Vintage Effect using Adobe Camera RAW (or Lightroom)

TS_VINTAGE_RAWVintage effects are still hugely popular with photographers and there are no shortage of ways which the effects can be achieved. You don’t even need a program like Photoshop to create the look as many mobile apps will do it at the touch of your screen.

However, creating a vintage effect in Photoshop has lots of advantages. A bigger screen and more control over the effects are just two of many good reasons.

As a RAW shooter creating the vintage look in Adobe Camera RAW (or Lightroom) has also been possible but with less controls at your fingertips, it’s been a bit harder to do. All that changed with ACR 7.X found in Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4 because now we have the ability to control the curves for the Red, Green and Blue channels and that makes a huge difference when it comes to creating the vintage look.
