    ok, not quite but my niece asked me to create an image of her that looked like an old photo of a ghost, what do you guys think. Any tips on making the photo look old?

    i think youve done a great job making it look old- the bleak colors and grain help alot, maybe dropping some more color or brightness could help?

    Thanks a lot guys, she really liked it. As for the ghost effect I just stopped down so I could take a long exposure and got her to move out of the way half way through.

    Only thing to make it look older is getting rid of that newer chair, and maybe adding some dust/scratches to it.

    For some unknown reason, echo.cx refuses to open photos up for me. Not even the "non-direct approach" will work... :(
    Not to be able to see a photo by pursuer kind of ruins my morning :cry::cry::cry:

    Well done, the effect, conversion and even apart from the effect well framed and good expression, she looks like a ghost bored of haunting.
