In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to turn a new picture into an old one using a few simple steps. You can use the same technique with other pictures.
- Adobe Photoshop
- Bridge picture
Open the bridge picture and reduce its size to 750px height and 1000px width by going to Image > Image Size.
We’ll now create a noise effect. Create a new layer, press D to set default colors and select Filter > Render > Clouds.
Now, go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and use the settings shown below.
Change the layer blending mode of the current layer to Soft Light.
We’ll now create a light sepia effect. Create a new layer and fill it with the color #e6e1cc.
Change the current layer’s blending mode to Color.
Create an adjustment layer by going to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels.
Use the settings shown below.
Now, let’s add scratches to the picture. Again, create a new layer, press D to set default colors and select Filter > Render > Clouds.
Select Filter > Render > Fibers and use the values shown below.
Now, go to Image > Adjustments > Threshold and keep the following values.
Select Image > Adjustments > Levels and use the following settings.
Now, select Filter > Blur > Blur More.
Change the layer blending mode to Soft Light and reduce its opacity to 70%.
Create a new layer, select the Gradient Tool, choose some appropriate colors such as #e5e5e5 and #000000 and drag a radial gradient.
Finally, change the current layer’s blending mode to Overlay and that’s it!
