For this quick tip in colouring in Photoshop you will need brushes that have shading – solid shapes will not work with this method.

Using just a few colours and different layer modes you can create art with subtle shade differences, and the variances are almost endless – this is a great way to learn how the layer modes work, you can adjust, readjust and adjust again until you achieve the desired effects.

Vintage Effect Photoshop Tutorial

In this tutorial we will be using some adjustment layers in Photoshop to create a vintage effect on a modern photo.

After Step 4, if you don’t wish to continue or don’t have the time to, you can download the .psd file and apply it to your image. As the effects are presented in the individual adjustment layers, you can tweak them as necessary for the image you are working on.

Also, for the curves layer I have created a Curves preset which you can also download. The download link for the Curves preset is available in Step 8, and the .psd download link can be found at the bottom of the page.
