Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an antique photo effect, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
In this lesson, we'll take a color photograph, and apply a variety of …creative effects, to produce a result that has the look of an old faded photo. …Of course, with an old photo immediately makes me think of a black and white image. …So I'm going to start by adding a black and white adjustment layer. …I can fine tune the overall appearance of the image. …Perhaps darkening or lightening specific color values. …And maybe I'll brighten up the truck a little bit. …And darken up some of the background. And that looks to be pretty good as a …starting point. And then I'd like to add a sepia tone …type of effect. So I'm going to turn on the Tint check box.…
You can see I have a basic sepia effect right off the bat. …But it's a little too saturated, and not quite the right color. …So I'm going to click the Color swatch. And in the Color Picker, I'll find a …different color. I'm going to choose the Hue option here. …And I think I'd like something that's just a little bit more yellowish, perhaps. …
