Dispersion Photoshop ActionThis action will break apart pieces of your photo and shoot them into a direction of your choice. Do not spend lots of time trying to create this effect manually, get it done in seconds with only a few clicks.
You simply brush in the areas that you want to disperse and play the action! You can choose from Up, Down, Left or Right directions to shoot the broken pieces off into. Creating such an advanced effect has never been this simple and fun.
TIP: Create lots more parts by duplicating layers! Simply select a layer and hit ‘Ctrl+j’ to quickly duplicate it. You can even duplicate the entire ‘Parts’ folder by selecting the folder and hitting ‘Ctrl+j’. You can then move the entire folder around. You can also scale the parts by selecting a layer and hitting ‘Ctrl+t’ – then use the bounding box handles to scale it up or down!
