Image effect in photoshop


Well-Known Member
Hi Everyone :)

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have seen a image of a album cover online with a fab effect and I would like to achieve this same effect on one of my own images in photoshop. This is the link to image with the effect http://beatsmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/ARMA306-Roger-Shah-Open-Minded.jpg. Any ideas?

Thanks :)
Might be an idea to state which part of the image you're looking at re-creating. Are you referring to the squares breaking off of the face?
What Arrivals said :icon_smile: But It could be done applying an opacity mask to the key image, masking out critical areas etc. then a new layer with the bricks flying out etc. It's actually not that tricky.

Square brush tool with scattering and varying hue should get you the pixel effect. Then it's just a case of masking off the parts of the face you don't need.
