Vintage Fashion Video

By | August 13th, 2013|Tutorials, Exposure|4 Comments

Here’s a brand new video hot off the press. In this tutorial, Exposure is used to create a vintage style similar to what was found in fashion ads from the 30’s and 40’s. There are plenty of historic film tidbits included in the preset customization discussion. The result is an image that mimics the look and feel of old fashioned analog film.


Download instructions:

You can download the custom preset created in this video, below.

Right click this link and choose “Save Link As”. Save it to a location that’s easy to find, like your desktop. That should give you a file with the extension .f1s.

You will need Exposure 5 installed for it to work. You can download and use it in trial mode if you don’t own it.

Double-click the .f1s file to install and the next time you run Exposure 5, you should see the preset in the B&W Films Pushed folder.

    I followed your directions to download the custom preset for Vintage Fashion, but it did not work.
    All I got was the text edit instructions on my Mac. What step am I missing, or is the link missing something?

    Thanks Jimmy, you are always so upbeat! I have a question though, how do you adjust the overall brightness of an image. Something as simple as that, I can’t find a slider for. Thanks

      Hi Tracey,

      The parameters for brightness are located in Exposure 5’s Tone Curve panel. Adjusting the Midtones slider will bring the overall brightness of the image down. There are presets in the dropdown located at the very top of the panel. In the dropdown list are presets for underexposing, overexposing, and more. I suggest starting there.

      Thanks, Tracey!
