30 Creative Examples of Transparent Screen Trick Photos

The transparent screen trick is a photo manipulation technique that makes your laptop or computer screen appear to be transparent. The easiest method to achieve this is to take a photograph of what’s behind your screen, make it your desktop background, and then take another photograph. Though the process is simple, it’s tough to get perfect/realistic results.

It is, however, lots of fun and gives you a chance to stretch your creative legs — even if you don’t need this technique for client work, it’s a good way to sharpen some Photoshop and photography skills at the same time.

Enjoy this showcase of 30 examples of transparent screen trickery!
