The goal of this paper is to investigate the effect of choosing a certain halftone screen on image graininess development and to establish the metrics for image graininess in high-end digital printing technologies. With the obtained knowledge, our model helps us choose the optimal periodicity matrices for designing regular or irregular clustered dot halftones. The main advantage of the proposed model lies in predicting the graininess ratios based solely on the periodicity matrix. We conduct an in-depth Fourier analysis, which exposes to us all the details regarding the spectrum of a desired halftone screen. Hence, at this stage of the design process, there is no need to generate the halftone screens themselves.
