Stipple effect plug-in

Postby meaningmaker » Thu Dec 26, 2002 9:37 am

Can anyone recommend a Photoshop plug-in that will do a true stipple effect? I've seen recipes that add noise but a true stipple gives images that are even clearer than photos by accentuating edges. The Wall Street journal has been using stipple images instead of photos for years. It must be a really difficult filter to make becuase I haven't found something like theis on the web. Perhaps it is too pedestrian a function to take photo and turn it into a pen and ink stipple. I'm not looking to be creative, I just want to use some images on my site and don't want to run afowl of Reuters lawyers.

Thanks in advance for any help,

I guess there is no real good filter for turning photos into pen & ink pictures. There are a lot of different possibilities to do that. Some are quick and easy, but produce less impressive results. Other need a lot of work.

A simple plugin for creating such an effect is e.g. Pencil from VDL. See

Stipple effect

Andromeda used to have a filter “screens”. I don't know if it is compatible with Photoshop 7. It does a very nice job of creating pseudo Wall Street Journal effects. They also have a new etch or woodcut filter, check out their web site for demos.

flaming pear has a plugin called "india ink".

i've overexposed headshots and run them through to get a minimalist stippled effect.

it seems to require more preprocessing than i'd anticipated, but it works.

Stippled image

There is one way of doing this without using plugins. In Photoshop open your image. If you want a clean outside line you will have to create a path using the pen tool and then stroking it.

Now, go to image>image mode>bitmap. (You may have to change the mode to grayscale first)>diffusion dither.

Once in the bitmap box you have a variety of choices and the dpi has a bearing on the final result.

Hope this helps.
