Tutorials Photo Manipulation 2513 Views May 30th, 2017

Learn how to use a premium Photoshop action to create an apocalypse explosion photo effect in just a few steps. We'll turn a beautiful picture into a dead zone with a terrifying nuclear explosion blast, a true image of the apocalypse made in Photoshop.

apocalypse explosion effect Photoshop tutorial

Add your image in a new layer. For this tutorial I will use the little girl riding an elephant stock image.

For creating the apocalypse effect I will use this Dead Zone Photoshop Action that you can download from graphicriver. You have to load all the files (ABR, PAT and ATN) in Photoshop in order to use the action.

How to Load Brushes in Photoshop

Go to Edit > Preset Manager and choose Brushes from the preset type. Click load and load the ABR file.

How to Load Patterns in Photoshop

Go to Edit > Preset Manager and choose Patterns from the preset type. Click load and load the PAT file.

You can also select the ABR and PAT files and drag and drop them on the screen. You can also try to double click on the ABR and PAT file to load. It depends on the Photoshop version that you have.

How to Load Actions in Photoshop

Go to Window > Actions and click on the top right corner. Choose Load Actions to load the ATN file.

How to Use Actions in Photoshop

So you have one layer containing the image that you want to photo manipulate. Click on the "DED ZONE" action and click Play.

This is an awesome image! I wish this was a tutorial on this effect, rather than a tutorial on how to use the action. It's a cool effect! Thank you!
