Rasterize Tool/Dithering

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how to create a dithering effect like the one shown below? The specific instructions someone gave me were to use the rasterize tool and decrease the amount of colors “until it looks bad“, but I’m not sure how to do that. I see that there are some plug-ins I can use to make a similar effect but as far as I know they did not use them. How would I achieve this affect?

G'MIC - > Testing -> Reptorian -> Transfer Colors [Reduced Colors]


Never mind, it doesn't do self-color reduction. I could however make a g'mic filter that does that.

Does the Quantize effect do what you want?


Effects -> Color -> Quantize

Yeah, that's exactly what I was looking for! Thank you.

It's brand new in the 4.2.16 update :) People seem to really like it, which was a pleasant surprise. I added it mostly because I could, and because it helped me a lot while debugging all the new code for quantization while saving!
