How To Age Gracefully
A New Twist On Old
I hope your 2012 is off to a very creative start. If one of your New Years Resolutions is to add some new looks to your image portfolio, then you are in luck!
This week, I was working on a video tutorial on how to get a cool antique effect in Photoshop. I’ve tried several different ways over the years, but I liked the look I got from this technique- so I thought I’d share it.
Here is the portrait I started out with. I find the technique works best if you start with an image that has fairly dramatic lighting.
I basically added a texture layer on top of the image, then adjusted the blending mode. If you’d like to see the step-by-step Photoshop tutorial, you can view it on my YouTube Channel.
Here is the final image:
Want to give it a try yourself?
Just use the “SHARE TO GET” button below. You basically give a shout-out on Facebook or Twitter telling your friends about the technique and the texture file will download for FREE! Can’t beat that, huh?
Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
