Turn any picture into a 70's looking photo using Photoshop

A really quick and fun way to make any modern day picture look like it has been taken in the 1970's using our trusty Adobe Photoshop.

1.
 

Open a photo you want to make it look like a 70's shot.

 
 
2.
 

Create a new layer.

 
 
3.
 

Click to set the foreground color.

 
 
4.
 

Choose a neon green like color.

You can use the same one as I did, color code # 16d184.

Click OK.

 
 
5.
 

Click to set the background color.

 
 
6.
 

Choose a violet color.

You can use the same one as I did, color code # b229c6.

Click OK.

 
 
7.
 

Now choose the Gradient Tool.

 
 
8.
 

Select the Radial Gradient option (see picture).

 
 
9.
 

Now click at the beginning of the image (left side) and drag your mouse to the right of the document.

 
 
10.
 

You should get a gradient similar to mine.

 
 
11.
 

Now lower the Opacity of the gradient layer to about 30% and choose Lighten as a Blending Mode.

You might want to try other blending modes as well.

 
 
12.
 

Let's make the photo look even more authentic by adding a bit of grain.

Select the original photo layer.

 
 
13.
 

In the menu click Filter, Artistic and choose Film Grain...

Set Grain to 2 and click OK.

 
 
14.
 

And you are done!

Don't be afraid to experiment with your own settings it's the only way you will step up your Photoshop game.

 
 
15.
 

This is how the original image looks like.
