Halftone density

When creating halftone patterns within channels, screen density depends upon the value of the grayscale shade you're converting. Here, a light gray converted to a halftone produces a dot pattern in which the dots do not touch and are surrounded by white space. If you were converting a very dark gray, there would be light colored dots, surrounded by areas of black. Try to envision the density of dot pattern you want to create before you fill your channel with a grayscale value, this will help you choose the right shade of gray and ultimately ensure that you get the selection you want from it.
