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.
Add another cosmos image above all the other cosmos background previously created.
Mask the unneeded part of this second cosmos layer and set its blending to screen at 100% opacity
Now in this step we will set the overall adjustment to the scene by giving the scene a new adjustment layer: vibrance below the shadow layer. Set the vibrance layer to the amount as the one shown in the screenshot and keep it to normal blending at 100% opacity.
Duplicate the vibrance layer and set the duplicate to normal at 100% opacity. Here is the result should look.
Give another new adjustment layer above the vibrance layer. This time we will add hue/saturation for the adjustment layer and set the amount of the adjustment as shown in the screenshot. Mask some areas on the eyes and lips for this layer. Set this layer to normal blending at 100% opacity.
Duplicate the hue/saturation layer and set the duplicate to multiply at 100% opacity. Mask some area on the face areas a bit
Finally, duplicate the hue/saturation layer once again and set this duplicate to screen blending at 50% opacity.
Open the cosmos image again (the one used in creating the background in the previous step). Place this cosmos image above all the other layers in the layer panel. Scale its size and arrange its position in such way that the glowing planet of the image is in front of the model’s chest. Mask the unnecessary part of it. Set this layer blending to screen at 100% opacity.
Duplicate the cosmos layer two times. Set the first duplicate to screen blending mode at 100% opacity and the second one to overlay blending at 100% opacity. The result should like this one below
Then, we will set the two other adjustments to the entire scene. Firstly, we give photo filter adjustment layer set as the screenshot below. Keep this adjustment layer to normal at 100% opacity.
Now for the second adjustment, we will give gradient map adjustment layer. We will use one of the default gradients in the gradient presets is that the Violet, Orange Gradient. Set this gradient adjustment layer to soft light at 20% opcity.
This is the result so far…
Create a new layer above the adjustment layers. Take the brush tool and choose soft round brush set to 75-80% hardness. On this layer, paint a white half circle shape on the planet. I named this layer orb.
And here is the result after covering the planet:
Finally, hit Shift+Ctrl+Alt+E to stamp all the other layer into a new single later. Convert this stamp layer to smart object. Then, go to Filter > Others > Custom with the following setting.
Select the filter thumbnail mask and mask the background area and parts on the model’s face to hide the effect of the custom filter. That’s it,..we are done. Here is the result:
