    Image > Mode > Grayscale
    Image > Mode > Bitmap > Diffusion Dither + Choose ppi

    The result is printable only for very low ppi. Otherwise
    the Bitmap and the printer screening will interact and create
    Moiré patterns.

    It's perhaps Floyd-Steinberg Dithering, which is deterministic
    without a random (stochastic) component. The word 'stochastic'
    is often abused.

    Steve,

    sorry, don't know a plug-in.
    Once I had programmed this stuff:
    http://www.fho-emden.de/~hoffmann/hilb010101.pdf
    But I don't know how to make Photshop plug-ins.
    Please use for this doc in Acrobat 72dpi (not 96) and
    view by zoom=100% or occasionally zoom=200% (pixel-
    synchronized graphics).

    Henry R.Kang had written good books about 'halftoning'.

    Not sure if this plugin does what you want but try 'India Ink' at flamingpear.com.

    Floyd-Steinberg (Diffusion Dither) is useless for high resolution work.

    I have a plugin which produces a good quality stochastic for lithography or contact printing: http://telegraphics.com.au/sw/#rastus

    Demo downloadable there, or contact me if you want to evaluate it.

    My rather good RIP ColorGate ProductionServer
    offers Floyd-Steinberg as one of several options
    for halftoning.

    Again: books by Henry R.Kang about halftoning...
