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.
Step 14Almost done. Create a New Group place it above all your groups and rename it to 'Overlay'. Open the texture pack ( I used 5, 4, 3) and place it like so: Texture 4: Opacity 25% | Fill 30% | Blend Mode Multiply Texture 5: Opacity 25% | Fill 30% | Blend Mode Multiply Texture 3: Opacity 25% | Fill 75% | Blend Mode Darken If you're not fond of the texture pack used for this tutorial, you can always replace it with watercolor/ink splatter brushes (there are some here @PhotoshopTutorials.ws) or other textures. I think grain textures would be good too.
[OPTIONAL : OTHER COLORS] If you don't like the color green that was used for this tutorial, here are some easy ways to change it to other colors.First, Create a New Group and place it below the 'Overlay' group, you can rename it however you want. I renamed it 'OTHER COLORS'. Duplicate the Text group and then merge it.(I recommend duplicating it first so you can make certain changes to the text). Rename it to 'MERGED TEXT' and place it on the group we just made.
