How to Create an Easy Dispersion Effect in Photoshop

If you’ve ever wondered how to make that cool ‘splatter’ or ‘dispersion’-effect on photos, like the ones you might stumple upon while searching for something about Counter-Strike back in the early 00′s or some techno LAN parties…. then look no further, because I’m going to bring you a step-by-step guide on how to achieve it! :)

First of all, you need a photo. I’ll advice you to stick with a photo taken in a studio, or simply just with a standard plain solid-colored background. The reason; It’s going to make your work alot easier in the end!
I’ve chosen this photo I did of my friend Mihalis. Its nothing out of the ordinary, and was made in under 30 seconds.
