Glitch effect help

#1
Hello! I am quite new to photoshop and have been experimenting with many glitching techniques over the past few weeks for my art gcse... I recently came upon a photograph and cannot figure out how to edit a photograph like this... 0C02B1E5-22E0-41EA-A10C-54C3FCD8A4B4.png

Hello and welcome. If your looking to recreate the exact same style of glitch lines, your in for a very long and drawn out process. These lines are not only multicolored, but they all possess tonal gradations and striations.

Not only do we see tonal variations but also congruent multi directional changes...

Simply put, there is no easy way to do this. I have ideas, but none that I'm willing to take the time and effort to explain to someone with very little experience with Photoshop. If you were an advanced user of many years I could get you in the ballpark. But as a newbie, I think you have bitten off way more than you can chew. The Gradient Tool would be good for you to learn............it's a vague start.

Sorry I was not more help.

I didn't even notice those tonal variations which just comes to show how much of a noob i am at this... *sigh* thank you anyway and i will definitely practice and experiment alot with those techniques! Thanks once again :silly:
