This video covers how to create a nostalgic look with a combination of desaturation, vignette, grain, and texture.
- Sometimes an image wants more color,…and maybe sometimes it wants less.…In this movie I'm going to create a nostalgic look…by desaturating the image.…And do this, I will use a hue saturation adjustment layer…to start with.…One of the presets that we have is called old style…which takes me more or less where I want to go.…In fact, I'm not going to use this,…but I am going to just desaturate manually…going a little bit further than that preset.…In addition, I would like to add a color balance adjustment…that will move the mid tones towards magenta…and towards yellow, simulating the kind of fading…that you might get over time with an old snapshot.…
Now at the moment,…all of my pixels are very smooth and digital looking…so I would like to give them some grain…to make them look more like film.…I'll just collapse my properties panel…so we have some room beneath the layers…and right click on my background layer…to convert it to a smart object so that I can apply filters…in a nondestructive way.…I'll then come to the filter menu, to filter gallery,…
