Halftone is a plugin for Adobe Photoshop that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots. Halftone is a filter that can be applied to images or can be used to generate masks with.
This version of Halftone is a greatly improved and simplified version from the previous ones. It has had most previous features stripped out and only the most important ones have been kept. It has been re-coded from scratch with a completely different algorithm that now handles antialiasing without the use of supersampling so it is dramatically faster.
Halftone also now provides a feature where it can output a halftone pattern using a custom color for masks. The user can then use the mask for any number of applications as well.
Halftone is 100% multi-threaded capable of using an unlimited number of cores for ultimate speed.
Halftone supports both 8 bits / channel and 16 bits / channel color modes for professional workflows.
