    have you tried making a layer with that pattern on, then dropping the opacity levels down and adding it over the original image? just a thought

    Do you have Photoshop? If so, making a custom pattern is quite easy.

    In CS2:
    • Ctrl N (new document) 4 x 4 pixels, transparent background
    • Press Ctrl+ until you're at 1600% zoom
    • Press D for the default colors
    • Select the Pencil (B) tool, and set for 1px
    • Draw one pixel in the lower left and another in the upper right, then connect the two to create a diagonal pattern
    • Click the Edit menu and select "Define Pattern..."
    • Call it "Diagonal" or whatever you like


    Now load a photo and create a new, empty layer above it. Go to your Edit menu and select Fill. Under Contents choose Pattern, then find your new pattern (it will be the last one). Click OK.

    what I would do: open pain and make the patter on a white background using black lines...then import it into Photoshop or whatever you use to make your images and put it in a layer above your actual picture. Then I would put the alpha of the image you made and put over the actual picture to about 30-50% (so like 30-50% transparent, so that you can actually see through the black lines too).

    That pattern is called a halftone screen. Halftone patterns can be dots, ellipse shapes, or lines.

    Here is a tutorial

    and a link to some commercial packages so you can see what some different effects look like.
