70's aged look.

I would really appreciate it, if someone could give me some tips, or even point me in the direction of some tutorials on how to achieve that 70's faded look. Almost like an aged poloroid. Similar to these.

Thanks!

Also, not to be greedy. I'd love some tips on how to get that damaged photo look as well. Where it looks scratched, faded and maybe even stained.

Re: 70's aged look.

One tip that might help you to get that faded look is to open the picture in camera raw and go to the HSL/Grayscale and play around with the saturation levels. Particularly, increase reds, oranges and maybe yellows and decrease all others significantly.

Of course, standard levels will help you decrease contrast to taste.

To get dust and scartch effects, there are a ton of brushes you can download for free, just google it.

Re: 70's aged look.

I don't know if this what you are looking for but there are a lot of cross coloring plugins which could imitate 70s look
like this f.e http://kalifbanane.deviantart.com/ar...1662?offset=20
