Challenge - Digital Challenges : Love Iphone Style **Improve a Photo**
The original of these photos had too-dark backgrounds and overexposed foregrounds. To fix this, I simply turned to photo black and white using the gradient map tool (on the color palette, select white as your foreground color, and black as your background color). I then duplicated the layer, and used the gradient map again, this time using brown as the background color. I then adjusted the opacity to about 50%, and then adjusted the levels and curves. This created a vintage-y sepia look. To add to the vintage look, I ran Holly's vignette action.
