Halftone Screen

Halftone is a printing method in which the relative darkness, density, and size of tiny dots are varied to show changes in color and brightness. The amount of detail shown by a halftone depends upon the number of dots per inch, and the more dots per inch, the more detail in the print. A halftone is sometimes called a screen.

To select a halftone screen:

  1. Depending on your print driver, do one of the following:
    • Select the Image Options tab.
    • On the Image Options tab, select the Enhancements subtab.
  2. For Halftone Screen, select an option. The more dots you select, the more detail in the print job.
  3. Click OK.
