Create a realistic old vintage photo effect in Photoshop

Photographs are timeless. In fact, it’s often our old, weathered and faded photographs that we treasure the most. Snapshots from a bygone era fill our hearts with nostalgia and romantic notions of how much simpler life must have been.

While today’s digital cameras continue to amaze us with their technology, there’s still something magical and irreplaceable about old, vintage photographs. And not only do we love to look at them, but we also love to recreate the look of them in programs like Photoshop!

In this video from Photoshop Essentials, Steve Patterson shows us how easy it is to take a newer, recent image and send it back into the past, transforming it into an aged, vintage photograph using nothing more than the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop CC.
