    I'm having trouble at 2:22 , Ctrl + delete , to get the background white. I have my layer locked because I'm trying to follow this as closely as I can.

    Hi Marty, perfect tutorial.
    I have a question: Would there be a way to make the dot pattern (halftones) configurable, make it smaller (pixel size), or with more or less separation, etc?
    It's for small resolution (320x200px) image, that dots seem too much big.
    Thank you very much.

    Hi Marty, this is Pablo from Argentina. I love your tutorial. It was really helpful. If I would like to print my pop art photo in High resolution (acrylic print) what image size should I use?
    I hope you are keeping safe and healthy.

    It's not working on my mac when I want to press cmd and delete on the mac. Nothing happens…?

  18. Cat

    Why the Halftone Pattern effects don't work in my photoshop?! please answer.

  19. Not far to go. You are #9 in the top 10 results for the keyword 'pop art'.You are almost there.

  20. i can´t have a crispy image like the tutorial, it came very dark the face 🙁 , any tips¡?

  21. potato

    When I do the half tone pattern, why does it make the light colors black for me and the dark colors white?? Please help

  22. Q. Strad

    after making copy pf my picture I cant do the filter gallery, I don't know what is wrong with mine?!

  23. Peter Walker

    grrr…the halftone pattern covers the whole image and there are no shadows and highlights…what am I doing wrong?


    Has the filter changed or am i doing it wrong? in the video there are no dots where the pure highlights are, just how i want it, but when i use the filter the dots are also in the highlights 🙁

  25. Ardensity

    1:05 Why did you decrease the pixels for the image? is it better to work with low pixels for the pop art effect?

  26. CaptainMyCaptain

    Your videos are awesome as always!! Thank you.
    Could you do one that is just a simple silk screen dotted image? Or even like an old computer from the 80s that does the dotted images?
