Turn any photo into a dot grid artwork with these Photoshop actions. You'll get great results with dots that change size. They get larger in brighter areas and smaller in darker areas. Free download available.
If you have a bunch of photos to edit at once, make sure they are all in the same folder on your computer then open an image and record an action (Window > Actions). After creating an action, go to File > Automate > Batch then select the action that you just recorded. Click OK and Photoshop will open and play your action on all the images.
Get Rid of Shiny Skin
If you’re editing portraits, use the eyedropper to select a non-shiny area of the skin and then paint over the shiny areas with a normal brush set on 15% opacity. It will turn the shiny parts to matte.
Enhance the Color Palette
If you have a photo that’s a little dull in color, you can cross it with a masterpiece, like the Mona Lisa or a Hopper painting, in order to get a cool result! Just select Image>Adjustments>Match Color and then select the famous painting or photo you’ve chosen. Hit OK and see how it turns out!
