1.
 

Open a picture you want to tear.

 
 
2.
 

Press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer and then select the original layer.

 
 
3.
 

Press D then X to choose a white foreground color, then press Alt + Delete to fill the original layer with white color.

Select the new layer (see picture).

 
 
4.
 

Choose the Eraser Tool.

 
 
5.
 

Right click the picture the find and select Rough Round Bristle brush (see picture).

 
 
6.
 

Now start clicking and erasing the area you want to tear away.

 
 
7.
 

Continue erasing you might want to go more then once to completeley erase some areas.

Just leave a bit of a grey edge as you can see on my picture and delete the rest.

 
 
8.
 

Let's apply the final effect.

In the menu click Layer, Layer Style and choose Drop Shadow...

In the new setting window choose the same settings  as I did and click OK.
