Download for free the glitch PSD mock-up and use it to create realistic VHS tape effects in under a minute using your own photos. The glitch effect has all the layer styles intact and uses non-destructive smart objects and smart filters so you can make tones of adjustments in terms of color. The corrupt image effect can also be customized.

Back in the 80s my family got our first VCR. You could not imagine the excitement of being able to watch movies in our home (which was something pretty special those days). Nowadays VCR and VHS are known mostly by retro enthusiasts.

You have to replace the image. Open the "ADD YOUR IMAGE INSIDE" smart object and add your image inside.
The Glitch animated effect is not included. reply
