Any way of getting rid of Ben-Day dots? As in, turning screentones to grayscale?

That works reasonably well. Used a color killer plugin though. Magic wand isn't sensitive enough. Better than selecting the outline and removing everything else, but still not perfect.

 

I wish I'd remember which post it was I had recently read about something like this. They advised using median blur, and some plugin that I ultimately traced down to gmic for gimp, but I can't seem to find the thread here.

Doing it manually isn't really possible when you're working with far bigger images. I was hoping there's a faster way, but I guess not.

 

No chance for a plugin that actually colours stuff a shade of grey depending on the density of the dots then :(

 

still, thanks for the advice

To get the right shade, you could use Effects > Blurs > Gaussian blur. 

 

Of course, you’ll lose all your sharp edges. So this will be a challenge. 

 

(You'd have st select all areas you want to be shaded first.)
