Image design involves determining the object distribution which produces a prescribed image at the output of a given imaging system. We solve the problem of generating two parallel lines at the output of an imaging system that is modeled by a linear band-limited system foliowed by a point nonlinearity of the hardlimiting type. It is shown that a solution always exists whatever the system's bandwidth. In principle, infinite two-line resolution is achievable. In practice, resolution much higher than the conventional resolution of the imaging system is possible.
