Vector Halftone

Quickly create a perfectly scalable halftone effect based on any underlying artwork. Be as creative as you want – each halftone “dot” can be circular, square, a line, text characters or any symbol present in the artwork. A range of pre-sets give every possible control needed for posters through to T-shirt design and security printing.

Available color controls available as live Effects and Filters

Tool Function: Effects and Filters

The core tools are live (non-destructive) with effects and permanent filters allowing you to adjust color in Illustrator for vectors, text and embedded images.

Filters allow easy automation, including batch processing, through standard Illustrator actions to instantly replicate color adjustments.
