Making photo look older.

A friend of mine gave me a photo of himself and asked me to make it look older. That was the first time I was doing such thing so I did my best to check what can I do. Here is what I came up with:

How do you like it ? What should I correct ?

suchy, is it really that cold in poland?

This is excellent. Good stuff! I especially like the markings on right side of his jacket. It's a touch too sharp and I don't know about the sepia, but otherwise you nailed it.

btw, if you like this kind of thing, do a search for ps grunge brushes on the net. You'll find all kinds of interesting brushes you can add to your brush collection that'll help make this and other projects look really nice.

good luck,

Making photo look order


I really like what you did to make the photo look old but there is some fading of the colors I miss which is almost always present. My english is not that great so to give an example of what kind of fading I mean take a look at following links:
