Vectoraster is a graphics utility for creating custom vector halftones and line rasters based on images or gradients, based on images or dynamic gradients.

The halftone patterns and point shapes can be changed and varied across the pattern to produce many different styles. The resulting effect is always shown, with the preview updating in real time as you change parameters. The result can then easily be exported as vectors to EPS or PDF files, as images to JPEG, PNG or TIFF, or simply copied and pasted into most graphics software.

Earlier versions of Vectoraster 7, compatible with macOS 10.9 and 10.10 can be found here.

Review (German original)
"As I said, a niche application. But I like it very much: It dedicates itself to its niche with a seriousness, which one searches in vain for many mainstream programs. And with her various options, she opens up a creative mind to a huge creative hobby"
