After seeing some very old postcards I thought I would try to ‘age’ a modern picture to try to get a similar effect. (using PSP and Photoshop)

    You did a great job here Yampi – perfect colour tones. I would love to see the before shot.
    Faving this one.
    Love Colleen2012

  • Thanks Colleen, I think these type of shots always look better in black and white or sepia, somehow the subject and true colour don’t seem to look right. I may try to do a ‘hand coloured’ job on one of them, see how it looks.

    this is wonderful, superb work, it really is like looking back in time !

  • Thank you Annette, the museum where this was taken makes a lot of effort to make the place look authentic. Somehow ‘modern’ colour pictures don’t look right so a little texture and sepia toning seem to suit the images. My aim was to make the picture look old so I’m specially glad you think it’s like looking back in time.

    This is excellent work! You have ‘aged’ your modern picture perfectly to create your ‘old postcard’. Great choice of subject too. – Rachel

  • Thank you very much, the museum is chock full of interesting stuff, the processing was largely experimental, If only I could remember how I did it.
