Dispersion Effect: Photoshop Tutorial

In this Photoshop Tutorial, I will teach you how to create a dispersion effect. This effect has become very popular. It looks fairly complicated, but it’s actually quite simple. I believe the hardest part was finding the perfect free brush set for the effect. Which I have provided below. A few things we’ll be doing is creating the effect using brushes and masks. We’ll also be using a broken glass texture. I will then add a nice gradient for the image, then for the final step, I will sharpen the image and effect to make it stand out much more. I hope you like this tutorial.
