Hello
How to change a threshold level between black and white when changing
image type to monochrome using "threshold" "Halftone" "Custom" mode in
MS Photo
Editor or in any other image editor?
I want to convert a grayscale black and white drawing to a monochrome
1bit image. Since I do not know how to change a threshold level between
black and white, the monochrome 1bit image results too light, some
details are disappeared.

When I have tried this I find I usually have to play with the contrast
and brightness controls a lot BEFORE I convert to the one-bit mode. I
also sometimes have to use a filter that washes out variations
spatially across the image.

It would seem to me that you are trying to convert a grayscalt to a line
drawing. I would try the find edges function then go about dropping the
unwanted tones and place emphasis on the edges. There is really no such
thing as a monochrome 1 bit image, other than that of a line drawing.

If you really want to do this it requires resampling to a huge output
file size & will be a slow memory intensive operation. You should be
asked what resolution to output, chose a higher number like 600dpi or
more. It won't be readable on a computer monitor until you zoom in 100%.
This is for making something that will xerox well or for making a
silkscreen print. It will use either lines or dots to represent the shades.
