Someone asked me how I got the sunbleached faded photo treatment from this photo (mouseover to see original):
Here is the treatment:
- Enhance, Curves, Color Monochrome, Sepia Toning: This is from my “vintage film preset”
- Exposure, Edge Sharpen: intensify the contrast even more
- Highlights & Shadows: Recover some lost detail
- Levels: auto contrast (not auto-color as it will remove the “vintage” lok
- Intensify Contrast: Lost that setting. It’s a brush so it’s not needed anyway.
