Instantly, you’ll notice that in the little Google info-box that shows up on the right side of the results. Notice the image of Thanos’ Infinity Stone-encrusted gauntlet.

Add Avengers Disintegration/Dispersion Photo Effect
If you are interested in adding Avengers-like disintegration/dispersion effect to your images visit this link.
Then select an image saved to your PC and drop it in the frame provided.
Next, highlight and brush the area you wish to pixelate with your mouse cursor and hit the ‘Render’ button.
Immediately, the Avengers-like disintegration or dispersion effect will be added to your image. The complete process is straight-forward and requires no specialized learning or a detailed how-to tutorial.
Once, you have finished adding the desired effect to your image, and download and save it to your PC.
Please note that by default, the auto-render feature is on. It means you can create the dispersion effect in real time. As soon as you mark the area, the image will get pixelated. You can untick auto render to highlight more areas at once and then hit the Render button manually.
Apart from the above, there are other configuration options available like,
- Particle Size – A slider that controls the size of the pixels created. From left to right it makes the particles from smaller to more significant.
- Brush Size – The description is self-explanatory. The slider controls the size of the mouse cursor. By enhancing the size of the brush, you can highlight and affect more areas at once.
- Reset – The action resets your image back to the original state.
- Direction – The tool is visible as a small circle, just adjacent to the ‘Particle Size’ option. It indicates the direction where the dispersed particles will fly. 0 degrees makes the particles fly right — 180 – left, 90 – down, 270 – up and so on.
Previously, this feature was only available as a Photoshop action. However, now it can be accessed for free and with just a few browser clicks. Also, just because its a free feature, it doesn’t mean it compromises on quality. You can achieve even more impressive results as compared to a Photoshop action.
The tool is safe and secure for use as it doesn’t intend to store your images. Privacy is taken care as the complete editing of image happens in your browser window. The only shortfall that comes across as a significant drawback for this tool is its inability to resize images. However, the final download is the same as your original.
