It's called a Moiré pattern. It forms when two 'grid' patterns (loose term that could apply to geometric lines, dots, etc.) are overlaid with each other and moved. In this case, the two 'grid patterns' are the image, itself (which is geometric lines) and the pixel based screen-refresh of your screen. A similar effect is when newscasters would wear ...

Moiré of the pattern overlaying itself The pattern of the logo creates a surprising visual appearence of motion when it is shown on an LCD* and the view is scrolled by small fractions of the pattern size. The effect seen when scrolling the image up and down is a Moiré pattern. This kind of pattern appears when two regular line patterns overlay. The two ...

There are some changes in color. Tts difficult to see with naked eyes but if you import you object to photoshop and use eyedroper you can see some color variations. How you can achieve this effect: Create the pattern(There are lots of ways to create this if you don't want to create this manually). You can change the color of upper and lower strips ...

This is possible to do. You just need to know a very rarely used feature*. First turn on transparency grid, so that you can observe the effect. Choose: View → Show Transparency Grid or hit Shift + Ctrl + D. Next make a primitive shape like a box to design the effect on (due to text grouping it is easier to design on something else first). In the ...

The bars in the pattern are actually not of exactly the same width. Some bars are slightly thicker, adding a darker mean shade to the image in that location. This way the picture is visible by just a slightly darker mean color (like 50% brightness for the bright regions and 52% brightness for the darker regions). You can do this in photoshop, if you start ...

Go to work with the Clone Stamp to build up the flowers. Have them on their own layer using Clone Stamp All Layers. Then duplicate it, blur it, mask parts to remove the blur. Duplicate again, mask other parts... repeat. In this case they probably also did some blurring of a grey, yellow, and brown overlay (colors chosen to match the outfits). Using this ...

I created this example as per the settings below. Essentially a large faint drop shadow with a smaller but darker drop shadow over the top.

The moire effect and similar visual effects are a, likely big, part of the story. However, with LCDs you have an extra twist that depends on the LCD model: The reponse time (time for a pixel to change state to what is needed) depends on the grey levels (begin and end). http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/response_time.php#response_time_gif The lines, especially ...

Some effects like blur can not be applied on indexed formats. You will have to change the image mode to RGB first. In Gimp this is done by selecting Image > Mode > RGB from the top menu bar.

It's a subtle texture. They were all the rage back in 2010-2013 when "artisan" styling, Victoriana and "skeumorphism" were in vogue, and everything looked like this: Here's an article from 2011 about what was then an exciting new trend...

Pixelate > Pointillize, with a big cell size (20-30px). If you want a black background make sure you set Black as your background color before you run the filter.

I'm not sure this has a name (may well be proven wrong!) but i would call it a: "Transparent text box"

If you need to apply a texture or some text and curve it in a custom way, there is a way to do this without using any filter and it gives you also more control. You could try the "free transform" command on your image in Adobe Photoshop (Command + T), and then right-click on your image and use the "warp" command. It may not be obvious but some bezier ...

One way of achieving this is to do the following. Create your text in Photoshop. Hide the background layer so you can see what you are doing for this step. Add a stroke layer style and change the color to the color of your background and the size slider is to change the size of the boarder between the text and the fancy outline you're creating. ...

Hum... I basicly see: 1) Grayscale image. You can crop the black and white values using levels. Normally you just adjust it enough so the graph touches the borders, but in this case you need to move that graph further away. 2) Change the blend mode to multiply and use whichever color you need in a layer or background below it. The specifics would depend ...

The rippling filter acts on the current layer. Move your selection to its own layer. Select the desired area Ctrl / Cmd + C Exit -> Paste As -> New Layer Make sure that layer is selected when you run the filter.

Well, if I got your question right, it's a pretty simple principle: Create a layer with a gray background Create a blank layer over it Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool to create an ellipse and fill it with black (step 1 in image) Add a Gaussian Blur that looks just right (step 2 in image) Take the Rectangular Marquee Tool and delete half of the ellipse ...

The best way to make the droplets to stand out is to add new ones to your picture and exaggerate that effect. You can find a droplet or condensation image online, ideally grayscale, and apply it to your yellow tank using some layer mask (Gimp Layer mask) and blending modes. You can also colorize the droplets any way you want. Example in Photoshop (Should ...

You define the shape which you want to have cut out as a vector shape, and tell your print shop that you want that cut out. They send your vector path out to a die-maker (you'll need to pay for this, probably in advance) to have a die made. They'll then use the die on the printed piece.

There's certainly a few steps missing in your process. Doing this from scratch requires some skills and there's probably 100 ways to get to that result. Photographers use all sort of basic filters (or whatever they call it) that are not so special. It helps when the photo already has some effect from the start and good subjects too. A photographer could ...

The practice of drawing on frames of a film is called Rotoscoping. Specifically, manually altering each frame of a video to include previously absent visuals. This is not only used for things like drawing on film, but special effects as well.

Maybe not quite as versatile as the Pattern tool, but the Egg-Bot Extensions have a hatch fill tool.

You won't find any "automatic" melting/dripping effects. You need to learn to make your own by matching 2 or more pictures together, and using layers masks (or whatever it's called in Gimp.) The trick to show skin as if it was peeled off or removed somehow is to use a picture with bones, and the original picture. You can also use different bones and stick ...

What you have shown uses only three things, Smart Objects (you may not need it depending on how complex the design is) , Perspective and Distort , both found in the Transform menu (Ctrl + T). You mentioned your design isn't as clear, that depends on the resolution of the distorted layer and the level of distortion. This isn't quite something you nail the ...

I think that particular image may have been generated by a 3D application. Which one is your choice. Illustrator can do this to a degree, but it won't easily create the depth of the bump texture. You have to kind of fake it. Draw a couple random paths.... Select both paths and choose Object > Blend > Make from the menu. Then choose Object > ...

You can make a smart object, double click it to open it and put your text on that, save and then go back to your main document and distort the smart object. You can also use free transform like above but I have found better to use my method because after you distort you can still edit your text, free transform required a raterized layer.

I am not sure if they have name. The effect is different in the example sites you have given. In the first one, it almost appears as a lightbox effect with text instead of an image. I am referring to the box that has this text: "Pietro Mellini..." You could call that a "transparent overlay box". But wait a while and someone will provide with more accurate ...

The "Edge 3D" Extension duplicates the selected Path object to create a clipping path. This mask is applied to a group of smaller paths that have a Gaussian Blur Effect. You can see this relationship clearly if you look at the XML Tree in Edit > XML Editor. Unfortunately, this effect is not "live". Any changes to the original path are not applied to the ...

The Moiré pattern is part of the cause, but another factor (since it's more noticeable when you scroll) is the refresh rate of the screen, and the fact that not all lines update at once. It usually updates line by line horizontally, and this distortion combined with the Moiré makes the pulsating effect.
