Final Result

Step 1

Create a new photoshop file with the resolution 1920px by 1080px.

Step 2

Create a new layer. Add noise to the new layer by going to Filter – Noise – Add Noise. Set the amount to 70%, distribution to Gaussian and enable Monochromatic.

Step 3

After you are done, you need to use another filter which is mosaic to create the pixelate effect. To do so, simply go to Filter – Pixelate – Mosaic. Set the cell size to 50. If you have done it correctly, you should have something like the image below.

Step 4

Now add a find edge filter to it by going to Filter – Stylize – Find Edges.

Step 5

You are almost done. Now to create the randomize colour effect, go to Filter – Others – Minimum and set the setting to 23px.

Step 6

Your background should still be in grey tone. To add colours to your background, right click on your layer and go to the blending options. Enable the gradient overlay style and change the blend mode to soft light. Add any type of gradient you want. For the example I am doing, i uses #4290c0 to #1c4f73.


Note: All images in this tutorial are re-sized for web optimization purposes. Hence it isn’t the exact 1920px by 1080px resolution.
