I had never chance to use it, but I wonder, if there is an easy way to make halftone from a picture/graphic, but not as bitmap? Or do I have to do it with "blend" manually?

There is a free program called raster.exe for creating a single color halftone from a bitmap. The converted vector halftone can be copy and paste to illustrator or coreldraw.

I once use it in this design...by exporting a shadow to a jpg, and convert it to vector halftone using raster.exe..

Nice effect morabira !
There is to many high resolution free brushes for Adobe Photoshop, but here with the program is really faster.

I tried raster.exe, seems that it is useful when it is about single color object. Tnx again

1. Use fountain fill or interactive fill tool to make color gradation. Select white for one color and black for the other;
2. Convert the object into grayscale bitmap;
3. With object still selecting, from bitmap menu, choose color transform >> halftone >> set as you wish;
4. Done!! (but there are more)
5. If you want to change halftone color, convert it again to bitmap. This time choose black n white.
6. By clicking a color, you can change the background. Right cliking you change the halftone.
Hope this is usefull :)
