The 1st thing you want to do, after opening and saving your image, is create a new layer. A new layer is important because you want to preserve the original file in case of any mishaps. Name your layer whatever makes sense to you. We named ours original layer 1.
Towards the lower right corner you will find a small round icon
A small new pop up will appear to the right of the image. Use the black and white arrows to make adjustments to your photos.
For the next step, go back to the black and white icon from the previous step. Click and find "Curves".
A small new pop up will appear to the right of the image. Drag the curve line up or down to adjust your photo.
You can also go to the RGB drop down menu and select individual colors you wish to fix or enhance. For instance, if you photo appears a little too pink, you can adjust by selecting Red from the drop down menu and moving the curve line down and away from the middle.
If you don't like the results or wish to delete a layer or action, simply drag the unwanted layer/action towards the trashcan icon on the bottom right.
Save and enjoy!
Come back next week for a cheat sheet on giving your photos that vintage look.
