Hello friends.. Once again we are back with another awesome yet simple Photoshop photo manipulation tutorial. Here in this tut you will be seeing how to transform a normal image into a old looking worn out 1930’s image. Here I have used few filter effects and some adjustments to make the image as realistic as possible. OK now let’s move on to the tutorial.
Here I have used one image and a texture.
Sanyasi II by Emre Rende
STEP-1 Open the image. Here I have used this image. You can use any image as you like.
STEP-2 Duplicate this image twice by pressing CTRL+J twice. Hide the original layer.
STEP-3 Select the top image, press CTRL+SHIFT +U to desaturate the image.
STEP-4 Go to Image>Adjustments> Photo Filter> Sepia and set the following sepia values.
STEP-5 Again go to Image> Adjustments> Color Balance and set the color levels as below.
STEP-6 Again go to Image> Adjustments> Brightness Contrast and set the following values.
STEP-7 Again go to Image> Adjustments> Hue Saturation and set the following values.
STEP-8 Now duplicate the original image once again, place it at the top of all layers, and press CTRL + SHIFT + U to desaturate the image.
STEP-9 Go to Image> Adjustments> Brightness Contrast and set the following values. Once done set the blending mode of this layer to SOFTLIGHT and opacity to 60%.
STEP-10 Now open the texture, place it at the top of all layers, and press CTRL + SHIFT + U to desaturate the image. And set the blending mode of this layer to DIVIDE.
This is the final preview of the image.
That’s it we have completed the tutorial. I hope you have learnt a simple technique of transforming a normal image into an old worn out image. We Will be back with another tutorial.
