Task 12 How to Create a Halftone Pattern

The Halftone Pattern filter creates a graphic effect that simulates a halftone screen being applied to an image. This effect reduces the image to two colors and creates a stylized graphic feel that is distinctive and unique. The colors used for the filter are taken from the foreground and background colors, so be sure to select these colors before applying the filter, as explained in step 1. The Halftone Pattern controls are located in the Filter Gallery interface. For details on the Filter Gallery, refer to Task 10, “How to Use the Filter Gallery.”

1. Select Colors

Because the halftone effect uses the foreground and background colors, you must set these colors before applying the filter. Click the Foreground color swatch in the toolbox and select the desired color from the Color Picker. Click the Background color swatch and select the second color.
