Make an old looking photo.

Paintshop Pro Tutorials


Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge

I will be using this photo of The Almost.

Take your photo and duplicate it. (Right click on the layer > Duplicate)

Set the duplicated layer to Soft Light at 100% opacity.

Make a new raster layer (I’m not going to make a preview of that since you should know how.) and fill it with the colour #e2bb06. Set it to Hard Light at 28% opacity.

Make another new raster layer and fill it with the colour #fbf4cf. Set the raster layer to Luminance at 26% opacity.

After you've done that, duplicate your base layer and bring it top the top of the layers pallette. Set that layer to Overlay at 100%.

Now you’re finished !

it was pretty easy to translate this to photoshop, but the picture i used didn't really turn out old-looking. i think for pictures with certain colors it'd be awesome. but i like what it did to mine anyway =]

pretty good,but adding some grunge brushes would make it look even better

um..honestly. it doesn't look like an old picture. it just looks like a low quality photo that's been smothered in dirt...

NICE, thank you. And what would be really awesome is if you add a cracked crumpled paper texture to it. :]
