Disintegration Effect: Photoshop Tutorial

In today’s step by step Photoshop tutorial. We will be learning how to create a Disintegration Effect. We will be focusing on adding the disintegration effect by using “particle” Photoshop brushes, Masks and the Liquify tool. We also we will adding a cracked texture and blending/warping it to look as if it’s wrapping around her face. I will also be using the Camera Raw filter a little bit and adjustment layers to make the color of the image really stand out. For the final step I will show you how to make the model eyes stand out immensely. Hope you enjoy. Don’t forget to leave a like! 🙂

    I enjoyed learning from the well planned and executed explanation of camera lenses and trick photography. Written in a conversational tone. Short and sweet tour of the terminology and techniques of contemporary Digital SLR camera lenses: "glass". The best part is the very helpful graphics that make it easy to understand basic lens concepts and
    secret photography. https://twitter.com/arhaanctg1/status/898965859091206144
