Create the perfect Halftone™ effect.
The largest feature-set of any halftone dithering effect in the market
ensures you can do things never seen before.
Make creative design and artistic works with the Halftone plug-in or process
images for the printing press quickly and painlessly. Halftone uses complex
mathematical formulas and specifically designed and optimized algorithms to
provide the best possible quality for any image.
Fine-grained, flexible placement
Position, scale and
rotate the grid as you need, you can even rotate the shapes independent
of the grid. Create a more "natural" look by randomizing rotation of and
position of the dots. Halftone gives you three different types of grid
to play with, where dots are aligned on the corners of either squares,
triangles (demonstrated here) or hexagons.
Use any picture, photograph or custom hand-drawn image to set the
relative sizes of the dots and use the built-in brightness, contrast and
smoothing option to tweak it to perfection. Something other plug-ins
force you to do again and again outside the plug-in can be done in one
go with Halftone.
Besides using your own picture, Halftone also comes with a number of
built-in "source" modes; solid mode to make every dot the same size,
gradient and a spotlight effect.
Dots of all sizes and colors
Create dots exactly as you want. Change the size, color and rotation
of the dots to make the basic effect. Apply random factors to give a
more natural feeling. Change the relative size of the dots by changing
the contrast and brightness. And if you really want to do something new, use
opacity/transparency to overlay dot shapes. Halftone even supplies an
option to automatically resize dots to compensate for the opacity.
Use any shape you can imagine
Halftone includes three
high-quality, mathematically modeled shapes; round dots, squares and
stars, with any number of points. These built-in shapes are perfectly
anti-aliased at any size and angle, for any image type.
But you're not limited to the built-in shapes. Create your own custom shape in any graphics application and use them.
You can use any image you want, even photo's and with or without transparency. Halftone comes packed
with over over 70 pre-defined practical, high-resolution shape images for you
to use freely. Halftone support numerous file formats such as Windows™
bitmaps, icons and cursors, JPEG, PNG, GIF, Photoshop™ PSD and many more.
Just like the built-in shapes, custom shapes can be any size or angle
and can even be mirrored in a number of different patterns.
Make some waves
Dots in a halftone pattern are aligned to a grid but with Halftone,
that grid is as far from static. Waves add a new dimension to halftone patterns, making possible stunning effects by turning the grid aligned shapes into waved
and curved patterns. Move dots along waves, twist them around in spirals and make a
splash with circular waves. Using waves you can make effects never seen
Easy to use interface
Halftone has an clear user interface where all features are easily
found. Since we keep everything as simple as possible, you'll be able to
use every control from the start. Immediate preview lets you see the
results even while you are changing controls. Use the entire screen to
preview an image and zoom in or out for a better view, the preview is
reliable no matter what you choose.
Absolute top quality
Halftone uses mathematical
models for it's built-in shapes and special interpolation algorithms for
custom bitmap shapes. If you work with 16-bit images, you'll be glad to
hear anti-aliasing is 16-bit too! The quality shows when comparing to
other halftone pattern software. Halftone draws smooth edges for all
shapes - even the ones you designed yourself! - and all image modes and if you don't want the anti-aliasing, you
can turn it off while still having the benefit of all high precision
Improve your workflow
Save, load and share all settings at any time; great for
large-scale projects or repeat work. Effects scale with image size, so
you can design your halftone pattern on a small image, then apply it to
a large image, and it will appear exactly the same. Halftone provides
you with all the tools you need in a single window, so you'll be able to
create the effect you need in one go.
