Retro Halftone Effects | Photoshop Tutorial

In this tutorial, I’ll run through a setup I use to create halftone effects in Photoshop. Great for posters, apparel, stickers, or just creating cool retro-lookin stuff! This approach will bypass the halftone filters and create the effect from scratch, with the added benefit of being live and adjustable. In the second half of the video, we’ll take a look at some custom settings to bring additional color or transparency into the image.
