MAGAZINE SCAN grade/colour treatment

Trying to recreate that magazine scan feel.

Please view "image 1" to see the reference!!!

"image 2" is my file (retouched).

"image 3" is what i managed to get after printing off and scanning in (on a low quality printer/scanner)


image 3 is along the right lines but far to degraded. So id rather see if there is a good way to recreate in PS.

Re: MAGAZINE SCAN grade/colour treatment

Most of the 'magazine feel' you see is the following:

1. Increase black point with levels
2. Increase contrast
3. Add yellow to highlights
4. Add blue to shadows.
5. Add noise.

Re: MAGAZINE SCAN grade/colour treatment

I suppose you are correct.

But there is still that "glaze" over the pic, which i suppose would be the laminate on top of the paper in the mag.
Its being fairly pedantic i know, but its more along the lines of adding a totally new layer of some sort and lowering opacity right down or something..
does that make any sense?

That's exactly what this is...

Achieve it by making a new Levels adjustment layer and increasing the black (left) side of the output level bar to something above zero in the colour or RGB channel of your choice.

Which arguably yes, is just the same as adding a new layer fill with low opacity. It brings the black point up, making the darks lighter so that black is no longer black but dark blue, or dark brown, or dark grey.

There's thirty ways to acheive everything in Photoshop!
