VHS Style Glitch Effect in Adobe Photoshop

In today’s Adobe Photoshop video tutorial we’re going to apply a range of adjustments to a photograph to create a distorted glitch effect that mimics the kind of warping you see on old VHS tapes played on VCRs and analogue TVs. We’ll cover a range of tools and techniques that will help us destructively edit the original image and replicate bad tracking, TV scan lines and colour fringing, which are all aesthetics associated with old video footage.

  1. That is pretty cool! I like it!
    I just remember, a, um, few years ago, we spent a lot of time watching television with a screen that looked like that and it was awful! LOL Now, we create the effect! Go figure!
    Thank you, Chris!
