Anyone know how to make a person look older? What filters should I
use, to let's say make a 20 year old look 70?

I'm not familiar with precise filter references in PS, but my suggestion is
to consider two main components of aging. Accumulation of body fat or
wrinkles, and gravity (features sagging under years of gravity).

Can you employ filters to emulate these? My sense is you might be able to
give the sense of a more porous complexion but insofar as wrinkles and
gravity, you'd have to make changes by hand.

I would agree with that though some of the body changes could be done with
the liquify tool. Find an image to compare with and use a small hard brush
or if you feel confident with it, the draw tool to draw the black lines
first on a layer. Duplicate that layer and invert the color to white,
schootch them over and up 1 pixel, play with the blending modes of both of
the line sets untill you get creases in the skin then perhaps the dodge and
burn tools to enhance the wrinkles, finally a nice hairy brush for a light
dusting of facial hair and perhaps a few whiskers. Don't forget the age
spots, I think the burn tool with a hard brush would make some marvy liver
spots.

Find a pic of an old person and selectivly blend the two images using
multipal layers, opacity and the clone & patch tools.

There may not be a filter yet, but give 'em 50 years. They'll look much
older.
