Retro-Vintage-Tutorial by vachi-bumbernickle Retro-Vintage-Tutorial by vachi-bumbernickle
So I finally made a tutorial! My very first one! Though I have some homework and study to do...:giggle: But the last few days I had been thinking it'd be rather good to help out fellow artists around the globe, and why not doing a small, simple tutorial explaining a little bit, about a process I sometimes use on my photography! When I was only starting I found myself very intrigued over the process of great artists, and also the retro/vintage feeling many used, but I never really found a tutorial explaining it, maybe there must have been one, but I never found that one! So I decided to mess with photoshop...and end up with this, it took time, yes, but it felt very good! So, I wanted to share my small knowledge of photoshop here, in this simple and very basic tutorial! :heart:
I really hope you find it as useful as possible, and if you use this tutorial please do add a small link to this tutorial, so others can use it too...^-^ At least the first time you use it^^
I used Adobe Photoshop 7.0, I'm not really sure if this works with other versions, but I guess it must be similar somehow...:shrug:
Oh oh, and don't be afraid to ask anything you want to know, I'm always willing to try and give you a hand^^ Just post here any questions you have^^
:halfliquid:

EDIT: Ah! It's been so long since I did this tutorial --well, for me, =P-- I know it was kind of hard to read because of the color, so I'm hoping now there will not be so many problems :aww: But of course, remember to FULL-VIEW!! Good luck!

:clap:

I am using Adobe Photoshop cs3 to do this but I can't seem to be getting the brush thingy in the layers.

Secondly, as for your second step, do we click on the colors layer, then select "color balance"? Or flatten image first, then select "color balance" or something?

Thank you (:

The brush thingy? You just have to click on the layer you want to use, the brush in the box only means you're working on that specific layer (:

Second step: You click on the layer of your original picture. The tutorial was intended that way, but I think you could flatten it and play with the color balance too, and get a different effect. Though I advise the first thing if you're trying it out for the first time, then you can experiment with it.

Hope I made things a bit more clear, but be sure to ask again if you didn't understand something!
