Cool Vintage Tutorial

1 • Open the photo you'd like to convert. Make sure that it is properly exposed with reasonable contrast.

2 • Press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer.

3 • Press Shift + Ctrl + U to desaturate the layer.

4 • Press Ctrl + J again to duplicate the now desaturated layer.

5 • Change the layer blending mode (at the top left of the layers palette) to Soft Light.

6 • For some photos, the effect of the Soft Light blending mode will be to much. Simply adjust the layer opacity to your liking.

7 • Now, select the "Layer 1" in the layers palette. Adjust its opacity to anywhere from 50% to 75%, depending on the photo.

8 • Flatten and save.
