    Meaningless, certainly. It's another case of the Adobe engineers creating an illusion, just as they did when they alleged vector drawing in Photoshop by adding the shape layers feature.

    I've never understood why Illustrator has the option of measuring things in pixels. A pixel is just the smallest element of an image in a resolution-dependent environment. Since resolution plays no part...

    Basic rule for signs is a font with a big x-height so lowercase letters are almost as tall as capitals - this aids readability from a distance. Also better keep to sans font and open the tracking sl...

  • Halftone pattern...

    I know a couple methods for creating this look...One is using the photoshop filter. But for some reason it fills the whole artboard with dots, even places with no color, so that will not work. And there is the Bitmap method, which looks cool, but is not "clean" because the circles aren't antialiased...I'm looking for a way to create this look with "clean" circles. Any ideas?

      Thanks, that might work. Looks like I'll have to combine all the pages myself in photoshop or something? And its too bad the standalone version is PC only.

        We all love the rasterbator, takes a little time to get to know, but then you will come to love it..... You can choose under your preferences of the job to do it all on one sheet....

        About the program only on P.C.... too bad for you mac users, you can't rasterbate without help.

          To be honest, I'd much rather Rasterbate with help

            Well, it takes some getting used to. If you have access to a PC the standalone version gives you a little more control and you can create larger, singular rasterbated images (you don't have to combine them into one)

            Otherwise, yes you may have to try and combine them together depending on your dot size, etc.

                Copy the highest-contrast channel and run Color Halftone ( the image will dictate the appropriate settings) on that copy only. Select/Inverse the result and fill that selection on a new layer.

                  I struggle with this too. Often I need to get a halftone dot pattern at like 45dpi And I can never get the filter settings right, any advice.
                  I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

                    i usually use the bitmap technique and then trace the pattern in illy.

                    Make a gradient. Black to white. change your image mode to grayscale, then to bitmap. when you hit bitmap, in the mthod drop down, select Halftone Pattern. click ok. select your frequency. you'll have to play with this a bit to get it just right. VIOLA! Halftone dots!

                      Select what it is you want to have the pattern. Run a path around it or whatever you need to do to get it selected by itself and then run the filter. It's doing the whole image because you don't have a specific area you're telling it to halftone.
