trippy psd v1 tutorial

This is one way to do trippy psd's.

This tutorial does NOT teach you how to do the trippy style in the preview picture. It only teaches you how to set up a trippy psd and then you choose your own distorts, so you will not end up with the same trippy effect as me. You will end up with your own.

The Steps

1. To make this easier for you, I made two PSDs for you to download. This will help you skip soooo many steps. They're each the same thing, but one is with fill layers and the other isn't. For some reason some photoshops don't work as good for trippys when they're not fill layers and some work better when they are. This way you have both

Open whichever PSD and choose horizontal or vertical. I chose vertical. This is what my document and layers look like for both psds:
(these pictures were resized for tutorial purposes)

2. Click on the first layer. Click on "Filter >> Distort >> You'll see a ton of options pop up. Choose whatever you want. Play with the settings.

(TAKE NOTE: If you're using the PSD with fill layers than you need to click inside of the little preview before you use a distort!)

What ever you do to the 1st layer, must be done to the rest.
For example, I used the glass distort on the layer with color #1, so now I have to use that EXACT same glass distort on every layer.

TO MAKE THIS EASIER, photoshop should have saved your last distort. I'll click Filter and now a glass option should be at the very top because I JUST used that Filter.

This is the glass distort with my first 2 colors.

This is the glass distort on all 4.

3. Now you have to continue with random distorts until you find something you like. This takes time and luck lol. Don't give up trying!
