Graffiti Effect with Pop Up Photoshop Action Tutorial
Tutorials Photo Effects 4809 Views March 23rd, 2017

Learn how to create graffiti effect in Photoshop using this cool action. In this tutorial you will find a step by step guide on how to achieve the graffiti street art with pop-up effect.


To create the graffiti art with pop-up effect in just a few steps, first we have to download the graffiti Photoshop action.

Install the Photoshop Files

Inside the ZIP file you have 3 files that you have to install in Photoshop: ABR file, PAT file and ATN file.

Go to Edit > Preset Manager and choose the Preset Type: Brushes / Patterns and load first the ABR brushes file and after the PAT patterns file.

To install the ATN action file go to Window > Actions and choose Load Actions from the top right corner menu.

Make sure you have the Brush Tool set to Normal and that Opacity and Flow are both set to 100% .

Now we are ready to use the action properly. Simply play the "STEP 1 - GRAFFITI EFFECT" action. The action stops with this message:

  • 1. Please open a new PSD file, 72 dpi, RGB color mode
  • 2. Your canvas becomes the background wall
  • 3. RESUME PLAY after that

Create the Graffiti Background Brick Wall

So let's create a new PSD file of 1000x800px size. This is the background brick wall. Resume play the action.

Before adding your image you can change the Pattern Overlay of the Background Wall layer. By default is set to 50% but if you have a bigger size image you can set it to 100%. This step is OPTIONAL.

If you change the Pattern Overlay you have to select the Curves adjustment again (just click on the layer name). Add your image and position it where you want it to be placed.

Resume play the action from where it stopped.
