The tone and spatial characteristics of halftone patterns can be altered significantly by the printing process. In the current study, Linear Pixel Shuffling (LPS) and other types of halftone patterns were examined both for their printed tone reproduction characteristics (dot gain) and for the printed spatial characteristics (noise power spectra). Linear Pixel Shuffling introduces unique spatial properties and provides a variety of controls over both the printed noise power spectrum and the degree on clustering in the halftone image.
