HALFTONE004 is a texture of repeating halftone dots following along a 45 degree diagonal.  This screentone pattern performs very well as a reproduction technique to simulate an old newspaper or comic book look.  Although a much heavier version of HALFTONE003, the pattern successfully mimics the form of the source image. Once Stipplr generates the halftone pattern, a series of layer effects are applied which cause the dot pattern to react to the contrasty portions of the source image layer in Photoshop. In very dark areas the pattern often becomes inverted, ie, white dots on black while in very light areas the dots become very small or disappear completely.  Results are stored as a vector shape layer within a newly created Smart Object placed above the source image layer, all vector data remains editable. Our tutorial section has many tips on how to get the most out of the Stipplr Actions as well as additional resources for recreating some of the most popular forms of graphic art.
