Sky Tones・How to change the concentration

 

The tone material of the Manga Materials has a layer structure that can not perform tonal correction and density adjustment with tone curve in order to prevent duplication of the cloud shape.

Reducing the opacity can be done by lowering the transparency inside the red frame.

bandicam-2016-11-18-15-32-59-043

 

 

 

Please duplicate the layer to increase the opacity.

 

 

 

You can fine-tune the opacity by decreasing the transparency of the duplicated layer.
However, in this state it is not reflected in printing yet.

 

 

 

In order to reflect on printing, move the dots of the duplicated layer slightly with the moving tool.

It`s done.

If you really want to adjust it by Tone Curve, press tone botton (return the layer to gray mode) and merge it with the bottom paper.
Please note that when merging with tone mode, the dots are rasterized and can not be restored to gray mode.
Be sure to merge the layers back to gray mode.
