how to make screentones using photoshop elements 7

This is for Photoshop Elements 7.0

Writing is huuuuge because I didn’t know what it would be like when it got downsized

Mostly random tips and very short in description. Quite possibly not helpful… hope not. But if you have questions or want a better explanation please ask in a comment. If you need a picture to go with it I will grab a screenshot no worries!!

If you have scanned in your lineart please go to the gimp video link below and separate your line art to make it easier for you. If it’s to complicated for you, change the layer blending mode to Multiply and keep it at the top.


I was watching this video and now I use the plugin in the youtube description rather than colourhalftone simply because it’s better, easier and has a wider range of tone sizes that you can create and takes out a lot of tediousness:

If I don’t do it there then I go to GIMP and use newsprint in distorts under the filters tab. I wrote a tutorial here on how to do that: [link]


How to install the plugin:
Go to C: drive, Programs, find the folder Adobe, go to the version of photoshop you have, I have photoshop elements 7.0 so that’s the folder I go into. This plugin works in pse7. When you are in go to the folder labelled plugins open, go to filters folder, open and paste the plug-ins there. If you have photoshop open already, save your work, close, re-open and it will be working and located all the way down the bottom of the filters list.

It’s VERY IMPORTANT TO CHANGE IMAGE TO GREYSCALE!! The tones will NOT work if you don’t change the image mode to greyscale!!
