    Hi CreativeCows,

    I’ve been messing about and getting fairly close to this style of image, but thats all I get, is close. I’m trying to figure out how I can replicate this look.

    Any bright sparks out there think they could help me out at all with any direction?

    Best regards,

    Most of the time, for images with great effects over them, how you start is very important to how you’re going to finish.

    For something like this you’d need:
    – A High quality, high resolution ‘Parent’ image
    – Copy selections of high contrast onto their own layers.
    – Lower the contrast but stick to the darker tones in your levels
    – Sepia/Color layer above set to mulitply/hue/saturation in layer settings.
    ( You could do that last step under Hue/Saturation Adjustments without extra layers )
    – Put contrasted layers on top layer
    – Add grain texture, low opacity, set to multiply.
    – Delete the white from grain texture using Magic wand (w) tool set to contiguous.

    That’s just a start!
