Funky Halftone Overlays – CU OK!

Lately I have been obsessed with all things retro and have been trying to figure out how to make some halftone brushes and designs.  I played with the halftone filter in Photoshop but I was just not happy with the results. Then I found a couple of cool tutorials on YouTube and found out it is not a hard as I thought it would be to make cool halftone patterns. I made a bunch of overlays and I will be posting them the next couple of days, as well as (hopefully) some brushes. You may want to adjust the opacity for these to achieve the look you want.  I saved them as .pngs but the .zip was HUGE so I resaved them as .jpeg files instead. Tomorrow’s set will be less funky and more traditional looking halftones. And if I have time, I will post a tutorial on how to create these halftones in PSE.

Thank you so much these retro half tones are just brilliant, and I thought the preview was fine !!
A tutorial on making these or a link to the Youtube tut that you used would be awesome !!! I don't really need to make them now you have done the work, but it would be fabulous to be able to say I knew how, even though I don't need to do it now !!!
