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. 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. Eliminate dot "popping" using the built-in smoothing. And if you really want to do something new, use opacity/transparency to overlay dot shapes. Create your own custom shape in any graphics application and use them. Halftone comes packed with over 30 pre-defined practical, high-resolution shape images for you to use freely. Halftone has an clear user interface where all features are easily found. Every control is standard so you'll be able to use everything from the start. 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! Dots in a halftone pattern are aligned to a grid but with Halftone, that grid is as far from static. Position, scale and rotate the grid as you need, you can even rotate the shapes independent of the grid. 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. 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!
