Do this to create a 3D GLITCH effect of a picture using Photoshop

The glitch effect has become increasingly popular in recent years, adding a digital, retro aesthetic to photos. Photoshop provides a wide range of tools that can be used to create this effect. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through the steps to create a glitch effect in Photoshop.

Below are the steps in creating a glitch effect:

Step 1: Select the image you want to apply the glitch effect to. It's best to choose an image with high contrast and bold colors for the best result.

Step 2: Create a duplicate layer of the original image by pressing Ctrl+J (Windows) or Command+J (Mac). Name this layer "Glitch."

Step 3: Apply the Wave filter: Go to Filter > Distort > Wave. This will open the Wave dialog box. Use the sliders to adjust the settings until you achieve the desired glitch effect. You can experiment with different settings until you find the effect you like.

Step 4: Apply the Polar Coordinates filter: Go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates. This will open the Polar Coordinates dialog box. Choose the "Rectangular to Polar" option and click OK. This will give the image a circular distortion.

Step 5: Create another duplicate of the Glitch layer by pressing Ctrl+J (Windows) or Command+J (Mac). Name this layer "Displacement."

Step 6: Apply the Displace filter: Go to Filter > Distort > Displace. This will open the Displace dialog box. Choose the settings that suit your image best. You can experiment with different values until you find the effect you like.

Step 7: Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and adjust the blur radius. Duplicate the layer and apply the "Difference" blending mode. This will create an RGB split effect.

Step 8: Merge the layers Merge all layers by selecting them and pressing Ctrl+E (Windows) or Command+E (Mac). Name this layer "Glitch Effect." Or a name you prefer.

Step 9: Save the image Once you're satisfied with the result, save the image by clicking on File > Save As.

In all, creating a glitch effect in Photoshop is a fun and easy way to give your images a digital, retro aesthetic. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can achieve a realistic and eye-catching glitch effect. Remember to experiment with different settings and adjustments until you find the effect that suits your image best.
