Question

How can I add crack to a picture in Photoshop cs5 (with or without using custom brushes) like the one below?

I tried with brushes, but it didn't look realistic.

Step by step, assuming you have used Photoshop:

  • Create a new layer, and draw an irregular line using the brush tool.

  • Zoom in and play with the line's opacity (you can delete or opaque certain parts), apply some smudge and also some shadows using blending styles.

Alternative, you can use a crack brush such as this one:

The 'making it realistic' part is up to your Phothosop skills. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to explain this part. It comes with practice.
