Step 18. Change the Max. Radius to about 8 Pixels. If you’re using a smaller image. I recommend below 8, try 6. Keep the rest of the channels set to default.
Step 19. After the halftone is applied. Change the Blending Mode to Soft Light. I will then bring down the layer opacity to about 30%.
Step 20. Select the top layer (Halftone) Then press CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + E. This will merge all visible layers.
Step 21. Make sure the Merged layer is selected. It should be the top one. Then head down to the bottom and select FX > Blending Options.
Step 22. Click on Stroke which is on the left hand side of the popup window. Here we’ll be able to create a border. Hit OK when you’re done.
Size: 10px – 40px
Blend Mode: Normal
Change the Color: White.
