Touch Controls

Slide right and left to change the size of the Halftone 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 make 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. Drag left again to reduce. At 0% no Halftone is applied. The more the Adjust Halftone slider moves to the right, the bigger the Halftone 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 artwork's color in the background. This replicates a similar effect to magazine printing.
  • Screen Print creates a color halftone that shows white through the halftone’s background. This replicates a similar effect to screen printing.
  • Newspaper creates a greyscale halftone. This replicates a similar effect to newspaper printing.
