i have PS, AI and ID and am hoping someone can direct me to a good place that i can get help on generating a vector based half tone generator from an image. the idea is that i will mill this out of solid material. ideally i would like to control the size, type (circles, ellipses, squares or whatever) and arrangement of the results.
someone gave me a download of software called "dxf halftone21" but i am not getting this to work.
does anyone know if this is something for Photoshop or Illustrator?
i have only done some vector work in illustrator...which i would recommend in purchasing if this is something you would be using often.
via illustrator: http://vectips.com/tutorials/creating-halftone-effects/
There are vector halftone brushes in photoshop, and actions (http://www.actions4photoshop.com/atn/special-effects-and-textures/halftone-photoshop-actio n.aspx).
awesome. thank you janelle.
looks like time to start reading my book on illustrator.
much appreciate it!
