Hi, 

Are you looking for contributors? I found the development guidelines on your website but not the code or a list of tasks to work on. If there's nothing in particular to work on, I would love to add some parameters to the halftone image generator.

Picture to People computer graphics libraries are not open source. I have always been developing them all by myself since the beginning.

I got curious. What parameters do you think the Halftone Image Generator could have?

If there are no contributors, what is the purpose of the development guidelines?

I thought it could be really cool to achieve the moire effect that you get when you "jitter" the layers of a CMYK halftone print. (The dots aren't right on top of each other but slightly off)

All the pages about Picture to People internals, like the page about Maccala features for example (http://www.picturetopeople.org/dev/maccala_features.html), aim to show how the project is based on powerful and high quality software. A sponsor interested on using the libraries as a remote graphic design service, for example, could like to know a little about how things are inside.

I could not see your images (maybe a bug on Google groups), but I know about moiré patterns. Thanks for your suggestion.
