I want to know how can I make this effect of lines. Thank you!


These are called scanlines.

  • Open up a new file, 3px*3px, with transparent background.
  • Paint a white pixel line from the bottom left to top right.
  • Edit > Save as pattern.
  • Open your file and open the layer settings of the layer you want to apply the scanlines to.
  • Activate pattern overlay and choose the pattern you just saved.
  • Set layer style to the opacity you want.
  • To reproduce those exact lines you'd create a 3x3px image and fill all but the top left and bottom right, and reduce the opacity.. but yeh. – Cai Aug 18 '16 at 19:05

It's hard to tell because the attached photos are showing different content, but I think it’s just an overlay.

So all you have to do is find (or create) such a pattern and lay it on top of your image with an opacity of 10–20%.


Go to THIS image, scroll down to choose the smallest size larger than your image, remove the grey so you just have the white, overlay it on your image in a new layer, and then lower the opacity of the layer to taste.

Note: you can use any image like this, I just am giving you the one I found. If this is for commercial reasons you should check for authorization.
