Create an Old Age Effect using Tone Enhancements in Photoshop
Today’s tutorial is a bit different. It basically focuses on one thing only and that’s color fixing. Here you will learn all about toning, sharpness issues and hue adjustments.
This tutorial will be specifically helpful for professionals working in print media because we display many things on the screen but we have to create an exaggerated graphic for printing because usually the routine paper snatches the life out of graphics. This tutorial is also very helpful for photographers. They can learn how can we add an expression into an average photo. These are the techniques which created the term ‘photoshopping’.

First of all take a duplicate copy of the image on which we have to work, then go to Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask and enter these values.
Then Go to Image>Adjustment> Shadows/Highlights.
And apply these values.
Here is a bit tricky work we have to do, Just take a copy of the working layer, then select Burn Tool from the Tool Box and apply it on all the wrinkles of the man’s face. This will enhance the characteristic of pessimism in the photo.
Now I selected Dodge Tool which will stroke around the eyes.
Make another copy of the working layer then Go to Filter>Other>High Pass and put these values and hit OK. After this Change the Layer Mode to Overlay. You should also notice the opacity level which is 92%.
Then Go to Image>Adjustment>Brightness/Contrast and apply these settings.
And we’re done.
