Screencast: Giving A Photo The Grunge Look

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

This is a quick screencast I made that captures a photo retouching session I did on a picture of my son. I was messing about experimenting in Camera Raw and Photoshop, trying to take a perfectly good photograph and give it a retro, 1970’s grunge feeling. I think this was inspired by the look on my son’s face.

Normally I use Apple Aperture to do my photo post-processing, and it is great for almost all basic color-correction and image processing tasks. But for real retouching or more extreme photo color effects, it has to be done in Photoshop. Therefore it made sense to do the primary basic color set up in Camera Raw prior to opening in Photoshop.
