Hey there! I hope everyone is having a great Saturday. Here in Michigan it has been HOT HOT HOT for the past few months and honestly, I'm getting tired of the heat. I am ready for the cool temps again!
I have a fun tutorial for you today on how to create a vintage photo effect using my new Dreamy Photos 6, which will be in my shoppe on Monday.
First, open up the overlay 10 (nrj-dreamy6-vintage-10.png). Slighty size the .png down and add another layer underneath. Fill that layer with white.
Drag the photo on top of the layer that contains the vintage overlay #10.
Load the selection from Layer 0 (our vintage overlay 10). Then select the layer containing your photo and create a new Layer Mask. Make sure your selection is active before you create your mask.
Pretty, huh!? Well, we are going to make it look even more aged and cool! :)
With your photo layer selected, take the fill or opacity down to about 80%
Then duplicate the layer that contains our vintage overlay 10 (Layer 0). Drag it up on top of the photo layer and choose "Overlay" from the layer blend mode menu.
Next, duplicate your photo layer, drag it on top of your last layer and set the opacity (or fill) to 20%
drag it over to our workspace on top of all the other layers and give it a blend mode of Soft Light...
and viola! one very vintage photo! :))
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. My new Dreamy Photos 6 will be 25% off this Monday...
