How to Use Old Photo Actions
It is very easy to use actions and I prepared in advance video on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-g839mq7VA which will explain you everything
you need to know to sucesfully run actions. To load actions in Photoshop, just double click on Old Photo.atn file.
Here are some additiona informations which can help you:
Althogh you can change every aspect (filter, adjustment) included in final effect I do not suggest you to change Gradient Map adjustments layer. Color values used
to map colors to shadows, midtones and highlights are picked from real old photos so it is desired to keep them as they are.
Do not run actions with layered in name in documents other then RGB color space (Adobe RGB (1998), sRGB IEC61966-2.1, Apple RGB...). To change color
space go to Image > Mode > RGB or from Edit > Convert to Profile. Note: you can not use actions with 32bit per channel images.
Here is list with changes made using Selective Color adjustment layer so you can easily find them in case you want to change something:
Old Photo 1 / Yellows

Old Photo 3 / Neutrals and Whites
