COMMENT: Halftones are made by breaking up a continuous tone pattern into a series of dots of varying sizes. When printed, the dots appear to merge into a continuous tone, though if you look at them closely the dots are visible. The dots are created by scanning or by photographing the original through a screen, which is a mesh of criss-cross lines or a series of dots.
