So if you always wanted to transform your images into something interesting this is a perfect example for you.

Anyway, lets get started ;)

 

Technique 1 - Square glitches

This is how you create squares like on the image.

  1. Create a duplicate of the image
  2. Use rectangular marquee tool to select the areas of the image you want in the squares
  3. Create the mask
  4. Open layer styles and use color overlay to give the squares red color

 

For video explanations just see the class

 

Technique 2 - Wind effect

For the windy effect like on the image do this.

  1. Select the main image
  2. Go to filters > stylize > wind
  3. Choose on of the options and press okay
  4. Now you will see the wind effect
  5. You mask of the effect to control where you display the wind

 

Technique 3 - Stretching effect

For the "Broken nose and hands" effect do this.

  1. Select the main image
