Welcome back to Deke’s Techniques. This week learn how to transform the Dunguaire Castle image from last week’s technique into a weathered black-and-white print with Adobe Photoshop and Camera Raw. We’ll balance the luminance levels to create the sepia tone, and we’ll add some film grain and vignetting. Let’s see how it works.
To get started, follow along with Deke in this week’s free video and use the companion text below to help with each step.
In Camera Raw 7, it’s located here inside the Color panel, and it’s called Remove Chromatic Aberration.
If you like, you can reduce the Opacity of the Smart Filter layer to take a bit of an edge off the sharpening.
And that’s how you take a full-color digital photograph and render it out as a kind of antique film photo using a combination of Camera Raw and Photoshop.
Members of lynda.com can check out the next movie in the series, Adding a weathered old-photo frame effect, and learn how to add a frame to your image. Plus, next week Deke shows you how to draw your own “grumpy bird” in Illustrator. Keep watching for more great techniques.
