Picture This: 1 Step Photo Effect

You don't need to spend hours in Photoshop to make your photos look like the pro's. You can achieve a cool retro effect with just one step. Yup, it's that easy!


Instructions:
Open up your pic. Create a new Adjustment Layer (go to black and white circle icon). Select the Color Fill option and pick a rich shade of blue. Set it to Exclusion with 25-30% Opacity. And you're done. Enjoy your new photo.
(You can play around with the different colors to achieve different looks)

Really cool. I've never done that.
I'd always mess around with the Colour Balance. This seems easier. :)

Hahahha! Well that was easy. I like to give my photos a warm hue or a cool hue depending on the look I'm wearing. Love this tip though :) Gonna try it out soon.

I like to set mine to screen!
If its a really bright daylight picture I also like choosing a deep yellow toned brown.
