ok so ive been playing with halftone settings in Illy, but dont fully understand it. so for whatever process color i have in a file, it prints in halftones. knowing that ive been printing out versions of whatever image in the different process options in the print dialog box. so first ill try it in black. if the results arent good then ill try a magenta version and so on until i get one that will work.
then when i find one that looks good, i try to adjust the settings of that color to see if i can even further improve the halftones. i have the degrees set at 22.5, the shape at ellipse, and the only adjusting going on is the LPI. however, when adjusting the LPI i dont seem to be getting different results. the halftones come out looking identical no matter what LPI i choose... is this right? i was under the impression that increasing or decreasing the LPI would adjust the size of dot in my halftones, but that doesnt seem to be the case...
what am i missing? is there an easier way to work with halftones in Illy? or is it all done in the print dialog box? if so why isnt the LPI adjustment changing the halftone dot size?
any help is appreciated!Linkback: http://boards.screenprintersopen.com/index.php?topic=7709.0
