I'm looking to re-create a specific effect – one I made before I think using a filter, but can't remember how I did it (see attached image) – have tried them all to no avail. The speckles have a molecule-like look. Any suggestions? speckled effect

Pixelate > Pointillize, with a big cell size (20-30px). If you want a black background make sure you set Black as your background color before you run the filter.
