That’s a halftone. Halftone is the reprographic technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size, in shape or in spacing, thus generating a gradient like effect. It can be achieved in Photoshop by choosing Filter → Pixelate → Color Halftone. The example you posted looks like the halftone version of the ...

The hatching can be achieved by using pattern.Once you create a pattern,you can control the direction of hatching as required. Below are the steps to apply hatching to your drawing (I will apply this in a simple rectangle). Create a closed path for which hatching is required(I have used a simple rectangle) Now draw a line using pen tool and convert the ...

Start with a normal Drop Shadow. Play a little with the settings (Don’t forget to use Spread). Right-click the Effect Layer and select Create Layer (Ignore any warning dialogue). Merge the new Drop Shadow layer with your white background (Or create a Smart Object from them). If you like you can tweak the shadow a little bit with Curves or Levels to make ...

Draw a rectangle that covers the whole canvas. Make sure you have "Smart Guides" activated (View->Smart Guides or Ctrl+U) Draw a bunch of black (or any other colour) lines creating your design. The lines can intersect (encouraged) but make sure they touch each other or they touch the border of the rectangle (i.e. the border of the canvas). This is why ...

From an architectural standpoint try to think of these not as triangles but as surfaces. Surfaces are made up of sides. In this case these just happen to be, mostly though not entirely, triangles. Use the line tool, not the polygon tool. For a quick example here's a rough animation:

I found a quickish method! You had almost all of the workflow, and the 'cutout' part that you had, is what I was missing when trying at first. Starting with this image, because I couldn't find the one you're using: The longest part for me was masking out the background. You may also need to add a Black & White adjustment layer after step 2 if you're ...

It's called posterization (as it was a technique to allow for making posters easier via screen printing, block printing, or lithography). The most common ways to achieve it: use the 'posterize' filter in your raster image editor of choice (photoshop, pixelmator, GIMP, etc.) use a vector tracing tool (as previously mentioned)

You might be able to achieve this using filters, but I would actually consider redrawing the photo entirely using Illustrator a similar vector tool. You can do this using the Pen Tool. To make things easier, start by pasting the photo you want to convert, and maybe turning it into B&W and increasing the contrast. That will give you a nice base to work ...

The procedure to create complex gradient is eventually pretty easy. In Illustrator: Sep 1) Create a rectangle the size of your canvas, with no stroke or fill Step 2) Now you need to create what is called "Gradient Mesh"! You'll find its icon in the toolbar. Step 3) with the tool active, simply click where you want to add a pivot (sort of control point) ...

In GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), you can halftone a photo with Filters > Distorts > Newsprint. On deviantART, istarlome provided a tutorial for halftoning in GIMP. Here's the gist: Create an image. Either open an existing photo or create a new canvas and apply a gradient. If the image has fine detail, use Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur to hide ...

The first image looks like a direct Live Trace in Illustrator. In order to get better results you can boost the contrast of the image before live tracing it and after that as well. This is how the results look like: It's a good idea to clean some important curves and lines, so that they don't look so random.

On paper, they'd be high-contrast duotones. Or, possibly monotones printed on colored paper with opaque inks (such as via screen printing). Possible other ways to describe the effect would include: photocopy (tends to be high contrast, one color) halftone (not really a style shown here on screen at this size, but part of the aesthetic ala newspapers) ...

You can use imagemagick's distort filter. In particular, the Barrel distort or Cylinder2Plane should accomplish what you want. After you've composited your images: convert input.png -matte -virtual-pixel transparent -distort Barrel "0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 -0.4 1.6" output.png or convert input.png -virtual-pixel transparent +distort Cylinder2Plane ...

Here is my shot I have used Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, Gradient Overlay and Satin Screenshots of used effects Drop Shadow : [ Blend_Mode:multiply,100%,#000000 ] [ Angle:120, Global_Light:No ] [ 4px:0%:1px ] [ Contour:Defaults/CoveDeep ] [Noise: 0% ] Inner Shadow : [ ...

Well, you're on the right track. The key is to use layer styles. Here's my shot: Settings: Add Bevel & Emboss. Choose "Chisel Hard" under technique, play around with the settings and use the "Cove - Deep" preset under Contour. Add a dark grey to bright white linear Gradient Overlay. Angle it and limit it so that it begins with the white in ...

I think you were on the right track with your watermarking option, but you left too much of the original image in tact. Here are two images I tried that Google was unable to find: Checkerboard Reverse image search results Mosaic Reverse image search results Another example Reverse image search results The first image returns a lot of "checkered ...

This is how I would go about it. You will need an image in good resolution (as big as the zoomed part). Pardon my very simple samples, I hope you can get the idea anyway! Open the image. Make a round selection of the part you will want zoomed in using the Elliptical Marquee Tool. Once you have your circle selected, copy and paste in a new layer (one way ...

The drop shadow appears on both objects because the anchored object is part of the main text frame object. Instead of applying the effect to the text frame object, apply it to the fill. Since the fill is contained in the text frame object, and not the anchored object, the shadow will appear only behind the text frame. (Note that this only works if the text ...

Google may use a different system but a large number of such services (tineye included) use perceptual hashes where the overall hash is close enough to be a match, rather than exact. A whitepaper showed up a few years back which detailed the process. I haven't been able to find a link to it, but the basic system relies on a action chain to generate the ...

The specifics of this style are: line art uses heavy weight lines line color is a deep shade of main colors in logo (as opposed to black) insides areas are filled in with flat areas of color, but multiple areas are used to create shadows and shading. As for 'how to make them' you'd draw them, but then incorporate the above features into your drawing. If ...

I've created an Adobe® Illustrator® Plug-in called Oblique Projection 'opo' to automate the creation process of Parallel 3D Effect (Extrude Effect). It is quick and gives you full control over the appearance of the extrusion. Everything is on one layer so you can easily separate it from the rest of the artwork. Plus it is divided into logical parts - this ...

You can do this in Illustrator by simply stacking fills and adjusting them via the Appearance Panel. The Transform effect for each fill, simply moves the fill vertically so they are off-center.

That is an anamorphic 3d (stereo vision) illustration. If you put on a pair of red/green stereo glasses you'll see the effect. The "broken line" is part of the 3D illusion.

The effect in question is a glow. Glow is colour radiating from the object edges, to either inwards or outwards, usually with a blur making the colour a gradient fading away. As in here, this is a white glow with 5 px blur made with Illustrator: Despite the name, glow doesn't have to be an actual glow, but can also radiate darker colours, and at least in ...

Make a greyscale image, save as either a JPG or TIFF (doesn't work with EPSs) and import into InDesign. Colour the box as usual, and use the direct selection arrow to colour the image.

That's an example of the subtractive color synthesis. In illustrator you can do that by using a subtractive blend mode like multiply in the transparency panel: To prove the concept I'm using 3 text elements filled with cyan, magenta and yellow. When all the layers overlap, they subtract from each other resulting in black

You could try recreating the color effect using tie dye brushes, and then the Smudge tool to create the transition to white. For example:

Just to add on @cockypup Another way to make things easy to apply colour, use the same approach as @cockypup showcased but instead of using the Pathfinder to explode the object to pieces, I would suggest using Live Paint. So once you have drawn the big rectangle and created the lines that cut through. Select All and chose Live Paint under Menu--->Object. ...

You can use an online tool like this triangulation tool or this Delaunay triangulations tool with images that you upload.

This is known as a halftone effect. Googling that term will yield lots of tutorials on how to achieve it.
