% $Id$ % helper file to simplify use of Stochastic Halftone - uses % This file sets the /StochasticDefault /Halftone as the current % and the /Default halftoning, loading the Stochastic halftone % if required. % Stochastic halftoning is recommended for inkjet printers, and may % produce output as pleasing as the more computationally expensive % "error diffusion" that *some* device drivers provide. % % % % % % For printing technologies other than inkjet, Stochastic halftoning may not look better than standard screening. In particular, thermal transfer and direct thermal tend to be better with standard ordered screening methods. Some laser printers may produce "smoother" looking gray shades with Stochastic halftoning. Try it, and if you like it, use it.

% Note that this /Default halftone can be overridden by PostScript % operators that set the screening or halftone (such as setscreen). % % % % % % To make Stochastic Halftone be "sticky" so that other screening and halftone setting in the subsequent PostScript will be ignored, use: -c "<< /HalftoneMode 1 >> setuserparams" on the command line prior to the file to be processed. For example, gs -c "<< /HalftoneMode 1 >> setuserparams" -f examples/tiger.eps

% Alternatively, the command to set the /HalftoneMode userparam can be % concatenated to this file (see below). % ===================================================================== % Try to get the previously defined resource { /StochasticDefault /Halftone findresource } stopped { pop pop % Need to load the Stochastic Halftone using the lib file ( runlibfile } if % If we didn't error out by now, then go ahead and define the /Default /StochasticDefault /Halftone findresource /Default exch /Halftone defineresource sethalftone % Use the halftone
