Hi All.

would it be possible for someone to help me by doing a step by step instruction to show me how to make a photo look like is has been scratched with a coin or something like that or and object with a label turn or ripped.

Im trying to play with some photos to make them look like there are pieces missing so you can see the black backing but with the paper turn.  I dont even know if this is possible but it would be fun to mess with photos to make them look really old or battered or even better and old grudge photo where you try to remove someone but you scratch up the photo instead. I am trying to help my son with an art prodject but dont know where to tart.  thanks very much for any guidance.

There are tons and tons of tutorials on youtube showing how to distress, grunge, etc. a photo. Maybe try there before asking folks to create a new guide for something already in abundance?

Scratched is easier because the original image is not warped. Every pixel stays in the same place

So you can simply overlay scratches onto a photo.

 

Taking this good quality original image

You could search Google for 'white scratches on black background'

Something like this

Could placed above the original and its Blend Mode set to Lighten

If you load Kyle's Megapack brush presets and search for Scratch it finds some possibilities

This is the same picture using the Wood Scratch preset

Find a brush preset with a rough outline.  Add lots of Angle jitter and a touch of Scatter jitter

Give it some depth with Layer Style > Inner shadow

Does that get you started?
