    Default Halftone Retro Effect

    1. Open your image



    2. Duplicate(Ctrl+J) your image three times. Here's what your layer palette should look like. I've renamed the layers to Image 1, Image 2 and Image 3..so it'll be easier to identify them in this tutorial.



    3. Now turn off the very top layer (Image 3) by clicking the eye icon beside it in the layer palette. Select the Image 2 layer in the layer palette. Set the blending mode to Overlay.



    4. Turn the Image 3 layer back on. Go to Filter > Sketch > Halftone Pattern. Adjust the setting on the right until you get something like this:



    setting:



    5. Set the blending mode of Image 3 layer to Color Burn. Duplicate(Ctrl+J) Layer 3 copy set the blending mode to Soft Light with this layer and you get the result of this tutorial.



    .. a lovely halftone retro photo effect with vibrant coloring.
