Vintage Colour Palette

VCP ~ Download


 Just a little something I put together to show the vintage
tones I use quite often in photoshop.  When I need a colour
I just put the photoshop eyedropper on the square I want and
make a new fill layer then adjust the opacity and layer mode
to my liking.

If it may be of any use, feel free to download.

The after example 1 posted, shows the (RGB) green colour swatch
(170-167-112) applied at 86% opacity at Linear Burn mode.

I know there's plenty of actions to accomplish the same results
but I like learning the tools and their uses rather than the one
click quick fixes.  I find it fun to tinker.

 Sample 2 was composed,using (RGB) color (235-196-93)
set at 48% opacity and Linear Burn mode, plus the (RGB)
color (159-196-194) set at 38% opacity and Color Burn mode.

Thank you, as always. You are so wonderful to share your gifts with us.
I have your link button on my blog, and if I ever get my act together and do a post about my equipment I will for sure mention you as my go-to source for textures.

Have a beautiful day!

Thank you so much for sharing this! I too prefer to tinker and while I do have a few favourite actions, I do most stuff step-by-step instead :-)

What a great idea, Jerry! Why it has never occurred to me to save color swatches, I have no idea. I just keep reinventing the wheel every time. All I can say is "Doh!"

Thanks,
Jan

Jerry, that is a great idea of you sharing.
I have a stupid question though. How do I use that? I am a newbie to all this, even though I've had PSE for awhile now.

Thank you! I have PSE too, can you tell me what colors you used for sample 2 (such as yellow etc.) It won't come up if I use the numbers you mentioned, it's different in PSE. You are awesome! Thanks again!

M said...

Thank you!! It's great to understand what's behind PS actions. I'm deeply appreciative, I'll try it out immediately =D
