New in version 4.4.
- Screentone Type
Select the global appearance (dots, lines).
Select the specific appearance of the pattern (for example: round dots, diamond dots, straight lines, sine wave lines).
Select how the pattern transitions from the foreground to the background.
In most cases but the dot pattern with round shape combination, the effect of the interpolation mode is not very noticeable.
Select how the pattern is arranged geometrically in the image (position, size, rotation, shear). Some patterns benefit from the capability of choosing horizontal and vertical sizes separately. For example, the sin wave lines pattern has a small period by default and by choosing a large horizontal size the period will look also larger.
- Background & Foreground
Allows you to choose the color and opacity of the foreground (dots, lines) and the background.
This flips what is treated as foreground and background.
- Brightness & Contrast
The brightness controls how close to the foreground or background color the pattern appears (how dark or light in the case of black foreground and white background). So if you want to simulate small dots, for example, set the brightness to a high value and to obtain big dots set it to a low value.
The contrast controls how smooth or sharp is the transition between the foreground and background colors. By default, the contrast is set to 50% (smooth). To achieve the typical sharp borders the contrast must be set to a higher value.
