Now make a rough outline of the tear with the polygonal lasso. After generating the tear go to filter and in the distort sub menu choose the ripple. Now it appears as if the image was torn along that line. Now repeat the process for the tears you want to generate. This video shows how to make a torn image effect in Photoshop.
