Looks like it was shot on film and processed in a dusty dark room. :)

First I did this tutorial on Veerle's blog:
http://veerle.duoh.com/blog/comments/ph ... ge_effect/

And then I played around with more adjustment layers and I changed some settings. ;)
I have made some more, but I like these three best :D

I really like the contrast between the field and the sky in the second one. Gives it a very ominous feel :)

looks good. maybe you could add an actual frame and crinkle the edges or add a little grunge to it. :) Just a thought. Looks good!

I am new so do I start a new thread or continue with the same topic?
Here is my photo with vintage effect. The flower is from my garden and the photo has been resized.

@Rose,

I don't really see the vintage effect in your photo. It is there but not that obvious. And the white frame is way too big. The copyright is a bit distorting. A you anxious that someone will rip your work?

@zaiah, thanks. I'll try that one out

If you did put copyright on work in Photoshop i suggest you create the copyright text then click on Layer>Layer Style>Blending Options and where it says "General Blending" change the opacity to something like 30% instead of the 100% that's already set.

SB Thank you for your tip on copyright. I have a new AOC LCD monitor (feb.) so I am adjusting to the new colour now. Rose

Can i be really thruthful with you here? i honestly can't see the difference between the two images. The only difference is i see you've done the copyright to the top left...but even that is very very faint which isn't such a bad thing however this could be easily removed.

And while i'm at it i'm going to ask you something completely off topic here. Where in New Zealand are you from? i've just come back from there and loved it! such a beautiful country.

I decided to create a tutorial out of this seeming as the current tutorial section needs some new turorials.

We live in Christchurch. South Island and it is a beautiful sunny summers day here. That photo is taken from St Andrews Hill, Mt Pleasant.

Ok. I will have to find another tut with vintage effect. Can you suggest an easy to follow tut?

Next week we change our clocks.

I lived in Christchurch for nearly 3 weeks. I loved it there and will be moving back within the next few years hopefully to live for alot longer.

I'll have a look for a good tutorial and link it to you shortly. Failing this, i'll knock something together and add it to the Ozzu tutorial section and link it. All time pending.

A good size city but lacks a train system, needs more larger companies and an small increase in population would be good too.
