As cameras produce higher and higher quality of images, the desire for creating vintage and lo-fi looking images seems to increase as well. Regardless of why, the vintage cross processed look has become quite popular today.
In this Lightroom video tutorial, we are going to teach you how to create a vintage cross processed look without having to touch Photoshop at all. Now, while we will have more flexibility and control in Photoshop, I think you will find that Lightroom does a fabulous job creating this effect as well.
To see all Before and After versions of each image from this tutorial, please visit the Photo Album on the SLR Lounge Facebook Page.
