Let's Start!

Step 1: Open up your image. Any person's image will work with this. I'm using
this image :

Step 2: Go to Image > Adjustments > Threshold. Keep the Threshold level to 80 - 90.

Step 3: Set the layer's blending mode to Overlay.

Step 4: Make a new layer. Layer > New > Layer. Move it below your original image layer.

Then fill it with a gradient && you're done! :)

yeah, i agree with vogueXdirge.
not exactly retro, but still cool.

I don't think 'retro' is the right word for it, but it is a cool effect.
