Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Experimenting with pointillist techniques, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters.
The Pointillize filter in the Pixelate group is designed to simulate the effect …of the pointillism painting style which was popular in France in the late 19th century. …You can adopt two different approaches to pointillism in Photoshop. …One is very simple and straightforward. And the other is far more time consuming, …but ultimately yields a better result. Because of the similarities between …pointillism, where the tonality of an image is built up through multiple dots …of pure color overlapping dots. The similarities of that to the CMYK …printing process, in both cases you will get a better result using a CMYK as …opposed to an RGB image. So this is the result using the …Pointillism filter and not much else. And this is the result of separate layers …of color with a Pointillize filter applied independently to those separate …layers of color. And you have here the option of changing …the actual colors that you're working with.…
In both cases, this is our starting point. …And the first thing I want to do here is convert this image to CMYK. …
