Halftone images use a special screen to make an image consisting of various sizes of dots. This simulates shades of grey in a photograph. Newspapers and magazines use halftones to save on printing costs. You can convert an image to halftone with CorelDRAW.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open CorelDRAW and open the image you wish to convert.

    Click "Bitmap" followed by "Convert to Bitmap." A menu will pop up. Select "96 dpi" for the resolution and "Grayscale" for the colour. Check that "Transparent Background" is on. Click "OK."

    Click "Effects," then "Adjust." Adjust the contrast of the image to between 30 and 45. Click "Brightness/Contrast/Intensity."
