Workshop Note

How to do
- you need first a B/W conversion, the most simple way to do is to edit the Blue/Green/Red channels and to put these B/W version in three layers above each other adjusting the areas with the most texture by contrast/highlight-shadow ... and then to recompose the best parts (... later I will go on ... to go on ...) compare two layers, get the best texturing together erasing the bad areas with a soft edges gum from top layer, adjust contrast/higlights-shadow again to each other and merg on top layer .... now do the same with the third channel B/W conversion.

-Now you got the B/W where you can still adjust lightness locally with f.i. history lineair dodge.

- Add the sepia with the photofilter and add slightly texturing (noise partially loacally blured f.i.)

- put the result above the original colored one and change the opacity of the sepia layer

there you got an old photo
Enjoy
