This assumes that your image is fairly clean and noise free. The dot placement algorithm tries to retain as much of the fine detail in the image as possible at the expense of perfect tonal reproduction in the detail - the tonal errors are averaged out over many dots. Consequently the contrast of the fine detail is stretched to the ink tonal separations and image noise can be exaggerated by this, but this can usually be controlled by application of a slight gaussian blur filter to eliminate the noise. -- Kennedy Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed; A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
