As we know, the glitch effect is more than just a digital aesthetic, giving us trips down memory lane and also a glimpse into the future. From The Matrix to the nostalgic lines that move horizontally on old TVs, the number of searches for the super trendy glitch effect keep increasing.

- Click on Filter, select Fringe and set it to any negative amount to achieve a similar effect to mine. I went with -37 for this photo.

- Adjust the slider under Bloom to 22 to create an overall brighter effect. If you like the look of it, hit Save and download your edited image to your designated folder.
And we’re done! Here’s what my end result looks like:
