    Hey Marty,

    In the first step where you’re adjusting the height to 1000px and the
    resolution to 150px, I unfortunately don’t have these options to select
    from… I am using CS4 on a Mac but on document size I can only select from
    percent, inches, cm, mm, points or picas, but not pixels? What should I do
    to make these changes, as I’ve found the rest of the tutorial doesn’t work
    properly if the document is not set up right :(

    Hi Marty,
    I notice you tend to use resolutions of anywhere from 72 to 150 for your
    projects. I would want to print some of these out and would like to know;
    1) Is 150 resolution enough to print an 8″x10″ or larger and not be
    2) If I need to bump up the resolution for to say 240 for printing how will
    it effect the image in this tutorial?
    3) Will I need sharpening and which would you suggest for printing?
    4) Do you have these tutorials in written form?

    Thank you kindly

    At 5:45, it should be “Color halftone layer” not “Color Vibrance layer” in
    the narration.

    +Blue Lightning TV I was wondering if you could do an update to your old
    Obama Hope Poster, and perhaps make it smoother, because I feel like it was
    a little jagged, but the whole tutorial was really good.

    Great tutorial, especially the part where you tell how to set the size for
    the effect to work correctly. I hate it when they say “filter values vary
    with image size”, a lousy disclaimer.

  17. TJ Fowler says:

    Pretty cool Vid Marty. I like a lot of your stuff actually. Very
    informative and helpful.
