To do this, you have to use quick selection tool to select the photo subject. In order to remove unwanted selection, set the tool to subtract to selection. Right click and choose ‘Refine Edge.’ Use the tool along with the edges of the picture to improve the selection. Right click and choose ‘layer via copy.’ Right click on the new layer and choose duplicate layer. Then delete the background layer. Create a new layer, move it below all the layers and fill it with a color. To create space, hold the Ctrl key to select the two layers of the photo and move them together. Select the first photo layer and go to Filter> Liquify. Use the ‘forward warp tool’ to extend the edges of the photo. Add a layer mask to the first photo and fill it with black color. Similarly add a layer mask to the second photo and fill it with white color now. Use the black color on the white mask to hide fragments and use white color on the black mask to pop up fragments of the first photo. Now, use the weirdest brushes to fragment the edges of the second photo with black color. The choice of different sizes of brush gives you different result. Select black mask and use white color to pop up fragments of the first photo. Lastly, you can use the black color on the black mask with opacity lower of 15% to soften the edges. That sums up the whole process.
I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will follow this procedure more often in Photoshop and be an expert in this field in the future.
