For this creative challenge i looked in the assignment bank and chose to do this visual assignment of creating a halftone affect to a image. For the software I chose to use was Photoshop. In order to do this assignment i had to drag my image into photoshop.

Here are the steps on how i did it below:

First, right click the image’s menu-bar and select “Duplicate, then click ok which then created a second copy of the image and then in the new image, go to Image ->Mode and select Grayscale and click ok, then go to Image -> Mode again and select Bitmap. Then make sure you have “Halftone Screen…” selected in the Method field and click ok. Adjust the field labeled Frequency. Choose any number between 1 and 999 and click OK. Keep doing this until the halftone pattern is the size you want it to be.Optional: There is a drop-down list at the bottom of the window labeled Shape. You can experiment with these to find the style that suits your picture!Go to Image -> Mode and select Grayscale. When prompted, input 1 and click OK. In the Layers window, double-click the “Background” layer and select OK. It should now read Layer 0. Using the Move Tool, drag the halftone image into the original window. You can now close the duplicate window. In the Layers window, open the first drop-down menu and select Overlay.
