Half Tone Effect

Here's a simple technique to achieve that half-tone effect.

1. Start by adjusting the contrast of the image.

2. Then create a new Layer (Ctrl+Shft+N), name it Halftone.

3. Select the brush tool and choose the soft brush and size should be 200px-500px depending on the size of your image, then set the opacity to 70%-80&.

4. Make sure that the Halftone layer is selected, go to Filter>Pixelate>Color Halftone.
I used the settings below, you can play with the figures though.

5. Desaturate the Layer (Shft+Ctrl+U) or go to Image>Adjustments>Desaturate.

6. The final step is to set the Blending Mode of the Layer to Hard Light.
You should be getting something similar to the image below.

Here's the final output, i flattened the layer & tweaked the Hue/Saturation settings.
