You don't need to spend hours in Photoshop to make your photos look like the pro's. You can achieve a cool retro effect with just one step. Yup, it's that easy!

Open up your pic. Create a new Adjustment Layer (go to black and white circle icon). Select the Color Fill option and pick a rich shade of blue. Set it to Exclusion with 25-30% Opacity. And you're done. Enjoy your new photo.
(You can play around with the different colors to achieve different looks)

  • Really cool. I've never done that.
    I'd always mess around with the Colour Balance. This seems easier. :)

  • Hahahha! Well that was easy. I like to give my photos a warm hue or a cool hue depending on the look I'm wearing. Love this tip though :) Gonna try it out soon.

  • I like to set mine to screen!
    If its a really bright daylight picture I also like choosing a deep yellow toned brown.
