How to get this look....again:)

Hello, i`ve come over this picture and like it a lot:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/4585995...7/in/contacts/

I my opinion it got this look or techniqued applied to it that it`s pretty common, and gives me a feeling of texture.
But i can`t quite get what she`s done to achieve this look, is it a solid color layer with some noise?? i`m not sure.
So please help me, figure this out

Try Lightroom. Then download a preset from presetpond.com Maybe this one http://presetpond.com/presets/lightroom/vintage-cool/ and then add a bit of grain.

My guess is Lightroom, but they could have done it in Photoshop.

Re: How to get this look....again:)

Hi thanks for the reply. The problem is that i don`t use Lightroom ,only cs4, and i would like to do it without any presets or plugins. Because i want to be more flexible.
I tried to add a black layer experimenting with different blend modes with some noise added,and masked it in. But i had no luck getting closer to the texture feeling the original picture has. Anyone else got a clue????

Re: How to get this look....again:)

Thanks for posting an image you want to try with, however the image in your OP is very light in tone and the image you want to edit is a lot darker in its tonal range.

I had a quick play around with your image, I think the main effect you are seeing here is either a solid colour layer set to either the "Exclusion" or "Screen" blending modes and set to a low opacity.

It may also be a duplicate of the background, then desaturate the layer and fill its layer mask with 80% grey. Apply the mask to the layer so you no longer have a mask then blur the layer very slightly, say 8-15 on the web sized image. You can then set the layer to either "Lighten" or "Screen" and adjust opacity to suit. To this layer you could clip a Hue/Sat layer or a Solid Colour layer to add a colour to the glow.

The grain can be done in many ways too, for the image I edited, I used a basic 50% grey layer set to "Softlight" with grain applied, then a Gradient Map layer clipped to the grain layer and set to "Exclusion" this gives the grain better depth and more a more chunky look. From here you can open up the blending options for the grain layer and pull the grain out of the brightest highlights and also a bit out of the shadows.

Here's a link to the edited image -
