Need quick help

This is for part of an album cover.

The photo was taken using a Nikon D40X. I need to make it look, I don't know... less digital crisp, and more warm film. More professional, I guess.

I've got the retouch down (for the past 10 years, professionally), and have made the picture look great on another template. The background is totally blacked out in that one. I just can't shake that look. They want it to look more filmy, I'm guessing. Not just grain, the warmth, too. I guess, think "album cover", and suggest away! haha

Thanks guys!

(first post. been doing this for years. glad I found the site!)

PS... the album cover is for my band's new CD, haha.

and PSS... 100kb min. for attachments is a little lame.

I have a great lightroom control that might do the trick, if you want to link me to a HQ image of it, I'll be happy to give it a go.

tbcgregory, welcome to RetouchPRO

After ten years I guess it is time to learn how to use the save for web feature in Photoshop...

You can post a fairly large pictures which is under 100k using the save for web function in Photoshop as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link, but also please keep an under 100K version here (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).
Alternative Image Hosts if you do not have your own site are: ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO) or mediafire.com (100 Meg per file, free)-- then post a link here in the thread to the site that is hosting your larger image.

I have attached an under 100K version which I have played with using shadow/highlight filter to show the save for web capabilities and to see how much "Retouching" you have done to the picture... Hmmmm!

Re: Need quick help

You got me!

haha.

And after all your time on earth, you can use your reading comprehension skills to see that I said I had retouched it on another template. Mainly, the one that gets printed. Sorry if I wasn't too clear, but I did say it. I posted the original file, scaled down. Sorry I didn't do the save to web feature. I don't work with a lot of web stuff. I work for hundreds of professional photographers accross the country, most of which have their stuff printed in our lab, not posted on the web.

Thank you for showing me the flaws I didn't retouch, but did. Can't pull one over on you.
