Click Auto to ask Photoshop to generate the screen frequencies and angle it thinks are appropriate for each color in a full-color image. However, if you do use the Auto Screens setting, avoid changing the settings unless directed to do so by your service bureau.
Specify the Shape for your individual dots of ink—Round, Diamond, Ellipse, Line, Square, Cross, or Custom. If you're printing to a PostScript Level 2 (or higher) printer, select Use Accurate Screens to permit Photoshop access to any information needed for high-resolution output.
To save your halftone settings, click Save. Or to turn your settings into the default halftone screen settings, press the ALT (Windows) or OPTION (Mac) key and click the Default button.
