Make Your Photo Old

To make my photo old, I followed the strategy by this Fotor “How to Make Your Photos Look Old” web page.

  • Lower contrast
  • Increase brightness
  • Lower saturation
  • Increase tint
  • Add vignette around edges
  • Increase grain… noise
  • Add texture
  • Blur background

The first five I could do with my iPhone in the Photos app. Then I brought the image into Procreate to add, with brushes from Lisa Bardot Texture Shaders, grainy texture, a bit more spots of texture, spotty noise, and, with Procreate’s select Gaussian Blur adjustment, a bit of blur on the left hedge and top of lighthouse. I also added a layer of orange-yellow on low opacity for better tint.
