Day One Hundred & Fifty-Three

Today I worked on my end of year poster, I was working with creating a VHS glitch look in a photo.

I started with a photo of myself and I used a font called game over, and put play in the top right corner and using the shape tool I put a triangle. I then merged all of the layers together and duplicated it four times. I then made all but the first two  invisible and double clicked it, I checked off the green and blue colors in the layer style. I then double clicked the third layer and checked off just the red. On the fourth layer I created a hue/saturation layer on it, I changed saturation to 100%. I then applied a clipping mask on it and a vector mask on the third layer. I filled the vector mask with black using alt-left click. I then clicked M and selected certain areas where I wanted to reveal the mask, and filled those in white.

I then then created a new layer and filled it white. I wen to Filter>Filter Gallery>Sketch and selected Halftone Pattern, changed size to 2 and contrast to 2. I then double clicked the layer and and applied the blending mode: Overlay and opacity: 25% and unchecked the red and blue channels. I then duplicated the texture layer and then use Control-T while holding Shift to rotate it 90° and resize to the borders. Double Click on the layer and set the following settings: Blending Mode: Normal; Opacity: 15%, and unchecked the Green and Blue color channels. Click U and select Rectangle Tool. Then create a shape with the following settings: Width: 1800 px; Height: 120. Right Click on the rectangle layer and select Rasterize Layer. Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and use the following settings: Amount: 400%; Distribution: Uniform; Monochromatic. Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and use the following settings: Angle: 0°; Distance: 20 px. Go to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast and use the following settings: Brightness: 150; Contrast: 100. Use Control-I on the rectangle layer to invert the colors of the noise texture, and then change the Blending Mode to Color Dodge. Duplicate your noise stripe layer a few times and move it, holding Shift, to different places. Create a new layer using Shift-Control-N, and Fill it with black. Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and use the following settings: Amount: 400%; Distribution: Uniform; Monochromatic. Now add the Patchwork effect using Filter > Filter Gallery > Patchwork and use the following settings: Square Size: 0; Relief: 0. Go to Image > Adjustments, select Threshold, and set it to 240. Double Click on the layer and use the following settings: Blending Mode: Screen; Opacity: 100%. Uncheck the Red and Blue channels. Now you will need to Duplicate the layer, Check the Red and Blue channels, and Uncheck the Green channel. Move this new layer, holding Shift, 60 px to the right. Create a new layer using Shift-Control-N and Fill it with black. Change the Fill option to 0%. Double Click on the layer and select the Stroke parameter. Use the following settings: Size: 25 px; Position: Inside; Color: Black. Now you need to rasterize the layer style: Right Click > Rasterize Layer Style. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and use the following settings: Radius: 4px. Now you will need to create color correction layers to make our image look more “VHS”. Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves. Duplicate your curves layer and put it above the first layer. I changed the curves to the way I wished. Now Double Click on the curves layer and change the Opacity of the curves to 35%. Double click on the second curves layer and select the standard Photoshop preset “Strong Contrast”.
