Vintage photo effects are all the rage in photography at the moment. Often they created in mobile apps or in Photoshop, but in this tutorial I’m going to show you a simple vintage effect that can be applied to images inside Adobe Camera RAW.
Aged and vintage effects tend to have a few things in common. First the image tends to lose some of its contrast and then there’s the trademark colour shift which happens in both the shadows and the highlights. All of that can be created with just a few clicks of the mouse in Adobe Camera RAW, but as show in the video, after the basic effect has been created you’ll need to fine tune the effect for your personal taste.
Towards the end of the video I’ll show you a couple of great effects to further enhance the image by adding some film style grain and a simple rounded corner border.
