Can't Watch the Video? Here's what you missed

  1. Open the Brush Panel. Find the brush that you want to resize. Double click the brush.
  2. Toggle to the Texture setting from the menu. Set your scale by using the scale slider or typing in your percentage. A smaller percentage will create a larger halftone. A larger percentage will create a smaller halftone.

💡IMPORTANT: You must repeat these steps for all the brushes you are using. Not using the same scale will create unwanted patterns.


DupliTone halftone brushes make it easy to add authentic halftones and shading that look like they came straight off a 1950s printing press.
