Easy Glitch and Easy Halftone Pattern Effects in Photoshop

Posted on 13th March 2019
 First, let’s start with the “Glitch Effect”:

1 - In Photoshop, open the Image you chose to work with.



2 - Go to the “Channels Panel”. If its not opened go to Windows > Channels.



3 - Select the “Red Channel” only by clicking the small eye icons on the left side of the other Channels.



4 - With the “Red Channel” selected go to Filter > Distort > Shear, select the “Repeat Edge Pixels” button and move the center very slightly to a side.





5 - Click on the “RGB Channel” to Turn back On the rest of the Channels and check how it looks.



6 - With the “Red Channel” selected again go to Filter > Stylize > Wind and select the “Wind” and “From the Right” buttons.









7 - Now, select the “Blue Channel” and apply the “Wind” Filter but this time use “From the “Right”.







8 - Check it out.



Now, the “Halftone Effect”:

9 - In Photoshop, open the Image you chose to work with.



10 - Right-click on top of its Thumbnail and choose “Create Smart Object”.





11 - Go to Filter > Pixelate > Color Halftone and use the following values. Max Radius: 8 Pixels, Channel 1: 108, Channel 2: 162, Channel 3: 90 and Channel 4: 45.









12 - If you want to modify the settings, double-click on top of the “Color Halftone” Effect Thumbnail to open the Panel and change the values. We used Max Radius: 10 Pixels, Channel 1: 45, Channel 2: 45, Channel 3: 45 and Channel 4: 45 this time. Or, Max Radius: 10 Pixels, Channel 1: 100, Channel 2: 45, Channel 3: 100 and Channel 4: 45.









13 - To further modify the look you can double-click the small icon in the bottom-right side of the Thumbnail (Smart Filters) to open the “Blending Options” window and change it. We tried “Lighter Color” and “Darken” with 80% “Opacity”.







14 - Here are some cool results.
