colors different from each other, overlapping pixels corresponding to the plural single color toner images with each other to make a pixel over the plural single color toner images, and thereby causing the image holder to hold a plural color toner image formed by toner of the plural single colors thereon; a transfer part for transferring the plural color toner image held on the image holder to a sheet; and a fixing part for fixing the plural color toner image transferred on the sheet by the transfer part on the sheet. The image forming part forms on the image holder single color toner images whose single color toner arrangement areas are adjusted within a pixel over the plural single color toner images and corresponding to each of the plural single color toner images, which is divided into a plurality of areas, so that different single color toner is arranged in an area different from each other within the pixel.
【課題】色ズレの発生を抑制する画像形成装置を提供する。 【解決手段】トナー像を保持する像保持体と、像保持体上に、互いに異なる色の複数の単色トナーそれぞれを用いた複数の単色トナー像を、該複数の単色トナー像相互に跨る互いに対応する画素どうしが互いに重なるように順次に形成することにより、該像保持体上に複数色の単色トナーによる複数色トナー像を保持させる像形成部と、像保持体上に保持された複数色トナー像を用紙上に転写する転写部と、転写部により用紙上に転写された複数色トナー像を該用紙上に定着する定着部とを備え、像形成部は、像保持体上に、複数の単色トナー像相互に跨る互いに対応する画素内を複数の領域に分けたときの互いに異なる領域に互いに異なる色の単色トナーが配置されるように画素内の単色トナーの配置領域が調整された単色トナー像を形成するものである。 【選択図】図3
