Use Color Halftone in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can apply the color halftone filter to an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. To begin, open Photoshop. Create a new document, or open an existing one. I've shown you how to do that in other tutorials. I've got a document open, and that document has one layer.
Make sure that the correct working layer is selected
This is important if the document has more than one layer. Simply click the layer that should be edited. Layers are listed in the bottom half of the menu on the right-hand side of the program.
This is an option in the navigation bar that runs along the top of the program.
Click on "Color Halftone..."
This is a useful filter. A lot of people tend to use halftone when they're going to do screen printing. This is a cheat method to do a very quick halftone for screen printing.
Look at the options in the pop-up menu
We would generally leave them at the default settings. However, they are adjustable. Click in the fields and type to change them. We can change the "Max. Radius" and the various channels as well. In general, we suggest that you leave these alone.
Click "OK" to apply the filter
Alternatively, click "Cancel" to go back.
It has added a color halftone to our image. A black and white halftone is also possible, and probably better for screen printing.
Press "Ctrl" and "+" on the keyboard to zoom in
As we can see, we have the CMYK colors all overlapping as close to the image as possible.
I've just shown you how you can apply a color halftone to an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them to the section below and we'll do our best to get back to you.
