Grunge nostalgia

In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show you an interesting grunge effect.

To work, of course, need a photo. You can go to Google Images or delve into your collection, and you can also use this photo.
And so, open the file and press Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer. Then use the filter Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter – Blur – Blur according to Gauss) with similar settings:

Now look with the blending mode and opacity / shading. I stopped at Soft light with an opacity of 60%.

So, merge the layers into one and change the hue / saturation of the image using Image> Adjustments> Hue /Saturation (Image – Correction – Hue / Saturation) with the following settings:

Your image should look something like this:

Go to Image> Adjustments> Levels (Image – Correction – Levels) and put the following parameters there:

We get a similar image:

Press Ctrl + J again to change the blend layer to Lighter Color. Now go to Filter> Distort> Ripple (Filter – Distortion – Ripple),use the following parameters:

Follow on Filter> Stylize> Diffuse (Filter – Stylization – Diffusion):

And further Filter> Brush strokes> Splatter (Filter – Strokes – Spraying):

We have something similar in stock:

Now we need to arm Eraser with such parameters and remove the areas of the upper layer, which overlaps our image.

It turned out the following:

Merge all layers and duplicate the resulting layer. Discolor it Image> Adjustments> Desaturate (Image – Correction – Discolor):

Back to eraser and soft round brush (opacity about 25%, size 100 px) clear some areas.

Then, to give the image a cool shadow, create a new layer and fill it with color. # 011e36. Make a selection using the Oval area – Elliptical Marquee Tool, as shown below.

Select> Modify> Feather (Allocation – Modification – Feather) (Radius 47 px). Click Delete to clear the selected area.

Deselect the selection with Ctrl + D and change the blending mode to Overlap – Overlay, set the opacity to 50%:
If everything is correct, then your image should look like this!
