B/W Threshold
« on: May 01, 2016, 03:32:52 PM »
I understand that this setting decides if a pixel will be labeld as 'black' or 'white'
but should it ever be adjusted? and what direction does what, -its set at .7

I have messed around with it a little and didn't see too much impacts staying within the range provided.    BTW it only works in the Black and White Mode so testing in grayscale will provide zero impacts

Speaking of which I don't quite understand the difference between Dithered and black-and-white,
Dirhered is pixels in black-and-white, isn't  black-and-white just black-and-white pixels also?

Dithered is only on/off but it simulates different levels using a complex algorithm of pixels, and the results can look almost as good as greyscale. B/W by comparison is more applicable to line art drawings.
