Hello, today I will show you how easy it is to create a broken glass effect. We will use of course a photoshop broken glass free brush available on the internet. But you can try to make your own broken glass brush from a broken glass image.

It is now time to add more broken spots so duplicated this layer and rotate it, scale it or whatever you like so you can add extra effect, something like this:

Now merge the three layers and change the blending mode to Screen 60%. The parts of the broken image that are not right simply delete it with the Eraser Tool.

The final touch is to select with Magic Wand Tool the missing glass areas . Press SHIFT to make multiple selections and make sure the Contiguous option is checked. Than return to Glass Layer and press delete.

Thank you so so much. I'm planning on re-designing my website which is Emergency Glazier
and I'm looking for tutorials to create a large banner. Hopefully if it turns out well enough I will show it on here! reply

The brightness of the image makes it seem like you're on the outside looking in. I think it should be darker. reply
