Time taken – About two minutes!
In this tutorial I show you how to give your images a touch of vintage class.
Are you inspired by that old film effect? If you are, then here’s how to give your images a touch of vintage class!
EXPOSURE up slightly +0.95
CONTRAST down slightly -18
Take HIGHLIGHTS down to -18 and then boost the SHADOWS +24
Next, mute the WHITES a little -8 and mute the BLACKS a little more, say -27
Boost CLARITY to around +12 and drop the VIBRANCE way down, -71
DESATURATE a little -7
Flattened CURVE by dropping the top a little and lifting the bottom slightly. Its kind of a reverse ‘S’, but very flat. You don’t have to be perfect here, just give it a sense of reverse ‘S’.
Set SHADOWS HUE to around 53 and SHADOWS SATURATION about 14
Finish off by adding a subtle dark vignette, -10
And there you have it…
… and AFTER
