In this tutorial we are going to learn how to give a grunge dirty retro photo effect to any image in a quick and easy way. For this matter we are going to use the awesome Perfect Effects Free Edition Photoshop plugin, which is, by the way, absolutely free.
I posted about this plugin a while ago and many visitors didn’t believe it was actually free. Mostly everybody expected a crippled trial or a time limited demo.
Well this is not the case. Perfect Effects Free Edition plugin is absolutely free. It is a slimmed down version (25 effects) of the full Perfect Effects 3 plugin with (300+ effects). So, you end up having an awesome piece of free software with 25 cool effects just for you at no cost. And if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade to the full version, or buy more presets in the OnOne Software Marketplace.
This tutorial will show you how easy and fast is to apply really cool effects using this plugin. You won’t need to play around with curves, levels or any other complex command. Just a few clicks and you are done.
