Creating the BlocksFirst, we'll create convert the image to blocks using a combination of Photoshop filters.
Step 1Open a photo you would like to edit. We recommend using a high resolution image of at least 1000x1000 pixels. It is also fine to upscale a low resolution image before using this effect.
Step 2Duplicate the layer (Layer> Duplicate Layer or Ctrl+J).
Step 3Activate the top layer and apply a Mosaic filter (Filter> Pixelate> Mosaic) with a cell size of 16 square.
Step 4Apply a Find Edges filter (Filter> Stylize> Find Edges).
Step 5Apply a Median filter (Filter> Noise> Median) with a radius of 2 pixels.
Step 6Apply a Minimum filter (Filter> Other> Minimum) with a radius by 4 pixels.
Step 7Finally, invert the current layer (Image> Adjustments> Invert or Ctrl+I).
Adding an Outline to the BlocksNow that we have the blocks created, we'll add a simple outline around them.
Step 8Duplicate the top layer (Layer> Duplicate Layer or Ctrl+J) and change the blending mode of the new layer to Screen.
Step 9Apply a Find Edges filter (Filter> Stylize> Find Edges).
Step 10Invert the current layer (Image> Adjustments> Invert or Ctrl+I) and the outline should blend into the image. One last thing to do is to reduce the opacity to 25%.

We're almost done with the effect. All we need to do now is add the connectors. This is a simple process using a few Photoshop filters.
