the other way around

Hi everyone,

This is a page from a CD sleeve I did recently for a blues band. The concept of the work was based on giving the sleeve an aged and a bit destructed look. This is the final result of one of the photos from the sleeve.

cheers!

Looks excellent to me! We had a Challenge photo a few years ago -- idea was to make it look like an old time-damaged photo that would need retouching or restoration -- I think most of us agreed that it was more difficult than we had imagined to make it look genuinely aged/damaged.

I had to re-read your post to make sure I understood it correctly because the "After" photo looks so much like our typical "Before" photos that need our help -- good job!

Excellent work! Very realistic. Did you actually synthesize the wrinkles from scratch or did you do something like scan in a wrinkled piece of photo paper?

wrinkles

Thanks for your reply!

To make the wrinkles and torn pieces on the picture, along with the aged texture, I used scans of pieces of paper and cardboard I have. Making a copy of one of the channels (in this case green or Magenta and Yellow) I collected the information I wanted with a levels adjustment to reach the contrast that I liked on the channel. Afte this, I made a selection from the channel copy and applied it on the picture's layer mask. After making the color corrections I found suited for the job, I applied another texture on the layer set mask to enchance the old paper texture and to simulate a ripped part on the top right hand corner of the image.


Cheers!
