 +Two or more colors are placed close to each other, the original intention being to create the illusion of an extra color which would otherwise not be available due to [[restrictions]].
 +Another intent for dithering can be to create a sense of [[texturing|texture]]. Texture can be an unwanted side effect on modern screens if the [[contrast]] between the mixed colors is too high, so that the pixels are clearly visible instead of blending into each other as on blurry screens.
 +Dithering may also employ stylized regular or irregular patterns which is related to [[shape bluffing]] and [[texturing]] more than to mixing colors.
 +Dither-AA refers to an attempt to [[aa|antialias]] by using proximity-mixed(dithered) colors.
