Better in Photo Filter?

I just love Photoshop CS2.  Everyday I mess around with it and find different ways to alter my pictures.  I usually shoot all my photos in color and desaturated some of them in Photoshop.  I figured out how to add some color to some of my desaturated photos and used that method on our zombie pictures.  I also adjust some of the photos using Photo Filter.  It takes a modern day picture and makes it look like it was taken many years ago.  Some have just a hint of the photo filter changes, others are more obvious.  Here are some I was playing with:

Assay Office, Vulture Mine

The Domes

Rub-a-dub-dub, Vulture Mine

cabinet, Vulture Mine

School house, Fairbank AZ

Birdcage Theatre, Tombstone

Birdcage Theatre, Tombstone

Poker Room, Birdcage Theatre, Tombstone

Bee Apartments, Miami AZ

abandoned trailor, Morristown AZ
If you have any cool Photoshop effects to share, I would love to hear about them.

  1. Love the feel of sepia tones. Sometimes less is more.

  2. I really dig the Domes shot. Very stark, yet imaginative. Nice!

  3. Bubba--I like the look of the sepia tones too. Some photos don't need lots of color to be beautiful.

    ABeerfortheShower--The Domes are one of my favorite places to take pictures.

  4. I love where you're going with this. Our next big abandoned sites trip to all those abandoned towns, you can go nuts with these effects on the pics. I love the school desk one. For some reason, I truly believe that's an old picture from the 40s/50s.

  6. Thanks everyone; sis, I like the school desks too. It looks more like an old picture. I like the abandoned trailor and creepy tree picture too.

    Dale; it depends on where we are going whether she will bring you along.
