Introducing the Bitmap LAB - Adobe Photoshop action that produces an instant halftone pixel effect!
This powerful tool allows you to easily transform any graphics into a unique and eye-catching retro halftone design with just one click.
Using advanced Photoshop algorithms, the Bitmap LAB action converts your photos, text, vectors, illustrations, or 3D renders into a stunning array of halftone pixels, also known as dithering.
With 4 different dithering styles and 48+ versatile actions included as ATN Photoshop files, this tool offers almost limitless creative potential that is really only limited by your imagination. Experiment with a variety of presets and achieve the perfect look for your project.
Bitmap LAB features the 4 most popular algorithms from the old computer era of the 1980s-90s including 8-bit halftone patterns, dithering, glitching, and pixelation:
■ Ordered Dithering - creates a classic 1-bit pattern halftone effect with a cross-stitch appearance.
■ Diffusion Dithering - creates a more organic look with a smooth halftone color transition.
■ Glitch Dithering - adds a touch of digital distortion, creating a unique and edgy geometric look.
■ Pixel Dithering - creates a blocky, pixelated look that is perfect for achieving a retro video game aesthetic.
Each dithering algorithm includes 12 presets, allowing you easily select the number of colors and intensity of the halftone effect, giving you complete control over the final outcome.
But wait, there's more! Bitmap LAB now features PDF vector export.
Transform your bitmap halftone images into resolution-independent PDF vectors, enabling you to scale them to any size without compromising on quality. Enjoy the freedom to use your halftone designs across a wide range of applications, from screen printing to large-scale billboards.
