Hi everyone. Any idea how this effect (the dotting) can be achieved in PS CS2?
Try the halftone feature.
EDIT: Here is a good explanation of Halftones
I'd use the halftone filter, with all channels set to the same rotation (or just put it in black and white, that'll work. That won't be exactly the same as the CI filter though, since the color halftone doesn't do any color but black for the black channel.
To get it looking the same, I just duplicated the layer, and did a color halftone on that. Then I blurred the lower layer (original photograph) and set the upper layer (halftoned) to the Screen blending mode. You can also blur the halftone layer a bit to get the softer edges for the dots. Play with the levels or curves on the halftone layer a bit to get some of that gray bleed-in in the darker areas. Just some thoughts.
color halftone (in filters)...
Thanks Guys. Now I just have to decide which one I like better..
Another method is convert the image to grayscale and then to bitmap and to use the Halftone Screen.
In the Halftone Screen box I set the Frequency to 60 and the shape to square.
Next just use the Lens blur
Here are some settings that work well
Blade Curvature 6
Noise amount 7
I next just altered the brightness and the contrast to darken the image.
Here is the picture I converted.
You may need to alter the settings slightly, for your own needs.
