1. Intro: today. 2. Editing my Image: the way, the first thing you need to do is put your image to light room. I edited my fair to a little bit on. Then I changed the image to black and white on adjusted the Hughes, however you edit your image is up to you, obviously also created a mask on my model's face on adjusted the exposure. In contrast, Andi, I increased the sharpness and clarity just a tiny bit. - I played around with the tone a little more and also increased the clarity again. But for the entire image. That way you can see the difference between my original image on the edited one. 3. Adding the Glitch: next just import your edited photo into Photoshopped. Then I played around a little with cropping monuments just to make sure the model was perfectly centered. - Then you need to duplicate your image on right, click on and go to blending options. In the middle. You'll see three boxes with RGB, and you need to take the Are, which stands for Red Way E. You find an image of sin black on white bars. Just like this, I had to duplicate mine a couple times to start with sides of my picture. Then I just merged all these layers together and lowered the capacity Theo way. Now you need to duplicate your image and click on the top layer. Next, you need to create lots of boxes with the selection tour and click command T on your keyboard to move them slightly to the side. Now you just need to do. There's a bunch of times all of your image to complete your grit effect. As you saw at the start, I made some other examples, which I'll also leave at the end so you don't have to flip back. All of these images were created using the same technique I'll leave some of the answer. You can see them too. Almost. They're gonna create another class just showing you how I edited another one. But they were all edited using the same technique. Anyhow, I hope this class was helpful for some of you guys. If you have any questions, please let me know. Theo. Way change way today. 4.
