I am trying to achieve the exact effect as on the image above, starting from a screenshot. Any links to similar PS tutorials would be of great help.

    .. I believe that's an actual photo of a monitor, not a Photoshopped screen shot.

  1. Use Free Transform or the 3D-Tools to give the screenshot perspective.


  1. Apply a Depth of Field effect by using either Tilt-Shift (Filter > Blur Gallery > Tilt Shift) or Lens Blur (Filter > Blur > Lens Blur)

Add Blur

Optionally you can add scanlines, grain and color adjustments.

It's simple… first you can add some scanlines (or not) and then you do a special blur based on perspective. Maybe you can saturate a little bit more the colors, add add some grain.
