Andromeda Releases Screening Tools Set

Filters include cutlines, screens and etches By Dave Nagel
Andromeda Software has released a new bundle of filters for Adobe Photoshop and compatible applications. The new set--Artistic Screening Tools--includes three previously published filters focusing on line effects. The bundle offers a $42 discount on the three filters.

Included in the set are the Screens, Cutline and EtchTone filters. The Screens filter converts grayscale images into a variety of line art styles, from 15 LPI to 400 LPI. It features mezzotints, sharp contrast mezzograms, mezzoblends, ellipses, lines, circles, waves and combinations of alll of these.


The Cutline filter provides a variety of woodcut effects, combining dot and line screens in four different combinations. It allows for directional screening and stamp screening and emulates 5 LPI to 35 LPI screens.

The EtchTone filter provides a continuous tone screen to emulate old-style printing that softens black and white line screens.

The Artistic Screening Tools set is available for Macintosh and Windows for $215. For more information, visit http://www.andromeda.com.
