Here’s a tutorial on how to turn an ordinary photo into a vintage, mottled version of itself in just three short steps – featuring the Lens Correction filter and the Brush tool
Open up an image and begin by adding the Hue/Saturation adjustment layer (from Layer>New Adjustment Layer). Tick the Colorize box. You can go for any colour, but for this sepia-infused vintage effect set Hue to 42 and Saturation to 25.
To apply a vignette around the edges of your image, duplicate your background layer and go to Filter>Distort>Lens Correction. Find the Vignette option in the filter and reduce Amount to -100. Set Midpoint to how much impact you want it to have.
The final touch to our vintage effect includes mottling. Select the Brush tool and choose the Oil Pastel Large tip. Set its Diameter to 2500px, Opacity to 10%, and your Foreground colour to white. Create a new layer and stamp the brush over the photo for this mottled effect.
