I've noticed in quite a few pictures an effect that makes them look somewhat 'vintage' and faded, and wondering how you'd achieve this effect in photoshop. Here are two examples of what I mean: Inked by *jaimeibarra on deviantART When The Tough fall in love... by *jaimeibarra on deviantART [not my photos] I was able to get a similar effect using solid, light green layers with the blending modes set to color and screen, with varying opacity. I'm not sure if there is a better way to do it. That brings me to my next thought - is this an effective way of processing a photo? Or is it just a sort of fad or something like that? I would always think to get my blacks a true black and have the white balance right on. Thoughts?
