Very nice! What effects did you use? #1375020

Phyllis A. Houghton 5/6/2011 1:06:53 PM

Monique, I blended layers, first with a brown layer, then with a charcoal texture background. I got these free from http://shadowhousecreations..com/2010/04/4-layer-masks-set.html
His texture layers usually work better than mine. Thanks! #9392156

Expert use of textures and effects to create the illusion of an aged photo.

The barn, of course, is the perfect subject for this kind of effect. Excellent work Phyllis.

(It is kind of funny; I have spent hours restoring old photos to make them look new and you are taking new photos and making them look old.) #9396222

I have so many albums that have aged through the years, and I wish that they looked this good. This would be fun to try. Thanks for the information on how and what you used to achieve this wonderful aged photo. You are such an expert detail person. #9396675

Hi Phyllis;
This image displays an aged technique perfectly. The barn as it is set against the green hills is perfect for this effect. Perfect tones and a wonderful image.
