Dispersion Photoshop Effect
Create an explosive particle dispersion effect in Photoshop with a few clicks
How does it work?
Step 1: Load the Photoshop Action into Photoshop. You only need to load the Action once to use the effect endlessly.
Step 2: Brush over or fill in the area of your photo where you want to apply the effect to.
Step 3: Choose an effect direction and play the Action! From here, you have full layer control to edit your artwork.
You can choose from Up, Down, Left or Right directions to shoot the broken pieces off into.
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!
The Photoshop Action is compatible with CS3 and above

Important to know:
- Check you are using the English version of Photoshop to run the Action on.
- Check you are using a version of Photoshop that the Action supports.
- Watch the video tutorial to ensure you have your Photoshop file setup correctly. A link to the tutorial is included in the ‘Readme.txt‘ file in the download.
- Use high-resolution photos with the Action for the best results and to avoid errors. I highly recommend scaling your photo into the 3500px – 4500px range (at the long dimension) for the best results. Even if your photo is only 1000px at the long dimension, scale it up much larger.
- With Adobe Creative Cloud, you can install multiple versions of Photoshop. If you like this Action but is not supported on your version of Photoshop, you can always install an additional version of Photoshop to run the Action on. Once an Action has been tested and working on a version of Photoshop, it will always work.
- Use Jpeg or Png images to run the Action on. Other file types such as TIFF, BMP, PSD can cause issues with Actions, as Photoshop disables various features for different file types.
