Halftone Effect

Author: LunaL

Step 1 - Grayscale

When you have opened the image that you want to add the half tone effect to the first step is to make it black and with to be able to use the halftone screen option of Photoshop.

You will get another window where you can set some options for halftone screen, I used a frequency of 400 and set the shape to Ellipse.

Step 3 - Saving

Only problem when you're done, you cannot save as a jpg file. You can of course save it as a gif.

I just hit *screen shot*and opened the picture in another paint program.

Cut it out and saved is as a jpg there.
