Code_Ember Posted August 16, 2008 Share Posted August 16, 2008 (edited) 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. Step 2: Now go to Effects > Photo > Vignette. Follow these steps on the layer: -Vignette [0.73;1.00] Step 3: Duplicate the layer. Step 4: Select the first layer and apply the Black and White adjustment by pressing Ctrl+Shift+G 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) 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] 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.
