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 ...

The hatching can be achieved by using pattern.Once you create a pattern,you can control the direction of hatching as required. Below are the steps to apply hatching to your drawing (I will apply this in a simple rectangle). Create a closed path for which hatching is required(I have used a simple rectangle) Now draw a line using pen tool and convert the ...

Start with a normal Drop Shadow. Play a little with the settings (Don’t forget to use Spread). Right-click the Effect Layer and select Create Layer (Ignore any warning dialogue). Merge the new Drop Shadow layer with your white background (Or create a Smart Object from them). If you like you can tweak the shadow a little bit with Curves or Levels to make ...

You can use an online tool like this triangulation tool or this Delaunay triangulations tool with images that you upload. Another option is Kubist, another online tool that does pretty much the same thing.

On paper, they'd be high-contrast duotones. Or, possibly monotones printed on colored paper with opaque inks (such as via screen printing). Possible other ways to describe the effect would include: photocopy (tends to be high contrast, one color) halftone (not really a style shown here on screen at this size, but part of the aesthetic ala newspapers) ...

This is how I would go about it. You will need an image in good resolution (as big as the zoomed part). Pardon my very simple samples, I hope you can get the idea anyway! Open the image. Make a round selection of the part you will want zoomed in using the Elliptical Marquee Tool. Once you have your circle selected, copy and paste in a new layer (one way ...

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... You can find free-to-use things like this at http://subtlepatterns.com/ and http://www.transparenttextures.com/ To ...

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.

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 ...

Make a greyscale image, save as either a JPG or TIFF (doesn't work with EPSs) and import into InDesign. Colour the box as usual, and use the direct selection arrow to colour the image.

The effect in question is a glow. Glow is colour radiating from the object edges, to either inwards or outwards, usually with a blur making the colour a gradient fading away. As in here, this is a white glow with 5 px blur made with Illustrator: Despite the name, glow doesn't have to be an actual glow, but can also radiate darker colours, and at least in ...

By using mnxd's solution as a base, you can make this really manageable by using the Appearance palette. select your shape; give it a gradient with a light top and a dark bottom, just like in mnxd's solution; open the appearance palette and select the existing fill; choose Add New Fill from the palette options or click the duplicate selected item button: ...

Two Objects, one has a gradient, the other one is slightly smaller (subtract the stroke outline from the original object to achieve this Use the Offset Path effect with a negative value) and has a feather effect. Try out different different feather values to make the edge softer/harder

The answer is (as Mark Read said in the comment) to use the Gradient Mesh tool. Click where the points are shown in this image. You can then select them with the Direct Selection tool and set each points' individual color. The ones on the top has a lighter color, and the bottom ones is darker.

You are looking for too quick a fix. Logo creation takes time. This effect can be achieved quite easily though. Draw a rectangle roughly the size of your final shape and fill it with overlapping circles up to the edge of the square. Make sure there are quite a few smaller circles near the edge to fake the perspective. Colour all the circles random colours. ...

Use Object > Expand Appearance on the transformed 'group'. You might need to Object > Ungroup the result.

It is possible using Illustrator and using the photoshop effect built in illustrator.. please follow the following steps. place you image in your artboard. copy [CTRL+C] the placed image and past it exactly on the old on by pressing [CTRL+F] - now you have two images over each other. draw a circle over the desire spot. by the black arrow select the circle ...

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

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. ...

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 ...

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.

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.

That particular photo uses a blur as well as a subtle pattern overlay for the background image. The pattern is essentially a repeated, solid, small, white rectangle.

If I undersdand it, the closest thing would be "not have it", or, have the original element in a "backup layer" (just a layer that you leave there and don't mess with it, nothing fancy), so, if you've made a destructive operation with the "dumb object", and it would be troublesome to restore it, you can always recover the original and do whatever. But if ...

You should try doing that with the displacement effect. Go to Filters > Filter Editor... then add Effect: Image. Google for a fish-eye displacement map (it will look like a green-red ball) and upload it to the Image filter. Now add displacement effect. Route its first input to a Source Graphic (drag FX's triangle) and the second to the Image. Under ...
