Making a Vintage Photo

Recommended Posts

I wanted to try giving a recent photo a vintage look. I had watched a photoshop tutorial at phlearn.com: phlearn.com/create-vintage-photo-photoshop (you can download the distressed papers from that tutorial). I wanted to try to do something similar with Affinity photo. I thought I would share my process for others:



A quick note:

—I should have mentioned that all my adjustments are below the gradient map so that the map colors all the adjustments (border, spots & textures, etc).

—at about 5:50 in the video I select an irregular brush: you find those irregular brushes by choosing the "Texture" option from the drop-down menu in the brushes palette.


Thanks for watching.
