  1. Simulate the effects of a Lomo camera. Photos taken with a Lomo camera have high contrast, twisted colors and a noticeable vignette. EDIT: Changed picture for Step 7, added picture to step 3

    Step 1: Get a photo with a breath-taking scene or still-life. For this tutorial, we will use this photo of a feline preparing to pounce at it's prey.

    1

    Step 2: Now go to Effects > Photo > Vignette. Follow these steps on the layer:

    -Vignette [0.73;1.00]

    2

    Step 3: Duplicate the layer.

    Step 4: Select the first layer and apply the Black and White adjustment by pressing Ctrl+Shift+G

    4

    Step 5: With the first layer selected, apply the Brightness/Contrast adjustment by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C. Follow these steps on the selected layer:

    -Brightness and Contrast [-5;53]

    (You may want to adjust the brightness if it's too dark)

    5

    Step 6: Select the duplicated layer or the one that's not black and white. With the 2nd layer selected, apply the Brightness/Contrast adjustment by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C. Follow these steps on the duplicated layer:

    -Brightness and Contrast [-5;53]

    6

    Step 7: Now select the 1st layer or the one that's in black and white. Double-click the 1st layer to open layer properties. Follow these steps on the selected layer:

    EDIT: Cleaned up mistake.

    Step 8: With the first layer or black and white layer selected, merge the 2 layers together. Voila! You have now simulated the effects of a Lomo camera. :D

  2. With a bit of patience, a few effects, and super micro 8 size brush smudge-smoothing, it can turn a rough picture into a smooth and light-toneish picture. EDIT: I used a soft brush XD

    EDIT 2: It's gonna have to be a 8 to 11 sized soft brush with the strength of 1% to 6% to give it a nice edge smoothening
