Creating a CMYK Halftone Effect in Photoshop by GoaliGrlTilDeath Creating a CMYK Halftone Effect in Photoshop by GoaliGrlTilDeath
Look! A tutorial! :dummy:
I've been working on a MASSIVE Illustrator tutorial, but in the meantime I thought I'd make this tutorial. I've used this several times at work and always end up having to comb Google to remind myself how it works. So, to save myself and you time and energy, here's how!

If you're curious as the what the heck I'm talking about in that intro with CMYK and printing and whatchamacallit, here's a good explanation of what I couldn't explain: Marvin's Corner: Halftones and CMYK Printing, or, we could rely on good ole' Wikipedia.

If you guys have any ideas for other types of tutorials for Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign that you'd like to see, let me know. I'm well versed in all three and I enjoyed making this!

Edit: Um, wow! I didn't expect to get 42 favs in two hours! Since I can't thank you all personally, seriously, THANK YOU. I appreciate that you think this is helpful enough to save it for future use! And also seriously, suggest ideas for future tutorials!

Hi, I've tried this, and the result were great! Thanks for the tutorial!
But I have a question, each of my photos are in different sizes.
How do I make sure every dots is the same size in different photo size? :)

Are you trying to do a manipulation after applying the effect, or are you using multiple photos with this effect in a layout?

If it's the first, I'd suggest leaving this to the very end; do your manipulation, merge your photos and as the last step, make it half-tone.

If you're using the effect on multiple photos in a layout, you'll need to resize the photos to their final size and then use the effect. Unfortunately it's not an effect that scales well, as I'm sure you're discovering!

And thank you very much! I'm glad you've found this useful :aww:

Sure, that's fine! You can use this technique wherever you'd like. I certainly don't own it, I just explained it! :giggle:

Yup! Usually printers don't want you to actually SEE this pattern because seeing it means the print quality isn't good, but that doesn't mean you can't make use of it for artistic effect :giggle:
