    You may have seen the small portraits in the Wall Street Journal:

    If you do not know them, they are pointillistic versions of portrait photos.

    What are these types of images called?
    How are they created, or rather: what is the name of the particular filter or process called?

    Thanks in advance

    The technique is called stippling. The dots are drawn with a pen on paper, or in print, are carved out or engraved on a solid surface and transferred to paper by a press process.

    If you have Photoshop, you might have that type of effect under filters. I know there are lots of artistic effects available, though it might not be called stippling.
