1. A method for printing an image on a substrate in a plurality of adjacent swaths extending in a main scanning direction, said method comprising the step of:
determining a position of a boundary between adjacent swaths based on a content of an image to be printed,
wherein the step of determining the position of the boundary includes searching for a minimum in a relation between an optical density of the image to be printed and a position in a sub-scanning direction normal to the main scanning direction.
