Well, unless you think having an Adobe account is a catch. Anyway, apparently Adobe's tired of keeping the activation servers running to support legitimate installs of the 10-year-old CS2, so it's decided to just give it away. Sounds great to me. Photoshop teacher Howard Pinsky shares this quick 9-minute video tutorial on how you can use Photoshop to repair old and damaged photos. The restoration is done using the Healing Brush, Spot Healing Brush, and Clone Stamp tools. Learn how to completely repair an old torn photo in Photoshop! From tears to discoloration, we will show you how to fix it!

Virtual Cd Creator. Written by Steve Patterson. In this Photoshop Effects tutorial, we're going to look at how to do a bit of reverse photo restoration, turning a new or recent photo into an old photo, one that looks like it was taken many years ago, and we'll be doing it by combining several separate effects to create our final result. We'll be looking at how to replace a photo's original colors with a classic sepia tone, how to add a soft glow to an image, how to darken edges, how to add noise, dust and scratches, how to fade an image by brightening the blacks and darkening the whites, and we'll even see how to bring back some of the photo's original color when we're done. Lots of fun stuff!
Of course, as with many photo effects, the results you end up with will depend a lot on the photo you're using. If you have a picture of someone sitting in their new 2008 model car wearing the latest fashions while listening to an iPod, trying to make the photo look like it was taken 40 or 50 years ago isn't really going to work, unless your goal is to use the photo as proof that time machines really do exist. Here's the image I'll be working with in this Photoshop tutorial. The final 'old photo' result. Of course, there's lots of different ways to age a photo in Photoshop.
This, as they say, is one of them. This tutorial is from our series. Let's get started! Step 1: Add A Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer With our image newly opened in Photoshop, the first thing we're going to do is replace the photo's bright colors with a classic sepia tone, and we can do that easily using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. Click on the New Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers palette.
The photo's original colors have been replaced with a sepia tone. Step 2: Merge Both Layers Onto A New Layer For our next step, we need to have of our existing layers merged on to a new layer above them. To do that, with the adjustment layer still selected in the Layers palette, hold down your Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key, then while holding the key down, go up to the Layer menu at the top of the screen and select Merge Visible.
You can also use the keyboard shortcut for this, which is Shift+Ctrl+Alt+E (Win) / Shift+Command+Option+E (Mac). The 'Merge Visible' option under the 'Layer' menu. Normally when we select the Merge Visible option, Photoshop merges all the layers onto an existing layer in the Layers palette, which is usually not what we want to have happen since we lose the original layers in the process. By holding down the Alt/Option key while selecting Merge Visible (or adding it to the keyboard shortcut), we tell Photoshop to create a brand new layer for us and merge everything onto that new layer while keeping our original layers intact. If we look now in the Layers palette, we can see that sure enough, Photoshop has created a new layer above the previous two layers and has merged the other two layers onto it. We can see our sepia tone image in the new layer's preview thumbnail.
Rename the merged layer 'Glow'. Of course, you don't have to rename your layers if you feel you don't have that extra 5 seconds of your life to spare, but when you get into some serious Photoshop work where you could easily have hundreds of layers and they all have names like 'Layer 10 copy 2' and 'Layer 50 copy 7', you'll probably find yourself spending a lot more than 5 seconds trying to find the layer you're looking for. We'll add our glow effect next! Step 4: Apply The Gaussian Blur Filter To The Merged Layer To create our high contrast glow effect, we need to blur out our merged layer. To do that, with the 'Glow' layer selected in the Layers palette (I'll assume from here on that you're renaming your layers), go up to the Filter menu at the top of the screen, choose Blur, and then choose Gaussian Blur, which is by far the most commonly used filter for blurring an image in Photoshop. The photo after lowering the opacity of the 'Glow' layer. Step 7: Add A New Blank Layer And Name It 'Edges' So far in our quest to turn a new photo into an old photo in Photoshop, we've replaced the photo's original colors with a classic sepia tone and we've given our photo a soft glow effect which helps remove some of the finer details from the image.
The next thing we'll do is darken the edges of the photo. For that, we'll need a new layer.
With the 'Glow' layer currently selected in the Layers palette, hold down your Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key and click on the New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers palette. A new blank layer named 'Edges' appears at the top of the Layers palette. Step 8: Fill The Layer With Black We need to fill the new layer with black. To do that, we'll use Photoshop's Fill command. Go up to the Edit menu at the top of the screen and choose Fill, or use the keyboard shortcut Shift+F5. Either way brings up the Fill dialog box.
Use the selection box in the Contents section at the top of the dialog box to select Black as the color we want to fill the layer with. Also, make sure in the Blending section in the bottom half of the dialog box that Mode is set to Normal and Opacity is set to 100%. They probably are, but better safe than sorry.
Click in the top left corner and drag down to the bottom right corner of the image to create a large elliptical selection. Step 11: Add A Layer Mask We're going to use our elliptical selection to punch a hole through the solid black fill, allowing us to see our photo underneath, and we can do that by adding a layer mask. Now, whenever we add a layer mask with a selection active, Photoshop uses the selection to determine which part(s) of the layer should remain visible and which part(s) should be hidden. By default, anything inside the selection remains visible, while anything outside the selection becomes hidden from view. That means that if we were to add a layer mask right now with our elliptical selection active, Photoshop would keep the solid black fill area inside the selection visible and it would hide the area outside the selection, which is exactly the opposite of what we want. We want the area inside the selection to be hidden so we can see our photo underneath, while the area outside the selection remains visible.
