Trying to Find Dot Pattern Software

dithering

#1

I can’t find the posts with software tools that converted images into “sophisticated” dot patterns. I’m not talking about just dithering. The article had sample of Bill Murray’s face. I looked in Tips & Tricks and in my bookmarks and can’t find it. :pensive: Thanks

rasterbator?

May depend on the software used for the design. Examine your help files for Stippling.

In Corel you have the Pen And Ink stippling.
Found at Bitmap//Art Strokes//Pen&Ink with sliders to control size, density, etc.

I have played around with this function and like almost all of the various manipulation tools, what you start with will determine results and how far you can go with it.

i really like stipplegen. it takes some time to let it render, but i have gotten some good results.

Those are the ones…Rasterbator and Stipplegen. Thanks @Dia @shop and all!!

This post is the one that I was referencing. I think that it might be worth having linked from the Tips section @Jules if it isn’t already.

Not a bad idea - it might be in there already in the Tips matrix, but who can know where everything is now? My memory is good but it’s getting a bit overloaded these days. :smile:

You mean you aren’t just hardwired and the matrix isn’t just us picking your brain?

I’ve used these a few times. There are multiple options other than just dots.
