Touch Controls

Slide right and left to change the size of the Halftone that is applied across the image.

At the top of the screen is the Adjust Halftone bar. This bar displays the Halftone screen size as a percentage that is applied across an image. A Halftone screen is the size and positioning of the dots that go into making up a Halftone.

Initially, this is set at 0% Halftone. Drag your finger right to increase the size of the Halftone applied across the image, and drag it left again to reduce. At zero percent no Halftone is applied. The more the Adjust Halftone slider moves to the right, the bigger the Halftone dots and pattern, also known as a screen, will become.

Interface

Choose between your Halftone appearing as Full Color, Screen Print or Newspaper.

There are three different ways to adjust the appearance of your Halftone:

  • Full Colour creates a color Halftone that keeps the original artworks color in the background. This replicates a color printing effect similar to color magazines.
  • Screen Print creates a color Halftone that shows white through the halftone’s background. This replicates a color printing effect similar to screen printing on paper.
  • Newspaper creates a greyscale Halftone. This replicates a black and white printing effect similar to newspapers.
