Rustic look/hazing?

Hi folks,

Curves. Period. And if you don't know enough color theory to know what to add or what black point to raise... make it easier by adding solid color layers and playing with blending modes and opacity.

Re: Rustic look/hazing?

You can also make a copy layer of your original image, use the Hue/Saturation tool, click Colorize, and change the color to the tone you prefer. Click okay, then go and lower the opacity of that edited layer to 65% or so, until enough of the original color comes through, so it appears tinted.
Hope that made any sense. ^^;

To give the photo this old kind of look, you can try playing with curves (Blue Channel) with the settings in the attached image. The results will be very much like what you have shown. Thanks!

Photokit Color from pixelgenius.com has a number of presets for various cross-processing looks, which is what this is (for those of you old enough to remember film )
