that 70's look

Hi guys, I'm taking some shots of a local band soon (family and friends) and I have a few ideas in my head of one of the shots I am after, but I need some help, in the execution.

The actual set up and lighting I don't think will matter, what I am after is getting that old 70s (and before) feel to the picture, a bit like the old cine film type effect on a photo,
a bit like this one , is there a way with photoshop?

Hope that makes sense?

Cheers in advance

Have a google around for a Photoshop Plugin Filter called " Technicolor " or something like that....Smile

Sorry I can't be more specific, Its been a while since I dealt with that filter.

I'll have a look, If I find it, " I'll Be Back " Wink

So Here its been hiding for a year or two.....Smile

Click here, Then select " Technicolor " from the list provided.

Checked this site out, Seems fairly safe...Smile Some of these freebie sites can be a pain..Sad

Anyhow its made by a company called Red Paw Media, But at this time they are not trading, Although the plugin is avail on the link, Via Brothersoft.

Boost the Red Channel in curves layer(from the midpoint, push it up towards the top left corner), push the brightness about 10% and then add a pale brown solid colour layer and blend it at approx 10% and use hard light.

That's the base that I use, just needs minor tweaks to get the final result.

You need to copy the add-on into the plug-ins folder for your photo editing software. You will find it in the program files.

Matt, I think the problem Jo is having is that the download gives you a .TAR.GZ compressed file which not a lot of people have too much knowledge of.
PM me Jo and I'll email you the un-compressed file, or you can go to the Gzip website and download their utility yourself.

I downloaded it, and unzipped it using WinRar, I got a CS file ready file which drops straight in to the plug-ins folder.
