What is dither effect?
  • The dither effect in images is a technique used to create the illusion of more colors or shades in an image than are actually present.
  • This is done by adding a pattern of pixels to an image that simulates additional colors or shades.
  • This technique is often used in digital image processing, particularly in the reduction of the number of colors in an image (color quantization) or in the conversion of an image to a different color depth (such as from 24-bit to 8-bit).
