How to Get Perfect Halftones in Procreate

We've noticed a little quirk in Procreate that can throw off the authentic look of halftones when you're working in Procreate.

Here's a little known trick for you to make perfect halftones in Procreate using ColorLab and DupliTone.

When you adjust halftone size in Procreate do not adjust the size of halftones with the Grain > Size slider. They will not overlap correctly and the authentic halftone effect will be lost.

Instead, write in or type your percentage when adjusting halftone size so they align properly.

Watch the short video below to see a demonstration.

Why do you need to write or type the percentage in when adjusting halftones?

Because when you use the slider Procreate is showing you whole numbers for the size when, in reality, they are actually displaying fractions of whole numbers in your artwork. The result is slightly different halftone sizes.
