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.
After that, change the Blending mode to Color and set the Opacity to 50%. Finally, let’s add a Photo Filter adjustment layer.
Input the following settings for the Photo Filter:
- Filter: Warming Filter (85)
- Density: 25%
- Preserve Luminosity: Check
The image should now be looking like this:
Once it is flat, duplicate it (Ctrl/Cmd + J); click on the duplicated layer and then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur.
- Input the following:
- Radius: 16.0 pixels
After that, you’d see that your image is really blurry; so to make it glowing, change the Blending mode of the blurred (duplicated layer) to Lighten and set its opacity to 35%. The result should be like this.
