Photoshop Tutorial - Using the Color Variation Tool to Restore Old Photos

You might have many reasons to change the color tint of a photo. In this Photoshop tutorial, I show you how to use the color variation tool to give an old photo a vintage look. This image is of one of my ancestors in the late 1800's. It's of poor quality, black and white, and has frayed edges. To clean up the white spots and frayed edges, I used the brush tool to give it a smooth background and cropped the edges. I used the color variation tool to give it a brown, faded color.

The Heart Remembers by Author Michele Huey

#Christianfiction
~ The perfect Memorial Day weekend story ~
A tale of enduring love & faithfulness, blending the Vietnam era with today!

About the Book
During her tour as an Army nurse in Vietnam, Evangeline “Vangie” Martin lost her beloved husband Seth, a Dust Off pilot, to the war when he was declared MIA. Vangie decides it’s time to move on and has Seth declared dead. She heads to a mountain resort for her fortieth high school reunion, hoping to reconnect with her high school sweetheart, but fate has other plans. The resort caretaker is none other than her husband, Seth. With no memory of his life before being shot down, he refuses to acknowledge his true identity.

Vangie must make a decision. Should she cling to the past and try to make Seth remember, or forget the past and accept Seth as he is now?


"Romance, heartbreak, laughter and suspense, all rolled up in a book that will keep you turning pages into the wee hours of the morning."

Kathleen Bolduc, Amazon Review

"I loved everything about this book, as it was true to life and showed how God intervenes in our daily lives to make everything work out for our good."
Sybil Nichol, Amazon Review

Photoshop Tutorial - Resizing Images

Over the next few months, we will be hosting free video tutorials on how to use Photoshop CC. Our goal is to post at least one tutorial each week. While working with new authors, one of the most challenging issues many of them face is having to promote their books when they aren't marketers, graphic designers or digital marketing experts. It isn't realistic to hire someone to resize, crop, and save images in various file formats necessary for each social media upload or website update. Therefore, we are providing these simple tutorials to help your projects go more smoothly.
