Re: any idea how to get this look?

interesting picture... not this is the ghetto version of how i think its done...

Got the picture from HERE.

First extracted some dots. Then colored them. Made them smaller and kept duplicating will filled whole image.

Set layer to overlay. Then made a hue/sat that would only effect the dots layer. Masked out the person and increased the lightness until white. This made the BG dots green and the FG (person) dots white.

Pro would have had own dots and no seems. I didn’t know how to make that many dots...

Hope it helps,

Re: any idea how to get this look?

igot2pman seems to have a decent approach to the method of applying the dots.

My approach is similar as well:
Create a pattern of white soft dots
Fill a new layer with the pattern
on new layer apply various colors to the dots to achieve the varying colors, etc.
Mask out dots where you would not want them to appear (i.e.: eyes, et al)

An effect for "Television scan lines" is achieved in similar fashion, only you use a pattern made from a 2 x 2 or 4 x 4 pixel square where the top half is filled with black...

I think you could look into VanDerLee's Halftone plug in.

Re: any idea how to get this look?

Photoshop has it's own bitmap creation built in. Go to image -> mode -> bitmap. Your image must be grayscale first. Then simply choose the resolution, select "halftone screen" from the dropdown box, and in the next dialogue, choose a relatively low number (20 or so). Voila, instant halftone screen. Integrate this into your source image however you would like. Much easier than creating dots on your own.

Re: any idea how to get this look?

I agree with jam1212. But once you create that halftone image, just paste it back into your original image. You can do a gaussian blur and levels adjustments to get the edges of the dots smooth. Then you can just set the pattern layer to a blending mode or create a new alpha channel and use it as mask on cooler effects.

Here is a quick example that I threw on a chunk of an unretouched image. I think this is just setting the halftone layer to 'screen' blending mode. You can get the dots a lot sharper. Also, you can create some wild effects with blending modes, especially if you use the halftone pattern as a mask.

Before making the halftone pattern, it isn't a bad idea to reduce the contrast of the image to nearly light gray, since exceptionally light or dark areas will get fewer dots (or nearly none), especially if you blur and do a levels to smooth it out afterwards.
